5.0 out of 5 stars A masterful book, one to be cherished., 10 Jan. 2001
This review is from: The Dark is Rising (Puffin Books) (Paperback)
I first read this book when I was 9 years old. Unfortunatley the school prevented my teacher finishing the book as he the governers had recieved complaints from parents that it was full of pagan tradition and heathen beliefs. PAH! we say loudly, the book does not go against any religion and certainly not against the Christian values the plaintiffs were so eager to protect. the book acknowledges the church as a place of the light, a place safe fromt he dark forces of the world. What more do you want? Luckily my teacher lived ont he same road as me and leant me a copy my unevolved headmaster had not burned. Anyway, the book grips you from the start and transports you from the grey world of english winter nt he stark white snowy world of fantasy. Susan cooper not only uses her characters imaginativley but creates atmosphere that is both compelling and traumatically beutiful. My advice - Read when your young, read when your old and always own a copy to transform those winter nights curled up by the fire. YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!

I read the entire sequence when I was a child and still have Over Sea and Under Stone on my shelf. It certainly never affected my Christian faith and I'm now scouring book stores to find original copies to complete the set.
