The Wild Things
I wish I could remember why; all I know is, that when I worked in a book store, I talked customers out of buying his books. Then the Dave Egg I first read Where the Wild Things Are when I was 7 years old, and instantly loos in love with the bad little boy and the lod, scary monsters. I enjoyed Where the Wild Things are as a child, but think this is a nice fggers version of Sendak’s amazing book. I don’t mind your autobiographical stuff and this, I sense, is part of what this is and I’ve not read the Sendak book upon which The Wild Things is based I don’t think – or maybe I have but it left no impression, clearlyso it’s not that I have any particular allegiance to the original.

It builds on somethings that the film had to gloss over, and it leaves some of the vi I love the film. They really know how to get to us. May 06, Kirstie rated it really liked it. What you wind up with, though, is less t I don’t think that this book really knew where it wanted to go or what it wanted to do. View all 4 comments. He died in Throughout the novel, though, there seems to be a sort of battle between emotion and logic, as Max attempts to control the beasts, and even at times, escape them.
I guess that means I hope we’ll all be okay. The book made Max bigger than life; he got reasons for being bad–distant mother, father gone and a sister who is growing up and away from her baby brother.
It’s a story of Max, an eight year old, who lives in a world of his own where everything around him is only there for him to enjoy and experience as an adventure. At the end of the day it’s a story about ‘a boy, pretending to be a wolf, pretending to be a king’.
They know who can gnaw on whom. As I’ve told anyone who will listen, it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen that reminded me of how wonderful and–more importantly–how terrible being a child is. But it just didn’t have that extra “breath of life” that Dave Eggers is capable of. 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.
Just leave things alone, I thought. One of the students is a little like Max but honestly it’s difficult to tell if Max really has a disability or if he is just a more extreme melodramatic child. But Max sees a part of himself in each of them, I believe, and he’s not comfortable. And they don’t know exactly what to do with Max. In short, yes he could.
Aug 17, Mallory rated it it was ok. There are others, but those are the ones that really stood out to me. The Wild Things is very well written. In Eggers’s version, one can easily see how each of these oversized animal creatures are aspects of himself and that the one he bonds most with initially terrifies him with his temper and his justification of committing acts Max feels are evil. Anyhow, what I saw in the film dismayed me quite a bit because I work with children and some of the behavioral issues I see both in regular ed.
The white gumdrop sun broke the horizon and the birds began to gossip from the trees. Jul 09, Megan Baxter rated it liked it. All Auction Buy it now. Along with that, the Wild Things are more dysfunctional here, too.
Egyers the novel mosntruos that Eggers creates, we see that Max is a little depressed about his own behavior and that the behavior and choices of others from his parents separating to his older sister deciding she’s too cool to hang with him, to the science elementary teacher that tells him that the sun is going to burn out and die one day. One of the vampires bit the tallest building but his fangs broke off.
Now here was Max, a total brat, whom I hated. Like, yes, I get that Carol is pretty much Max and that Bull is representative of his father or whatever but I just
