I so love these books, with their wonderful characters who somehow manage, despite the heavily prescribed behavior of Regency aristocrats, to be delightfully individual, smart, quirky, and wholly relateable. The language is precise, eloquent, and tru ...more

I was happily surprised by the conclusion to this trilogy. I liked the first book, but thought the second book was all over the place and didn't enjoy it nearly as much. But the third one wraps everything up nicely, and is in every respect a satisfyi ...more

Again, as with the first book...I liked it, it held my interest (I made it through 452 pages), and...I think it could have been better. I liked the characters, and their alternating points of view are probably what saved it for me, but the logic of h ...more

“There isn't an end point to excellence where you have it and you can stop. Being your best self means keeping on trying.”
Jo Walton, The Just City

Jo Walton
“I hate it when people imply that people only read because they have nothing better to do.”
Jo Walton, Among Others

Jo Walton
“The trouble with mimetic fiction isn’t that you can tell what’s going to happen (I defy anyone to guess what’s going to happen in Middlemarch, even from halfway through) but that you can tell what’s not going to happen. There isn’t going to be an evil wizard. The world isn’t going to be destroyed in Cultural Fugue and leave the protagonist as the only survivor. There aren’t going to be any people who happen to have one mind shared between five bodies. There are unlikely to be shape-changers. In science fiction you can have any kind of story—a romance or a mystery or a reflection of human nature, or anything at all. But as well as that, you have infinite possibility. You can tell different stories about human nature when you can compare it to android nature, or alien nature. You can examine it in different ways when you can write about people living for two hundred years, or being relativistically separated, or under a curse. You have more colours for your palette, more lights to illuminate your scene.”
Jo Walton, What Makes This Book So Great

Jo Walton
“Things need to be worth doing for themselves, not just for practice for some future time.”
Jo Walton, Among Others

Jo Walton
“My ideal relationship with a book is that I will read it for the first time entirely unspoiled. I won’t know anything whatsoever about it, it will be wonderful, it will be exciting and layered and complex and I will be excited by it, and I will re-read it every year or so for the rest of my life, discovering more about it every time, and every time remembering the circumstances in which I first read it.”
