A Tale of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones
I read this book for We Be Reading's DWJ March, a month to celebrate the author Diana Wynne Jones. As I read more by DWJ, I see why Kristen devotes an entire month to this amazing woman. In A Tale of Time City, she brings readers to a complicated time in history to an even more complicated time outside of history to worlds in future times. It's a roller coaster ride of time traveling action and I haven't even had the chance to mention the actual action in between the traveling of time! I thoroughly enjoyed the ride, but with all the complications, I think a re-read would serve well to really understand all of DWJ's brilliant world-building to its full effect! I liked it the first time around. I think with a second read, it would only get better.
Have you traveled to Time City and beyond? What did you think?
