    Startling, unusual, and yet irresistably readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment.

    Eoin says: "Subtle Character Piece"
    "Slow, tedious and no plot."

    Would you try another book from Jo Walton and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Jo Walton’s story?

    Lack of a plot. Constant discussion of SF authors a pointless addition to story.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Kellegren did a good job with weak material.


    What character would you cut from Among Others?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    Hard to believe that this won a Hugo.
