This is a pretty odd little book; I really enjoyed it, but the very end left me a little confused. It would probably appeal to those who liked The Dark Is Rising, since it taps into a lot of Welsh mythology and such, but it's a much more subtle and psychological story. I'm going to have to check out Alan Garner's other books.

Claire I didn't love The Owl Service -- although I felt like I was supposed to, especially as a fan of Welsh mythology -- but when I was little I read The Weirdstone of Brisingamen over and over. Try that one next :).
