Reviews

"...A rare imaginative feat and the taste that it leaves is haunting." The Observer "One of the first and best [novels] for and about teenagers; it remains one of the most original and gripping ghost stories... timeless." Amanda Craig, The Times "Alan Garner's The Owl Service is not meant only for children or anyone else; it's a novel; and not many better novels will be published this year...The power grows, throbs nearer, builds to unbearable tension, and comes to wild release in the last few pages." The Guardian "A fascinating book... The Owl Service is a fabulous, multi-layered book of mystery and suspense." The Book Bag "This book is a superb piece of architecture in which every detail plays its proper part." Growing Point
