Inhaltsangabe zu „The Book Of Lost Things“ von John Connolly

High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the loss of his mother. He is angry and he is 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 the myths and fairytales so beloved by his dead mother, he finds that the real world and the fantasy world have begun to meld. The Crooked Man has come, with his mocking smile and his enigmatic words: ‘Welcome, your majesty. All hail the new king.’ And as war rages across Europe, David is violently propelled into a land that is both a construct of his imagination yet frighteningly real, a strange reflection of his own world composed of myths and stories, populated by wolves and worse-than-wolves, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secret in a mysterious book. An imaginative tribute to the journey we must all make through the loss of innocence into adulthood, THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS is for every adult who can recall the moment when childhood began to fade, and for every child about to face that moment. It is a story of hope for all who have lost and all who have yet to lose. It is an exhilarating tale of grief and loss, loyalty and love, and most poignantly, the enduring power of stories in our lives.

Zwar mochte ich die Märchenwelt, in die David sich flüchtet, hatte aber das Gefühl, der Autor hat das Potential nicht voll ausgeschöpft.
