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 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 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.
I read this book last year. I love the book but the main reason I read it was for the amazing pictures. Without the pictures, it is easy to get lost in the descriptions. It might just be me but I think this story would be 1,000,000, times better with its pictures.
Awesome-But Where Are The Awesome Pictures?
This book is Okay. But where are the really amazing picture Brian draws? I would like it alot better if the pictures were there.
This is a great book but i'd say that it would be better if you bought the actual book and read that because Hougo Carbret has alot of amazing pictures that are only in the book.
