    1 thought on “Into the Green”

    1. I’m not entirely sure what I thought of Into the Green. I read it in one go, which normally indicates a pretty good book, but I’m not overwhelmed by it, thinking back. I liked the imagery and the idea of ‘going into the green’, the set up, the world… but I tend to be most strongly drawn by characters, and none of the characters here really got me. I finished it yesterday and I actually just struggled to remember the protagonist’s name (Angharad — I’m a little doubtful about takin [...]

    2. Amazing I found myself wishing the book were longer or that there were a sequel because I enjoyed the world and the characters so much. (Perhaps there is a sequel? I don't know if he does them exactly although I have read some of his things which seem loosely related or based in the same mythology at least.) I took something powerful away from this book. Probably I took away more than one but the thing that struck me as I was reading was about the relationship of iron and 'the green.' The book u [...]

    3. I usually don't find Charles de Lint's novels magical enough for my taste, but this one served me well. I would definitely call it a memorable favourite, and rank it among the archetypal representations of my taste. De Lint makes music a force of magic and power in such a way that is believable. So believable in fact, that I began to feel like I was being enchanted everytime I listened to music, while reading the book. There were also some surprisingly imaginative elements in the book. I particu [...]

    4. Heard a lot about de Lint from T and found this one at the used bookstore down the street. Maybe not the best of de Lint's work- if not that impressed, but it is a quick read and I hope to be on to other of his works soon

    5. Charles de Lint is my favourite author. However this book wasn't nearly as good as his other ones. It felt incomplete and rather like there should have been more. The beginning was great and the setting was marvelous, but then it went nowhere.

    6. Slow pacing at the beginning gives way to an otherwise well-paced and beautifully written story. This is what I think of when I hear the term "urban fantasy".

    7. I would have liked it better if it seemed more complete. I felt like the story wasn't quite finished for as rich a setting as he had created. I would probably like it better if there was a sequel.

    8. Another wonderful fantasy tale by Charles de Lint. As always, I love the characters and how he weaves a story together so magically well.

    9. Ala last time, I'll talk about my (spoiler) least favorite book first. Into the Green is classical Charles de Lint high fantasy. If you like Eyes Like Leaves, Into the Green is a similar (if slightly inferior) book. Angharad is Summerborn, and the story begins in tragedy when her tinker family (including father, mentor, and husband) all die of the plague. Angharad is the sole survivor, and the fae folk gave her a magic harp, which she names after her dead husband.Angharad is a thrice magical per [...]

    10. Not my favorite Charles De Lint book, but excellent nevertheless. It starts off a little slow and reads like a collection of short stories about the same person. Apparently the first part of book was originally published as short stories in Sword and Sorceress, so that makes sense. The writing was lovely and once the plot picked up, it was good.

    11. An ancient artifact of evil is found by chance and enters the world. A young woman named Angharad, who is "Summerborn" i.e. a witch, learns that it is her mission to track down this artifact (a puzzle-box) and face its evil at the risk of great danger to herself, lest all magic be destroyed by its great evil. Her task is complicated by the fact that the general public in her pseudo-medieval world are severely prejudiced against witches, and sometimes lynch them - or worse.With the help of a youn [...]

    12. I give up!I feel like a failure for doing so, but I cannot finish this book. I normally love De Lint, I own most of his books and re-read them. I love his mythic as well as his urban fiction but this one did not grab me.I tried hard, I kept reading but at the end of the day life is too short to read books that you are not enjoying. I found the main character too passive and too uninvolved in her own story. She was clearly not dumb but she did excessively dumb things, she wanted to solve a quest [...]

    13. The first of de Lint's books taking place entirely in a High Fantasy world since, Wolf Moon, Into the Green takes place in a world where witchcraft is a hereditary trait, and non-witches both fear and hunt those with a connection to a mystical realm called "the Green".The main character, Angharad (pronounced Ann-ar-ad), is a tinker, a harpist, and after a tragic attack on her people (sorry for the mild, first chapter event spoiler in a 22-year-old book) which ends in the death of her husband, a [...]

    14. "Today we are all that is left of the old magic," the tale-teller went on. "Our small echo of the gift sets us apart from those around us. But in the old days, when the Blood still ran strong, there was a deeper magic still - held by those who knew the calling-on magic, born of threes. Tinker, harper and witch. Moon, music and the stoneworks of old.""Into the Green" is not one of de Lint's Newford-set urban fantasies, but takes place in a world based in part on Celtic mythology. Angharad, a S [...]

    15. I've heard good things about de Lint so I thought I would give him a try. After finishing this story, de Lint comes off as a poor-man's Guy Gavriel Kay. Interesting ideas, but thin in description. The first half of the book passes quickly in 1st person/3rd person. I thought, at this pace, we're going to cover the protagonist's entire life in 289 pages. Then, as the action builds, the single viewpoint that had preceded splits into five different views, all offering different, slightly overlapping [...]

    16. Quintessential Charles De Lint. It's an early work, and it shows some roughness around the edges, but it has all the qualities you want from De Lint's work: profound magic, pain and heartbreak, hope, redemption, and ordinary people confronting evil. I wasn't sure if I'd like a straight-up high fantasy, non-Newford book by him, but I was pleasantly surprised by this. I wish it was longer, more fleshed out, but I really enjoyed it as it is. Angharad is a proto-type of later heroines like Jilly Cop [...]

    17. One of my all-time favorites, a wonderful book set in an interesting world with a fascinating female protagonist. The story feels like it could have been serialized in magazines first, and is somewhat reminiscent of the works of Howard and Leiber as a result, though the actual tone of the "adventures" and the characters themselves are much deeper. It's not as action-packed as Howard or Leiber's work either, but that's actually a plus here. It's engaging and moves at a very brisk pace. This may b [...]

    18. Charles de Lint has been one of my favorite Canadian authors since he wrote Moonheart many years ago. He is a Celtic folklorist who weaves magic and the world of faerie into what we know of the Canadian landscape. In Into the Green he introduces us to Angharad, a summerborn tinker and harpist. Her travels take her on a mission to save the Green, a world of the Kowrie from both the prejudices of the Winterborn and a strange a consuming puzzle box called the glascrow. Very entertaining and hard to [...]

    19. While reading it, everything seemed very familiar though I have no recollection of the book itself. So, either the book feels so familiar because it's formulaic to the point where I think I've read it before, or I have read it before and it's forgettable to the point where I can't remember any of the characters or details.Either option is possible, I suppose, and neither option is all that flattering to the book.

    20. Light, somewhat underwritten, has a few problems with structure and pacing. But the world introduced in Into the Green is fascinating, and Angharad's quest managed to hold my interest long enough to finish the book.I've only ever read a couple of Charles de Lint's standalone novels (of which this is another), but I think I might try out his Newford series. Just to see if his brand of urban fantasy works for me.

    21. de Lint is one of my favorite authors because he always manages to create worlds that are believable but still magical. Into the Green was good but it seemed short to me. Not really short in pages terms but short in plot or something. I didn't quite enjoy it as much as I usually enjoy de Lint's writing. I think it lacked something.

    22. de Lint is probably my favorite fantasy author though he's very different from others in this genre. I love the way he intertwines magic, the Middle Kingdom and the Otherworld into every day life in a way that makes it incredibly believable. de Lint has magic in the way he puts words together to bring his pictures to mind.

    23. Reasonably good, Celtic-lite fantasy that was a nice, quick read. As per usual, de Lint has a lovely way with words, but the overall story was somewhat patchily written and the main character was a bit thin (indeed, I would have liked to spend more time with some of the other, more interesting characters). Enjoyable but forgettable.

    24. The story of a witch with a magic harp set to protect the wonder of the world. My first de lint book, but it won't be my last. De Lint really knows how to capture the wonder of magic and fairy tale. A young adult book with the usual underlying themes of freedom and individuality, but it still manages to seem fresh. thought it was great.

    25. I felt this book took a while to get going but, once it did, I was hooked. It is a wonderful book full of Celtic Mysticism and quite beautifully written - a must for lovers of the Green Man and all aspects of our folk heritage.

    26. Demonstrates why we respect our soldiers and the courage they have to have to be in the military. Again, made me mad about how disrespectful others can be to the people that give them the freedom to be ignorant of what people have done to survive in military to help other countries.

    27. Any collection that the author apologizes this profusely for this is a collection of deLint's earlier work, and most of it is not nearly as good as what he's written since. That said, there were some really lovely stories hiding in this book.

    28. While it did come together in the end, this book was a bit more disjointed than I like. I would love to have read this story expanded, with characters I could love, rather than read it as a news article. This fact makes me sad as I'm used to more from C dL, bit the story is still a great idea.

    29. An excellent book. The first couple of chapters were different in style from the remainder of the book, having started life as short stories. I loved the gentle lyrical feel of the book and the well drawn characters. It flowed effortlessly and still managed to be a page-turner.
