dealskindle: the dark is rising by susan cooper for $0…


I remember enjoying this series when I was little.

...Isn't this the second book in the series, though? Over Sea, Under Stone is the first one.


You are correct sir, this is the second book but it is the one that many people including myself started with, often doubling back to book one before carrying on. I loved this series better than Narnia, less derivative than Harry Potter. Later books involve Arthurian legends if that intrigues anyone. The makers of the crappy movie agreed, they just made The Seeker movie from this book, but really its much better than the movie. Oh well, not everything Ian McShane makes can be as good as Deadwood...


When the Dark comes rising six shall turn it back;
Three from the circle, three from the track...


I first read this book 36 years ago as a 6th grader. You can't go wrong with any Newberry winner.


Since I am going to the library today anyway, I'll have to see if they have this. I am always looking for good books to read and I just finished my previous book waiting at the dealership this morning.
