I loved and adored this book because it reminded me so much of my own teen years burried in fantasy and sci fi novels, but at the same time transported me to a whole different universe that I loved discovering - just the way I loved discovering those fantasy and sci fi universes as a kid. An amazing trick. Since reading it (from the library), I have loved Farthing, (and pushed it on others who also loved it) and am looking forward to reading Jo Walton's whole catalog. I love her books so much that I plan to actually buy some of them - new! Because I want to keep them and spread some cash to such a smart, thoughtful, wonderful writer. But if I won a copy of Among Others, I wouldn't complain about getting it for free and would absolutely re-read it and lend it out to friends because I want to spread the awesomeness.

In conclusion, Jo Walton is amazing.

I am thrilled to hear of Jo's Nebula win! I read Among Others from the library (which--though it doesn't recompense the author--is quite appropriate in the case of this book, which lauds the salvific power of interlibrary loan), and reading that is what led me to discover Jo's blogging on this website. This has in turn led me to several other great books already (and I'm only about a third of the way through her postings). One of the things I loved about Among Others was the little book reviews scattered throughout, and I am most grateful to Jo and the Tor website for providing me with a whole passel of more extensive reviews! It's so helpful to me to read reviews by someone who is so intelligent, insightful, and feminist as well. Someone who knows how great Cherryh is at creating aliens, and why LeGuin's latter-day Earthsea books don't work, and why every feminist heterosexual woman would want her lover to read certain Dorothy L. Sayers mysteries. Thanks, Jo, and congratulations!
