I just re-read this book before Christmas. Well, I listened to it, since I own both the paperback I picked up many years ago in a London bookshop and a marvelous audio book version narrated by Alex Jennings (who is simply a superlative reader). I had neither read nor listened to the book in about seven years, and you know what? I'd forgotten just how good it is. Lately, I've been exposed to less-than-magnificent writing. Not awful, just not wonderful. So, there I was, listening to The Dark is Rising while preparing tart shells for Christmas mincemeat, and chopping vegetables and breaking up ground pork for the tourtière, and I kept thinking: "Damn. This is good. I'd forgotten." They made a movie version last year and there are a few reasonably good reviews of the film --- but none of them come from people who have actually read this book. Or re-read it. I recommend you do one or the other soon. No need to wait for next Christmas. (Oh yes, and the rest of the series is good too. Except for Over Sea Under Stone, the first in the series. Of course, I haven't re-read that one...)
