The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
The Book of Lost Things

Mary Portukalian, September 20, 2011

Eerie, magical, familiar, wonderful, woodsy, lyrically beautiful, full of language that sounds familiar but is completely new--in this twisted tale, Connolly creates a savage world based on folk tales and fairy tales that have become tame over years of telling. He calls to mind the darker side of these fables--the terror of many myths so often skimmed over. The world Connolly has created is one I'd never ever want to get to--even in my dreams--but I love the window he opened for the curious to peek into.
