Boneland is Alan Garner's continuation of the story thread which began in his first and enduringly popular fantasy children's novel, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, published in 1960, it has never been out of print. The Moon of Gomrath followed in 1963 taking the story further with the same two children, Colin and Susan. But Boneland is particularly fascinating because it takes the story into adulthood, with Colin again the main proponent. Boneland is read by the experienced actor Robert Powell, at the request of Alan Garner himself.

    " Not what I'd hoped for, but not unexpected. An novel too interested in literary tricks and devices to tell a straight-forward story. The answers are only given obliquely, which wouldn't be too bad, if the process of obfuscation didn't also disguise the fact that some events are never are explained at all (that I could see). But still with some merit even for a non-literati / non-intellectual like me. Very haunting, and the images stay with me. "

    " This is completely different to the 2 preceding, aimed at adults rather than kids I think. Difficult read in the beginning especially, if like me, you read all three in a sequence. This is like a jolt out of the blue, at first I was "what the hell is going on" - stick with it. It's one of those books that you have to think about rather than an easy read. "

    " Beautifully written, but not the book I was hoping for, and not the third book of a trilogy following Weirdstone and MOG for my money: if you really want to know what happened to Susan, or meet some of the other characters again, not happening, sorry. I enjoyed it; he's a great writer - but a little disappointed overall. "

    " As a young 'un, I believe my father recommended that I read the works of Alan Garner. I recall an imprecise image of being in Hellesdon library and seeing the Owl Service and Elidor on the book shelf. I read these two books, as well as Weirdstone, and possibly others, but I have no memory of the stories. However they must have made some permanent impact on me as I couldn't resist picking up this new story from Garner in the bookshop the other day. I won't say too much about this book here as it is an unusual, clever little story that I am not entirely sure I have understood, particularly the ending. It is not really a fantasy story (which you may expect, given the author's history), although there are plenty of elements of mysticism, folk-tale and magic realism. I enjoyed it a lot, and Garner remains a fantastic story teller. "
