really liked it
Read in January, 2012

I'm not sure why I chose to read this book.

I'm not obsessed with Where The Wild Things Are, like many people are. I didn't see the movie, and I probably only read the book once or twice as a kid. But I had bought this book for somebody who does love the original and, when I saw another copy on the shelf at my library, I thought I would give it a try.

If I were rating it based only on my personal enjoyment, I would probably give this book a 3. It was too surrealistic and fantastical for my taste. I wanted more characters and less descriptions of the scenery. But that's not the book's fault. It's probably mine for being so boring, in fact.

The writing was good, and I liked the way Max's character was developed. So I'll give this book a 4, and maybe take another look at Where The Wild Things are.
