The Book of Lost Things - Review

I loved this.  Clever story telling, with a big emotional pull, and a very interesting take on grief and how it can mess with your head.  Can see why Zo knew I'd like it. 

A fairytale but not for kids.  Well maybe for kids but not one they'll see the subtlety of.  

Any book that's last line has the hairs on the back of your neck tingle is alright by me.

4/5

I'm gonna lend it to Mr Gibbons to see what he thinks... he loves the books, although his seem to be migrating to mine.  Fore they do not love the Gibbons.

So now I'm onto the first of yesterdays purchases, The Magicians Guild by Trudi Canavan.
