Chi sa dirmi se e quando uscirà in italiano?
Navigando ho trovato queso brevissimo commento:
As 12-year old David takes refuge from his grief in the myths and fairytales so beloved of his dead mother, he finds the real world and the fantasy world begin to blend, with terrifying consequences.
E perseverando ancora questo:
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 power of stories."
High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother. He is angry and 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 his imagination, he finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld. While his family falls apart around him, David is violently propelled into a land that is a strange reflection of his own world, populated by heroes and monsters, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book... "The Book of Lost Things."
An imaginative tribute to the journey we must all make through the loss of innocence into adulthood, John Connolly's latest novel is a book for every adult who can recall the moment when childhood began to fade, and for every adult about to face that moment. "The Book of Lost Things "is a story of hope for all who have lost, and for all who have yet to lose. It is an exhilarating tale that reminds us of the enduring power of stories in our lives.
MI ISPIRA! MI ISPIRA!
Finché l'erba cresce, il vento soffia, il cielo è blu.
I libri sono come le fanciulle ti affascinano, non ti fanno dormire, ti fanno ridere, ti fanno piangere, ti prendono, dimentichi tutto per loro, ne sei geloso, ti abbagliano con la solarità, ti tradiscono ma alla fine le/li perdoni sempre.
