    nessreader: Ashton has Jones' dry wit and skill at characterisation. Both are humourous dark-ages-type quests.

DWJ is so, so, so good at emotional development and family dynamics. The only sour note was a minor but persistent thread of fatphobia. Brenda even gets development and a heroic arc of her own, but for some reason (I guess: being published almost 50 years ago) we can't have that without the narrative constantly making vicious little jabs about her every time I thought it had finally been dropped.

A little harder to get into than most Diana Wynne Jones books, but once you figure out all the names and happenings you're hooked.

This book did have a fair amount of one of the few problems I have with the author, she has issues writing fat characters. There are a fair number of sympathetic and likable fat characters in Diana's stories, but the way they are pysically described is quite critical and off putting to read sometimes. ( )

Entertaining and clever enough. Some irritating fat-hatred mars the second half of the book. ( )

DWJ Book Toast, #14

Diana Wynne Jones is one of my favorite fantasy authors, growing up and now, and I was saddened by the news of her death. I can't say I'm overcome with emotion - as personal as some of her work is to me, its not like I knew her after all - but I wish I could put into words how I feel about her no longer being out there, writing new adventures and laughing at all of us serious fans thinking so hard about her words when we should simply get on with the business of enjoying them.

And that's...what I'm going to do. She's left behind a huge body of work, a large amount of which I haven't read yet, so I'm going to reread all my old favorites (and hopefully some new).

An early Jones book, and a disappointingly bland one, too. I don't know how much of that must come from the fact that Jones changed and rewrote most of the rules for young fantasy stories, everything that would have made this book interesting has been appropriated and reused by other authors, and Jones herself.

First we have Gair who insists and whines over and over and over again about how Ordinary he is, and how he doesn't have special powers. He's only smart, and kind, and good at hunting, and the heir to the chiefdom of his people. His sister and brother have, respectively, the ability to know the future, and where things are, but only when asked. Most of this book would have been solved in three pages if someone had, I don't know, asked them one or two obvious questions.

Then we have the Giants and the Dorrig, a race of shape-changers, who have their own adult and youth representatives. There's a long-standing curse, and self-discoveries, and "Boy we're not so different after all" moments, but there was little of that sense of fun or insight that Jones usually bring into play.

'The Power of Three' takes a long time to build up and a lot of the elements we spend so much time on don't matter in the end. It was mostly "world-building" for the sake of world-building. I've heard good things about books that came before this one, but it seems to me that this book is definitely from a Diana Wynne Jones that is still in her apprenticeship. This is for completists only. ( )

Not my favorite Diana Wynne Jones book - Its missing a feeling of joy and fun - its too dark, with not enough humor. The children in this story were actual kids - not grow ups in kids bodies. I don't know if this is an early story by the author, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was. ( )

This is the story of the children of Adara--of Ayna and Ceri who both had Gifts, and of Gair, who thought he was ordinary.
