I loved the series when I was a kid, and I think _The Dark is Rising_ is the
best book. I could never understand why the last book won the Carnegie
Medal, when _The Dark is Rising_ is by far the best in the series!
But I tried to go back and read the whole series a few years ago, and didn't
get further than _Greenwitch_. I still liked _The Dark is Rising_ best, but
couldn't get into the rest anymore.
Perhaps I try again in a few more years.
