Polly Whittacker has two sets of memories. In the first, things are boringly normal; in the second, her life is entangled with the mysterious, complicated cellist Thomas Lynn. One day, the second set of memories overpowers the first, and Polly knows something is very wrong. Someone has been trying to make her forget Tom - whose life, she realizes, is at supernatural risk. Fire and Hemlock is a fantasy filled with sorcery and intrigue, magic and mystery - and a most unusual and satisfying love story. Widely considered to be one of Diana Wynne Jones's best novels, the Firebird edition of Fire and Hemlock features an introduction by the acclaimed Garth Nix - and an essay about the writing of the book by Jones herself.

Since then, I'd estimate that I've read it anywhere between five and seven times. Each time, it has enthralled me, and, on my third reading (probably around ten), I promptly de...

2.0 Fire and Hemlock
As much as I love Ms. Jones, I could not get into this book. It promised me a protagonist with two sets of memories. Instead I got a teenager sitting down one day and recounting her childhood as if it was full of details that she'd merely not thought of in a while, not a completely new set. There...

In an effort to read more of DWJ's works and based on the glowing reviews of this story, I gave it another shot after quickly discarding it a few year's back. Sadly, still just not my sort. The characters and I did not get along. I found Polly very off-putting and the "romance" did not have much emo...
