"The Dark is Rising"
by Susan Cooper
Brandon had picked up this book a few years ago; apparently it was one of his childhood favorites. So I figured that while I had some spare time on my hands, I'd indulge in a bit of light reading and check it out. Well.... that and he'd picked up a copy of the new movie that was (loosely) based on the acclaimed novel. I love to read the books behind the movies. They're usually tons better ;) This book was no different. Hands down. Sooooo much better than the movie! Which of course made me glad that I saw the movie first, that way I wasn't disgustingly disappointed with it.
