This book was the very first chapter book I have ever read. Because of that book i am a very avid reader. The plot is very gripping at the begining. it strts to slow down and then at the end speeds up. Germany produces some of the greatest books and this is no exeption. I was in kindergarden and I read it in one week.

This book is really great! It was the first real Fantasy book i ever read and thanks to it i desire to read Fantasy, to make my imagination eaven larger. The problems of Fantasia could be compared with our world, for if the storys disappear from our world, if we forget to laugh, to have fun, to imageine, we become booring, life is gray and full of work. We would eventually become as empty as Xayiedes soldiers. And the world would become cold and dark. The books is a good way to see, that we need friends, happyness and imagination and most of all, communication with eachother or the meaingn of our lives will be swallowed by the Nothing of everyday life. Good job Michale Ende, atleast this soul will keep fighting for storys;)

This book was the greatest book I have ever read. It usually takes me a month to finish a book because I am so lazy, but I finished this one in 3 days (not because I am a fast reader, but because I was so enveloped by the world of Fantasia). This book has a clear cut main message, with many other subtle messages thrown in. Lovable characters, dazzling locations, and the right spark for anyone's imagination can all be found in The Neverending Story.

The story is beautiful. It is not needlessly happy, as many books try to be, but instead thought-provoking and wonderfully descriptive, not afraid to tell tales of greed, cruelty, and sadness, but instead open about everything, and leaving no detail out. It manages to combine our world and Fantastica seamlessly, in a way that has always made sense to me, and I hope that others find the same spirit and beauty in it that I did.

This was an intriguing book. I liked it on the whole; Bastian's inner journey, as he traverses through Fantastica, was really quite interesting. Yet many times, throughout the story, I found myself thinking, "Why?" I mean, there were whole plotlines that seemed irrelevant to the story, zillions of unnecessary characters, and WAY too much pointless journeying! But the ending was great. Whether you like a book like this is up to you.

I really love this book. It is a book that shows how people need to communicate with other "worlds" or regions and countries. It is on e of the most fantasy related book. I mean no one can really think of this kind of story in one day. It probobly took a while for a really great author like Michael Ende to think of such a fantastic book. It really made me think of how the world need to be kind and generous to one another so they can keep in touch and not loose contact forever. as in th story when only few humans can go to fantasia. I love to see people reading and would like many other people to read this wonderful book about Atreyu's and Bastian's journies through fantasia and how they make choices in life. Great Job Mr. Ende

This book is so amazing. I love to read books, but only ones I judged by the cover, if it was interesting or not. I first found this book behind the bookshelf. My mum had bought it recently, but it had been pushed away, further and further until the day we moved and the bookshelf was empty I found it in the dust. I read it on the way to the house and just couldn't put it down, it was so interesting. Now I read every book I see, and they all turn out to be interesting. Thanks!
