Listener Opinions

    " A bit of a let down after Lives of Christopher Chant. It took about 70 pages to get into it. Once I really got into it I realized there were only about 10 pages left and sure enough, everything got nicely tied up in those 10 pages. It was like she got tired of writing so she wrapped it up as quickly as she could. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Mabey | 2/16/2014

    " Not as good as the other Chrestomanci books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olesya | 2/7/2014

    " Once again, a very enjoyable read. Diana Wynne Jones is truly a master of light fantasy :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bailey | 2/4/2014

    " Definitely not as good as Volume 1. Still worth reading, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pylades | 1/20/2014

    " Witch Week is the stronger story, but both are fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 1/16/2014

    " These two make an odd pair. Witch Week is a boarding school farce with silliness all over the place. The Magicians of Caprona has lighthearted moments, but is a pretty earnest tale of children during war time. They don't have much in common, except the focus on children and magic, but they are both perfect. Caprona gets extra bonus points for the importance of cats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 McKayla | 1/5/2014

    " Same as the other one, the first in this series. It feels like the author doesn't know how to finish a story, and just writes two novellas and sticks them in one book. Anyone else get that feeling? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sheralyn | 1/5/2014

    " Could not get into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 12/17/2013

    " Was pleasantly surprised to find these books different to volume 1. These stories were both very well written and had an amazing cast of characters. A pleasure to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 12/7/2013

    " I love the Chrstomanci series. So when I say I hated Volume 2, that's saying something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 11/29/2013

    " Cats, inquisitors, and Chrestomanci oh my! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NeverDust | 11/12/2013

    " Can't wait to get the next book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 10/24/2013

    " I love Diana Wynne Jones. I adore this Chrestomanci series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steven | 8/30/2013

    " I liked The Magicians of Caprona, but I didn't finish Witch Week, because it was a bit tedious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justine | 8/11/2013

    " The first Story in this volume Is good. I enjoy stories based on big close-knit families. I really quite liked the second story. Anyone who is a fan of Dianna's other stories will enjoy these as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clarissa | 6/17/2013

    " I've owned this book for years and have read it several times. It is always as good as it was the first time. I think I will soon need to replace my copy because I have read it so much that the binding is starting to die. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbi | 5/31/2013

    " I liked it but not as much as the first volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Challis | 4/9/2013

    " fun books, in the likeness of harry potter "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 3/20/2013

    " An addicting series you just cannot put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwen | 12/22/2012

    " I liked the Magicians of Caprona better than Witch Week but both were interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ashley | 9/3/2012

    " I'm not really getting into it right now. I think I am more of a murder mystery book person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moonchyme | 5/31/2012

    " Also very nice, as was the first. She's built such a romantic little town~ the pages flew by! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilex | 2/18/2012

    " I first read Chrestomanci when I was in middle school. Re-reading it is like visiting an old friend. Diana Wynne Jones was a master of language, but her true gift lay with making her young characters feel real. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elevetha Houre | 1/24/2012

    " "Magicians of Caprona was very odd and slightly creepy. Will not be re-reading that one. "Witch Week" was much better but I very much like "Volume 1" far better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Azz Lunatic | 9/13/2011

    " "The Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Volume 2: The Magicians of Caprona / Witch Week by Diana Wynne Jones (2001)" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lia | 7/6/2011

    " I loved Witch Week, but I have a hard time making it through Magicians of Caprona. My husband is the opposite. So, I think it's just a taste issue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 6/3/2011

    " Love, love, love the Chronicles of Chrestomanci. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/6/2011

    " First Diana Wynne Jones book I've read, and so amazing. Characters are interesting and the dialogue is great. What I most love though is the way the author writes, and why didn't I know about these books before?I cant wait to make my way through many more of her books!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celia | 5/1/2011

    " One of my favourite DWJ books - although it's so hard to pick favourites. But I was always very fond of this as a child - I loved how singing was tied up with magic, and the whole Romeo and Juliet thing she's got going on in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " #3 happier than Romeo & Juliet "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 3/6/2011

    " Lovely bit of fiction. Perfect for a tween, or a bit younger looking for a fun romp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 11/8/2010

    " Wow, I just realized I went a whole year without reading any Diana Wynne Jones! Time to catch up. ;)
    I'm wavering somewhere between a 3 and 4 on this one. It's a quick, charming read, typical DWJ.
    I'm really enjoying the Chrestomanci series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra | 7/8/2010

    " Good fantasy, but didn't quite live up to my expectations. It probably took halfway through the book, before I was really interested in the story. Nothing like CHARMED LIFE, which is my favorite by Diana Wynne Jones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 6/18/2010

    " Another good book in the series. I liked the feuding witch families, and though Chrestomanci was once again missing in action for a large part of the book, I still enjoyed the characters remaining well enough to get along without him.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 5/22/2010

    " A slow start, but the last half of the book was very interesting. "
