Resistance. Heartbreak. Betrayal. An unforgettable young adult novel set in occupied France during WRead Review
Playing with the form he created in his trailblazing debut novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick once again sails into uncharted territory and takes readers on an awe-inspiring journey.
A boy named Ben longs for the father he has never known. A girl named Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother's room, and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing.
Ben's story, set in 1977, is told entirely with words, while Rose's story, set fifty years earlier, is told entirely with pictures. The two stories weave back and forth before ultimately coming together. Rich, complex, affecting, and beautiful–with over 460 pages of original artwork–Wonderstruck is a stunning achievement from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.
Well, I have definitely just been struck by wonder!!! This is an amazing book, I love the mystery of the two characters and how one character is in pictures while the other is in writing. I was so addicted that I read this whole book in about 5 hours, 1 day and 2 sittings. I've read Hugo too and I thought it was amazing but Wonder Struck is 10 times better. Brian Selznick has done an amazing job on creating this thrilling book which I'm happily willing to read again any time I can. If you ever get the chance to read this book you should absolutely take the chance!
Well I AM WONDERSTRUCK! A-MA-ZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
this book was in pictures and words and I dont know how Brian Selznick did it. Probably time and selling his house. This book took so much time and money and thats what made it the best. I recomend you all read it.
