Favorite Chrestomanci Book
Of all the Chrestomanci books this one has to be my all time favorite. It was fun to see a young Christopher and Millie again. While I enjoy the books that show Chrisopher as a grown-up (Charmed Life, Magicians of Caprona, Witch Week, and Pinhoe Egg), the books from his younger days are far more entertaining. Christopher just seems too perfect as an adult. It's nice to know that the hero has faults. I love the part when Millie and Conrad discuss Christopher's most annoying personality traits.
An exceptional read (listen) read by Gerard Doyle
This delightful story of Conrad's fate transports the listener to the amazing world of Series 7. The narrator is perfect for this enchanting tale. Diana Wynne Jones weaves a spell binding story and Gerard Doyle makes this work a true joy! Twists and turns abound - this is a must listen.
I love this book. It is a great peak into Christophers younger days. Its worth every penny.
