Nobody's Boy

Nobody's Boy - Hector Malot Before the age of 10, this was my favorite book of all times. I read it about twenty times between the ages of 9 and 12, or something like that, and I cried every single damned time at it. It's impossible how much feeling I got from that book!

Remi was and I think he still is the perfect child character in a book! And Vitalis was such a good man.. When he died, I thought I was going to die. So. Not. Fair. I wanted to go around the world and have three dogs and a monkey with me, to keep me company; and I longed to give shows on unknown streets in big cities, so people could see me perform my roles in a perfect manner!

I think this is the only book with animal "characters" that I really liked. I usually find them either extremely boring, extremely useless or extremely annoying. But Joli-Coeur is lovely!

But then again, I was 10.. I keep this book in my heart, for it really is a wonderful story!
