I think I figured out why Crouch books suck you in so effectively. You always kinda hit the ground running. There's immediately urgency and mystery and it keeps you on that edge, with the stakes raising and game fields changing right up till the very end. I read this all in one night. It grabbed me from the very beginning and I could not put it down until I finished. Looking forward to book 2.

This is such a magnificently wonderful book. It is a real treat to read.
I grew up loving the movie and saw the musical adaptation a few years ago. I love that all three versions are slightly different, but all are amazing.
This book is fantastically creative, well-written, and gets right to the core of the fears and fascinations of childhood. Each chapter of the book was so interesting. I love the world that Dahl creates. It's so easy to get sucked right in.
In typical Dahl fashion, it can be quite a ridiculous, violent, and odd journey at times. Very different from much of modern children's literature, but still fantastic in its own right.
This is one of my favorite books by Dahl along with James and the Giant Peach, The BFG, and The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.

The opening of this story reminds me of the beginning of Nine Princes in Amber, because the Protagonist awakens, lacking memory of who he is, in a forest with light hurting his eyes.
He has no wallet or I.D., he's bruised up severely, and his neck hurts a lot. After some not very clear-headed investigation, he finds out where he is at least, and starts to remember what put him in his current condition.
In the quest to work out who he is, how he got where he is and why he can't contact anyone outside of a small Idaho town, a lot of confusing details work into the story to keep the brain working to make sense of what's going on. Clues to some sort of deception are constant and increase throughout.
There are some edge of your seat action scenes and it's a pretty wild ride. Near the end, just when I was getting worried that loose ends might not be explained until the sequels, things actually fall into place and the reader finally learns what it's all been about. The story kept me reading and left me breathless at times.
If you like mysteries and thrillers, this is recommended. Personally I need a rest!
