The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly


This was definitely not my usual read. It's an adult fairy tale. I liked it and it was a quick read for a big fat book but I can't say that I loved it. It was enjoyable but I am not really into the whole fairy tale thing nor have I ever been. I hear great things about Connolly and that all his books are not quite the same so I am going to look into his other books, which is quite a few.
I gave this book 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed David's character and I like how he changed is OCD and all of his thoughts. This story was fun to read because it showed you just how naive you really are at that age and if you are brought to face your fears up front then it kinds forces you to open up and see the truth and face your problems head on. I love just how he grew up in a matter of days. It was enjoyable indeed but I still will stick to my style reading!

This was a very dark book and not the usual fairy tale.

That was my thoughts too, but maybe using Fairy Tale is not the right words Maybe dark mystical dreaming??? I don't know the right words!!!! LOL
