Summary:

Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.

    A wonderful narration and terrific story. Unfortunately, this is a much better experience reading the actual book as the book is somewhat dependent on the visual pictures contained throughout it. This would make a great story to read along with the actual book. I have to say, just hearing the story and not looking at the book would be an injustice to the title and author.
