Diddi iT do I have to do I can t tell you that Why Can t tell you that either Whys the Lady so weak throughout the whole series and yet when the Dark ssues a challenge to the High Magic court of law I KID YOU NOT she appears as f nothing were wrong with her and helps officiate Why would there be a freaking courtroom scene right The Complete Idiots Guide to the Gnostic Gospels in the middle of the buildup to the end battle Asn both sides are racing to the battlefield and boom court scene Why do the Dark and the Light follow what the High Magic court says when Will himself earlier said No other power orders them Why was there a slight rewrite about what happened when the six Signs were joined What Will remembers here The Center of the World is different that what happenedn the 2nd book Why would the revealing of a mole be shocking here when the character was really ba In this last book everything comes together All the characters all the plots and threads all the separate pieces of mythology Again Reinventing the Soul it s a beautiful book and again as always theres some amazing characterisation The things that catch my eye especially Obama in this book are thenitial aweresentment of Bran from the Drews Gwion s loyalty to and grief for Gwddyno and John s grief when Blodwen betrays him There s a lot of complex emotion going on here beneath the actual plot and parts of The Service of the State it really really hurt There are also some parts that never fail to make me smile like Barney s enthusiasm and Bran and Will s ArthurMerlin dynamicThe actual end of the book and seuence boths at once exhilarating and hurtful Five shall return and one go alone says the prophecy but I can t help but think that The Family Lawyer is ambiguous Ist that Will Jane Simon Barney and Bran return to our world and Merriman goes alone Or Gender and Development ist that Jane Simon Barney Bran and Merriman return to where they belong while Will The Slow Train to Rishikesh is left alone I suspectt s the former but there s truth First Baking Activity Book in the latter too when youmagine how abandoned Will Ancient Promises isI do love Bran s choice despite whatt leads to because that s realistic An adopted child doesn t lose their feelings for their adoptive parent just because they meet their biological parent Bran still loves Owen and arguably another father figure JohnMerriman s last few speeches are amazing but particularly this and this Everyday Sports Injuries is how I ll end my reviews It s a very appropriate thing to be saying to a child I think after a bookn which two moral opposites clash over and over It leaves you to thinkFor Drake Baby Toddler Knits Made Easy is no longern his hammock children nor മീരയുടെ നോവെല്ലകൾ Meerayude novellakal is Arthur somewhere sleeping and you may not liedly expecting the second coming of anybody now because the world Yaraana is yours andt Kleptomania is up to youReread againn December 2009 I can t think of any better end to this review Cooper s prose as always Cut-outs, Caste and Cine Stars is gorgeous and her flair formagery On a Prayer is enviable but this final volumen the Dark Rajaji, a Life is Rising seuence disappoints as a novel The first four volumes were nothing but buildup and thiss nothing but buildup too until five pages from the end Like books two three and four there are random time travelling scenes but here they muddle the plot The Book of Ganesha instead of movingt alongNone of the characters have particularly vivid personalities but the Drew siblings especially Jane always felt real then Will or Bran both of whom suffer from severe Designated Protagonist Syndrome Will has no personality and Bran just wanders over the mountains sulking except when the plot forces him to act noble basically a pubescent Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of goldPlayed to wake the Sleepers oldest of the old Power from the green witch lost beneath the sea All shall find the Light at last silver on the tree This was my Harry Potter you kids It India Through the Lens is still magicSeptember 2013 rereadI still remember the dayn fifth grade many many years ago when the school librarian told me that the book I d been waiting for was How Much Should a Person Consume? in Silver on the Tree the fifth and final volumen Susan Cooper s Dark Walking The Indian Streets is Rising seuenceIt was this coverI had torn through the first four books I think I read the first one Over Sea Under Stone out of order the first time which was okay becauset s kind of a preuel to the rest of the series With the second one The Dark s Rising I was hooked For some reason I had to wait for the fifth book though When the librarian handed t to me I was thrilled but also sad I remember that distinctly I was sad because I was about to read the last book and then t would be overI remember loving this concluding volume but also feeling such sadness when I was finished because the series was overI haven t felt anything like that since until a few years ago when I read the entire Harry Potter series n a month While the feelings were not as strong because I m older and jaded and while I can certainly recognize Rowling s flaws as a writer the fact that Harry and his friends n their silly boy wizard fantasy world managed to conjure some of the same emotions once felt as a ten year old s the reason why I credit Rowling with having something truly timeless felt as a ten year old No More Questions is the reason why I credit Rowling with having created something truly timeless special evenf I can point to a dozen fantasy series that are objectively better written I don t know what that special sauce Portrait of India isn a children s book series that makes Love on The Rocks it transcend plot and prose and curl literary fingers around your heart but Rowling hadt and Susan Cooper had tNow I am not much of a rereader I almost never reread books I understand a lot of people reread their favorite Books Often There Are often There are who boast of reading the entire Harry Potter series a dozen times I read them each once That s t It s a habit I just don t get even Helen if I realize I am the unusual one To my way of thinking there are thousands of books I d like to read and will never get to before I die so why waste one of the finite reading slots allotted to men my lifetime to a book I ve already readStill now and then I do reread something usually something I read so long ago I ve forgotten A Never-Before World it Mayben twenty or thirty years I will reread Harry PotterOver the past year I cautiously and with some trepidation approached my favorite childhood series once again Susan Cooper s The Dark Is Rising I was afraid the series I loved so much as a child would be a pale childish shadow when read as an adult who s read thousands of books since I ve read the Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord of the Rings well I lie I have never read the LotR all the way through I need to do that one of these days and lots of other fantasy MG and YA and adult and grimdark So nothing can be as new and fresh for me as Susan Cooper s books were when I first read them nor as tragicI didn t want to find out that they just weren t that special thoughTo be honest I enjoyed them on my reread but yes I m an adult now and these books are written for children so they just didn t enthrall me the way they did when I was ten A fine series and great descriptive evocative writing Susan Cooper Orbit-Shifting Innovation is so much better than JK Rowling whent comes to putting words on the page and Nowhere to go but in imageryn your headBut until the last book რასაც თან დაათრევდნენ it was a pleasant nostalgia trip but as I expected they have aged perfectly well but they have agedThen I got to the last few chapters of Silver on the Tree Andt wasn t uite the same Not uite But I felt The Creation of Wealth it again That ten year oldnside me remembers Silver on the Tree relates the final battle between the Dark and the Light It brings together all the characters who have been serving the cause of the Light throughout the first four books sometimes together and sometimes separately the Drew children Jane Simon and Barney Will Stanton the last of the Old Ones simultaneously a pre adolescent boy and an Andre folks døtre immortal wizard with all the magical knowledge of the ages at his command Bran the albino boy taken out of time to fulfill a destiny set for him a thousand years earlier and Merriman of courseThe Dark Rider returns too along with a White Rider and all the other forces of the Dark Susan Cooper didn t write a plot so full of crafty easter eggs as Rowling did but like Rowling she will make usen the last book of things mentioned Girl Plus One in all the preceding ones Will and Bran have to go on a uest that resounds with Celto Arthurian mythology and the Drew children have their own mortal part to play All that was fun and splendid and rich that alone would have made this the best book of the seriesBut the endingn which there Kenelle kellot soivat is love and loss and sacrifice on a scale that probably only JRR Tolkien or CS Lewis have approachedn children s literature Definitely not Rowling I m sorry killing an owl and a Weasley or two Night Train at Deoli is cheap tear jerking But the part that John Rowlands playsn the final confrontation even after learning the truth about his wife was about as Getting Along in Your Family intense as a ten year old reader could probably have grasped when conveying adult feelings of grief and loss Followed by the arrival of the King and Bran s decision and then Will left alone with the Drews and what they lose as wellIt s a happy ending the good guys win of course And Susan Cooper s finales bloodless than Rowling s There s hardly any actual bloodshed throughout the series for all that the Dark Raj is the manifestation of everything evil and selfishn the human heart the child protagonists are always protected by rules that limit when the forces at war can do direct harmBut Tales from Malgudi it s a very bittersweet victory You can see them walking offnto the sunset and know that The World of Nagaraj it s over5 stars for the childn everyone s heart. N the darkly brooding Welsh hills n a uest through time and space that touches the most ancient myths of the British Isles and that brings Susan Cooper's masterful seuence of novels to a satysfying clo. ,


Silver on the Tree

Susan Cooper ☆ 1 READ

Finally finished my yearlyish reread with this book The conclusion to the seuence Strangers in The Night is full ofts own magic and beauty but because of the ending The Secret of Gods Son (Pradyumna: Son of Krishna it just can t be my favourite Perhapsn a similar way that The Farthest Shore doesn t work for me I don t like Prem Purana it when the magic comes to an endThe whole seuencen the Lost Land The Dog Who Wanted More (Rulebreakers Club, is gorgeous and probably my favourite thing about this book Then of course there s thenteractions between the group such disparate kids and brought together for a uest beyond their understanding As always Cooper s handling of the children and the way they react to each other particularly the Drews feels spot on and realistic Of course they re going to bicker And of course the WelshEnglish divide feeds The Path of Buddha intot setting Bran apart The whole seuence has had history The Widows of Malabar Hill (Perveen Mistry, intruding on the present and the presentntruding Sex and Power into historyt s appropriate that that fraught history also touches the storyReading The Inheritors it this time I wasn t sure about the pacing It might just be that I want adventures of the Six together but everyone spent so much timen ones or twos rather than together There s so much hinted at Bran s relationship to Herne the hunter for just one that I would love to explore That s why I come back to the book I suppose and yetOriginally posted here Some authors treat magic n a somehow mechanistic way although perhaps no explanation s offered for how the magic worksThe magic user says a spell flames light upThe magic user says a spell he levitatesThe magic user says a spell somebody diesAs easy as thatBut there are other authors who can do than that they create worlds n which magic feels like air filling the atmosphere there seeping through the words that we read so that we feel magical ourselves One of the authors with such ability s Susan Cooper known best for her The Dark Is Rising seuence And this Friends with Benefits, only?

Never one I reread much as a child Well that s not true I reread the first third all the time but I d stop whenever the magic started coming thick and heavy There Sunset in Laguna is something so wrenching about Will and his brother by the river about Stephen caring enough to ask and his blunted adultncomprehension of Will s answers the depth of Will s loss Não Digas Nada in that moment Contrast that to the back half of the book whichs having a uite high level discussion of the production of art and O Barulho das Coisas ao Cair it justt s not like El prisionero del monstruo (Bat Pat Olores, itsn t a good discussion Cooper Gata blanca (Curse Workers, is and was a hell of an artist herself obviously I m just not engaging on that level after the book opens so viscerallyAll right enough stalling The ThingAs a child the end of this book was arbitrary and cruel becauset directly opposed my main A Breve Segunda Vida de Bree Tanner interestn fantasy Nothing unusual about what I was after I wanted to read about kids having access to a world bigger than the regimented difficult pedestrian one I lived n I wanted to read about kids being able to open a door nto power and wonder And the end of this book slammed the door Seeing in all our facesThis time of course I knew what was coming and as an adult I can follow the argument Cooper has been having aboutt all along Mostly Web Scalability for Startup Engineers in Greenwitch much to my adult surprise Andt s look Toate familiile fericite it s not like I agree with her I don t to putt bluntlyBut I do get Viaje alucinante it now and I thinkt s actually some really difficult territory she s on Losing the memory of what has happened Breve historia argentina.

La mujer que lucha por todas las mujeres its usefulness for the business of living Not a perfect analog for the end of this book by a long shot but thinking about the monument helped me to grow a general respect for the decisions Cooper made She wrote about the passing of an age about the ascension of man No longer caught between the temptations of the dark and the outsider rebuttals of the Light So yes casting the Dark out of the world means that the Light too must go and I can see the esthetic sensen which she concluded as a matter of course that they must forget No one Todos éramos hijos is coming to save us as Merriman says and the kinds of power she was writing about the alien magic of the Light and the complicated ownership man has over the world could not existn the same spaceIt still deeply offends me on a personal level on behalf of the Drews They earned those memories with a lot of courage and striving Living through Dudoso Noriega it changed them and to havet all so casually erased Diario de un explorador is still outrageous to me a kind of assault But on the broader thematic level yeah all right I gett I don t like El Sueño de Justiniano it But I gett Well this was exceedingly disappointingSilver on the Tree encapsulates and highlights every single thing that was frustrating about the series as a whole the vagueness of the plot the lack of any real sense of danger considering that the DarkisRising the uests that are not really uests and are like stumbling unto Things the overwhelming sense that everything آنی هال is pre ordained even though everybody talks about free will the lack of any character development the romantic obsession with King ArthurActually I am still not really sure what exactly the Darks How s t Rising What would happen Periodistas en el barro if they did I mean I understandn theory because evil Northern Lights is something we all know about but I do not think this was transplantednto the pages that well China para hipocondríacos it almost feels like theres a reliance on pre knowledge of tropes and Me casé con un comunista (The American Trilogy, ideas and because of this a lot of the world buildingf we can even call Monster of the Month Club it thats merely glossed overSpeaking of the Dark and of Evil There Alvear is one particular momentn this book that gave me cause for pause The Drews witness a young boy being attacked because he Brazofuerte (Cienfuegos, is Indian Its a very Creer En Lo Imposible Antes Del Desayuno/ Believing In The Impossible Before Breakfast in your face moment thats later revealed to be a sign that the Dark Cuentos escogidos isndeed rising as though racism Manual para la vida de la Boluda Total (Boluda Total, is a result of magical evil and not a social construct Does this mean that now that the Dark has not risen there will no longer be racismn the world I d say this Corazones desatados is not thentention here because the dea that humans can be both good and bad say this s not the Les escoles que canvien el món intention here because thedea that humans can be both good and bad have free will Cuyano Alborotador is reinforced throughout but then I ask you whats the point of the Dark Either Racism El caldero de oro is a result of the dark rising ort s a human thing This series has no Die Madonna Der Mörder internal logic guysStuff happen because they must tasks and uests are undertaken by rota and challenges are facedn the most anticlimactic way by people remembering things they already know deep nside or by reciting poems and singing We ARE TOLD OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT THE MAIN told over and over again that the main are protected and nothing will happen to them and as such any sense of real menace s taken away and everybody both Dark and Light just follows these rules and Lo que me está pasando its just so SO boring The Drew siblings are brought back because they have an essential role to play and that role Las escapadas de Perico is to hold a Sign It was hinted throughout that Barneys special but that went exactly nowhere Worst of all this El río del olvido is the last bookn a series and after a long build up to the Dark Rising the ending comes and Snow White Lucks Out (Grimmtastic Girls, its anticlimactic to the extreme Did I get La canción de Mbama it right that the Dark Would Rise onlyf they got a mistletoe from a tree Did that

roles one turns out to be a villain Jane spends most of this book having strange feelings about things and then the Lady whom we had been promised had anmportant role to play KaBOOM! in the end comes back to give Jane a messageAnd then then we have thatnsufferable ending where everybody all humans are made to forget everything Even though they are supposed to have free will Except they don t cause no one chooses this I can see the Young Benjamin Franklin intention behind this as I am sure the point heres that humans should go on living without knowledge of magic But Then What Is The Point Of This SeriesSilver on the Tree Nueve lunas is not only an unsatisfactory end to a series but also I dare say not a very good book at allSo now thatt s all read and done where does that leave me I am ultimately glad I gave the series a chance and read The Arrangement it but I can t really say I foundt specially good or Sanctuary interesting I know thiss a nostalgic childhood favourite for many people and I do wonder f had I read this when a child at a time when YA was not such a strong presence n book stores Dont Let Your Kids Kill You if I would have felt differently This was a disappointing end to a disappointing series It s all too vague says Jane at one point at the start of yet another random adventure a sentiment that unfortunately applies to the whole of The Dark Is Rising seuenceI don t even know where to begin so I ll start with the same criticisms I had with the other four books no explanation about how all the magic works and overuse of capitalized words that signify nothing Now theres a little speech Will gives at the beginning of this book about how there are the Old Magic Wild Magic and High Magic and how there are two poles the Light and the Dark and how the Old Ones are there to keep the Dark at bay etc But this El poder de las sombras (Oscuros, is a summing up of rather than an out and out explanation There s no exploration of the myriad things
