Bastiano ha una grande passione: leggere. In un giorno di pioggia, inseguito dai bulli, si rifugia in una vecchia libreria dove trova un volume intitolato La storia infinita. Bastiano lo prende e ci si immerge, letteralmente: infatti, scopre che proprio lui non è solo spettatore delle meravigliose avventure che vi sono narrate, ma ne è anche protagonista, chiamato a salvare i destini del mondo incantato di Fantàsia…
"Uno dei romanzi più straordinari che siano apparsi in Europa dopo la guerra."
"Questo libro sarà per generazioni – per tutte le generazioni di lettori che verranno – una lettura d’obbligo… Una finestra aperta sul regno dei sogni, dell’immaginazione, della letteratura."
"La storia infinita può anche essere letta come una metafora della letteratura intesa come strumento per cambiare gli uomini e cioè il mondo."

One of my favorite books of all time; this one is definitely closest to my heart. I've certainly read it more than any other (Ender's Game being a close second). Which is interesting because it's almost nothing like any of my other favorites (besides maybe Watership Down). Maybe it's because it's th Leggi tutto
Read this to my daughter recently. A very mixed bag. First off I should say that although the book was written in 1979 it reads as though it were written in 1939. The translator has consistently reached for the most complicated/high falutin' word available and as a result the child's book ends up unr Leggi tutto
Die Unendliche Geschichte = The Never Ending Story, Michael Ende The Neverending Story is a fantasy novel by German writer Michael Ende, first published in 1979. An English translation, by Ralph Manheim, was first published in 1983. The novel was later adapted into several films. The book centers on Leggi tutto
Although I have read this book more than twenty times, I have, until now, never actually written a longer and more involved review for Michael Ende's utterly amazing The Neverending Story (I have also never read it in English). I first read it in German in the early 80s, I believe, and I have reread Leggi tutto
Este libro lo llevo en lo más profundo de mi corazón. Existen todo tipo de libros: Los que nos hacen reír, los que nos asustan, los que nos sorprenden, los que nos hacen llorar, los que terminamos odiando y existen libros que nos tocan el alma y nos cambian la vida. La particularidad, es que cada le Leggi tutto
Re-Read, 4/10/20: After yet another re-read, I've come to a simple conclusion: I decided to write fiction because I loved this story so much. I figured it out as a kid when I saw this movie for the first time. So, why is that? Because every work of fiction is a collaboration between the writer and the Leggi tutto
(долу и на български, но по-прибрано ;) The first--and still most luminous--story that urged me to stop running away from my life into books and start weaving books back into my life. If this sounds too abstract, consider the Human Library : a child of The Neverending Story , a sister of Moonchild. This Leggi tutto
I loved most of what I read, yet I’m stopping on page 352; I just can’t continue. And you know, I’m not entirely sure why I can’t continue -– I just know that I can’t . But I have a theory. Having loved the movie version of this in my youth, the whole story is etched into the part of my psyche that de Leggi tutto
I liked the movie better than the book. I do love how all the chapters started with the alphabet! Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
I didn't read this as a kid, I read it for the first time at 27. It has a lot of tropes I don't care for, but they were done really well. I thought the first half was really whimsical and sweet, but I really struggled through the second half. Overall, it wasn't the story for me, but I think I would
