George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a Scottish novelist, poet, and Christian minister whose fairy tales and fantasies inspired such later luminaries as J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, G. K. Chesterton, and Neil Gaiman.  His best-remembered works include At the Back of the North Wind (1871), The Princess and the Goblin (1872), and Lilith (1895).

I listened to a radio drama of this book before I read it and I didn't think I'd like the actual book. But I fell in love with it. MacDonald is so discriptive and the characters are amazing. I found myself longing for North Wind to visit me...

I remember getting this book as a gift when I was a child and I loved it. I could not put it down, even at 10. Many years later, I discovered the book was still at home on the bookshelf and I had so many fond memories of it that I had to read it again. Still just as magnificent. The descriptions just take you right there and you live it. Amazing... even after all these years.

This is a wonderful book, I had to read it for one of college courses and my Professor taught us about how MacDonald's works had heavily influenced C.S. Lewis' life and writings. I was curious to see for myself what was so great and unique about this author. When i was done reading the book, i had laughed, cried, smiled and learned so much from it. I absolutely loved this book. It presents questions and answers to some of life's important questions. MacDonald's writing style is entertaining, easy to read and inspirational. I recommend this book to all fantasy lovers.
