#currentlyreading this imaginative #LGPOG pick. I haven‘t had much reading time lately so it‘s slow going, but quite good.

I love the illustrations, all the bookish references, the whimsical characters. Hoping to get a little more reading in tonight and tomorrow so I can finish it.

Bookworm83 I‘m so glad you are enjoying it! ❤️ 1mo

This was...y'know, alright. The language and prose were fantastical and whimsical and fun to read...but the actual narrative could've been 100 pages and with a main character who didn't just watch everyone else do everything. Squidapus is not a fan of writing a narrative tale where 80% of your focus is world-building history and lists like it's a Fantasy Wikipedia article. In the end he still liked the book but he often waited for plot to show up

#LetsTravelJuly Day 20: Captain Bluebear‘s journey has taken a great deal of #detour but this novel is one epic ride! Some may find Moers longwinded while others might find his imagination too absurd for words and abandon the reading of the novel altogether. But no book has ever made me laugh out loud in such abandon – tears streaming down my cheeks in utter hilarity. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-4IK

Books I've kept on my shelves from the last two years. I've read a lot from my shelves this year, but I usually take a lot to my class library. My goal next year is to read what is on my shelves so I can make room for more!

Megabooks I loved The Interestings! 11mo

I was a big fan of this book! The land of Zamonia that author Walter Moers created is whimsical and quirky and the illustrations that accompany the story are fantastic. It‘s 703 pages but it flies by and ended up being a fairly quick read. If you want an adult fairytale, this book is for you. Highly recommend!

mellissimo I absolutly love all his books and illustrations. When reading his books I always can't wait to flip the page to see the next illustration. I'm actually kinda sad that I already read all of them and can't read them for the first time again ;) 12mo

Of course! When I come to think about it the best books I read had mostly over 400 pages 🤔😄
I try now and then to convince some of my not-so read-obsessed- friends to not be intimidated by size/length.
@SilversReviews

SilversReviews I like 350 and under. 😊 Thanks for playing and re-posting. 12mo

Moers‘ language is rich and imaginative, sometimes with an almost formal feel to it, but simultaneously playful, almost whimsical.
Although many people may read this as an amazing, fantastical story, to me it was about the adventure that‘s reading. About the dangers and pitfalls, joys and surprises, excitement and anticipation.
Either way, an absolute joy to read!
@Tahoe Thanks for the recommendation!!😘

Nute Fabulous review! I wanted to read this book at one time and then I thought it wasn‘t for me, but now I‘m reconsidering because of this review. Thanks for sharing! 12mo
LittleBug @Nute It‘s good fun! I read it in the original language though and I have no idea how good this translates... 12mo
