    One of Gordon's short novels Fen Runners as with much of his work is set around Wisbech Norwich where the fens run out to the sea and which Gordon spent much of his youth exploring The story follows Kit and Connie both who have always lived close to each other but never met Yet when an event brings them together they both encounter that a mysterious serpentine shadow invisible to all but them Such an encounter draws them closer and deeper into an ancient mystery that lies deep beneath the River Nene my guess re place Although short Gordon retains the complex folk tinged narrative with which he is so well known and he packs much into this story What Gordon does well is the ominous ever growing threat of something invisible and ancient clawing at the young His use of place and weather is wonderful and all help to build up tension An excellent novel to share and discuss with others although I sometimes felt that the narrative jumped a little in places

    I'd love to give this than three stars because John Gordon successfully evokes the odd allure of the Fens a man made landscape that feels earthy and organic than it should precariously balanced between sky and water He also does a great job of summoning up the magic of winter But for me some of the writing is awkward the family scene with Kit and Jenny some of it lifts too much from his Giant Under the Snow and the peril at the climax is resolved a bit too easily

    Not one of Gordon's best books but not bad A couple of details in the early chapters are unnecessarily confusing in a way that can sometimes be typical of novelists tending toward the poetic as Gordon does The story's climactic scene is very good

    Lastekõhedik ja sellena väga hea kuigi mulle meeldiks ehk pikem ja põhjalikum Kuigi oma võlu on ka lühidusel ja konkreetsusel Aga lapsena? Ma ei tea oleksin ehk peljanud aga see ongi ju asja mõte põnevus kerge õudus varjukujud pimeduses ja lumes Tekitas suure himu uisutamise järele

    Sublime but could have used better editing advice towards the end where for at least one chapter the reader is ahead of Kit and wondering why he's being so thick Otherwise ok
