The Stolen Child


1/2 Star

So there is apparently an old Irish legend about changelings who abduct small children and replace them with their own kind. This awful book is based on that legend. It tries to be interesting by telling the story of both the changeling now living with people and the young boy now living with changelings. My problem with this book is there is no suspense, no mystery, no antagonist, no excitement–nothing to keep your interest. Just a boring narrative (two, actually, for double the bore) with piles and piles of minutiae.
