    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUBNow and then I come across a book that is a distillation of what I like in fiction genre fiction in particular I previously raved about Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell and then some people told me they think it's a load of ol' crap It puzzled me a bit that some people don't see the greatness of the books I deemed to be great but then I realize that such things probably puzzle most of us we are all arbiters of good taste in our own little universe So given that after reading this book you may not agree with my assessment of it much to my astonishment I am going into rave mode againFirstly I am going steal SF Signal's one sentence synopsis A teenaged girl in 1979 deals with her witch of a mother faeries a difficult boarding school life and the joys of discovering science fiction and fantasyAny mention of boarding school and fantasy in the same sentence will tend to trigger

    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUBThis is one of those books that I think of freuently it has stayed with me Walton has blessed this work with a strong female lead and is minimalistic meaning that most of the action what little there is is subtle and underplayed Yet it is a hypnotic book to read Jo Walton does a great job of characterization economically describing the cast in such a way that the reader knows the populace yet there are few one dimensional characters Of course the aspect of the book that gets so much attention rightfully so is the ubiuitous references to science fiction literature Akin to Ernest Cline's novel Ready Player One the narrative at times takes a back seat to Walton's streaming sci fi reminiscences Whereas Cline took us back to the 80s Walton waxes nostalgic through a list of science fiction and fantasy greatsNo wonder now looking back that this won the Hugo it's that good 2018 This is a book for readers Walton's ongoing

    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUB “This is for all the libraries in the world and the librarians who sit there day after day lending books to people” I'm not uite sure how to describe this book what precisely it is but it has that something that is making me read it for the third time in as many years and each time it finds a new way into my heart “There are some awful things in the world it’s true but there are also some great books” This is a love ode to books and libraries and the magic of stories and the unashamed homage to so many science fiction classics and the perfect understanding that If you love books enough books will love you back “Half way” Glorfinde

    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUBBibliotropismExcellent YA reading with acute relevance to us oldies as well A fifteen year old girl from the Welsh valleys learns about life death sex love and friendship Handicapped in mysterious circumstances estranged from her mother for eually mysterious reasons Morwenna has to cope with everything from family blending to the trials of social isolation at an English girls’ schoolBut mostly Among Others is about Morwenna’s irrepressible attraction to books especially to the imaginative construction of alternative worlds in sci fi These take up where her younger fantasies of faeries leave off “We thought we were living in a fantasy landscape when actually we were living in a science fictional one” Faeries after all are very knowledgeable but they can’t do much in the world of people not without help Morwenna loves fantasy but despises allegory Things are what they are and are degraded by being made to stand for other things “Fiction

    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUBI keep going back and forth between 2 and 3 stars I should have really loved this book but I found myself annoyed than charmed Although it appears we're supposed to take the main character's story at face value and believe that the magic and fairies and her evil mother are real I found myself writing it all off as her way of coping with a mundane unstable mother and car accident I think what pushed me over the edge into disbelief was the scene with the aunts and the earrings I mean what was that except some belligerent child who's playing make believe and throwing a tantrum And we're supposed to believe

    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUBi am at a total loss about how this book got published this is not a book in the sense of a novel i mean it's the diary of an articulate well read sci fi diehard teenager talking about what she did and what she read every day for a year this account of her every day life is sprinkled with unimpressive encounters with fairies because apparently in this world welsh people are kinda down with spirit creatures the other reason this isn't a book is that it's an epilogue to a story we never get to hear mori our main gal is living with a father she barely knows and in boarding school havin

    Paperback´ Among Others eBook ¹ among pdf, others free, Among Others PDFEPUBI know what I was expecting before I had read this novel I knew it had won last year's Hugo and I've been working my way through every hugo and runner up since they started What I hadn't expected was an unabashedly delightful review of so many great science fiction novels from the last 75 years most of which I've also read and delighted over I loved Mor and was always very proud of her and who wouldn't be As long as you are a science fiction fan using magic as easily as breathing thinking magic as easily as reading you and I are her She is our Everyman So yes I do normally hit a lot of ratings at the five star level but is that because I research novels before I read them and only aim for the best Or is it because I always find something brilliant in everything I read Maybe both but I don't care I love books I love books I love books and my kinship with Jo Walton even though I have never spoken with her or even read any of he
