    5. 3.5I admit that for a while I thought this book might be one of those children s picture books whose ratings reflect the artwork and not the story And yeah, the artwork is pretty nifty But as the story began to unfold and became entwined with historical events, I gradually turned my attention from the drawings to Hugo Cabret and co The book is set in Paris in the 1930s and Hugo is an orphan who only manages to survive each day by clinging to the hope that he will one day fix the automaton his fa [...]

    6. There is something awesome feeling about getting through 400 pages of a book on an hour lunch break, and still have time to use the bathroom and punch in three minutes early So what if the book has lots of illustrations and it s written for children, it s still a real sense of Herculean reading, even if it s not that impressive I liked this book a lot I considered giving it five stars I don t read children or young adult novels so I don t have much to compare it to The book has much depth thoug [...]

    7. 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 comments The 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 c [...]

    10. Read this review and on my blogIn a nutshell The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a magical and heartwarming read that anyone could enjoy.I put off reading this book for far too long I ve yet to see the movie adaptation but I ve had my eye on this book for a while Finally, I decided to borrow it from my local library and I loved it Shortly after reading this, I also read Wonderstruck by the same author, which was just as wonderful It s been a few months since I read both but I can still remember how [...]

    11. I read the entire book in a few hours this afternoon despite being about 500 pages it only has about 26,000 words and much of the page space is taken up with interesting formatting as well as sketches that help fill in some scenes of action and emotion to move the plot forward It s a very interesting and ingenious idea for a book, one I quite appreciated I almost always focused on the words than the pictures in storybooks as a child, and I suppose that remains the case here, though it was neat [...]

    13. This is one of those rare books where the movie is much better than the novel.Skip the book, but do see the movie, Hugo , which is marvelous The audio reader s style didn t help matters Jeff Woodman reads the book like he is narrating it to kids Very likely that s his main audience, but his reading style is so self consciously slow and declamatory, it detracts from the story.Update 11 28 2015 I got a copy of the physical book from the library Per the suggestions of GRers Jefferson and Judy see c [...]

    16. This massive hardcover might have been worth four stars as a traditional novel, but the whimsical and cinematic illustrations absolutely push this book to a four I read it in an evening and wished that I could ve had it when I was 10 I would ve been in hog heaven A great middle grade novel wondering why all my reviews are five stars Because I m only reviewing my favorite books not every book I read Consider a novel s presence on my bookshelf as a hearty endorsement I can t believe I just said he [...]

    17. As I was a little that 2 3 through The Invention of Hugo Cabret when I started wondering how many stars that I would give it At first, I was even considering giving it 3 stars, which suprised me since so many people had told me that it was amazing I have, since settled on giving it 4 starts, because I can t really sum up my first reaction to the work as It was amazing which corresponds to 5 stars However, now that I have said that, the following criticisms that I have for it that have prevented [...]

    18. OK, was being a twonk and ruined my life by making all of the lovely pictures that I wanted to post look dodgy and skew whiff So, everyone close your eyes and pretend there are pictures here.Lots of lovely pictures.More lovely pictures.Even lovely pictures.Imagination is fun.You may wonder why I am posting so many pictures of this book for my review Jo I hear you cry Where are the words And I will reply Exactly Where are the words I m being clever and smart and illustrating my only problem I ha [...]

    19. I wasn t sure what to make of this book at first, because I typically don t read children s or middle grade literature, whatever category you would slot this book into I also didn t have really any idea of what it was about, but the beauty of the book itself made me decide to give it a try and I as not disappointed The book follows a young orphan called Hugo Cabret, who lives inside the walls of the Grand Central station in Paris, mending clocks and stealing toy parts from a local vendor When he [...]

    20. Nu stiu cum este cartea asta pentru un copil, daca mie ca adult mi s a parut minunata Conceptia cartii, incepand de la coperta , supracoperta, desenele care completeaza atat de frumos povestea, paginile dintre capitole care sunt negre, deci iesite din tiparul obisnuit, totul este foarte atragator.Si povestea este una frumoasa, care te atrage, te incita si te face sa inghiti cu usurinta pagina dupa pagina.Este povestea lui Hugo, un copil care ramas fara parinti, ajunge in grija unui unchi, care l [...]

    21. I received this book and upon flipping through the pages and being amazed by the art that I saw, I decided to just sit down and read the book, which I did in about an hour A great deal of the story is made up with beautiful sketch drawings, and there are also real photographs as well as, of course, writing, which is very good writing that accompanies the art well.This is a beautiful story and tribute to Georges M li s I have seen the movie before and enjoyed it, but reading this book was such a [...]

    22. I m including this in graphic novels because that is probably the best description for this rather unique book After all it s a novel consisting of many beautiful graphics and some written pages.While The Invention of Hugo Cabret is aimed mainly at a younger audience of children it appears to be the kind of perfect novel for parents as well I can imagine a modern parent trying to interest their child in reading by sitting down and reading this work with their child It is in many ways a modern fa [...]
