The Never Ending Story by Michael Ende

The NeverEnding Story 

How many of you remember the movie The Neverending Story?  My sister and I used to watch this movie quite a bit.  It was one of my favorites.  I hadn't watched it in about 20 years, but I pulled it out the other night.

My yearning to watch the movie began when I picked up the book and started reading that.  Usually when I read a book that also has a movie, I like to read the book first, all of the way through and then watch the movie.  But this time, it had just been too long since I had seen the movie that I couldn't wait.

The book began very much like the movie.  Of course, there are a some differences like all books and movies.  I was enjoying the book.  Not even to the halfway mark though, the book was crawling into new territory.  And I mean crawling.

I think there is a reason why the movie only used part of the book!  The rest of the book went into this story that was just stranger and stranger.  I did not care too much for the rest of the book.  I was very glad to see that Atreyu and Falkor were in the story until the end though.  But I was disturbed that Artex never came back to life.  I always liked Artex.

I am going to keep the book for the kids to read.  You never know, they may enjoy the story better than I do.  And it will always work for a book to read for a book report!  If you'd like to check the book out on your own, click on the click from Amazon on the left.

I did this review because I wanted to.  The book is my own that I bought brand new at the bookstore.  It was not given to me to review.  The opinions are also my own!
