    One thought on “The Door to Lost Pages

    1. Mike on said:

      Claude Lalumiere s The Door to Lost Pages is a short novella of interwoven stories patched together to form a fascinating and enthralling pastiche that orbits in and around a bookshop known as Lost Pages It offers brief snippets of the worlds and mythologies housed in the mysterious bookshop and gives readers a tiny taste of the lives and souls of the people who have encountered its book lined, dog filled interior The novella doesn t really offer a standard plot structure, though there is an ove [...]

      Lost Pages wasn t the only bookshop I frequented, but the books I found on its shelves were unique I never saw any of these books anywhere else Bizarre Bestiaries Dictionaries of dead, obscure languages Maps to lands that may never have been Essays on religions with unfamiliar names Obscure mythologies Accounts of wars no history teacher had ever mentioned Such were the wares of the bookshop that fed my teenage dreams Claude Lalumiere s The Door to Lost Pages is a strange meta exercise in writin [...]

      First off I want to thank the publisher ChiZine Publications for letting me read this over at Netgalley.Yamesh Lot is the dark God Ruler of dreams The Lost Pages the bookstore.The story evolves around a bookstore called Lost Pages What dreams are nightmares Lucas the book store owner sees hallucinations just like Aydee who comes from a drug addiction home Mother father showed no love for her She finds her way to an alley way Other characters come along with the same visions of Yamesh Lot They ha [...]

      First published in April 2011, Claude Lalumi re s novella The Door To Lost Pages was constructed and complied from a sprinkling of previously published segments, which once woven together, became the lucid and mesmerising offering of surreal and highly imaginative fiction that is this dreamlike tapestry of interconnecting stories.DLS Synopsis After tolerating her drug addicted parents for ten the first ten years of her life, Aydee finally decides to run away from home The cold concrete of the st [...]

      I have to say I was disappointed On NetGalley it said that it was 200 pages in paperback but my e reader said 95 Did I get the entire story or part of it Because to me it felt like this was unfinished There was no time to connect with characters or even understand Whatever this author was trying to get at he didn t get there The writing wasn t that great either The beginning grabbed me and had my attention but the farther I got into the story the worse it got Especially the last chapter It looke [...]

      4 StarsI enjoyed this novella than I thought I would It is a book of stories linked through an old book shop, The Lost Pages The themes in each of the stories is quite apparent even though none of them have any real plot or much world building or character development They are however filled with magical prose and imagery They are what dreams and nightmares may be This whole novel is reminiscent of a Catherine Valente novel, almost like an adult fairy tale It is also probably the closest thing [...]

      According to an old folktale, nightmares once covered the night sky, blotting out the stars When those creatures of darkness invaded our dreams the night sky opened up, and the stars reveal themselves.The door to Lost Pages un libro strano, affascinante che ti trascina tra le sue righe senza darti la possibilit di sfuggirne Sembra una raccolta di brevi racconti tutti collegati da un unico argomento.In realt racconta la storia di Aydee una ragazzina di dieci anni che fugge dalla casa dove ha abit [...]

      In truth I barely know where to start with this review so bare with me.The Door to Lost Pages is a series of short stories that all revolve around the bookstore Lost Pages and the dark god Yamish Lot These have apparently been published separately before and are now in one novel I found this is to be a really cool idea and was really looking forward to seeing what fantastical world Lalumiere had created They are surprisingly complex short stories and from the description of the novel I wasn t qu [...]

    9. Chris Gloom on said:

      The world building in the beginning of this book is insufferable and the prose is narcissistic to the point of being ridiculous but there are good moments in here and the further in you go the rewarding the experience The silly and long winded art prose gets in the way of the interesting ideas and locales here Many of the character s motivations seem abstract or nonsensical, it s hardest to empathize with the misanthropes among them and their unrealistically scathing hatred for the world around [...]

    10. Sophie on said:

      The Door to Lost pages is a collection of connected short stories, all written with a mix of the weird, sci fi, bizarre, horror and fantasy genres There are a handful of experiments with meta fiction as well Many of the stories left me with a kind of sharp heartache, a bittersweet hope that the fanciful dreamy parts of the novel are real and that the indications of a grim reality are the only fiction the author intended.The book pulled me in easily The prose is very simple and kind of alluring I [...]

      I ll never look at a rooster the same way again D Green, blue and brown.Ignore that There are no pastoral scenes here, and no mentions of roosters at all There s magic, all sorts, and self discovery, all sorts No shortage of gasp inducing scenes and sentences I love the lioness Rawr I cheered when she swiped at that couple and then shuddered when she did than swipe There s this girl One moment, she s a starving and abused little waif The next, she s a ward of the lioness Goddess of Lost Childre [...]

      I was drawn to The Door to Lost Pages because among other things it sounded like a wonderful bookstore, one you d like to find on a little side street and explore The chapters in the book are really short stories that are loosely strung together with Aydee and the store as common elements Bestial Acts introduces Aydee as a 10 year old leaving home and encountering supernatural beings that in turn give her comfort and lead her to the store The other chapters have different main focuses, though t [...]

      I chose this book for a Friday the 13th promotional ChiZine Publications was doing earlier in the year, and decided to read it since the description alone seemed to parallel two other series I ve been working through Cornelia Funke s Inkheart trilogy and Stephen King s The Dark Tower series The Door to Lost Pages is a surrealist book with a very loosely connected short story narrative, drawing together characters who have encountered the mysterious multiversal bookstore known as Lost Pages, whic [...]

    14. Heidi Gonzalez on said:

      Very strange and hard to follow I m not sure I can say I actually liked this book It is a series of short stories that all seemed to blend together This was quite disappointing since the first few stories were actually quite good and related to the quirky bookstore Lost Pages which I was much interested in than some of the other stories Not all of the stories were horrible though but the later ones do come with a caution since many of them were very sexual and erotic but not over the top There [...]

      Lost Pages is a bookstore unlike any other Inside are books that can be found no where else, histories from alternate Earths and alternate worlds, encyclopedias of the impossible, and tomes presenting varied versions of reality These books are written in a multitude of languages, some forgotten, some not even human.Many people find their way to Lost Pages, such as Aydee a young girl who abandoned her neglectful parents and Lucas who came to run the story after seeking sought solace in the strang [...]

      Wanting to explore lesser known fantasy authors, I found this book at my local library The blurb intrigued me enough to think it might be worth investing a small fraction of my currently very available time into I decided to search it on and the first thing that caught my eye was the list books that no one should read ha trying not to be too put off by that I borrowed it anyway I managed to go through it in one sitting but only just managed to finish Lalumiere what a nice name keeps you wanting [...]

      Strange book The Door to Lost Pages is a handful of previously published stories one of which I recognized because I had read it in Interzone Based on that story I would have never bought this one, but it was a unexpected gift Since it is just a very small booklet, it was an extremely quick read despite 200 pages and I finished it against my better judgement and inner resentment a quarter of the way into it As a mass market paperback with small print this would come in under 30 pages.What good i [...]

    18. Megan11 on said:

      A strange book The back cover explains nothing of what the book is actually about, though I suppose that makes the book that much interesting I certainly wasn t expecting the sex scenes I haven t read anything by Claude Lalumi re before , personally I feel like they were done tastefully, even though nothing was left out so to speak I m not sure how I feel about this book I enjoyed it, but I can t place why.

    19. Amber Polo on said:

      I want to read Clarence and Charlie s Old World Encyclopedia I want to visit Lost Pages, meet the dogs, and have a latte at the Small Easy, Books and dogs with a lion thrown in were just my style Claude Lalumiere s linked stories made me certain he s a victim of sleepless nights I loved the bookstore, but don t want to live in his nightmares.

    20. Amy on said:

      I m not sure this belongs on my linked stories shelf, but seeing as it s a bunch of unpublished short stuff that was then connected, in a sense, and published all in one, that s where I m shelving it so sue me P

      Me Reading about hard cocks and hot sex and sometimes nightmarish sex.Thinking But what about the books When do I get to go back to that awesomely mysterious shop crammed with dogs and old books about older gods and unknown worlds Erotica is totally lost on me.

      Una librer a perdida, de p ginas perdidas para gente perdida A ratos demasiado alucin gena, a otros ratos demasiado sexoso, pero siempre buen simo AME la mitolog a alrededor de aquella librer a perdida.

    23. Karen Heuler on said:

      Well worth reading I liked the magical mythical aspect of the stories, and I thought the sexual turn was surprising and made sense Fairy tales, journeys there are often underlying messages about sex as the lure and the danger, and it fit this story perfectly.

    24. Eric on said:

      Lovely set of short stories revolving around a fantastical book store.

      A series of interwoven stories of old gods and lost and found children Delightful.

    26. Amit on said:

      Oh please This book gave me nightmare not really But seriously The worst book I have ever read in my life No I have no desire to write a long review about this It disgusted my choice At first it was quite good or say promissing but then it seems as if the story now truly lost in itself Didn t get the Continuance of the story at all those dialouge engaged with erotic content make me sick to my mind1 out of 5

      I got an ebook of this book through NetGalley dot com This was an interesting collection of short stories all based around a bookstore called Lost Pages The stories are some what ambiguous and quite varied as far as their content goes They were an okay read, but the writing style wasn t spectacular and the stories were all a bit vauge.The book starts with a intro that s nothing special It s followed by a prologue and six additional stories all featuring a girl named Aydee and a bookstore called [...]

      It s not very often that I give a 5 star rating Even if I think that the book was great, written well and kept me reading the whole night it ll probably still get a 4 stars from me For a book to get a 5 stars from me, it has to touch me, it has to be something I ll read over and over, it s something that I ll want to convert world for The Door to Lost Pages is one of those books for me.Now let me add a word of warning here This little read isn t for everyone and it has its problems but I love it [...]
