I wanted to like this more; it was good, it had lots of interesting elements, and I'm a fairytale fan, but somehow it didn't quite hit my sweet spot.

(I think my favourite bit was the Monty Pythonesque Snow White episode.)

While some are going to balk at the stories-within-stories and the trampling at some of their preferred myths and legends, I really enjoyed this! I would suggest this to anyone with an interest in the affects of grief on a family or the affects of myth on how we view life.

Very well written, though sometimes the prose is very-- weighty, shall we say? It left me very thoughtful in the end, and I like that about it. ( )

This was a re-read for me in preparation for the recently published sequel (of sorts), The Land of Lost Things. Because I devoured the book last time, I couldn't remember many of the particulars, so this time round I was able to pay the story a great deal more attention, and pick up subtleties that had escaped me last time. Before I would likely have given the book five stars; because I picked up more nuances this time, my overall opinion is a bit more mixed.

The narrative in The Book of Lost Things very much emulates the voice in which these fairy tales were told, which is both one of the book's strengths and its ultimate weakness. Where we follow the main character David on his journey to adolescence, particularly where he struggles to come to terms with the death of his mother and the subsequent arrival of his stepmother and half-brother, the narration is engaging and heartfelt, and rings very true; on the other hand, the voice that depicts events in Elsewhere largely appears rather detached, so that I struggled at times to engage with what was happening on the page, even while I was able to appreciate David's character development and admire the author's inventiveness and ability to add a different spin on well-known tales.

The author has appended a number of fairy tales and myths that influenced the story, along with his thoughts, which makes for very intriguing and illuminating reading.

It'll be interesting to see how the follow-up compares to the original. ( )

Not my cup of tea. I didn't enjoy the story, or the narration. The fairytale style wasn't my preference - I prefer more Faerie if that makes sense. It was a bit childish, I guess. Struggled to finish it. ( )

Un canto de amor a la lectura en general y los cuentos de hadas en particular, Si te gusta leer, este libro te encantará.
No es un libro para niños: tiene partes algo oscuras. ( )

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.

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.
