    So I'll start this review by saying that Oscar Wilde is already the biggest literary influence in my life. There are so many good things about this recording, it will be difficult to enumerate them all. Let me start by praising the voice actors. Their rendering of these stories is very emotional (with the exception of the firework story, that one is good but silly), done with obvious attention to the story that it almost feels like it's something that they wrote for their children. BTW, I wouldn't mind being read stories by Judi Dench every night before I went to sleep. My favorite, and always has been, is The Happy Prince. I swear to God I cry every single time I read it anyways, and the audio of it had me almost crying in my office. UGH so good. Some stories were new, others were old favorites, but all of it was just perfect. Everybody should own this/ be sharing these stories with everyone. Also a very good cause. You have literally no reason not to own this.

    Would you listen to The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There again? Why?

    I will definitely listen to this book again. It was perfect squeal to the first fairyland book!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Several times toward the end of the book I was pleasantly surprised by what was revealed. It was like the magician revealing the rabbit was under the cloth the whole time and you were so sure he put it in the hat. It was amazing. SJ tuckers narration was prefect!

  • "Hillarious and fantastic book and g..."

    12 of 12 helpful votes

    At first I'd like to mention that all of Walter Moers books are kind of either you love them or you don't like them - I don't think there's much inbetween. However - if you like humorous, fantastic and intelligently written stories I strongly recommend to either read or listen to one of his books, because chances are high you'll like them.

    Some words to the Zamonia novels in general:
    Walter Moers is a German author and I read all his Zamonia novels in German first (I'm German too) and listened to two in German (Alchemasters Apprentice and City of Dreaming Books). I think I can say that Zamonia books together are my favorite books.
    Nevertheless, I had my doubts, if it would be possible to translate these books accordingly, because Moers created so many new, fantastic words, creatures, locations, sciences etc. in his novels. But I have to admit, after listening the first four hours of Captain Bluebear, that the English version is nearly as good as the German one, even if I as a .

    In my opinion, Captain Bluebear is the "least good" (because worst wouldn't be the right expression) of the Zamonia novels, but if you haven't read or listened to any of them yet, I would still recommend you to start with this book, because it gives you the best overview over the Zamonian world. Rumo, the City of Dreaming Books and to some extend the Alchemasters Apprentice sometimes reference to small sections of Captain Bluebear (you would still understand the story without knowing the Bluebear, but it's even more fun, if you recognize some parts from other books again).

    There's one big disadvantage that comes with listening to the audio version instead of reading the actual book: You don't get see Moers drawings, which often give you a good picture of what kind of creature Moers is talking about in the respective section.
    But this disadvantage is nearly offset by the great way the book is read by Mr. Pinchot. He reads very entertaining and does a great job with the voices!

    Nyroc has exiled himself from the Pure Ones. He flies alone, feared and despised by those who know him as Kludd's son, hunted by those whose despotism he has rejected, and haunted by ghostly creatures conjured by Nyra to lure him back to the Pure Ones. He yearns for a place he only half believes in - the great tree - and an uncle - the near-mythic Soren - who might be a true father to him. Yet he cannot approach the tree while the rumor of evil still clings to him.
