The Dark Lord of Derkholm - Diana Wynne Jones It is very much so classic Jones and has some humor and insight in its twist on fantasy tours on other planets and an entire world being destroyed through the greed of one man and the insatiable desires of people for the fantastic. But it never really lives up to its potential and is overly long and runs out of steam hundreds of pages before the conclusion even becomes a remote possibility. Not for me one of her best.

As always, I love her ideas, I find them so wonderful, but I always feel like they a) go on too long and b) are underdeveloped (oddly given the length) and confusing. Alas.
