The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I can’t say I enjoyed this book. It took me a long time to read it because i just didn’t find it all that interesting – but I don’t think that’s a fair review. It’s a boy book really.
A not-for-Nadine kind of book too. I do appreciate the style of writing, and think my stepson would probably enjoy it. I know it’s a famous story and feel like I’m committing some sort of literary felony by not gushing over it – but my god both the indian and the cowboy were so irritating that I wanted to just give up on the book altogether. I do like Omri though, and I think it’s great when kids read books about kids who are good people. Maybe that sounds insane…as well as lame since most heroes in books are good people…aren’t they? So yeah, very sweet story – but do you ever slog your way through a book not particularly enjoying it and then kind of appreciating it as a whole when you are done?
