Harriet

Sounds quite extraordinary. All that fruit made me think of Goblin Market. Probably not my sort of book, but a great review!

Helen

Oh yes, Goblin Market! I didn't think of that. How embarrassing. :)

Thanks Harriet! Maybe it's not quite your cup of tea, it depends whether or not you enjoyed Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, with which it shares a certain humour and sensibility.

Lory @ Emerald City Book Review

I love that cover! If I had $3000 burning a hole in my pocket I would know what to do with it.

Helen

Heh, Lory, there's a problem I wouldn't mind having!

Stefanie

I finally bought myself a copy of this book the other day and it is all because of you! And the fact I had a Barnes and Noble giftcard. :)

Helen

I hope you enjoy it, Stefanie!

Of course, now I'm worrying that you won't... But I note the word 'finally'. I think that lets me off the hook if you dislike it. And if you like it, I shall preen. And be delighted that you had a happy experience with it. :) I hope you'll write about it, whatever your reaction.

Jenny @ Reading the End

What! That is a far better cover than my own. I've got to acquire that exceptionally attractive edition of Lud in the Mist. My present paperback is fine, I guess, but that hardcover is shinier and nicer.

Anyway, I absolutely loved this book when I read it five years ago or so. It's so whackadoo, and the writing is really beautiful as well.

Helen

I have bad news, Jenny - that particular edition will set you back 3000 of your US dollars. However, perhaps you are a multimillionairess, in which case I can't think of a better home for it than on your library shelves. I am glad you loved it too!
