    Ever read a book which just stays with you and you think about from time to time This is that sort of book for me I read this book when it first came out, and was fascinated by the premise A young boy, Henry Day, runs away from home and is stolen by changelings The changelings i.e fairies hobgoblins were once human children themselves They were stolen then forced to live in the wild in a family like pack until they can find a human child and switch places with them The Changelings chan Ever read a book which just stays with you and you think about from time to time This is that sort of book for me I read this book when it first came out, and was fascinated by the premise A young boy, Henry Day, runs away from home and is stolen by changelings The changelings i.e fairies hobgoblins were once human children themselves They were stolen then forced to live in the wild in a family like pack until they can find a human child and switch places with them The Changelings change Henry s name to Aniday as one of their own takes Henry s place with his human family Aniday is now forever a child, who grows mentally but struggles to remember his family and what it was like to be human He m...

    I am a big fan of literature that retell or reconfigure old myths and fairy tales especially if the author can bring it into a modern setting and so I really liked the concept of The Stolen Child, a modern adaptation of the changling myth in which the fairies steal away a human child and replace it with one of their own With all this to its credit, I should have enjoyed this bookthan I did.The Stolen Child is based on the poem by Yeats where th...

    This is a strange, sad and beautiful novel inspired by W.B Yeats poem The Stolen Child 1889 about chageling faeries I vaguely remember reading about the Irish myths when I was younger Interestingly, the novel touches on rational explanations for changelings failure to thrive, physical deformities, or mental illness in children But Donohue s novel is about loneliness, the search for identity and belonging There are two narrators telling two intertwined stories one adult trying to re This is a strange, sad and beautiful novel inspired by W....

    The Stolen Child, which takes its name and inspiration from the Yeats poem, tells the story of two characters Aniday is a human child who is stolen by changelings and lives in their world, and Henry Day is the changeling who takes his place and grows up in the real world Both spend the next few decades struggling with their identities, as neither is at peace with the change.The format is interesting every other chapter flips between the two narrators Both speak in the first person, but it is The Stolen Child, which takes its name and inspiration from the Yeats poem, tells the story of two characters Aniday is a human child who is stolen by changelings and lives in their world, and Henry Day is the changeling who takes his place and grows up in the real world Both spend the next few decades struggling with their identities, as neither is at peace with the change.The format is interesting every other chapter flips between the two narrators Both speak in the first person, but it is easy to grasp whose story is being told at the moment In case there is any confusion, Aniday s side always has a small graphic of a forest at the beginning of the chapter.Although I finished reading this about a month ago, it took me a long time to decide how I felt about it .com promoted the hell out of it supposedly on its merits...

    I really liked the premise fairies steal forlorn, lonely children and replace them with themselves The stolen children don t die, they become fairies who then have to wait hundreds of years to repeat the process Every other chapter is told by the stolen child and then his replacement over many years of their lives All in all I enjoyed this but it was a bit of a slow mover, took me a couple of weeks to finish This is the author s debut so I would be willing to readof his work as he hon I really liked the premise fairies steal forlorn, lonely children and...
