The Boggart

The Boggart by Susan Cooper was an okay book: the kids have parents – though they are somewhat distracted and self-absorbed – and behave in a reasonably normal kid fashion but I just had a really hard time with the [small spoiler alert] with the deaths of the old Scotsman and his faithful hound at the beginning of the story. I’m also not a fan of boggarts: playful tricksters without remorse doesn’t cut it for me.  That said, I enjoyed the computer-based plot mechanisms – though the technology described is now quite dated.
