4.8 out of 5 stars

on 2 March 2018
I loved this one - perhaps more than books 1 and 2; as a very senior citizen I was out of the target pop. for this series when it first came out, and completely missed it, but am enjoying it greatly now! I found it well-written and would recommend it for young and older readers alike. Written before the 'benefits' of instant information and social media it was particularly enjoyable to see the plot develop, borrowing as it does from Arthurial and Celtic legends.

To my mind The Dark is Rising series is one of the best things ever written: I discovered them over 30 years ago and have been re-reading them every couple of years since.

The characters are entirely believable and the plots move along at a spanking pace. I am always enthralled by Cooper's range and imagination. It is a wonderful set of books for literate young teens and adults alike and I heartily recommend it for all lovers of mythic fiction.

This book is most enjoyable if you have read the two previous ones but I don't feel thus is essential. I love how the story weaves in old English folklore and ritual. Worth a read for adults as well as younger readers

Greenwitch was a super book, it had a great idea. I would recommend that you read the first two books first. I read The dark is rising, over sea under stone and then this. There was a bit at the end, however, that I didn't quite follow as well, hence the four stars.
Apart from that it is a great read so enjoy!!!😁

I read this years ago as part of the Dark Is Rising series. Enjoyed it then, and again now. Although most characters are children, the plot is sufficiently well constructed that it can also be enjoyable for adults to read

This is a book you can read time and time again, no matter what age you are. It is timeless.
