The Labyrinth of Dreaming Books
The Labyrinth of Dreaming Books | Walter Moers, Optimus Yarnspinner, John Brownjohn
18 posts | 27 read | 23 to read
It has been more than two hundred years since Bookholm was destroyed by a devastating fire, as told in Moers's The City of Dreaming Books. Hildegunst von Mythenmetz, hailed as Zamonia's greatest writer, is on vacation in Lindworm Castle when a disturbing message reaches him, and he must return to Bookholm to investigate a mystery. The magnificently rebuilt city has once again become a metropolis of storytelling and the book trade. Mythenmetz encounters old friends and new denizens of the city--and the shadowy "Invisible Theater." Astonishingly inventive, amusing, and engrossing, this is a captivating story from the wild imagination of Walter Moers.

It took me FOREVER to finish this one. I enjoyed the beginning very much as it gave a great update on the amazing Optimus Yarnspinner. The middle really slowed down and this is why it took me so long to finish. At one point there were several pages of recapping the first novel which felt unnecessary. But the ending was AMAZING and made it all worth it in the end. I hope for another adventure with Optimus Yarnspinner ❤️.

Sarah83 @rubyslippersreads do you know the series? 5y
rubyslippersreads @Sarah83 I saw one of them at the bookstore and was intrigued, but I haven't read them. 5y
Sarah83 @rubyslippersreads you should really start it. But start with 13 1/2 lives. I didn't like Rumo as much as Captain bluebear. 😂 5y
mellissimo @Sarah83 I like "Die Stadt der träumenden Bücher" and "Das Labyrinth der träumenden Bücher" the most. If you liked 13 1/2 lives and if you love books in general then you will love them! ;) 5y
Sarah83 @mellissimo I didn't like 'Rumo' so it is hard for me to start this one. 🤔 5y
mellissimo @Sarah83 Yeah, Rumo was kinda violent 🙈 This one is better! ;) 5y
Sarah83 @mellissimo and a bit boring.. 🤗 5y

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I think it's been a long time since I have been this mad about a book. I loved the two other Zamonien books that I have read. I enjoyed the intricate details described by the author. In this volume, the author completely went over board concerning the descriptions and absolutely neglected to push the story forward.... AND THEN... in basically the last sentence we are being told that the story really begins here... 😡😡😡

Brenley I am so torn over this book!!!! Like I love the Zamonien books and the previous City of Dreaming Books and the authors note at the end, but..... !!!! WTH?!! It was so maddening. I don't know. I can't believe we have to wait like several years for the next one!!! 5y
Kathrin @Brenley My thoughts exactly! 5y
readinginthedark Which is the first one? And have they been translated to English? 5y

Kathrin @readinginthedark Yes, they have been translated. The first book is 5y
Kathrin @readinginthedark The books are only loosely connected and some more than others... 5y
readinginthedark Oh okay. Thanks! I might try them and see what they‘re like. 5y

Walter Moers has some great characters, but the main character & narrator of this book takes the cake for #BestCharacterName. I mean, what name is better than Optimus Yarnspinner? #booktober

Nachdem ersten großartigen Teil war es doch eher enttäuschend. Den Einstieg fand ich zäh und auch zwischendrin hat es sich leider gezogen. Dafür gab es auch wieder super tolle Stellen und die ganzen Zeichnungen machen es zu einem Erlebnis. Zum Ende hin kam Spannung auf und lässt auf den dritten Teil hoffen. Insgesamt kann man sich die Fortsetzung zu "Die Stadt der träumenden Bücher" eher sparen, weil einfach der Zauber des Unbekannten fehlt.

SMR Es geht für mich nichts über Rumo und die Wunder im Dunkeln...hach, ich liebe es... 6y
Katjas_Lesewolke @SMR ich muss auch unbedingt noch andere Bücher vom Autor lesen^^ 6y

Ich liebe einfach die Zeichnungen und Wesen in den Büchern von Walter Moers. Es macht die Geschichte einfach zu was besonderem. Auch wenn ich mich mit dem Einstieg bisher etwas schwer getan habe, wird es jetzt langsam interessanter.
Auf dem Bild ist übrigens eine 'lebende historische Zeitung' so eine coole Idee^^

Dieses Buch wird mich heute zur Arbeit begleiten. Mal sehen, ob ich in der Pause dazu komme oder doch erst heute Abend ^^ Damals hat mir der erste Teil super gut gefallen, aber ich hab schon gehört, dass die Fortsetzung etwas schwächer wäre. Ich lass mich überraschen :)

Der Verlag sollte Autoren nicht hetzen. Dann kommt das dabei raus. Ein dicker Wälzer, dessen Handlung erst im letzten Kapitel beginnt und eine bis aufs weitere verschobene Fortsetzung.
