The book of lost things

My feelings for this book surprised me after my intensely passionate, torrid love affair with The Child Thief. The story made me love it despite myself.

We meet David as he is watches his mother slowly die from illness.

Jonathan vanished as a young boy and has never been seen since. While Rose is nice and tries to form a bond with David, he finds himself increasingly angry at her and his new half-brother. Eventually David finds himself in another world where dark, grim versions of classic fairy tale characters exist but are nothing like the way they are normally portrayed.

The depictions of these characters are outstanding and it often takes a while to identify who they are because they are so stripped of the normal fluffy accoutrements.

While, most of the tone is serious and even bleak, there are some great moments of comedy. Their relationship with Snow White is anything but pleasant.

However, it is very, very funny. David soon discovers that he must make it to the King of this new world who might have the power to send him back home.

He keeps us engaged as he introduces us to the characters and slowly allows the fantasy elements to creep and and crawl and bleed into the narrative. This makes the transition from our world into the fantasy world feel authentic and seamless.

In addition, the early events of the story turn out to be critical to the central plot and final resolution of the story and so form important threads in the overall tapestry. As alluded to above, I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel given how emotionally spent I was after reading The Child Thief.

The characters are well drawn, with details and shadings to their personalities that make them come alive. I bonded with David very early on making the dangers that he faced all the more gripping. Overall, a sensational book that over came great odds to pleasantly surprise me.
