Die Stadt der Träumenden Bücher ☆ In this new Zamonian adventure Optimus der Träumenden ePUB #8608 Yarnspinner a young writer inherits from his beloved godfather an unpublished short story by an unknown author His search for the author’s identity takes him to Bookholm the so called City of Dreaming Books On entering its streets our hero feels as if he has opened the door 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 Book ¶ Die Stadt der Träumenden Bücher ↠ Walter Moers

Walter Moers ↠ Die Stadt der Träumenden Bücher Epub Of a gigantic second hand bookshop His nostrils areassailed by clouds of book dust the stimulating scent of ancient leather and the tang of printer’s inkSoon though Yarnspinner Die Stadt eBook #183 falls into the clutches of the city’s evil genius Pfistomel Smyke who treacherously maroons him in the labyrinthine catacombs underneath the 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 foeThis 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
