Summary: Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks---like the gears of the clock he keeps---with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the train station, Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden massage from Hugo's dead father from the backbone of this intricate, tender, spell-binding mystery.
Review: This book is intricate and brilliant. The drawings are so intricate that they are brilliant. This book has tons of pictures but it wasn't just some children's book, they were detailed and portrayed the story well. The drawing's are most of the book and instead of describing things in words the drawing shows you what everything looks like. The story is very interesting. It is about Hugo and and how he needs to get his notebook back. He meets Isabelle and she is wonderful she is adventurous and always wants to learn more and loves to read.
I first heard about this book after the movie came and I like reading books that go with movie's. I wanted to know if the book or movie it better, and if the movie did a good job portraying the book. I personally like the movie a tad more, don't really know why. It might be because I saw the movie first. Well I recommend seeing the movie and reading the book, they are book great.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
