5.0 out of 5 stars Tried Harry? Now try Will., 12 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Dark is Rising Sequence: Over Sea, Under Stone, The Dark Is Rising, Greenwitch, The Grey King, and Silver on the Tree (Puffin Books) (Paperback)
As a bookseller I often get asked to recommend books for fractious god-children (etc) awaiting Harry Potter #21.. all I can say is, I started reading these when I was 11 and they still stand up to re-reading 20-something years later. Never glib, always gripping, Susan Cooper writes in the style of C S Lewis's "That Hideous Strength" and T H White's "The Once and Future King".. an Arthurian mythos children don't feel patronised by and adults will find equally compelling. I hate the word "mythos" but you get the drift. My only hope is that this wonderful series will remain undiscovered by Hollywood. Read it first before John Travolta decides he wants to play Merlin...
