What I thought:
Well, I did find it quite a scary book in parts, unusually scary, especially as it is publicised as this amazingly awesome book and little boys in years gone by were all totally (almost spelt totoro...mmm) obsessed with it.. but I suppose, they wanted adventure, action and that jazz as we jazz folk say.
I liked it, yes, it's an amazing story, imaging writing something that became a classic... gosh, that would be a dream come true to so many writers these days... can you imagine writing a novel, either never publishing it or it not doing fantastically when you're alive, then it becomes this massive phenomenon after your death.... imagine that.
Tragic, but it makes me smile for some reason.
Books and writing do that to me.
I liked it, but it was a surprise.
Keep Reading and Writing... and reviewing your work!
