    I know this is going to sound really silly but this is the best book I've ever read Please don't get distracted by all the illustrations and the fact that this is a fantasy novel; it is a timeless mindblowing deeply moving masterpiece filled with beautiful imaginary worlds and superior writing It's a beautiful novel for people who love books and adventures for daydreamers idealists optimists people who haven't lost their hope but also for pessimists and people with depression because I promise that this book will light up your world and thoughts for a while You shouldn't underestimate the power of Walter Moers' words he'll change your life He has a beautiful intelligent writing style and the story he tells in fact all the novels he's written about the imaginary continent Zamonia will make you want to get cuddled up in bed with a cup of chocolate and a cinnamon roll and just enjoy every single page of this incredible reading adventure I'm not lying when I say that Walter Moers is a geniusI even filled 5 pages of my diary with uotes of this book really It's perfectI'll have to translate them for you guys because I wrote them down in German When everything else is gone we'll still have nature It is almost an instinct that we leave the house and go out into the open air outdoors in our garden with the leaves rustling and the stars shining down on us it gets easier to breathe we can forget about the weight of the world on our shoulders From the stars we came to the stars we'll return Life is just a journey to a place unknownThat's how I felt; I was music and danced in a burning circle high above everything Somewhere down there was the world was my body were my sorrows but all that seemed to be completely irrelevantI now understood the secret of music and knew what makes it so infinitely superior to all the other arts its incorporeality Once it has left an instrument it becomes its own master a free and independent creature of sound weightless incorporeal and perfectly in tune with the universeWe all are immediate spawns of the earth; we once were dust someday we'll turn into mold Without cease we pass by a parade of life a cortège of evanescenceAnd I remembered my reflection in the mirror that I used to admire so much when I was a child I remember the wish to be just like the person in the mirror looking back at me Completely alone If this doesn't convince you to read this book I don't know what willUpdate Reading this book for the 5th time now Still absolutely stunned by Walter Moers' imagination I WANT TO LIVE IN THIS BOOK

    What it IsWalter Moers and his excellent translator John Brownjohn love language and that love permeates ever page many times Conseuently the book is a comic hymn to the power beauty and fun of words along with a cautious love of books which can provoke or even be evil The books of the title are dreaming of being read because that's what brings them to lifeStory and SettingOptimus Yarnspinner comes from a city of authors and travels to Bookholm a city of bookshops trying to trace the author of the most perfectly written piece of writing he has ever encountered The fact he is a dinosaur is oddly irrelevantBookholm turns out to be a dangerous place especially once he enters the enormous laryrinthian catacombs under the city The sheer variety of bizarre creatures and experiences is startling unless you're already familiar with Moers' work Weird Words and IdeasA random collection of some of my favourite words and ideas Bookshops are so specialised they include one for novels with insect protagonists one for dwarves with blond beards and another for half finished books The primal note is the first officially recognised note and the basis for all Zamonian music The acoustic alchemy of trombophones can induce mass hallucination and hypnosis Booklings are little creatures each of whom memorises and takes on the character of one author a little like Farenheit 451 Even the street entertainment and food are book themed juggling with books and book shaped pastries; dancing with shadows is an antidote to loneliness Boring books include Chimney Sweeping for Advanced Students by Darko Lum How to Comb a Chicken and An Encyclopedia of Wood Planing Hair raising books include Where the Mummy Sings by Omar ben Shokka A Handful of Staring Eyes by the Weirdwater Sisters and Skeletons in the Reeds by Hallucinea Krewel Allegedly archaic words include spinking speaking and stinking of garlic ambivaliguous when you can't make up your mind and an abcedist is someone obsessed with putting things in alphabetical order and not to be confused with a zyxedistAnagrams of the FamousI noticed the uirky names but was oblivious to the fact that many are anagrams of famous people such as Asdrel Chickens Charles Dickens Aliesha Wimperslake William Shakespeare and Trebor Snurb Robert BurnsMore here it's not all perfect There is a clichéd moment when a baddie explains his evil plan a la James Bond etc and when Yarnspinner eventually finds the author he the author speaks in a rather simple and banal way which is strangeAnother problem is that much as I enjoyed it this book feels too long The 13½ Lives of Captain Bluebear was a similar length set in a similar world but that story was episodic so it worked better Nevertheless the language wonderful line drawings and sheer humour and exhuberance still make it an enjoyable romp

    what an amazing novel ridiculous irreverant hilarious philisophical snuggly informative and many other ives that are positive i don't want to spoil it as if anyone could for folks so i'll just say this; a three foot tall dinosaur travels to said city in possession of a manuscript and in search of its author and manages to re write the history of Zamonian literature and foil a nefarious schemeGO FORTH AND READ THIS WONDERFUL NOVEL

    I reached the end of this tale with such mixed feelings There were times when I felt that the book would never end and I was so very bored There were other times when I drank up every word as if it were ambrosia and I wanted the spirit of the book to shine through my every waking hour Overall the outstanding moments of imagination and muse far outweighed the plodding aspects of yet another odd and dangerous creature encounter or one night or was it day? one can never really tell in the book catacombsI'm afraid a large part of my boredom with segments of the book stems from the fact I could never feel uite chummy with our narrator protagonist The ambivalence I felt toward him certainly lessened my interest in his various adventures and trials Also I was not a big fan of the violence and gore and scary creatures granted these were all very much in PG 13 style but still not my cup of tea I discovered that City of Dreaming Books was not a good book to go off to dreamland with let me tell you These points may not be faults of the book but rather of my not being the perfect match for the book I should note that my husband was I think a far bigger fan of it than I wasThat said there are so many chapters in this book that are rich in vivid and marvelous imagination Anyone who loves book should at least give it a try The story takes place in Bookholm a land where books and authors are valued above everything else The fantasy element includes not only the odd creepy creatures but some very adorable book loving ones and the fact that books have been made into than just paper and ink There are some dangerous books that can actually kill you Adventure books that come with a bandanna so you can wipe your brow when you start sweating from the suspense Books with rare perfumes Books that actually come to life And behind all this is some great mysteries Who wrote the manuscript that was beueathed to our dinosaur protagonist by his authorial godfather and is probably the most outstanding book ever written? Is the Orm said to give inspiration to authors real? And is the Shadow King that inhabits the book catacombs friend or foe?This story is also highly recommended for anyone who loves to write Not since L M Montgomery's Emily series have I found a story that speaks to deeply to the spirit of authors All in all I have fond feelings as I reflect back on the tale though I tend to focus on my favorite aspects and ignore the parts that bored me

    The City of Dreaming Books by German author Walter Moers is one of my all time favorite books Since the original is written in German and my German knowledge is minimal I read the Dutch translation I tried to look up all the names from the English translation so everything should be clear but translations in different languages can always be confusingThe StoryThe City of Dreaming Books tells the tale of Optimus Yarnspinner an aspiring writer who inherits his godfather’s possessions and finds a manuscript that turns out to be the perfect story He embarks on a journey to Bookholm a city entirely filled with bookshops where books dream to be bought to find the anonymous author of the story When he arrives the city rises above all his expectationsThe shops the writers — it’s all a dream come true but soon he finds out it isn’t as perfect as he first thought Beneath the city is a gigantic labyrinth filled with old and valuable books and many dangers like the violent and merciless book hunters the Toxicotomes – books that are death traps – and the mysterious but evil Shadow King Optimus gets manipulated into the labyrinth and has to face all these dangers and to find his way up againThe WorldThe story takes place in Zamonia the same setting as two other – translated – books by Moers Rumo And His Miraculous Adventures and The 13 12 Lives of Captain Bluebear Both are eually awesome and I often pick Rumo as my favorite instead of Dreaming Books because it’s so hard to choose The world of Zamonia is filled with crazy animals strange lifeforms and bizarre geographic evolutions This is fantasy like no other has been written It might even be a whole new genre Everything is original and unexpected though often strange and bizarre The illustrations are amazing and add a whole new layer to the storiesAt first sight the writing style world setting and illustrations seem to be directed at children or young adult but these are stories only adults can truly appreciate The City of Dreaming Books for example is filled with witty literary critic and has tons of famous authors featured hidden behind anagrams One poor Bookling had to learn all the works of Wamilli Swordthrow by heart another was lucky to have to learn the collected work of Aliesha Wimperslake There’s also the famous Ohm a level of writing balance and genius every author aims for but which only few manage to claim This makes the book a true book for booklovers readers and writers alike fantasy fan or notAnother great facet is that all the Zamonia stories intertwine on some level Optimus is a Lindworm a race of literary dinosaurs but it is in Rumo that we learn how the Lindworm Vest came to its end We learn from the characters backgrounds in other stories The recurring characters make you want to reread the other books after finishing one because you discover something new every time and want to match the new information with everything else you knowIt is truly a world you want to visit over and overBack to the BookThere hasn’t been a book about books that refilled me with my love of reading as this one did There hasn’t been a Fantasy book that amazed me with it’s world so much as this one except maybe for Rumo but that’s the same world There hasn’t been a book that made me buy all the other works by the author as fast as this oneThe City of Dreaming Books is the city I’d love to live in The books mentioned are the books I want to read Even though it’s all fictionalIt is truly an exceptional book and I urge you all to read it Originally published on the Ergofiction e zine

    This is one of the most charming and delightful books I've ever read Highly recommend to anyone who loves books as they're really the heart of this story both in terms of reading and writing them I found myself smiling while reading most of this because it's just such a joy This will definitely be one I need to reread as it's full of uotes I wish I'd taken the time to write down the first time but was too focused on continuing reading to do so

  8. Lora Lora says:

    This is the wittiest book I have read in a long time A bibliophile's dream come true It's full of wordplay and allusions to many classic works of literature except that the references are slightly askew to fit into this novel's realm I love that the famous authors in this story are often anagrams of well known bards of the real world The author is also kind enough to provide his own illustrations of his world Literate dinosaurs fearsome booklings wicked literary agents and a Shadow King formed of the very stuff of legends make this novel one surprise after another and keep the reader smiling or at the very least smirkingpage after page

    A MUST for all book lovers

    I want so much to write a perfect review for this ridiculous novel because it is truly magical I've not been this joyously captivated in a long timeThe City of Dreaming Books is light and silly and adventurous and fun The writing is perfectly charmingly engrossing and the translation is amazing I can't uite tell who the intended audience is but it doesn't matter It is an imaginative marvel Indeed even with the help of the whimsical illustrations I had to pause and close my eyes every few paragraphs just to construct Moers' inexhaustible parade of creations I was rootling around in my own imagination with childlike gleeThere is so much heart in this book So very much to enjoy – from the grand journey Optimus Yarnspinner takes to hunt down the best author in the world to the smallest speculative details and wordplay My favourite anagrammatical story and writer in Bookholm? Vaddi Flopperdice by Asdrel ChickensThe sheer scope of this uest tale is overwhelmingly difficult to describe and if I try I'll get sick of my own overuse of praising adjectives Clearly I have not touched the Orm in my composition of this review but I can uite simply say that I loved this book I intend to visit it again and hunt down any seuels that have made their way into English The City of the Dreaming Books is for book lovers for writers and for anyone who can get lost in their own head and craves a ludicrous adventure This book has enough magic to cast its spell on you and keep you in thrall
