Gr 5 Up-Michael Ende's beloved fantasy (Doubleday, 1983) about a young boy who becomes a mighty hero in the story he is reading gains vibrant new life through this fantastic audio. Narrator Gerard Doyle transports listeners into the beautiful and dangerous world of Fantastica, a land filled with dragons, giants, and monsters, providing each character with a distinct voice and making the imaginative landscapes feel like tangible places. Some familiar only with the movie version (Warner Home Video, 2001) may be disheartened to learn that the well-known children's film only loosely adheres to the book on which it was based. But most will be thrilled to learn that the Neverending Story continues long after Bastian bestows the Childlike Empress with her new name. Whimsical creatures abound and exciting surprises await listeners at every turn. As with any hero's journey, an important-and hard-won-lesson must be learned before Bastian's quest can be completed. Although originally intended for young audiences, this timeless fantasy will thrill listeners of any age and continue to enchant them for generations to come. The only drawback is the audio's inconsistent volume. Overall, this epic tale has everything a fantasy enthusiast could wish for and more.

When it arrived, I was happily surprised. It came specially wrapped, like someone had shown care to the book that I wanted in my special collection. In addition to the book, a small pouch with an Auryn necklace was included. From the images, it seemed like the Auryn necklace was just a prop, and I didn't see it as being part of the book. Nevertheless, you get your own necklace. I thought that was a nice touch.
As for the book itself, it's just stunning to hold. It's obviously just a touch smaller than the prop in the movie, but it's of superb quality. The binding, the leather outer covering, the text. Every detail of the book was well done. I held this book and said, "I don't regret paying $200 for this."
If you're on the fence, I recommend it. Such a great book to own and this special edition is worth it.
