If I find a book I like I will find all their books and read them..mostly it works out well, sometimes it works out just fucking fantastic.
As is the case of John Connolly. I think the first book I read by him was Dark Hollow. So I went and started reading all of his books..He does a series in some that have the same characters..I really liked them and read them all. Then I found a book by him that I hadn't read and we didn't have it at the Library but Nancy got it for me from the Waco Library. It's called The Book of Lost Things. I'll read the top of the fly leaf.
"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 powers of stories."
It's a small book, only 339 pages. I read it in 2 days. I fecking loved it. Remember how gung ho I was over The Name of The Wind?....Well, I'm just as gung ho about this one. It's a yafta.
Trust me. It's tied with the #1 position of the best book I read this year, last year and the past twenty-eleven years. I repeat..trust me...yafta read it..
