Editorial Reviews

Review

“A wonder and a joy. ” ―The New York Times

“Compelling... Never deigning to transcend the genre to which it is clearly a love letter, this outstanding (and entirely teen-appropriate) tale draws its strength from a solid foundation of sense-of-wonder and what-if.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Beautifully crafted... Among Others calls to those who desire a wild, magical world in place of the one they have but eventually learn that their own lives are the greatest story of all.” ―Bloomsbury Review

“There are the books you want to give all your friends, and there are the books you wish you could go back and give your younger self. And then there's the rare book, like Jo W alton's Among Others, that's both.” ―io9.com

“An utterly amazing and beautiful book.” ―RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

JO WALTON's novel Tooth and Claw won the World Fantasy Award. The novels of her Small Change sequence―Farthing, Ha'penny, and Half a Crown―have won acclaim ranging from national newspapers to the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award. A native of Wales, Walton lives in Montreal.
