Beschreibung

New York Times bestselling author John Connolly's unique imagination takes readers through the end of innocence into adulthood and beyond in this dark and triumphantly creative novel of grief and loss, loyalty and love, and the redemptive power of stories.

High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother. He is angry and alone, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in his imagination, he finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld. While his family falls apart around him, David is violently propelled into a land that is a strange reflection of his own world, populated by heroes and monsters, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book... The Book of Lost Things.

An imaginative tribute to the journey we must all make through the loss of innocence into adulthood, John Connolly's latest novel is a book for every adult who can recall the moment when childhood began to fade, and for every adult about to face that moment. The Book of Lost Things is a story of hope for all who have lost, and for all who have yet to lose. It is an exhilarating tale that reminds us of the enduring power of stories in our lives.

The protagonist is a small boy, yet the story is gruesome and cruel. The fairy tale retelling does not shy away from taboo topics such as necromancy, sodomy, torture and many more. While some characters like the dwarves were entertaining, I could not connect with any of the characters and honestly didn't care for them. The moral of the story was fit for a young audience, while the tone of the book was not. I did appreciate the inclusion of queerness in a medieval setting, but all in all the story was simply a character test for the protagonist and the growth did not seem organic. He is only starting school and yet the novel paints him as becoming a man through the acts of killing and defending, which in my opinion makes him a traumatized child, not a man. Especially set against the backdrop of his home being ravaged by war it is odd. The antagonist was well written though and I really liked the inclusion of the original tales and the author's notes and thoughts on them in the appendix.
