Quotes from The Wild Things. Eggers captures this perfectly. Even more, how little we still understand as adults and simply act as the facsimiles that we think we’re supposed to. Rather more angry at times and even more horrible and insecure in others. He hadn’t accounted for the fact that there might not be much of a resolution to the battle, and he hadn’t imagined what it would feel like when the war just sort of ended, without anyone admitting defeat and congratulating him for his bravery.

So many of us grew up reading them, and sometimes they’d be neat — for instance, the “Back to the Future” novelization by George Gipe has some interesting scenes not in the movie, and Earl Mac Rauch’s “novelizations” of his own scripts eggets Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai And I hope he’ll be okay.

So, knowing that, and knowing ahead of time that you’re against the concept of the novel or movie even existing—why in the world would you want to read it or see Well, here’s the thing.

That may be a little sensitive of me but Montsruos see so many kids who are rewarded for their poor choices.

I was surprised to realize that some categorize this as a children’s book — it’s a bit dark and psychological for that, I think. It builds on somethings that the film had to gloss over, and it leaves some of the visual poetry from the film out.

As you can imagine, this book is quite the emotional roller coaster. In one point he wonders if smashing his crush in the face with a snowball hard enough to make her cry will make her like him more despite deliberately setting out to annoy his sister, thus showing enough brains to know how to torment people To be fair despite the number of words devoted to negatively my complaints just took longer to explain The Wild Things is a good book, its a fast funny read, I just felt unsatisfied, perhaps because it sits awkwardly between movie novelization, adaption of a child’s book, making the target audience presumably the small band of movie-goers who like to read the exact thing they’ve seen and children’s book readers who want a longer version?

Some things keep bothering him, but asking for forgiveness can be very hard, even if he really wants to do so. Don’t we want all children to come through the jungle of childhood with these lessons learned?

All these things are pretty heavy to a young boy or to anyone, really but the way that Max chooses to deal with them is dishonest to others and himself and his behavior really doesn’t do him any favors. Max still finds himself on an island with the Wild Things.

He’s kinda selfish, and doesn’t realise that he hurts his family, friends Needed a book to listen to on the dark walk to and from work and chose this from the York Library collection because I remember it being a movie with an interesting poster, and because the idea of children and monsters interacting appeals to some crazy part of me.

It became my all time favorite book, and now, when a friend has a child, they receive a copy of the book. And where they were supposed to have ears they just had more mouths so they couldn’t listen Eggers flushes out Sendak’s monumental children’s book and also give depth to the movie that Spike Jonze made about the book and Eggers co-wrote.

In trying to be loved, he only pushes people away. Dec 30, Robert Day rated it really liked it. The writing was very fluent and pages fly by. So, the Wild Things.

They were these huge buildings and they could walk. And like its source material, The Wild Things gives way to much deeper ideas than those presented, and ones that resonate strongly with me.

They really know how to get to us. After a day of havoc, he runs away and ends up on an island populated by monsters. It adapts the story to present day and to a young adult audience. So many of us grew up reading them, and sometimes they’d be neat — for instance, the ” Dave Eggers knows just the right things to do to tap into the deepest wishes of our pop-culturally-conditioned hearts, placing emotion within the kinds of neat things we didn’t even knew we desired to see developed.


Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Cool thing about this book: One night, Max dons his wolf suit and wreaks havoc upon the house, shortly before running away and sailing out to the land where the wild things are. We all feel a little sad and disappointed when Max makes poor decisions and feel even worse about it when he realizes after the fact that what he did was wrong but couldn’t stop himself.

If you have happy memories of the kid book, I suggest you avoid the movie and Eggers’ book. I’m not in that camp.

The Wild Things by Dave Eggers

The Wild Things by Dave Eggers. It’s not the worst book I’ve ever read, but there’s not a lot that I find in it to recommend it to others to read. Ira might hear something open and hollow, like an empty, void-ish sound, the sound of a well with no bottom. He was warm, cave because he had on many layers, and partly because boys who are part wolf and part wind do not get cold. davw

Fortunately the afterword clarified that the book is essentially mondtruos novelization I have to start with a wee confession, this book made me realize I have an adaption problem. He’s hurt, he’s lonely. The vampires wanted to make the buildings into vampires so they flew in and attacked them. The first par I think I’d put this somewhere between three and four stars, actually.
