Tom Taylor's life was screwed from the word go. His father created the mega-popular Tommy Taylor boy-wizard fantasy novels. But dad modeled the fictional epic so closely to Tom that fans constantly compare him to his counterpart, turning him into a lame, Z-level celebrity. When a scandal hints that Tom might really be the boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a mysterious, deadly group that's secretly kept tabs on him all his life. Now, to protect his life and discover the truth behind his origins, Tom will travel the world, to all the places in world history where fictions have shaped reality."Tom Taylor has spent his entire life a prisoner of his father's literary legacy-- and the famous, fictional boy wizard, Tommy Taylor, whose name he shares. But now he's a prisoner of an entirely different kind. Framed for the murder of a houseful of famous authors by forces he's only beginning to comprehend, Tom finds himself behind bars in a foreign land. Prison walls may keep him inside, but they won't keep out his powerful enemies-- who want him as dead as his supposed victioms. Tom's about to discover that his father's escapist stories may be his only hope of escaping. But as the wall between fact and fiction becomed weaker, woe to those who find themselves in the way when it collapses. After all, not every story has a happy ending--" -- p. [4] of cover.… (mais)

With his miraculous escape from prison,, Tom Taylor has finally started to believe in his own magic. The doorknob that is a gateway between time and space is only the first part of the puzzle, along with the mysterioius map that he found in his father's study, and Tom must figure out what they can do to figure out who he really is. It looks like these objects are a way for Tom to visit the times in the past when the great books were written, but I'm not sure yet how these tie in to the whole story, since it doesn't seem like the series is just going to be a quest through literary history. His father is obviously one of the "great authors," but who knows what his final Tommy Taylor novel is going to reveal about Tom's true nature and his role as a member of a secret society who controls the world through literature. His impending return in the next book should be quite exciting! ( )

Just as good as volume 1... although I did not understand the bunny story at the end. Great graphics and good story. ( )

Better than volume 1, though I do find myself wondering which way the writers are going to take their subtext on imagination. Is imagination power and something to be preserved, or something to be quelled - because one thing is clear - the authors' take is definitely black or white - with no grey in sight. ( )

This was quite a treat.

As Tom Taylor continues surveying the Universe as he once knew it to be, it continues crashing around him. As he is wanted for multiple murder, he is also being desired by different creatures alive and dead, from his ordinary world as well as from fables and his vanished father.

And Mingus, the winged cat, is cute as a button.

All in all: exciting, making me long for the third collection of stories regarding...all of this. ( )

Tom, Savoy, and Lizzie escape from French prison Donostia; in their breakout (while Callender's people, after Tom, break in), the prison warden's children, Cosi and Leon, are killed. Tom, Lizzie, and Savoy use the magic doorknob to escape, but wind up in Nazi Germany, where they encounter Josef Goebbels. When they finally make it back to London, it's three months later.

"I understand your dilemma. It is frightening to think of the world as having no firm foundations. Frightening to meet one's maker. And to find him...unsatisfactory." (Frankenstein's Monster to Tom)

"Beliefs are collars to which leashes can be attached." (Goebbels to Savoy)

"Every story has a negative space, Mister Rabbit. Things it can't acknowledge. Truths it can imply, or flirt with, but never say out loud." (Miss Liza to Mr. Bun at Rose Tree Cottage) ( )

While spinning the fascinating tale of his reluctant hero’s odyssey, Carey delves deeply into how stories influence reality—most movingly here in the characters of an indulgent father and his two children, who may play at being Tommy Taylor’s wizard friends a little too avidly. A dark, thoughtful metafiction with all of literature as its canvas; like Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next, with teeth. Highly recommended

If you like Willingham's Fables and the way that an adventure story can explore story itself, The Unwritten continues to satisfy. Highly recommended.
