Buccaneer Blogfest: week 3 day 3

and another week is almost over ladies and Gentlemen. Can you believe it we have only one week left before we go back to our regular scheduled programming? Yes Yes I know what you are thinking, but Gloria you don't have regular scheduled programming any more. well we will see when this is over.
today's prompt is to recommend or review a book. and my book of choice should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following my blog. here are 5 reasons you should read the Neverending Story by Michael Ende.
1. how can anyone resist a book that never ends? Yes the book comes to an end, but each of the plot threads ends with "but that is another story to be told at another time." it is just rip for fans to take the world of fantstica and run head long into the imaginative world that has been created.

2. What Writer doesn't want to be Bastian? the world is clay at his fingertips, when he tells a story it becomes real!

3. Flying dragons that are good and talk!

4. It has a theme song. There are very few books worthy of a theme song.

5. If you don't read the Neverdending Story you can't follow along with me as I write my commentary/lectures.

Look I love love LOVE this book. And part of loving something is wanting to share it with others. So you should read it. it inspires me let it inspire you.

Its good but the Princess Bride by S. Morgenstern is better if you can ever find a copy. Most of us have to live with the abridgement.

Thats a good pick but The Princess Bride by S. Morgenstern is better. To bad most of us only get to read the abridged version.
