A boy who won’t stop his quest not even in front of dragons and witches. It’s
This book got my interest because they were people who disappeared leaving just their clothes behind and it was so similar to ‘The leftovers’, I mean I haven’t read the book but I’m a huge tvshow fan.. It’s so peculiar. I’ve found out already in the first chapters that this was a story completely different from what I’ve expected. The storyline focused on Max, a baby different from any other infant who suddenly pops up from nowhere; after Max gets adopted people stars to disappear.. logically, it seems that he has something to do with it.
This story is a mix of fairytale, fantasy and mistery. There are witches, wizards, dragons and of course a mysterious wood.. Also, there are references to the original fairytales, i.e. The beginning woods was called in so many different ways in the past and between them there was NEVERLAND.
I loved how they compared reality and dreams, in fact the theme of dream is actually really important in the narration.
I wasn’t really thrilled about a few things: first of all, the story is pretty damned slow at the beginning and you need to find your interior strength in order to keep going with the story, at start I was wondering if the narration was supposed to going somewhere; second of all, the french and german languages… there are a few sentences that are written in these languages, I think they should come with a little note at the end of the page. It’s pretty annoying jump some sentences because you don’t know their meaning. I know they’re not essential for the storyline, but still.
