The Book of Lost Things: A Novel

The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly The first 50 pages or so were really promising. I sympathised with David and his situation. I wanted to know more about his "psychosis". And I guess I did find out but not in the way I wanted.Too much but nothing happened in this book. I don't know how to review it because it is quite forgettable. The "twist" on fairytales felt monotonous and forced. Cannibalism? Obesity? Really...I would have been happy if this book didn't have this other world David went into and we just went with him as he learned to cope with his grief and situation. I'm not sure who the target audience for this book is. Because it's too dark for children but too "childish" for young adults/adults.
