Δεν γνώριζα την ύπαρξη της "Λάουρα", όχι τουλάχιστον μέχρι την στιγμή όπου μου μίλησε γι' αυτήν η φίλη μου Ιφιγένεια. Ο ενθουσιασμός της ήταν τόσο μεγάλος και η παρότρυνσή της να διαβάσω την εν λόγω σειρά τόσο έντονη που είχα αποφασίσει πως θα το κάνω. Με τούτα και με εκείνα όμως, όλα και κάτι μεσολαβούσε και η βαρύτητά τους υπερτερούσε. Είδε κι απόειδε λοιπόν η φιλενάδα μου και για μια ακόμα φορά, αποφάσισε να μου χαρίσει ένα βιβλίο που ναι μεν είχα πει ότι θα διάβαζα, δεν είχα αξιωθεί να το κά ...more

Laura and the Secret of Aventerra is a book my mother bought for me 8 years ago when I got sick with the flu. It was the first book I read that was narrated from two different points of view and I remember I had loved it a lot. Very modern, enough dose of reality and magic blended into one, excellent writing style and much better than all the book series being published now. It never really received much attention because the translated copies of it weren't produced in great numbers, but I think ...more

I don't exactly remember how and when I first picked that book up, but I have an idea as to where I bought it from. And, I distinctly remember reading it while on a children's camp 6 or even more years ago.
Actually it was quite funny when I saw those pink pages, and was wondering what had happened to the ink, but soon realized what was going on.
Although, I can't really say much about the writer's writing skills, bec
Eines Tages ging Saku durch das schöne Fantasyland. Da traf sie, unter einem Baum sitzend, eine kleine Gruppe von Menschen. In der Mitte saß ein Junge, der eine blonde Langhaarperücke auf dem Kopf trug, rechts daneben stand ein Mädchen, das sich eine große Brille aufgesetzt hatte, sich kleiner zu machen schien, als es eigentlich war, und sich recht plump als Junge verkleidet hatte, links daneben ein Junge, der ebenfalls eine Langhaarperücke trug, diesmal eine rote, sowie ein Kleid. Neugierig und ...more
The first thing I want to say that you have to read this book when you are 10, or younger because after that age that book is too boring and too childish. If you read it when you are that age, in opinion, you will love it, but otherwise you won't be able to get into book, because now your probably searching for different types of books. Back then i could read hundreds of pages in one bite, but now, i tried to end the second sequel and i was reading one line 3000 times.
So yes, child imagination

Okay,I might say that about all the book series I read, but this one really stayed with me. All that Laura wants is to find out what happened to her dad, but she never would have thought that it would get sooo complicated. Such a shame it's not available in English. I read it in Hungarian at first when i was 12, and then when i was 17. Forever loving all characters, and the medieval scenes are magical to me. Anyone who speaks German, or Hungarian, or any language that th
The book was just awesome!

Ho amato molto l'intera saga, l'ho trovata molto originale e incredibilmente coinvolgente, al punto che rileggendo nuovamente la storia (sia a distanza di pochi mesi, sia a distanza di anni)è riuscita ugualmente a emozionarmi come se fosse la prima volta.

Absolutely fascinating series, an amazing journey. I highly recommend every children to read these series. You get more and more excited till you make it to the end. I remember i was a freshman in high school when i read this and i genuinely loved it.
I found this book when I went to the store and told my parents I wanted them to buy me the longest book they had for kids because I ended them too quickly. Freund's was the longest, plus it was hardcover AND had part of it in color.
At the moment I really liked the fact that the parts of what happened in Aventerra were in pink to difference it of our world (then I got disappointed when I bought the second book and instead of black I found gray -stupid funding cuts-). Also, Laura's brother, Lucas
i read this around 10 and what i remember is it was nonsensely long. But i still had the series. Not a bad one though.

Ich bin über dieses Buch etwas zwiegespalten. Die Geschichte ist recht kreativ und auch nett geschrieben. Für Erwachsene ist es etwas zu durchsichtig, obwohl noch immer recht spannend. Für Kinder ist die ganze Geschichte etwas lang und das Buch etwas dick. Trotzdem würde ich es für eine weibliche jugendliche Leserin zwischen 12 und 15 als Geschenk überlegen.
I don't know why is the title in German, I think it's German, (I read books in Croatian, maybe some of them in English). Anyway I liked Laura series. I didn't like the ending in any of Freund's books I have read. 4/5

I read it in Greek...not German...
Not a fan of stereotypical medieval setting on one half... Another half lacked a witty plot.

i loved those books as a child. i think they are much better than Harry Potter...
Somewhere halfway through the book, I was already hooked to the series. Great job!
I didn't like it as much as I wanted to. It had a slow pace and it was really boring.

War mir irgendwie zu zäh und jetzt bin ich schon so aus der Geschichte raus.

Nemůžu dát méně. Fakt mám Lauru ráda a těším se na další dobrodružství :)
