    May 2, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: very richly woven myth and modern story
    Cons: a main character that’s somewhat dislikable; a bit confusing to jump in on

    Summary: Going back a loonng way (about five years), my first introduction to The Dark is Rising series was actually The Grey King, the fourth book and actually one that can stand on their own. But in a strange twist of fate, at that ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality of writing, character development, interesting new character
    Cons: Not the strongest plot of the sequence, but the writing carries it.

    Summary: This is the fourth book in the sequence of five books by Susan Cooper, entitled The Dark Is Rising. This sequence of books is aimed at readers aged nine through thirteen, but I found it sufficiently engaging to enjoy as an adult. If anything, I ... read more

    Pros: Exciting tale in the Dark is Rising series.
    Cons: Some slow parts.

    Summary: The Grey King is the 4th in The Dark is Rising series.  If you haven't read the first three books, stop reading this review and get back to the first book Over Sea, Under Stone!  Those of you not familiar with the series (and this could spoil ... read more

    May 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: mythical story weaved with history and legend; beautiful prose
    Cons: Susan Cooper stopped writing

    Summary: I was a bookworm as a child. Every other Saturday my mother would take us to the library to check out books (until I realized that magazines had to be returned in a week, so I would check out Writers Digests just so she would have to bring us back in a ... read more

  • A Walk in Wales

    Apr 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clear, vivid writing. Compelling story
    Cons: Welsh pronunciation guide gives you no excuse not to sound out Welsh names

  • The predecessor to Harry Potter

    Jan 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich, beautiful storytelling for all ages
    Cons: Not a one!!

    Summary: I first read this book at the age of 12, and let me assure you, it has stood the test of time. I have continued to enjoy it ever since, and have read it and the other books in the "Dark Is Rising" series probably once a year since then. The ... read more

  • Great book: The Grey King

    Nov 18, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It was very suspenseful.
    Cons: If you take too long to read it, the suspense can wear off, and it can become very boring.

    Summary: The Grey King was a very suspenseful and hard to put down. The author, Susan Cooper, had a style that built up the suspense of the book. She would tell you most of the information, and hold back the final, completing piece until much later in the book. ... read more
