Reading Cooper

Just picked up my unread copy of The Dark Is Rising and realised that it is in fact the second book in the series. (Yeah, I know, only forty years late discovering that.) How important is it to have read Over Sea, Under Stone before starting The Dark is Rising?

I read Over Sea as a book at school, and have seen the film of Dark is Rising.

They don't appear to be linked that closely, only one character transfers (who is reintroduced anyway), but the three kids from OSUS appear to be in book three.

I keep meaning to read the whole sequence, but never get around to ordering the books.

The film has no bearing on the book...

And was sufficiently awful that it's in the single-figures number of movies I've walked out of.
