Set in the land of Zamonia, this exuberant, highly original fantasy from Walter Moers features an unlikely hero. Rumo is a little Wolperting - a domesticated creature somewhere between a deer and a dog - who will one day become the greatest hero in the history of Zamonia. Armed with Dandelion, his talking sword, he fights his way through the Overworld and the Netherworld. He meets Rala, a beautiful Wolperting female; Urs of the Snows, who thinks more of cooking than of fighting; Gornab the Ninety-Ninth, the demented king of Netherworld; Professor Ostafan Kolibri, who goes in search of the Non-Existent Teenies; Professor Abdullah Nightingale, inventor of the Chest-of-Drawers Oracle; and, worst luck, the deadly Metal Maiden. Astonishingly inventive, amusing, and engrossing, Rumo is a captivating story from the unique imagination of Walter Moers. Illustrated with the author's own line drawings and filled with humor, this rambunctious novel will delight fans tired of the usual epic fantasy. The comparisons are many - Douglas Adams, Lewis Carrol, J.K. Rowling, Dr. Seuss, R. Crumb - but Moers is clearly an original. Long live Zamonia!

Ein recht typischer Moers. Es ist fantasievoll, sprachlich mitreißend und die Geschichte fesselt einen ans Buch. Am Anfang erhält der Leser Eindrücke in die Gedankenwelt eines jungen Wolpertinger, welcher mit seiner Familie verschleppt wird und von nun an in Angst lebt. Wir begleiten Rumo auf dem...

3.0 RUMO & Die Wunder im Dunkeln. 21 CDs
Von Dirk Bach (T_T) natürlich wunderbar gelesen, aber die Geschichte ist, nach wie vor, nicht wirklich meins. Schöne und lustige Ideen sind zwar dabei, aber besonders die letzte Hälfte ist mir immer noch viel zu grausig und brutal... (Und wir haben es ausgerechnet zum Einschlafen gehört... ~_~)

Walter Moers is a fairly new discovery, but so far I've loved everything I've read by him. This was no exception, although it started out a lot more slowly than the other books, so took me longer to get thoroughly hooked. However, by the time Rumo made it to Wolperting, there was no looking back.I l...
