The Blue Box is...something else. I can't truly describe how I felt as I found myself immersed in this fantasy world in Germany, where danger lurks around every corner and what you see isn't always what you get. Where dreams that are lost have a way if coming back to haunt you.

A truly original story, incredibly well written. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Jurgen Olschewski creates characters and the worlds they live in with striking images and writes with a very fine touch. Highly recommended.

This novel is so full of ideas and images that will stay with any reader for a long, long time. There is a magic in the narrative drive; a story which compels the reader to simply sit and be enchanted by the poetic characterisations created by the author. A brilliant book.
