I have read this series of books a myriad of times after being introduced during primary school. I can still remember the sense of awe and wonderment in several of the scenes across the entire quintet of novels.
Even many many years later I can pick this up and blast my way through them in a matter of days. True, to my now experienced eyes they can read as slightly dated (especially OSOS), that said the story and experience is as strong and emotional as ever.
There are several themes visited across the series of which I am not going to ruin for the uninitiated. My personal favourites lie in the menance and build up of "The Dark is Rising" and the raw emotional anquish of feeling in "The Grey King".
So give it a shot and as I said at the start - remove all visage of the film before reading - or just don't bother with it in the first place ;-)
