The Book of Lost Things wasn’t what I expected when I picked it up, but I enjoyed the surprises. It breaks the rule that the main character of a novel dictates the age of the readers, and rightfully so. Anyone who enjoyed the films Pan’s Labyrinth and The Brothers Grimm would enjoy this book. If Connolly can make fairy tales this creepy, I can’t wait to read some of his thrillers. But I have to say, I’ll never look at Red Riding Hood the same way again.
