Product description


Among Others is a wonder and a joy. - Jeff Vandermeer, New York Times

If you love SF and fantasy, if reading it formed your teen years, if you do remember the magic you used to do, if you remember the absolute joy of first discovering those books, then read this.

Funny, acute, and impassioned

A hymnal for the clever and odd - an inspiration and a lifeline to anyone who has ever felt in the world, but not of it. - Cory Doctorow

Most fantasies evade opportunities to make the impossible plausible, to give magic accountability in a realistic setting and moral and emotional weight in a modern novel. Jo Walton accepts the double challenge and meets it with courage and skill . . . Among Others is a funny, thoughtful, acute and absorbing story all the way through, but in the magic parts it is more than that. - Guardian

Possibly earning itself the Book of the Year title is Jo Walton's thought provoking Among Others, which stays with you for a long time after reading. It is the story of a young girl from a magical family who is sent to a mundane boarding school and, through her discovery of classic SF novels, has her mind and world expanded. - Independent on Sunday

A lovely story, unlike anything I've ever read before: funny, touching, and gently magical.

There are the books you want to give all your friends, and there are the books you wish you could go back and give your younger self. And then there's the rare book, like Jo Walton's Among Others, that's both. - --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Publisher

Jo Walton writes science fiction and fantasy novels and reads a lot and eats great food. It worries her slightly that this is so exactly what she always wanted to do when she grew up. She comes from Wales, but lives in Montreal. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
