Eggers, whom I love, co-wrote the screenplay and then re-adapted the movie for this novel. One of the vampires bit the tallest building but his fangs broke off.

After years of therapy I realize I was a normal kid with a messed up family. Item location see all. He had to think and he could only think while biking or building things, and he wanted to be biking, to think with the blood loudly filling his head. The author had a dreamlike idea but just couldn’t get the execution right, and I don’t really know if that was because it was tied to the movie or not. All these things are pretty heavy to a young boy or to anyone, really but the way that Max chooses to deal with them is dishonest to others and himself and his behavior really doesn’t do him any favors.

Dave Eggers co-wrote the movie version with Spike Jonze, and then he penned this novel based on their screenplay. Eggers flushes out Sendak’s monumental children’s book and also give depth to the movie that Spike Jonze made about the book and Eggers co-wrote. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but this makes me wan All I could think about while reading this book was my own childhood. Eggers has said he made some changes in the book from the movie.

I’m glad Max made the journey. Return to Book Page. There was always a power to this simplicity which captured the emotional life of a young boy perfectly. However, at the end, there is still a part of me which wonders if he really will change now that mom has forgiven him and given him cake. I appreciated the opportunity to live a little longer where The Wild Things are, but I didn’t need to. He threw me back and forth between an amazed joy and an exhausted boredom, sometimes in the same chapter.

So, knowing that, and knowing ahead of time that you’re against the concept of the novel or movie even existing—why in the world would you want to read it or see Well, here’s the thing. The overall tone of the book is a bit off, compared to the original book. Eggers took this to the next level, in a way similar to Earl Mac Rauch.

He sees things the others don’t. We all like the idea of saving egfers bit of cash, so when we found out how many good quality used books are out there – we just had to let you know!

Even more, how little we still understand as adults and simply act as the facsimiles that we think we’re supposed to. It monstruoe an expansion of the story in Eggers’ imagination, but it didn’t spark anything in my imagination.


Anyway… It was a good, engaging read. Jul 21, Anne rated it really liked it. Aug 17, Mallory rated it it was ok. No, it’s really two things: Het mooiste aan dit boek zijn de prachtige zinnen die me regelmatig weten te raken en die mooi genoeg zijn om te noteren. Of course, from the perspective of a child myself reading the much smaller original version of the story, I remember thinking how imagination was such an amazing and powerful thing.

A lot of accidents and mishaps happen when you do a lot of things at the speed of an excited child. I enjoyed Where the Wild Things are as a child, but think this is a nice grown-up version of Sendak’s amazing book.
