The Dark is Rising
Susan Cooper
Paperback

Simon, Jane, and Barney, enlisted by their mysterious great-uncle, arrive in a small coastal town to recover a priceless golden grail stolen by the forces of evil -- Dark. They are not at first aware of the strange powers of another boy brought to help, Will Stanton -- nor of the sinister significance of the Greenwitch, an image of leaves and branches that for centuries has been cast into the sea for good luck in fishing and harvest. Their search for the grail sets into motion a series of distubing, sometimes dangerous events that, at their climax, bring forth a gift that, for a time at least, will keep the Dark from rising.

  • I’ve read the first two books when I was in middle school. I liked them back then.
  • This one disappointed me little, but probably because now I’m older, and to the older me the story is too simple.
  • Also the writing style is too young for me.
  • I’ve read this book in Dutch, and not in English, because I had the Dutch version laying around the house.
  • The cover of the English version is much nicer than the Dutch version, though.
  • Honestly, I’ve mixed feeling about this book.
  • Buy, borrow or burn? Borrow for you child, nephew, niece, little brother or little sister.
