FREE READ × PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB õ Michael Ende Michael Ende õ 6 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Die unendliche Geschichte í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB This epic work of the imagination has captured the hearts of millions of readers worldwide since it was first published than a decade ago Its special story within a story is an irresistible invitation for readers to become part of the book itself And now this modern classic and bibliophile's dream is available One of my favorite books of all time this one is definitely closest to my heart I ve certainly read it than any other Ender s Game being a close second Which is interesting because it s almost nothing like any of my other favorites besides maybe Watership Down Maybe it s because it s the first main character I was able to truly identify with Or maybe because Bastian does what I had always dreamed of as a child since the day I started reading to enter inside a book to turn my imagination into reality And what is this book if not the most beautiful ode to imagination and story tellingThe first time I read this I was probably about 11 or 12 and it was after seeing The Neverending Story II in the theater Till that moment I had never known The Neverending Story was a book and just happened to notice this in the credits Thank god I did The fact that it led me to the book is probably the only redeeming factor of that film I read the book all in one day from morning till night with nothing but the same lunch Bastian packed for himself in the movie I may have cheated later on at night It s tough when you re not actually hiding in the attic of your school but lounging on your bed And I ve probably read it at least once a year since then Even as an adult am I really one of those now I still love being transported to this world and I think it s a testament to the power of this book that it can still take me there From Atreyu s uest to Bastian coming to fantastica to their travels and adventures and Bastian s eventual journey home I m with them the whole way A secret part of me still hopes that the Childlike Empress will appear before me and that I can join Bastian and Atreyu for real in fantastica Till then the book and my imagination will have to do For anyone who loves reading through and through and who still has that sense of childhood wonder inside of them please read this book
