I still don't know what this book was about. I only finished the last 50 pages because I'd already committed nearly 300. Just not my cup of tea ( )

A very psychological tail.Creepy here and there with the intentional flavor of a Victorian ghost story. I felt the tie-ins to Scrooge worked well, but that the Peter Pan and Alice in wonderland ones felt somewhat forced. ( )

I did not enjoy this. There was too much going on and none of it was very interesting. ( )

I LOVED THIS BOOK!! I was enthralled immediately, and could not wait to get back to it, for more! the ending was a little glossed over, though.. and felt unfinished. The haunting was never completely explained, and I wished for more. There were too many characters in the beginning, with a few brought back at the end (and so much has happened, you may forget who they are.) The lead character was an odd duck, but through her transformations, we hope she became a "full" person, complete with a joyous will to live. I loved it, none-the-less!! ( )

This book was a chore to read, and I only finished it because I had brought it on vacation and had no other options. Used to being completely overwhelmed with the deep magic and inimitable creativity, humor, and darkness of Gregory Maguire, this book was a dead fish of a read. I think this would have been a great short story, but it just drags at novel length. ( )

The division of one day from the next must be one of the most profound peculiarities of life on this planet. It is, on the whole, a merciful arrangement. We are not condemned to sustained flights of being, but are constantly refreshed by little holidays from ourselves. We are intermittent creatures, always falling to little ends and rising to little new beginnings. Our soon-tired consciousness is meted out in chapters, and that the world will look quite different tomorrow is, for both our comfort and our discomfort, usually true. How marvelously too night matches sleep, sweet image of it, so neatly apportioned to our need. Angels must wonder at these beings who fall so regularly our of awareness into a fantasm-invested dark. How our frail identities survive these chasms no philosopher has ever been able to explain. - Iris Murdoch, The Black Prince

"Kenneth Grahame wrote about the idylls of choldhoo in Dream Days and The Wind in the Willows, and his son Alistair's death on a railroad track was probably a suicide. One of the original Lost Boys for who James Barrie had invented Peter Pan had also killed himself. Christopher Milne the Christopher Robin of his father's tales, whinged in print up until his death. The curse of childhood fancy." (?)

"But now? Now? Children in the twentieth and this early twenty first century hated the Alice books, couldn't read them, and why should they? Their world had strayed into madness long ago. Look at the planet. Rain is acid, poisonous. Sun causes cancer. Sex=death. Children murder each other. Parents lie, teachers lie, the churches have less moral credibility than Benneton ads. And faces of missing children staring out from the milk cartons-imagine all those poor Lost Boys, and Lost Girls, not in Neverland but lost here, lost now. No wonder Wonderland isn't funny to read anymore, We live there full-time. We need a break from it." (58)

"Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today.
I wish, I wish he'd go away." (?)

"When in danger, when in doubt,
Run in circles, scream and shot." (?)

"But the wanting, she thought, the wantin was an active thing, not a numbness. It was the world that was numb with cold and snow, not hte singer. The singer was fiercely alive in a dead environment." (?)

"Appearing to be talking to yourself clears the way, she observed. And yelling does it more efficiently still." (303)

"Now this is this, or seems to be. When you are haunted by any variety of effective nonsense, like love or guilt or poetry or memory, which are anyway at their bitter root the same thing - the primary symptom is paralysis. You just can't move. Then, all too rarely, the virus is vanquished , the contagion concluded, the spell is broken, the cold front snaps in prismatic splinters. Bright moment, that, and bight moment, next, and so on and so forth. What returns is a sense of presense tense as being not only availiable, but valid." (?)
