That is all thanks to Horwoods skilful way of inserting woox instincts, habits and typical movements into the almost human way of behaving with regard to communication, love and faith. The story tells of the archival wold mole Privet and her adopted son Whillan as they face the rise of an inquisitorial cult that fashions itself the Newborns.

This is a book for adults and is at times as dark as it is uplifting. Bracken and Rebecca and their trials and hardships and two moles you really care about – a poignant story of love and commitment. Horwood is also a multisensory writer, especially talking of scents, echoes and over all atmosphere and tone in a quite frank yet distinctly poetic way which is neither over inflated nor too brief. I only wish the bold William would produce another trilogy that I can enjoy reading as an adult.

How Moles Come to Life in William Horwoods “Duncton Wood” (Book Review)

More powerful than it has any right to be. Though his characterisation of the daily and emotional life of the moles of Moledom is undoubtedly masterful and remains so throughout the seriesin Duncton wood the overall social structures and traditions that make up the society feel far less well emphasized and drawn than in later books.

Well this is book is still great read it years ago in paper form It is really more of an epic than a novel, spanning many generations and more than a mole’s lifetime, which, apparently, is about five human years. But Duncton Wood is more than just a re-tread of old ground, and its influences are w ‘Duncton Wood’ is a book I well remember coming out and about which I was a little scathing at the time.
