Just like most of Diana Wynne Jones' books this was fantastic. I loved it. Sadly, that means I only have two of her books left to read for the first time... Still, now I know what all the people who have raved about the Chrestomanci series in the past, were talking about. I agree 100 %! I won't go into the plot and spoil it for others who haven't yet read these books, but all I can say is that anyone who likes most of (or all) DWJ:s books, will certainly like these as well. In my opinion, DWJ is probably the author who writes best about magic. She makes it seem so natural and realistic. As if almost anyone could find that she/he has a talent for magic. I love that too. :)… (mer)

With a couple of exceptions, I quite liked this book. It isn't one of my favorite DWJ books, but it's definitely good enough. Except for a few things that I won't go into, because of potential spoilers. I'll just say that in one case, I believe that many people agree with me, as for the other, it's just a personal opinion of mine. One of the things I did like, is the fact that in books like these - fantasy for kids - the main characters almost always have people on their side, people who stand by them in times of trouble. In real life, that sort of thing is far too rare. In retrospect, the enchanted glass from the title doesn't get enough attention. Sure, it's important, that's clear, but I would have liked to have known more about it and everything behind it. In fact, when I'd finished reading this book, I felt that apart from those two things I can't stand, there was too little of pretty much everything.… (mer)

Better than Dark Lord of Derkholm, but still not that good. I can't believe this book is by DWJ. Elda is quite likeable, that's about all I can say.

This took a little getting used to. It wasn't quite what I'd expected, though well written as everything by DWJ. I can't say it's among my favorites, but parts of it were interesting.
