The Neverending story is one of those films that truly made a major difference to my childhood.

The Neverending story is one of those films that truly made a major difference to my childhood I will say Ende managed to reach a satisfying conclusion in the end, albeit by that point in the story I really didn't care whether Bastian returned to the human world or not since I'd long since really been bothered about him. Indeed Bastian's redemption is far quicker than his corruption, which is a shame since the redemption was beginning to be interesting and finally introduced back some element of danger since it was not certain that Bastian would actually make it back to the human world.

NO SPOILERS!!! My husband first read this book in German, while living in Germany. He had seen the movie when he was little and thought the book might be as entertaining. Well not only was it entertaining, but it was so much better than the movie. He loved the book so much that he bought an English version for me and told me that I had to read it. This book is unlike anything else I've ever read, its a story within a story. The magical world that Michael Ende creates is captivating. The characters are well thought out, and it's hard not to fall in love with them. We are now reading this to our little children and they are enjoying it just as much as we did. I highly recommend reading this story, by yourself, or to your children.

First of all, please don’t judge this book on its movies. The book is split into two movies. While I liked the first movie (which was close to the book), I thought the second movie (which wasn’t close at all) was a bit of a joke. I also felt like Bastian in the movie was almost useless, and I wanted a better conclusion.

The book is a completely different matter. Never before have I cared so much about a character in a book. Bastian is a self-conscious, unpopular kid who makes up stories all the time and wants nothing more than to escape the humdrum of life to live in fantasy. I was exactly the same as a kid, and I read every fantasy book I could get my hands on. When I couldn’t find the story I wanted, I made it up. Sometimes, I wanted to hug Bastian, and sometimes I wanted to smack his stupid face, because he could be such an idiot, but he just wanted to help everyone.

My favorite part, and the one that made me care about him, was when Bastian said that he didn’t like books that tried to convince him that it was real; he wanted pure fantasy. Life was full of humdrum. Nobody understood why I never read anything but fantasy, and the less believable, the more I wanted to get lost in it. And that is exactly what this book gave me. It is absolutely, utter fantasy. It’s a journey.

I liked Atreyu as well, as he is consistently brave and heroic, yet mortal, throughout. There wasn’t a single character or creature that I thought was unnecessary or underplayed. I disliked a number of them, but they made the story better. The writing was excellent, especially for a book translated from German. The scenes were well-done.

The narrator did this book justice. Except for Atreyu and Bastian, I could always tell everyone apart. Again, there were voices I didn’t like, but that was because of the characters/creatures themselves. He even did the rhyming, poetry, and singing better than I’ve ever heard from an audiobook. Fortunately, there was no music in the background. There were some times when the characters were whispering when I had to sit there with my thumb on the volume rocker, turning it up and down, but the story was just too good to let that bother me.

Overall, in the top ten books I’ve ever read in my entire life. It doesn’t matter if this book is meant for children, because it reminds me of the utter freedom I felt when I was a child and discovered a masterpiece of fantasy.

This is such a weird book. So far beyond the movie. The movie ends maybe a third of the way into the book, and then the book just gets super weird and meanders through some possibly unnecessary terrain. It's trippy and vaguely psychedelic. It's an interesting look at loneliness, and at jealousy and ego and the various negative sides to personality. And it both praises and critiques creativity and imagination (the dark side of which is suspiciously missing from the film version). There's a certain amount of philosophy and metaphor that can be drawn from this, if you're looking for it.

The story is fantastic and even though its vocabulary and the narrative is truly intended for older kids my 6 year old daughter asks me to read it to her every night. I consider this a must read book for everyone.
About this edition. Priced under what a medium latte goes for these days, this is a very affordable edition so I can't complain. It's light and the cover has a nice texture to it. However, the low price comes at the cost of the dual color printing of the original edition (as the story unfolds in both the real world and Fantastica, the original had green letters for one world and reddish letters for the other world, so having all black letters takes a bit away from the atmosphere). Ultimately there is no real harm done and black lettering may be better for some eyes; but if the colored printing is important for you, look at another edition.

Reading this with my kids. It is kind of philosophical for the little ones but they can follow because they loved the movies . Good to share this which i loved myself when i was young with my children. I think it is important to expose kids to higher reading levels to challenge and expand their boundaries. Beautifully written.

I read this book in high school, but it was a newer edition that didn't have colored text. It was a fantastic book then, but reading this first edition was an absolute joy. It makes the book much more dynamic and easier on the eyes when it switches between reality and fantasy. Additionally, the illustrations for the first letter of each chapter are amazingly detailed and beautiful (better than the cover art, too). Don't judge this edition by its cover, just read it.

Now, as far as the actual book as it is to read...you probably already know the basic story from the first couple of movies. I'm happy to say that, as per usual, the book is MUCH better than the movie. You even get more story than what you can find from those movies, which makes this book even better!

Nothing personal
Spoiler alert, the book does have an ending...
This was one of my favourite books as a kid, and I re-read it to my son recently. Still a very colourful book with a few unexpected twists along the way. Definitely something different - my son was quite shocked at the actions of the protagonist at points, and came away questioning "who is the hero?" , so it really made him think about how stories are told. It's a good book with an interesting message, even if some plot points seem to go off randomly (and sometimes unfulfillingly).
