A bookseller's perspective

I work in the Children's Department at a Barnes & Noble store, and I read all the kids' books I can, just because I love many of them. I think a good story is a good story, regardless of the age it is written for; indeed, sometimes the best stories are the ones written by authors who were not targeting a specific audience, but writing simply to write. I loved 100 Cupboards. (Another bookseller read it and enjoyed it, and so several of us picked it up and all loved it.) It was well-written in a fresh and unique style, and I found the characters and plot interesting and just different enough from the usual fantasy fare that it stands out. Henry, the protagonist, is an odd boy, which I think some readers will identify with; his cousins are funny and realistic kids. I liked how nice his aunt and uncle were to him after his growing up with bizarre parents, and I think it's implied that they weren't caring enough. The worlds the cupboards lead to are interesting, scary, odd - even the boring one -- the post office -- is interesting. Why a post office? I like that. The author has about a hundred possibilities for stories with all the cupboards in Henry's attic room, and he barely scrapes the surface in this book. I hope very much that we find out more about Henry's world, his parents, and all those other worlds in future books. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a slightly different fantasy book.

Corrupt file

I have no idea how good this book is because it won't load into my son's Nook. It downloads as a corrupt file and can not be opened with Adobe Digital Editions, so I can not transfer it into our Nook.

    This is a good book but kind of confusing.

    Just okay, but I would recommend anyway

    This book is an easy read and the characters are likable. It has a slow start, but keeps your cusiosity going about what lies behind those cupboards. I couldn't put the book down as things got really good toward the middle. I would probably read the next book if there is going to be one.
