This book was so amazing, everyone should read this !! This is the first book I have ever read and finished, and it was 687 pages long. It took me 7 months, and for the first probably 3, I was just reading it in my head and I could only get through about 10 pages because I’m a very slow reader but, the narrator, Bronson Pinchot, not only did wonders in bringing the story to life and give every character and unique voice that perfectly captured them but probably saved me a year of trying to get through the book. The only negative thing I have to say about Pinchot was that the voice for Dandelion was a little annoying and hard to understand at times but again, it fit their character and really worked well with the story and Friftar’s voice was my favorite.
Walter Moers, (and my cousin who told me about the book) is the reason I can now say that I love reading. His ability to describe everything in such detail is incredible. Everyone and everything had a backstory, and those backstories were pages long sometimes, but it made the read so much more interesting and intricate because you knew where everything was supposed to fit and why it’s there and why they were so important for Rumo’s story. And the best part… THERE’S PICTURES !!!!! AND MAPS !!!!
I truly loved reading this book so so much it was worth all 7 months and 687 pages, thank you Walter Moers and Bronson Pinchot :)
