A little disappointing

by Lenn13 on Jul 24, 2008

I had already read Wicked and Mirror Mirror by Maguire and was really excited when I received Lost, thinking that it would be equally as great. I was disappointed. The first half of the book was rather boring, but I continued on hoping that Maguire would turn it around. The ending was entertaining and I thought it somewhat redeemed the first half. Still, not my favorite. I haven't lost hope though, and will definitely be reading more Maguire in the future.


not the best...

by syndikins on Sep 6, 2007

After getting tickets for 'Wicked' on Broadway, I read all of the G. Maguire books. I enjoyed all of them immensely except for "Lost," which I found boring, hard to follow, and not worth the read. I think it more worthy of a thesis in a library bookshelf, than an enjoyable book. I will admit that while it was interesting to see an author utilizing obscure quotes to entice the reader, if the reader wasn't a literary hound, the book was just plain tedious. Maguire ricochets back and forth between the main character's relationships, and unlike Faulkner or Wharton, doesn't carry it off. When things finally become interesting at the end, due to a circumstantial spiritual possession by the author's house-haunting spirit, this too becomes boring and, like the rest of the novel, anticlimactic. I would definitely not suggest this novel from Maguire.


Lost is the time it took to read this one!

This book is a definite pass! The plot was vague. The main characters were whiney and flat. I kept reading hoping for something to grab my attention and make an impression, but was sadly disappointed. My advice is to leave this one on the shelf.
