The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Monday, May 28, 2012 4:28 PM Posted by Savanah Jeanne

 Well it’s been a long time coming….my first review in a long, long, LOONNNGGGGG time. But it’s here! And with things getting settled (once again) I intend on many more to come.  I’m really excited about this book because it’s a new movie.  Personally I really like to read the book before watching the movie. Only because I like to compare and contrast details;  I find details in a book to be important because I’m better able to see the story in my head (sort of like watching a movie in my head…a really, really long movie :] ).  Some like to watch the movie first. Sometimes I like to watch the movie, but either way, for this book I’ve decided to read the book first. 

(Summery)

Plot:
4 stars:
 I really enjoyed following Hugo around on his mini adventures. The story starts with Hugo stealing a little wind-up mouse from a toy store. For a few chapters after that we see what happened to Hugo to get him to the toy story and then the story fast forwards back to where we left off at the beginning.
 Hugo and his father had found a wonderful machine that was in the shape of a man writing. The machine was found by the two clockmakers, sadly in a rusty and broken state. Making the best of it however, father and son begin working on it to bring it back to its full glory, hoping to finally see what the automan is supposed to write.
Unfortunately, before they could finish their long hard work, Hugo’s father dies in a tragic accident at work, leaving Hugo to fix the machine by himself.
Unsure of his ability to match his father’s talent at gears, Hugo clings to the only clue to fixing the mysterious man, his father’s notebook. 

Characters:
5 stars:
The characters were so enjoyable to learn about. They were very mysterious and every time I thought i figured one of them out they ended up surprising me. My favorite character to learn about were George Melies. His character is just so interesting. His life is so dramatic, mysterious and historic like it's hard not to get wrapped up in it. 


Family Friendly:
5 stars:
I would feel absolutely safe about reading this with my younger siblings. The most suspenseful piece in this book is young Hugo being chased my a cop and being put in jail. Something to take note of is that Hugo's uncle is a alcoholic and abandons Hugo and at the end of the story is found dead because he drowned. 


I also watched the movie and LOVED it! I encourage all to watch it. I had just as much fun watching it as I did reading it.













Let me know what you think? Have you read the book? Watched the movie? Read a book that reminds you of The Invention of Hugo Cabret?
