Published by Spectra on August 29, 2006
First Published by Gollancz in 2004
Fantasy Literature Review Rating: 70
[Audio Version] I'm sure a re-read would be enlightening, but I didn't like the story well enough to do that. I did, however, really like Grimwood's style and look forward to reading more of his work.

The Warlock in Spite of Himself Image
The Warlock in Spite of Himself (Fantasy) 50(1)
Published by Ace Trade on September 01, 1998
First Published by Ace in 1969
Fantasy Literature Review Rating: 50
[Audio Version] There was nothing remarkable about the prose and I thought the humor was often juvenile and most likely to be enjoyed by teens (though The Warlock in Spite of Himself, because of the sexual content, is not marketed to teens).

Published by Candlewick on November 14, 2006
First Published by Candlewick in 2006
Fantasy Literature Review Rating: 25
[Audio Version] Some of the story is cute, but it's never very clever, and nearly every part of the plot has a parallel to HARRY POTTER, even down to the soul-sucking Dementors

In the end, the plot didn't hold together, but I still enjoyed the setting and many of the ideas in The World Inside, so I didn't feel like it was a waste of my time.
