The Book of Lost Things
The Book of Lost Things: A Novel | John Connolly
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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book caught me off guard by how much I absolutely loved it. Dark (at times, very dark) reworkings of some favorite fairy tales, this book felt known & completely unique at the same time. As if Gaiman came in & wrote Narnia before Lewis got there.
I exclusively listened to this audiobook & definitely recommend that version; the reader was great, & I cackled and gasped the whole way through. And the ending had me in tears.

This book was five stars for the first three quarters, but I just didn‘t like the ending. I‘m still glad I read it because there were parts that absolutely delighted me, and as a Dark Tower fan I enjoyed another book influenced by Childe Roland.

Do you believe in fairy tales? Read the review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#the-book-of-lost-things

TheAromaofBooks Oooo this was a book I really couldn't stand! 13mo
JoyBlue @TheAromaofBooks Interesting! Wanna share why? Have you read/liked any of Connolly's other books? Inquiring minds want to know! 😉 13mo
TheAromaofBooks Oh, I had many issues with this one & if you're interested in details I did rant about it at the time on my blog haha - https://thearomaofbooks.wordpress.com/2016/05/07/the-book-of-lost-things-by-john... - but one of the biggest problems I had was that the conclusion was basically that David was the selfish one for not just getting over his mom dying & being excited that his dad got remarried & that this whole journey was about David ⬇ (edited) 13mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) becoming a “man“ by learning to stifle his own grief & emotions & just move on. There were other things that bothered me, but that overarching theme was the part that made me not bother reading any of Connolly's other books. I'm off to read your full review now because I didn't have time to do that last night!! 13mo

A young boy mourns the loss of his mother and uses books as his refuge. As his father remarries the books start to whisper to him, and he ends up in a fantasy world searching for a mysterious book that holds the secrets of the King.

This was a bit sadder and darker than I thought it would be, but I enjoyed joining David on his adventure.

A dark fairy tale that charts 12 year old David‘s growth from an angry young boy into a more nuanced young boy that learns there are many sides to a story.
I loved the incorporation of fairy tales and the epic journey David goes through, how each interaction with a new character is a lesson in life that can benefit him but it‘s up to him to use the lessons he learns, or how he‘ll use them.

A full 5 stars for me! I loved this and finished in less than a week!
What seems like a simple story for a child is of course like all good fairy tales much more suitable for adults.
I enjoyed the retellings of all the fairytales- I wish each had their own book especially Red Riding Hood.
I loved the idea of stories coming alive with each reading and how we create our own dreams 💜

Dealing with the loss of his mother, his father's new wife and baby, David turns to fairy tale stories to escape his anger and pain. As he becomes more angry, another world opens up and David falls inside it. In the other world of disturbing fairy tales, David looks to find a way back home.

A disturbing take on fairytales that makes this book so wonderfully terrifying.

I read this book soon after losing my uncle (he and I were very close; we often bonded over books).

This book was so beautifully written. I loved the varied and fresh versions of well-known fairy tales scattered throughout the chapters. While I didn't relate entirely to David (the main character), I did find some of my emotions aligning with his which was comforting. The ending was heartwarming and satisfying

Anyone else have a genre you keep trying even though you usually end up disappointed? Mine is fairy tale retellings. I want to love them but at best I end up lukewarm.
The intended audience is unclear. The mc, an angry, grieving boy, enters a land of stories, a VERY dark land! He has quest. The premise seems young; the content is mature. The ending is not so happily ever after. I liked some of the spins on the classics. But it also got cloying. 🤷

merelybookish On the upside, it's another chip off #mounttbr. Illustration is of the crooked man Artist unknown. 3y

merelybookish @readordierachel I also don't like mysteries. I struggle with heavily plotted books which I think mysteries have to be. But I envy people who can have a mystery series that is a comfort read. 3y
merelybookish @BookishMe Thanks for the recommendation! I will give it a try. 3y
merelybookish @ravenlee I also don't think thrillers and am pretty okay with that. I guess I feel like there is something to fairy tales I can learn from, which is why I keep trying... 3y
merelybookish @Tamra Yes, me too....fairy tales are a form of fantasy. Do you keep trying it? 3y
merelybookish @Cathythoughts We got snow on Tuesday and more coming tomorrow. You could always come to Colorado to get your snow fix. 😁 3y
Tamra @merelybookish yes! There are exceptions, for example I have liked some Gaiman works and I think Manny by Porter would qualify. Coincidentally, I‘m currently enjoying this and it‘s very well done. 😃 3y
ju.ca.no @merelybookish I‘m not really sure. Maybe it is because I really love fairytales and know them well, that my expectations are too high? But I havn‘t quite understood it yet. I still hope that I‘ll find a brilliant retelling😁 3y
merelybookish @Tamra That looks good! I tend to like kid fantasy books more than adult one. 3y
merelybookish @ju.ca.no Maybe I should go back and just read the original.fairy tales since I didn't read them a lot as a kid. 😀 3y
ju.ca.no @merelybookish maybe :) maybe you‘ll notice that you don‘t like them as much either and will have an answer😅 but I usually do enjoy them much more than the retellings☺️ 3y

My persistent chest cold didn't stop me from going to see the Monet exhibit at Denver Art Museum at 9:45 PM! last night. (They added some evening tix for the sold out show.) So worth it, in spite of the late hour and crowds. This is one he did along the Brittany coast.
Started tagged book this morning on audio. It's the very first book on my Goodreads TBR. 🙂

#FallIsBooked Day 16: This book is not for everyone. It was like a purging of sorts for Connolly whose shadows may have compelled him to embody these #wicked demons into nothing less than the sweet fairy stories of yore – infusing them with every imaginable atrocity known to reside in the darkest corners of a man‘s heart. I felt that even the triumph is tinged with a blunted-kind-of-nagging pain that one can live with– if only to keep breathing.⬇️

A creepy fairy tale for adults that focuses on a young boy adjusting to life during WWII after his mother dies. The book has a wicked step-mother, trolls, and an enchanted forest-all the elements of a classic Brothers‘ Grimm nail biter. This book gave me chills - haunting and definitely memorable.

Finished the other day and forgot to review. I liked Connolly‘s world building. The ebook included details of the many fairy tales that Connolly modified for the protagonist, David, and his coming of age story, which the audiobook did not have. It is set against the background of WWII, but most of the story takes place in the fairytale land. Very thought provoking. 4.0/5.0 ⭐️ #2019

This book was very creative. It is hard to do twists on fairytales anymore, but this book did it well. The only reason I‘m giving it a “So-So” is because it surprised me in a few places where it was very dark/“mature”— I don‘t mind that, but I felt like it didn‘t fit the book that well and was unnecessary. Otherwise, a fun, easy, and entertaining read.

“Stories were different, though: they came alive in the telling. Without a human voice to read them aloud, or a pair of wide eyes following them by flashlight beneath a blanket, they had no real existence in our world. [...] Stories wanted to be read, David‘s mother would whisper. They needed it. It was the reason they forced themselves from their world into ours. They wanted us to give them life.” | Doing my best to bring more to life this year.

Pickpick

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly was a tale about loss and how that can steal the childlike innocence and rush a boy into adulthood. At first I wasn't sure what to think about this book, as I went into it totally unaware. But it soon won me over.

RaimeyGallant Interesting. So similar in title to The Keeper of Lost Things. Maybe I picked up the wrong book. 4y

Part two of my Christmas gift card shopping arrived today! I‘m looking forward to these reads and super excited about my new glass mug 🖤 I finished a book this morning but spent the rest of the day battling a headache bordering on a migraine all day. Starting to feel better but very exhausted. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better reading day 😊

Craftylikefox @WhatThePuck I have read a couple of John Connolly‘s books. This one sounded really good 😊 4y
WhatThePuck @Craftylikefox I've read one of his Charlie Parker books just because I read this one. I was a little disappointed in the Charlie Parker book just bc I was expecting something as fantastic as The Book of Lost Things and while the CP was good it was not TBoLT. 4y
