The Seeker: The Dark is Rising

There is a movie coming out on the 5th. The Seeker: The Dark is Rising. This has not been hyped much, but it is based on a story that is very near and dear to me. The Dark is Rising is the first book I ever read. I mean the first. I had read a few lines out of pug but never more of the book then I ever had to.

In 5th grade a teacher by the name of Mrs Michaels was teaching the special ed classes. She noticed I had a extreme interest in the subject matter related to the dark is rising and she checked out the book for me to read. Despite it being at a collage reading level and I not being able to read at a first grade level I wanted to know what the book said. So I struggled and read and she renewed the book for me. In the course of the school year I read the book. That summer I read the second in the series. Early then next school year I read all the others. By the end of 8th grade I got to see Mrs Michaels and tell her I had read all the books and was leaving special ed classes for advanced classes.

The book is incredibly good. At least it was to me. I hope the movie is as well. I want the movie to be great and I want it to be popular because I have a lot of emotion in the book that tought me to read.

Thank you Mrs Michaels.
