Overview: The Iron Giant

'The Iron Giant' - written by Ted Hughes and published by Yearling is reckoned by many as one of the greatest of modern day fairy tales and is a brilliant and riveting book for all adolescents as well as the grownups. First published in 1968 this classic by Hughes is a powerful tribute to global and universal peace, and tells of so gripping a story that if one starts reading it aloud, others will stop to listen to it.

Hardly any other book by Hughes is more compelling than this one. The unforgettable story begins with a mysterious creature stalking the land and eating barbwires, tractors and ploughs and thus mystifying and terrifying the farmers. It is an iron giant, glimpses of which are seen during the night. The giant is taller than a house with glowing headlight eyes and has an insatiable hunger for metal which makes it important to stop it at any cost. There is a young boy named Hogarth - the only one who is brave enough and capable of leading the giant to a safe home and also the only one with the knowledge of where to turn when a space bat as big as the continent of Australia comes to devour everything that it can find on earth. At a time when the earth really needs a hero, it is Hogarth who turns into one and becomes the saviour.

In this amiable story of a huge metal robot that first infuriates people by devouring all metal but later turns out to be extremely useful when a space-bat-angel-dragon attacks the earth and demands a tribute of all animate matter on the planet for consumption. Hogarth makes the iron giant agree to battle the monster which then vanquishes the angel dragon and determines that the creature was indeed peaceful and was attracted to earth only by the violence of mankind. By the end of the story the bat dragon agrees to return to space and the calming effect of its "music of the spheres" turns earth into a peaceful place.

     A Nice book for Kids 17 May, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Genre: Action, Adventure

    For: Family, Kids

    Brief: An innocent alien robot falls into the earth, befriends a little kid. The giant’s only food is iron, and thus the kid helps him to get all kinds from iron. And there is one paranoid government agent, who wants to destroy him. The Iron Giant has been regarded as a threat to the government, but the end says something else.

    Comment (in short): Since it is a slow read, people might find it boring, but if stayed for first few pages, they will love the whole book.
