The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
If you are like me and have ever noted that some of the best fairy tales are the dark ones where characters have three eyes, the bad guys eat children and even the heroes and the princesses are aren’t perfect, this book is for you. Imagine a story that comes to life borne out of your fears, weaknesses and jealousies and you get put smack dab in the middle, expected to be the hero and conquer them all.
On another note, I haven’t come across such creativity in a long while.
So, its a little dark, (ok maybe a lot) but it’s one where the dark gets darker and the light gets lighter.I suppose I did not tell you much, but that makes it all the better. It’s really better discover this book.
