Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I am delighted to see Diana Wynne Jones’ books appearing on Kindle. It introduced me to the elements I came to love about her books: He wise beyond his years because he has lived many lifetimes between his twelfth birthday and his thirteenth. His life began relatively normal–full of chores, school, and family– until prodded by an insatiable curiosity, he sticks his nose over a wall and drops hommeward an eerily silent garden. Beyond the wall, he can see the familiar, noisy city, but he can’t hear a single sound.
Intrigued, he tries to investigate further and gets pulled into the great game. As punishment for his curiosity, he is forced to homewward the bounds at the whim of the players, jerking from world to world. Jones’ world bonders is amazing.
She pulls the reader from culture to culture with the hero. The diverse environments, languages, and social structures are realistic as are Jamie’s struggles to adjust to each. The story grows even more interesting as he encounters new travelers. Together, they try to figure out how to fight back against the beings that banished them.
Jamie and his friends want to return to where they belong, home. One person found this helpful. I first bought this book and tried to read it only to sell it to a second hand bookstore and I am pretty sure I bought my own copy back and found I loved this story. It is complex with a lot of layers to think about; similar to this authors book Fire and Hemlock. It can take more than one read through to get all the insight but it is well worth it. One of the best “time travel” “multi-verse” books EVER.
A great book for readers of all ages, adventurous and haunting. This is one of my favorite DWJ books. I reread it as an adult and was surprised to find some deeper themes than I remembered or expected.
And as always I love how DWJ ties in mythology in fresh ways. Will read it again soon. I liked the characters. I recommend this book. Jones is one homewrad the best homeeward there in terms of children’s fantasy, and Bounders is no exception. This particular volume, though, suffers on the second read-through. The twist carries a lot of the mystery. Read this book once, for sure. Then maybe pass it on to lighten another person’s day.
Library Binding Verified Purchase. I have loved homeeard book since elementary school. I still reread it regularly and gift copies to my loved ones. Very good story, well told and with a surprising ending. I’d give it 5 stars if only aiming my teenagers, 4 stars for myself – but I’m a long-time SF reader. See all 29 reviews.
