4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia.....sigh! 27 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a child, I was absolutely obsessed with this show. Running for a mere seven episodes, it had a profound effect one me and led me to a lifelong passion for the Avebury Circle and it's environs. I can remember exactly where I bought the book (The Forum in Lincoln on a visit to my Aunt and Uncle who lived in North Hykeham) and recall carrying the book with me for months and brandishing it at people the way a fundamentalism christian brandishes a bible.

35 years later, my love for Avebury remains, the original novel, kept, dog earred and looking a lot worse for wear, went missing some 5 years ago during a house move and my fondness for the story remains. Yes, there are a few plot holes that I didn't spot as a child and the writing style is a little lack-lustre, but it is still a great, atmospheric and bizarre story, and well worth re-reading.

Still, without a doubt, the scariest and weirdest TV show ever given a Kids TV and coming from a run of shows from HTV that included the frankly barking Sky and Raven, that's saying something!

In the days before home video, this book was my VCR and it's return is much welcomed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Milbury Madness 28 Jun. 2013
By joel
Format:Kindle Edition
Watched this as a child;bought the dvd two years ago and now read Children Of The Stones on my Kindle while on holiday in Spain.
I was surprised to find that this is well researched,and more like an adult's novel tha a child's.
Really enjoyable and creepy,with nods to The Wicker Man,etc.
Hendrick and his brainwashed zombie villagers have never been more vivid in my mind as he tries to gain the upper hand and ultimate control.
Father and son Adam and Matthew are the ones entering into the maelstrom as they drive unwittingly into Milbury for three months of work-related research.
If you remember this series,or are interested in the Sci-fi/Psychological Horror aspect of Children Of The Stones,treat yourself! Happy day! (You'll find this chilling greeting all through the tale)

4.0 out of 5 stars Novelisation of the classic 70s serial 8 Oct. 2014
By Alaran
Format:Hardcover
This is a novelisation of the classic seventies television serial. It was originally released around the same time as the programme was shown but has subsequently been re-released due to the recent publication of a sequel almost four decades later.

Novelised by the original writers of the program, it is entirely what you might expect. It closely follows what was seen on screen with little variation or embellishment. The dialogue is practically the script verbatim and the characters are spot on.

What the novelisation obviously misses though is the wonderful imagery provided by real life Avebury and that haunting music that carried a lot of responsibility for making this one of the scariest children’s television programmes ever.

At the core of the book though is the story and this is as mysterious and intriguing as ever. It’s a fascinating mix of science and the paranormal where the definition between the two is heavily blended.

This should entertain any fans of the programme or those that remember it from the seventies. But if you haven’t seen the programme you really should watch that first before trying this novelisation.
