Book Review: The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper

The Dark Is RisingThe Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A classic that can be read again and again

I first read this book when I was doing by gcse English and that is when I fell in love with it. Susan Cooper has a wonderful sophisticated way with words that weaves image and feeling together while still being able to appeal to both the adult and child in me. There is wonder in these pages, and magic and mystery all set in the backdrop of English countryside. As Will learns the truth of himself and the rising Dark, Cooper compells us to read on and discover with him. Don't be put off by him being an 11 year old boy, he needs no ageing up (like the terrible movie) to make him relatable, Cooper's storytelling does that.

A great read for children and adults alike.
