I just finished reading this one again, and I forgot how good it actually is.
If you have only ever watched the movie, then you are missing so much.
The book covers the lives of two orphans from St Cloud’s Orphanage, Homer and Melody, but it is also about the orphanage, and the effects that each has on the other.
The character development of dear Homer Wells and Dr Larch is so detailed and precise you almost forget you haven’t known these people your whole life.
To try and explain the plot would be to undermine how detailed it is.
If you haven’t read it, do so.
It is also one of the 1001 books to Read project, so you can get credit for that as well.
