The Neverending Story
By Michael Ende, Ralph Manheim
Why this book?
I grew up watching The Neverending Story. It simultaneously scared the hell out of me and enthralled me, so when I discovered that the movie was based on a book, I immediately picked it up. As most people argue, the book is always better than the movie and in this case I felt that the movie didn’t even come close to doing it justice. In fact, I found it interesting that the story itself is spread across movie sequels, whereas everything is in one book. There’s also so much more emphasis on the strange creatures, ever-changing world, and magical components with plenty of twists in between. Overall, I was surprised by how much I loved it even as an adult, and I found myself smiling while reading it. If you’re looking for something fun and fantastical, look no further.
