I found out it was about a boy named Hugo Cabret he was alone and wanted so badly to fix this machine, the automaton, his father was working on. The reason is pretty heartfelt so I won't ruin it. He lives inside the walls of a train station taking care of the clocks like his uncle told him to. Problem is he hasn't seen his Uncle for months. I think he keeps doing it because he doesn't know what else to do. He steals parts of mechanical toys from a Toy store run by an old man. He is caught one day and this leads him to a world of discovery. With the help of Isabelle, the toy shop's goddaughter, Hugo will finally get some closure and something else he wasn't looking for but really needed.
I really liked the first half of this book and I absolutely loved the illustrations! There is one is particular:
Now with the characters of the movie... Hugo was played by Asa Butterfield who I could have sworn was the kid who played Let Me In because they looked so much alike but it's not. I loved this kid's eyes. They were piercing into my soul and made me feel so bad for him and his situation. You know he was Bruno in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas? And I now found out there was going to be an Ender's Game movie when I looked him up which he'll be in. I've never wanted to read that book but my brother would be quite interested so there's that.
