One of my favorite all time books, The Thief of Always is a chilling story of Harvey, a bored young boy who opts to travel to a land where everyday is a holiday, every meal is a feast, and life is dedicated to fun. All of this does not come without a grave cost. The book is indeed written for a young adult reader, but the themes are very dark, and adults will enjoy reading just as much if not more.

Once again, I was too hasty in my book requests. I didn't realize that this was written for kids so I was very very disappointed and put this book down after 50 pages or so.

A children's book written by Clive Barker about a forgotten child who fights through supernatural temptation to save himself. Very dark themes. The story harkens back to a time before children's stories had airbrushed characters and plot twists with protective bumpers. Think Coraline, but with more sinister undertones. Enjoy!
