Oh, Od Magic
. You are so fluffy and earnest and full of wizards and magic and princesses and labyrinths. These things are familiar and pretty and can be interesting, I guess, if you're in the mood for them. I was not.
Maybe if I were sixteen I would have loved this, but it was a little too heavy-handed and predictable, and I got tired of McKillip's characters being so . . . I've got to go with "earnest" again. Maybe it IS a YA novel. That would make sense.
Whatever it is, it's pleasant enough. That is just what it is: a pleasant book, a nice book. I probably just picked it up fifteen years too late.
