Beautifully written children's story that encompasses magic and heroics, good vs bad, and the process of growing up and learning how to make hard choices. Will become an instant classic for the family- parents and kids both.
Dark is Rising
Really doesnt relate to me. Really boring and to many adjectives.
Most boring book I have ever read... never had something that bores me more then this did. Total waste of time, wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.
