Recommended to me by a friend and I must admit was rather hesitant as a book about moles did not rate highly on my reading list. Read the entire series in sequence (the 3 Chronicles and the 3 Silence) and I thoroughly enjoyed every book. Tended to think of the moles as being human rather than mole as you follow their lives of love, war and peace through the ages. Quite brutal in parts. William Horwood is an excellent writer and I would commend these books to anyone over the age of 18!

This is a worthy successor to Duncton Wood. Although it is certainly a deeper novel, focusing more on the religious aspects of the mole community. This is the first Duncton book to introduce the 'Word' vs 'Stone' theme, and is probably my favourite book of the six Duncton books published, mainly because whilst Horwood does dwell at length on the contrasts between the two mole religions, the story is still given equal importance, something I think is not apparent in the later books in the series. If you liked Duncton Wood, you should like this.

I admit that I have never read Duncton Wood or Duncton Found. I picked a hardback copy of this book up in a Christmas fete for 50p, thinking it looked okay. As it turned out it was more than okay. It was absolutely incredible.
How Mr. Horwood managed to write this book I don't know. It is massive and often looks like it is about to reach a dead, but never does. It's like it's already happened, the way he never comes to an uneasy halt despite a complex plot.
You really will come to love characters, good or evil, and find the death scenes very moving. I really must get hold of Duncton Found and find out what happens with the coming of the Stone Mole...
Superb Reading!

I have all 6 of the Duncton Books, and have read them literally hundreds of times, but this is definitely my favourite. Chartering the life of Bracken and Rebecca's son Tryfan, this book moves you to tears, and stirs up such emotion that you forget that these are moles, and not people. I recommend these books to anyone who is interested in adventure, emotion and a fantastic story. When will the film be made??

The second in the Duncton Chronicles. A very well written story of the troubles and strifes of moledom laying in wait for the Stone Moles coming. An excellent fantasy book, dealing with issues of religion, conflicting beliefs, love and community. For those of you who haven't read Duncton Wood, the story is very easy to pick up and follow as i myself began the chronicles with this book. It is truely captivating and a great read. I would recommend this book even to those of you who don't quite get on with the idea of animals talking etc.

Hello to all new fans of Duncton these books give you some inside view of moles and how they would perceive the world if you put human views on to them everybody needs something to believe in so why not them, and like all good fiction the story makes you cheer the hero's and comiserate when needed. The first time you read it the fantasy comes alive but if when older you reread them then you read and perceive with different eye's and views and although you know the ending you still cheer them on so go ahead enjoy yourselves read them.

Who would have thought that reading a story involving moles could be so good.
