  This is a book about...

This book contains two stories: "The Magicians of Caprona" and "Witch Week." Generally, it is full of magic, mystery and lessons concerning certain social issues.

  I especially liked...

Charles Morgan of "Witch Week" because I could sometimes relate to him, and he cast an awfully wicked spell which reaped hilarious results.

  I didn't like...

absolutely nothing! This book is as good as it gets.

  When I finished this book I wanted to...

Create a magical story of my own. It inspired me so much that I felt the need to become a witch.

  This book made me feel...

vastly entertained, happy and thoughtful about some of the problems present in society.

  The author of this book...

Diana Wynne Jones is an absolute genius. She knows how to weave great yarns.

  I recommend this book because...

it is an awesome combination of mischief, intrigue, fantasy and humor. It's kind of like "Harry Potter" except that it doesn't focus on fixed character in each story.

  I don't recommend this book because...

If you think that "Harry Potter" is childish, you ought to not read this. But let me warn you, you're missing out on a good book!

  Further Comments...

I loved this book so much that I purchased Volume 1, and I'm also planning to buy Jones's other books.
