deborah: The management regrets that it was unable to find a Gnomic Utterance that was suitably irrelevant. (gnomic)
I reviewed a fair number of Diana Wynne Jones books for Kirkus Reviews, although I was far from the only Kirkus reviewer to review her work. Even a beloved author falls flat sometimes; not all of my reviews of her books were overwhelmingly positive.

On the other hand, when one of her books was spot on, it has always been such a pleasure to be able to tell our readers how much the book lives up to expectations. My review of House of Many Ways, for example, reflects how I loved the heroine and her journey.

I'm honored to have been given the opportunity to write a tribute to Diana Wynne Jones on the Kirkus blog.

(Two disclaimers: I know the review refers to her as "Wynne Jones" rather than "Jones"; it's a legacy error in the database. And oof, that tribute points to the website, which I haven't updated in years, focusing on the mailing list instead. I suppose now would be a time to get cracking.)
