The Stolen Child

The Stolen Child: A Novel by Keith Donohue
My review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Stolen Child takes the myth of fairies (or goblins, or changelings) in the forest and takes it in a new direction: Suburbia. This group of changelings lives outside a small town, and they change places with children in the town, and make the taken children one of their own. This particular story tells the tale of Henry Day and Aniday, who switch places, then spend the ensuing years chasing after each other, tormenting each other’s nightmares. For a while, they leave each other alone, but as suburbia encroaches on the forest, their paths cross more frequently, and to greater intrigue. A fine read for a more realistically based tale of fantasy.
Next up is The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.
