If I owned this book I wouldn t give it away unlike a few that I m trying to pass on, so that next time I move house there aren t quite as many boxes for the poor removal men to carry there were over boxes of books What else can I say There are some excellent reviews done already For me, Horwood has got the combination of animals and fantasy and faith and countryside just right I never once wanted to skim through any of the descriptive passages, and I really enjoyed the anthropomorphism now that didn t touch type quickly moles doing the things that moles do, but also interacting like humans in community. I do hope the library has the next one sitting waiting for me on the shelf Sadly, this library in my new town of residence charges for each item reserved I am not going to pay anything at a free library, so I have to adjust my library habits But that s got nothing to do with reviewing this book, so I ll get going. A re read for me, this has always been my favourite of the Duncton books There are six in all, three in the Duncton Chronicles and three in the other series But this is the best of them, I felt that the others got a little too bogged down in philosophy and Horwood turned slightly preachy with his pacifist moles. Despite that, I will be on the lookout for the others in this series as I had forgotten how well written they were These moles are full of life and personality, yet at the same time they remain moles throughout the book.

Series overview[ edit ] Duncton Wood and its sequel have as its protagonists anthropomorphic moles living in Moledom, a community in Great Britain. Moledom has its own social organization, history and written language. The moles do not otherwise make use of technology or clothing. The other focus of the Duncton series is the Stone, a religion based on the standing stones and stone circles of Britain. The novels are mainly set in and around megalith sites such as Avebury and Rollright. The eponymous wood itself is fictional, inspired by Wittenham Clumps and Wytham Woods both near Oxford where the author was living when he wrote the first book and borrowing its name from a village in West Sussex.
In the course of the books, individual moles travel great distances quite quickly Duncton Wood in Oxfordshire to Siabod in Wales and back again for example. Duncton Quest and Duncton Found depict a religious conflict between The Stone and an opposing crusading order known as The Word. In the midst of these events is the birth and martyrdom of the Stone Mole, a focal messianic Christ figure named Beechen.
The inhabitants of the now-flourishing Duncton system look upon the events of the past with reverence. Prior to its completion, Duncton Tales, originally conceived of a stand-alone sequel, had evolved into the first volume of a second trilogy. The story tells of the archival librarian mole Privet and her adopted son Whillan as they face the rise of an inquisitorial cult that fashions itself the Newborns.
The series continues with Duncton Rising and Duncton Stone
