A young boy is ushered into a subterranean world where he encounters a civilization and kingdom unlike anything above ground. A young boy swimming off the cliffs of Cornwall discovers a cave, the entrance to a wonderful new world of giant, long-living people, fish that swim in the air, flower-flavored water, and varying time patterns.

Under Plum Lake book. Lionel Davidson is most known for Israeli-Middle East Spy novels. His few children's books are written under a different name (David Line) and are reality based adventure books

Under Plum Lake book. His few children's books are written under a different name (David Line) and are reality based adventure books. There's a distinct pattern here. I can name quite a few Mystery/Thriller authors that write one amazing children's fantasy novel, which reach right into the core of Faerie, to the magical unknowns of the subconscious world, and then for some reason, never write another. LIONEL DAVIDSON (1922-2009) was much admired bu his fellow writers - Graham Greene, Rebecca West, Frederic Forsyth and Philip Pulman among them. He wrote eight adult vels, winning the Gold Dagger award for crime thrillers an unprecedented three times. He also wrote children's books under the name of David Line. But the eerily evocative UNDER PLUM LAKE stands alone. He wrote eight adult novels, winning the Gold Dagger award for crime thrillers an unprecedented three times.

But Davidson's rather linear version lacks the truly dreamlike, inevitable, shapely quality of the best variations; his wonderland often seems too much like Disneyland (rides, food, rainbow colors); and Barry's adjectival dependence on ""weird"" and ""fantastic,"" though perhaps accurately adolescent, is a drag.

This book just rocked my world! I heard about it from an article on Atlas Obscura, and it sounded intriguing. A university professor in the article had said that he taught the book in one of his classes, and many students commented that it seemed like far too mature a book to give to a child--I believe they felt terrible sorrow when Barry, the main character, leaves the world of Egon forever. I didn't feel that way--I think the book is an excellent reminder for us to slow down and remember to enjoy our lives. Children already know that, and it's something we forget as we grow older. There's nothing distressing in this story, unless we're unwilling to accept that we could live happier, better lives if we were willing to live more deliberately.

I can see this book being something I re-read every year. I love it.

This is a fantasy-adventure story similar to "The Never Ending Story", where a boy feeling out of place goes off to a far away world. The yearning and wonderment of the protagonist at the end of the novel has always stayed with me. I looked this up and found a used version on Amazon for cheap. I always liked the jagged pages that come with version, it further added to the story. The beginning was a little difficult to follow when I was 9 or 10 as were some other bits of the book but later re-reads over the years brought these bits into focus and I was able to enjoy the book on a new level the older I got. How this hasn't been optioned as movie with today's CGI capabilities is beyond me.

I ordered this book because of the reviews on Amazon.com - I like kids' books even though it has been a long time since I was a kid. I also liked Rose of Tibet by the same author. Under Plum Lake is pretty strange - it's the classic tale of the Garden of Eden, or Shangri-La, the protagonist is shown paradise and then shown the door, cast back into his normal life. However, it has a tragic effect on him - he can't function in his real world anymore because he longs to go back to the underwater paradise, it's all he can think about. Well-written, very colorful, sad and even stressful - also it seemed a lot like an LSD trip. By the way, one of my favorite books as a kid that I found again as an adult is Tom's Midnight Garden, although it is meant for a younger reader it is just as engrossing and evocative as Under Plum Lake.

The book is best read slowly and savored like a perfect favorite piece of chocolate or favorite recipe. The colors and watery images are ideal for an art project.

I loved this book as a child! Now I get to read it to my children. A unique story
  • Bulace
What a bunch of new age drivel! BOARING!!!! A waste of paper - or kindle space. Characters have no depth. You can't even like the hero!
I thought this was a book I had ben looking for - take my advice pass this by.

I found this book when I was 10 or 11 at the library and I instantly bought a copy. I read it many times and told all of my friends about it. In highschool I made the mistake of lending it to someone and have never seen it since. I have looked high and low and have gotten many other people I know involved in my search. It is the most wonderful, vivid story I have ever read. I went through a book search company and they found a hardcover edition for me. Even at 26 yrs. old I still love this book. It's the kind of story you wish would really happen to you and it makes you want to go looking for secret entries to caves in Cornwall, England and any other mysterious places you hear about. I was thrilled to see it here on Amazon.com and even more to see other people love it as much as me.
I was real sorry to find out that this fantastic book is nolonger available. When I read it about 4 years ago, I borrowed itfrom a Public Library and I could not put this book down! It totally enraptured me. It was as if the book beckoned me to continue reading. I finished it in one day and for many years after, have dreamt about it and have been so desparately searching for it, so that my sons could read it and enjoy it as much as I did. My biggest regret is returning Under Plum Lake to the Library. I simply can't understand why this book isn't a classic! I won't rest until I find it again, this time I'll make it a part of our permanent home library to pass down, as the treasure it is!
