ebook ↠ The Invention of Hugo Cabret ê Brian Selznick

Drawing a treasured notebook a stolen key a mechanical man and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate tender and spellbinding mystery If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from when you go to sleep at night just look around This is where they are made I might be part of the minority who didn't really enjoy this book and this breaks my heart because it looks truly gorgeous The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a story told with dozens of stunning illustrations and few words Unfortunately I didn't find the story itself very interesting This book contains one of my most hated tropes the secret which has no reason to exist and still it's kept just to keep the story going I also found the characters a little underdeveloped ad honestly I didn't grow attached to Hugo at all This might be one of those cases in which the movie is better than the book for me but only for the steampunk feel because for the rest I didn't like that one either So overall the three stars are an average between the stunning illustrations and the plot that for me was pretty much lacking I am still glad I purchased this book because it looks amazing but i don't see myself re reading it

The Invention of Hugo CabretKs with an eccentric bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy A cryptic I felt intimidated by the idea of reviewing Hugo Cabret and wondered if anyone would help me Luckily the cast of Terry Gilliam's 1989 movie The Adventures of Baron Munchausen were delighted to come to my rescue Here are some selected commentsThe Right Ordinary Horatio JacksonI do not approve of this absurd confection which even the most cursory glance will reveal to be utterly lacking in rationality A small boy cannot hide in the walls of a station and tend its clocks; a clockwork automaton cannot write a lengthy novel complete with pictures; and even the author admits that his portrait of a distinguished French film maker is I regret to say entirely the product of his deplorable imagination People who flout these elementary principles are liable to come to a very sticky end Now I am afraid I have important business which I must attend to Thank you and good dayBaron MunchausenYou say you are impressed by the meticulous craftsmanship loving execution and unusual plot I concede that my diverse adventures trips to the Moon routing the Turkish army and other such trifles have hitherto prevented me from demonstrating my own literary talents Nonetheless I wager that I can within the hour create a graphic novel which in every way is far superior to this one If I fail you may cut off my head These are my terms what are yoursSally SaltIf I did have a brother I wish he was like Hugo And if I had a sister I wish she was like Isabelle And I think Uncle Georges is a bit like the BaronParis looks very pretty Next time we go there I won't just stay in the theater all the timeThe Goddess VenusMr Selznick what a handsome mustache Shall we dance
