    1 thought on “Rumo & de wonderen in het donker

    1. Moers may have become my favorite author I picked this book up on a whim, off the sale table at Powell s, and it was stunning I think it s a children s book, but it s the rare children s book that doesn t adjust the language to read at a sixth grade reading level or sanitize any of the violence This book turned out to be the beautiful love child of J.K Rowling and Norton Juster, raised by L Frank Baum and the entire staff DC Comics Beautifully illustrated, marvelously gory and violent while stil [...]

    2. Oh, my what a fun and crazy read this was If you have a hankering for fantasy, comedy, and awesomely unsettling illustrations, combined in one amazing adventure then you have come to the right place Right from the word go we are introduced to a little Wolperting a dog like creature called Rumo named after the famous Zamonian card game His content life being looked after by Hackonian Dwarves is thrown into chaos when he and the friends are taken captive by the evil Demonocles So then begins a mad [...]

    3. Rumo the wonder pup is named after a card game If I had to choose a card game name for myself I would go with Solitaire Not as catchy of course, but maybe going by a shortened version of the name instead might improve it a littleEM How is the girl book cave treating you Solly ME Not a cave built for two friend, move along Sounds perfect to meCK TO THE REVIEWRumo the wonder pup is a Wolperting but it took him a while to learn this fact because like my favorite Bluebear from another Zamonia story, [...]

    4. I completely disagree with the Washington Post Rumo is no mash up of Rowling Douglas Adams Shel Silverstein, nor is it silly Moers is like no one else I ve ever read, I think I can safely say that he stands alone in his style of writing This particular novel has plotline than previous ones I ve read, and yes, it was too long but it was too much of a good thing, which is better than too much of a bad thing Everyone has got to try reading a Moers book at least once he is so fabulously inventive a [...]

    5. The one of the great achievements of Rumo is that, despite being a book of epic proportions, never becomes a chore to read There are many to choose from for example, the delightful illustrations by the author spaced throughout, the biazare flights of imagination, the varied and unique characters, and a plot that is strange but never hard to follow Strange is a good way to describe Rumo, but it is a strangeness grounded in both science and in literary savviness Cliches are subverted with loving [...]

    6. Oh war das toll Ich habs nat rlich geschafft die B cher komplett achronologisch zu lesen, aber das tut dem Ganzen keinen Abbruch Bemerkenswert finde ich nicht nur die F lle an Sub plots und Geschichten in Geschichten die alle letztlich von Bedeutung sind, sondern auch die Tatsache, dass die unaussprechlichen Grausamkeiten das wohlige Gef hl, dass sich bei mir einstellte, nicht kleinkriegen konnten Ich war entr stet, emp rt, angeekelt und dann kurz darauf entz ckt, gl cklich und verzaubert Rumo i [...]

    7. This book is highly creative and has an interesting story, if it would only manage to stick with it We are presented with backstories to every minor character and there are far to many of them There is sometimes not really a focus But on the upside, everything is kind of relevant, either to understand the character right now, or it becomes important later on The illustrations made by the author are great to better understand his visions I enjoyed them a lot There are a little too much fight scen [...]

    8. I picked this book up on a whim from the local used book store A walking talking wolf thing wielding a dandelion knife possessed by a demon just sounded fun The blurb stating the book was equal parts J.K Rowling, Douglas Adams, and Shell Silverstein seemed a little hard to live up to, but it was interesting praise none the less When I looked on and saw an average rating of over 4 stars, I was sold I m a bit sad to say that the book didn t live up to the four star rating, the high praise, or my e [...]

    9. I was at once taken in by this great saga of a wolperting dog who is smarter and braver than most inhabitants from his Island Zamonia If a bit graphically violent than it s first companion book The first 13 1 2 lives of Captain Bluebear , the miraculous adventures of this hero begin with his kidnapping as a baby His unfortunate luck brings him to be a captive on a floating rock inhabited by savage cyclops whose main desire is to eat live beings in gruesome manners Fortunately, this wolperting m [...]

    10. B cher geschenkt zu bekommen ist immer wunderbar, besonders wenn es sich um Romane handelt, die der Schenkende selber sehr mag und man die Geschichte schon lange lesen wollte Und obwohl es sich bei Rumo die Wunder im Dunkeln bereits um das dritte Buch im Zamonien Zyklus von Walter Moers handelt, versteht man die Geschichte auch so wunderbar Denn was der Autor hier hinzaubert, ist nicht nur wundervoll romantisch, emotional und humorvoll, sondern auch ein in sich abgeschlossenes Werk voller Abente [...]

    11. Wacky Weird Whimsical A wonderful cure for chronic insomnia I understand that the native language of this book is not English, so I ought to cut some slack, but I am traumatized from the agonizing amount of effort I put in to finish this book I almost quit after 300 pages, but, by God, I swore I would not let some measly book defeat me I never give up on a book, unless it is The Tommyknockers or Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.I almost kept a running tally of redundant words, just to k [...]

    12. This book reads like a children s book for adults Although the tale starts off innocently enough, and maintains a child like quality, it quickly delves into a lot of violence and some pretty scary ideas monsters Nurn Forest, The Metal Maiden, The Vrahoks So don t look at the illustrations and think this is good for younger children, unless you think that they can handle ample violence and literary gore The book is broken down into two parts The Overworld and the Underworld I personally enjoyed t [...]

    13. Sometimes a book just calls out to me from a bookstore shelf, and this one did German author Moers creates an other world fairy tale with a hero known as Rumo, a Wolperting a dog wolf creature with an abundance of teeth, antlers, oppossable thumbs, and the abilities to fight like a Spartan, speak and build civilizations I was hooked from the first page, which I felt compelled to read outloud The writing is playful and sharp For all its wierdness, the story becomes compelling very quickly.I m onl [...]

    14. Oh So magnificent Longish, it s true some of the back stories peppered throughout maybe could have been whittled back or out to decrease the bulk of it, but what a fabulous journey I thought this was like Lord of the Rings, but much enjoyable and creative Any lover of fantasy should read this book, especially because it is that rare gem of well written fantasy, not just a genre stock fiction How had I never heard of Mr Moers before I thought this was a pleasure, and I plan to read all the avail [...]

    15. 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 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 love Walter Moers quirky humour, and the way he lets the book medium help him tell a story and set an atmosphere Rumo was a lot darker than the two other books, and it seemed like Walter Moers tried to combi [...]

    16. This audiobook was so much fun and i love Walter Moer s zany Zamonia I had a great time following Rumo journey from a Hackonian dwarf farm to Roaming Rock and Wolperting, to Hel and back again I learned the blood song and can now hold my own in a karaoke contest with the dead Yetis I m sure I ll be taking a peek into the drawer labeled R on Professor Nightingale s chest of drawers oracle again soon, but this time in hardcopyI heard there are illustrations

    17. This was pretty gritty and dark, so it s weird that I liked it as much as I did But I love Zamonia I love all the different species And I loved the characters in this book The story was so neatly intertwined complicated and yet making perfect sense It was just a really fun adventure if a somewhat grisly one.

    18. The follow up to Moers 13 1 2 LIVES OF CAPTAIN BLUEBEAR, this novel gives us the story of two late characters in that book, the Wolperting hero Rumo of Zamonia and his less savory associate, Volzotan Smyke, a gambling addicted sharkgrub And if those introductory words don t put you off, then this might be the book for you.Unlike the absurdist memoir character of BLUEBEAR, Rumo s story has a directed arc one defined by a Silver Thread that only he can see that beckons him to places beyond where [...]

    19. Hach, da habe ich mal wieder mein Lieblingsh rbuch und Buch geh rt Ich kann wirklich nicht z hlen, wie oft ich das H rbuch schon geh rt habe Aber es d rfte so zwischen 10 und 20 Mal sein Und trotzdem finde ich die Geschichte immer wieder soooo spannend Ich kann gar nicht sagen, wie toll ich dieses Buch finde Es ist einfach mein Lieblingsbuch, punkt Die Charaktere sind so liebenswert und die Geschichte so abwechslungsreich und spannend Ich kenne keinen Autoren, der derartig viel Ideenreichtum und [...]

    20. They always say never to judge a book by its cover, but I always do In my opinion it should be Don t Judge a book ONLY by its cover but the cover should be judged.The reason I say this is because I went to the library one day pressed for time I am odd with how i look around at books I really just go to a genre section I like, then find a good title, then if i like the cover title I scope out a few pages to see how it is written, then I go from there This book had me at the cover I love when leng [...]

    21. Rumo, Rumo, Rumo After reading my first Moers book, the one based on the paintings I was absolutely hooked DO NOT be put off by how thick the book is, the amazing pictures take up quite a bit of space amongst the text This is not your typical everything is peachy faerie tale, there are MANY dark and fowl creatures and situations along the way Your imagination is certainly stretched beyond itself, with not all moments being caught in pictures The book is structured to come across new characters a [...]

    22. This is my favorite Walter Moers book so far Rumo is a Wolperting who discovers his abilities to be than just pet just in time to be captured with his adopted family by the Demonocles and taken to Roaming Rock in anticipation of being dinner for them Under the coaching of Volzotan Smyke first seen in Bluebear he is brought to his potential to fight the Demonocles and free himself and his fellow captives.He is then free to follow his Silver Thread which takes him to the city of Wolperting Being [...]

    23. If you mixed together The Princess Bride, The Phantom Tollbooth, and 300, then you might have something approaching Rumo His Miraculous Adventures Rumo is a well written fantasy with strange creatures, graphic fighting, and a very high body count I loved how it told stories within stories This was especially prominent near the beginning of the book, and I thought it was brilliant however, as the book went on there were fewer stories within stories and the frame story became the main action The t [...]

    24. Moers Quest Narrative ist eines der besten Werke der deutschen Phantastik Inspiriert von den Klassikern der Weltliteratur, der Divina Commedia, Don Quixote, Gargantua et Pantagruel, Gothic Literature, H.P Lovecraft und vielen weiteren, spinnt er eine Geschichte die mitrei t und begeistert Dazu sein unverkennbarer Illustrationsstil, der nicht passender f r die Geschichten Zamoniens sein k nnte Warum dennoch nur vier Sterne Vor einigen Jahren habe ich Rumo noch f nf gegeben Letzten Endes sind die [...]
