Fantasy story along the lines of Narnia, but with more action taking place on earth (so far). Well-written, engaging story about Henry and the cupboards he finds in his room while staying with his uncle and aunt. ( )

I'm a big N.D. Wilson fan. I've loved Ashtown Burials so far and Leepike Ridge was enjoyable. 100 Cupboards was enjoyable and held my interest enough that I plan on continuing in the series, but I felt a little let down when comparing to Wilson's other work.
For one, the book was a bit meandering. It felt like it took most of the book trying to establish the setting and reminding you that there is probably more to the story than you knew but that it's not going to tell you yet. At times the descriptions were confusing and abrupt changes were hard to follow. Completely understanding that this is fantasy, the fantastical elements were not always convincing/believable.
Those criticisms aside, it ended on an interesting note and I was still entertained along the way. I plan on continuing to the next book and here's to hoping it improves. ( )

Good. Too dark for me and mine. But well written and quite interesting.

Book 1 in the '100 Cupboards Trilogy': This is another story that eventually leads to 'we aren't in Kansas anymore'! It starts off slow, but midway through the book, it picks up steam and never slacks. There are elements of the 2006 movie, 'The Lake House' and of the books: 'Indian In The Cupboard', 'A Wrinkle in Time' and 'Narnia' -- where the ordinary crosses over to the magical. This is a story of inter-dimensional travel and of alternate realities akin to Narnia, only that they don't begin in a closet, but in 100 Cupboards. Onwards to Books 2 & 3. ( )

Book description
Henry bliver vækket af en sær bankelyd fra væggen over hans seng. Et øjeblik efter falder små stykker puds ned over ham, og to runde greb kommer til syne. Det ene af dem drejer langsomt rundt. Henry er netop flyttet ind på loftsværelset hos sin onkel, tante og tre kusiner langt ude på landet i Kansas. Væggen ved hans seng vender ud mod enorme marker – rent faktisk burde der ikke være noget som helst på den anden side. Men da han og kusine Henrietta går i gang med at pille mere puds ned, finder de en masse små låger. Og de fører ikke ud til markerne. Gennem en af dem kan man høre silende regn og vindens susen i træerne. Og gennem en anden kan de se et oplyst rum og en mand, der fordeler post. Bag en tredje låge fornemmer Henry en sær og lurende ondskab, der bare venter på at blive sat fri. Pludselig dumper der et brev ind til ham…

100 Cupboards is the first book of a new fantasy adventure, written in the best world-hopping tradition and reinvented in N. D. Wilson’s inimitable style.
