Le avventure del capitano Orso Blu, nato (forse) dalla schiuma di un'onda, in un mondo in cui tutto è possibile, tranne la noia: nel continente di Zamonia, dove l'intelligenza è una malattia contagiosa e le tempeste di sabbia sono quadrate, dove in ogni situazione idilliaca è in agguato un pericolo, dove abitano tutti quegli esseri solitamente banditi dalla vita d'ogni giorno. E dove il prof. dott. Abdul Noctambulotti può aprire una scatola di sardine con la sola forza del cervello. Un "fantasy" che fonde immaginazione straripante e ironia demenziale con profondità e raffinatezza di stile. Per lettori di tutte le età.

I spent the first 300 or so pages of this book trying to figure out whether it was a children's book for very advanced children or an adult book for readers who hadn't lost their sense of play and wonder. It's whimsically illustrated, audaciously imaginative, and has a distinked [sic] fascination wi Leggi tutto
Oh, My! Here goes the Zamonian shoplist of curiosities. Q: A bluebear has twenty-seven lives. I shall recount thirteen and a half of them in this book but keep quiet about the rest. (c) Q: A bear must have his secrets, after all; they make him seem attractive and mysterious. (c) Q: Winter is following aut Leggi tutto
Ehhh. If I would have been the editor on this book I would have cut out about, oh, 400 pages. And I would have asked if maybe, just maybe, we could work some STORY into the novel. Really, the book is no more than a catalog of happenstance. I did THIS, and then THIS happened, and after that I went to Leggi tutto
Such a fun read! Walter Moers' The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear in turn felt reminiscent of Gulliver's Travels, Don Quixote and even Patrick Rothfuss's Name of the Wind. Captain Bluebear's explorations of Zamonia allow Moers to build a world which is quirky, original and expansive. The fact that Leggi tutto
Wow! Dieses Märchen von Walter Moers wage ich bereits jetzt im Februar als eines meiner Lieblingsbücher 2015 zu bezeichnen. Das einzige, das mich irgendwie stört ist, dass es in meiner Kindheit noch nicht existierte. Ich bin nun seit 1 Jahr regelmäßig auf jeder längeren Autofahrt in diese wundervolle Leggi tutto
"Le tredici vite e mezzo del capitano Orso Blu" è il libro più esilarante che abbia mai letto, mi ha ricordato, per certi versi, "La guida galattica per autostoppisti", per l'humor estremo e surreale delle vicende narrate. Senza dubbio questo libro, di Moers, è un fantasy per ragazzi, quindi diffici Leggi tutto
What do you get when you put a Blue bear in one of the most wonderfully imaginative worlds I have ever encountered in Fiction? In the hands of a master story teller and illustrator like Walter Moers you get a zany and wacky adventure with all manner of creatures, both lovable and scary and a reading Leggi tutto
”We’ve got something for you,” said the other wave. “A name!”“Yes,” said the first wave, “ We're calling you Bluebear.”The Babbling Billows obviously didn’t have much in the way of imagination, but still, I’d never had a name before. We first meet Bluebear as a cub, where he is so tiny he fits in a Leggi tutto
Bluebear is everything he should be and so much more than I thought he would be. Between the cover and the title, hell even the synopsis, I was up the proverbial shit creek without a paddle when trying to explain to people what my current read was. “Is that a children’s book?” “Are you high?” After Leggi tutto
Indescribable, mad book, but fun. A blue bear tells of his bizarre adventures (half of his 27 lives) in a fantasy world of extraordinary creatures. Rescued and raised by mini pirates, taught to talk by Babbling Willows, navigator for a pterodactyl superhero etc etc. Interspersed with snippets from a Leggi tutto
