The Book of Hidden Things

Author: 
Francesco Dimitri
 
The Book of Hidden Things by Francesco Dimitri is a superb summer read. Dimitri, often referred to as the “Italian Neil Gaiman”, has written a suspense thriller that manages to keep one foot in the real world while dipping the other foot into a pool of wonder and fantasy.

Four friends, now grown and scattered about the world, return to their hometown once a year for their “appointment” together. For some, this is a welcome respite, for others a reminder of their inability to leave their old selves behind. When one of them does not show, a quest begins to find him and unravel the mystery.

This is a magical, fantastical tale of sacrifice and choices. It is also about the truths we face and the changes we must make in adulthood. The author takes this a step further by exploring families and friendship; those we construct and those we are born into.

Well-composed fiction, an affecting story, wrapped in an impressive fantasy adventure!
