Suddenly, he finds himself in a brutal land populated by trolls, harpies, and werewolf-like creatures.

Oh, why didn't I review the book immediately after I'd read it. Now, it's been more than 2 months, and I honestly don't think I can do justice to the book with this late review. Nevertheless, I'll try.

It's a really good book. Not out-of-this-world amazing, but good. Better than good. The horrifying creature that is the Crooked Man has been described so well that he seems to come to life. If one has the time, this book is a definite recommendation! ( )

Entertaining story of a 12 year old boy coming to understand adulthood though the clever use of a mix of Fairy Tales. Reminds me of many authors who have put famous characters and tales in their own works (Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, for example). The tale was quick to read, and the boy makes all the morally correct choices in the end. This book also included an interview with the author, and the author's notes on the original resources he used (although I was surprised there was no mention of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes, particularly from the Tale of Goldilocks and the three bears. This ending of the book was also very reminiscent of Brewers Phrase and Fable; Louis Borges' Imaginary Beings, and Joseph Campbell's The Hero With a Thousand Faces (the last of which Connolly did reference).

I was expecting something a lot darker and menacing - instead I got a fairly standard tale of a boy retreating into a fantasy world to cope with things outside his control. I did enjoy the twists on the tales (replacing female protagonists with male, evil fathers instead of mothers - the twist on Snow White, with Communist dwarves and a monstrous Snow White was great and I wish we had spent some more time there.) and most of David's adventure in the other world, but for some reason I wasn't invested. The Crooked Man wasn't scary (even when Connolly went into detail about his various misdeeds [not scary but it did make me sad]), there never seemed to be a sense of real danger for David. And, overall, pretty predictable. ( )

An easy read with some dark and gory plots which was engaging and thrilling.

This is an adult novel steeped in children's literature that cannily makes its 1940s junior protagonist credibly ignorant of aspects which the grown-up reader, or any modern kid, will catch at once.

Written in the clear, evocative manner of the best British fairy tales from JM Barrie to CS Lewis, The Book of Lost Things is an engaging, magical, thoughtful read.
afegit per Stir | editaThe Independent, Kim Newman (Sep 25, 2006)
 
Good ideas, these afterthoughts, every one; but rather than go back and write them in, he sticks them down in the pluperfect and hurries on. The result is less a novel in any genre than a catalogue, a dispiritingly detailed outline for something Connolly might like to write, if he only had the time, or the talent, or a decent editor.

He would talk to them of stories and books, and explain to them how stories wanted to be told and books wanted to be read, and how everything that they ever needed to know about life and the land of which he wrote, or about any land or realm that they could imagine, was contained in books. And some of the children understood, and some did not.
