Drawing a treasured notebook a stolen key a mechanical man and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate tender and spellbinding mystery If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from when you go to sleep at night just look around This is where they are made I might be part of the minority who didn't really enjoy this book and this breaks my heart because it looks truly gorgeous The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a story told with dozens of stunning illustrations and few words Unfortunately I didn't find the story itself very interesting This book contains one of my most hated tropes the secret which has no reason to exist and still it's kept just to keep the story going I also found the characters a little underdeveloped ad honestly I didn't grow attached to Hugo at all This might be one of those cases in which the movie is better than the book for me but only for the steampunk feel because for the rest I didn't like that one either So overall the three stars are an average between the stunning illustrations and the plot that for me was pretty much lacking I am still glad I purchased this book because it looks amazing but i don't see myself re reading it
