Definitely not the easiest Diana Wynne Jones book to read. You can say that Sci-Fi is not my thing. But, the historical bits made it bareable. There was much too much of headache for me at the beginning that I put it down at least seven times before I finally finish it. You can say I'm stubborn. I'd have to say, at first, I did not like Jonathan Walker very much - close to not at all. Though, as I read further, I realize he was one of those boy trying to grow up. And he did eventually, even beyond my expectations. He became brave and calculative, even at his age. Vivian Smith, she became much more sensible and I began to like her as the story progress. I like how she develops from a whinning-filled young girl into a thinker. Sam, oh dear Sam, such a sweet child. I suppose, as the story doesn't evolve over a long span of time, he shall be excuse of maturity factor. Though, as for bravery, I ought to say, the character was well formed. I can't say I am not surprised by the ending of the book, it was rather -- unexpected, but interesting nonetheless. I think I shall try another book by Miss Jones, better yet, I'll go back to my The Power of Three...
