Critical acclaim from 1963: "It is not only powerful but remarkably sophisticated." The Guardian "Weird and marvellously evocative tale of Celtic mysteries, elves, spirits and strange presences felt, mingled to make high adventure for Colin and Susan -- and peril for Susan. It is a timeless story, full of wonder and magic, terror and beauty. A fine author indeed, and perhaps one of a new generation of classics." Books and Bookmen --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Alan Garner was born and still lives in Cheshire, an area which has had a profound effect on his writing and provided the seed of many ideas worked out in his books. His fourth book, 'The Owl Service' brought Alan Garner to everyone's attention. It won two important literary prizes -- The Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal -- and was made into a serial by Granada Television. It has established itself as a classic and Alan Garner as a writer of great distinction. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Alan Garner books are among my most favourite children's books. His writing is superb and the stories enchanting. His fantasy rivals CS Lewis and Tolkien.Published on March 4 2013 by carolyn ray
This is the second in Garner's ALDERLEY books, and can certainly be read alone -although one will perhaps do better by beginning with THE WEIRDSTONE OF BRISINGAMEN. Read morePublished on Nov. 11 2001 by John Anderson
The moon of Gomrath is part of a duology along with the very highly recommended 'Weirdstone of Brisingamen'. Read morePublished on Jan. 3 2001 by J. A. Kerr
The Moon of Gomrath is a wonderful work of fantasy and mythology. It is a children's book, but like all of the best literature, can be read at any age. Read morePublished on April 4 1999
