The Chronicles of Chrestomanchi in an unforgettably well-written book that will thrill the 35th reading as it did the first. The characters are people that anyone could relate to, as well as well-developed and full-fleshed. The plot, if a little straightforward, is delightful, and the story is a well-woven web that will enthrall the reader until the very last page.

I am completely in love with this book, and the rest of the books in The Chronicles of Chrestomanci as well. The idea of all the different worlds and how they came to be is so creative. I've read this book about a million times and it hasn't gotten old. My favorite stories (not just in this book, but in the other ones too) are Charmed Life, The Lives of Christopher Chant, and Conrad's Fate. The only problem is, I love all of the stories so much that I feel like they're all too short, and I want to hear more!

I really loved these 2 books. They are my 2 favorite of the Chrestomanci books. The first one is about Cat and his sister Gwendolen and how they eventually adjust to life at Chrestomanci castle, despite Gwendolen's bad behavior. The second one is about Christopher and how he struggles and eventually comes to accept his fate at the Chrestomanci castle.

This was a great book about different worlds and magic! I personally liked it better then Harry Potter. Its kinda like a 2 for 1 deal, you get 2 different books in 1 book. The second book in The Chronicles of Chrestomanci (The Lives of Christopher Chant) is not a sequel to the first book (Charmed Life) which was at first a dissapointment to me but after I read it I found that I liked T.L.O.C.C. better. This is definetly a must-read for anyone who likes Harry Potter books!! I could read this book over and over again and not get tired of it!

I bought this through the Science Fiction Book Club as a four book collection. It had Magicians, Charmed Lives, Christopher Chant, and Witch Week. I'm always picking it up and reading it again and again, and now that I know Cat and Tonino are back in Mixed Magics, I'll have to get that one too.

I had my doubts when I bought it on a whim, but this charming book has become one of my very favorites. It is one of those rare books that you can't put down for anything, I highly recomend it!
