The Stolen Child

A quick few words about Keith Donahue's The Stolen Child, which I finished this week. It's a very orginal concept - 7-year-old Henry Day is kidnapped by hobgoblins and a changeling is put in his place. So in effect the two switch lives forever. The book is about both of their stories and their quests for identity. It's a pretty good book - there was something about it that I didn't really like but I couldn't put my finger on it. I think it's something to do with the writing style. Still good though, worth picking up if you're into this sort of thing.
