This is another Diana Wynne Jones book that I first read in either my childhood or teenage years. I bought my original paper copy second hand, but the cover on the right still gives a good indication of when that was.
Over on Kristen’s post, the comments are talking about the lack of good covers for this book, and while I don’t claim this is a good cover, it’s certainly different from many of the others, so I thought I would share.
This is one of those books where Jones turns everything on its head very quickly as we go from getting to know Gair, Anya and Ceri to meeting the very dangerous giants – who might just be something quite different from what we expect.
While I’d already read Jones before I read Power of Three, it was the first time she really showed me how she could shift the reader’s perception by the way she told her story. Once again, she blew me away and I remain a life-long fan.
