That book

I can't stop thinking about Among Others. Jo Walton's newest. I wrote an extremely self-absorbed post about it on Ye Old Blogge last night immediately after finishing it. I think I owe it another post, a real review, something more than just ZOMG THIS IS MY BOOK IT IS PERFECT, because the plot and style are well worth examining, as they always are. I wish I were classier at these sorts of things, telling authors how awesome they are and what their books mean to me.



She said on her journal in a comment that she rarely hears that people like A Prize in the Game. This is nigh on unfathomable to me. It's such a perfect book, that one. It's so unlike the books it is related to, the Sulien books proper, but it's devastating and true and beautiful. And it really does tell you everything you need to know about Elen.



But really. Please read Among Others. Especially if you love libraries, or if chowing down on SFF was what you did every day between the ages of 13 and 17.
