    A fun young adult novel. Diane Wynne Jones does a nice job of mixing humor and magic. I also really liked the narrator, I think she did a wonderful job.
    I don't think I agree with another reviewer who was shocked by the Lubbock being a "rapist". It's a big bug that lays eggs in people by stinging people in the back. A villain, to be sure, but I'm not sure I'd go so far as to call it a "rapist." If you're especially sensitive to that sort of thing you can skip it, but I think most people will enjoy the book.

    Story

    I enjoyed Diana Wynne Jones' other books, Howl's Moving Castle, Castle in the Air, and The House of Many Ways, and decided to try this one. Personally, I would recommend one of the other books to this one, they are simply more imaginative and fun. A Charmed Life seems like it is aimed at a slightly younger audience, and I would recommend it to kids who enjoyed "The Dark is Rising" series. The narrator for the book does an excellent job with the voices, and with keeping the right tone throughout.
