Carnegie of Carnegies


It's been announced that Philip Pullman's Northern Lights has won the Carnegie of Carnegies (about which I posted in April). I confess, I voted for Alan Garner's The Owl Service, simply because it had such a huge impact on me as a child reader.




(I confess that I heard this news late yesterday but I was trying to work on both my current fiction tales (simultaneously more or less), so I didn't post it !)

I'd go for Rosemary Sutcliff. (e?)

Mind you, in my opinion, this is Pullman's masterpiece. His other books that I've read come nowhwere near it.

It's a very good book, but it simply didn't have the impact on me that The Owl Service had...
