did not like it

I hated this book so much. I'll tell you why.

So, the story is about this little boy named Bastian who is obsessed with all things fantasy. He gets in trouble at school frequently, for doodling unicorns on his notes. His father is disappointed in him, and attempts to wean him off the fantasy thing. But Bastian sneaks into his school's attic for some reason (read this a few years ago, don't remember everything) and stumbles upon a fantasy novel called the Neverending Story. It's about a dude called Atreyu that has a horse and needs to fulfill a prophecy to save his dying princess.

I found everything just a load of garbage, and it was really slow and boring at times. I dislike the fact that it was about a book within a book. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody, not even hardcore fantasy buffs like myself.

Uma It was!
I remember from the movie "Atreyu!" and I was sick the 1st day she showed it so I'm like "what's the never ending story?"


Spooki Girl Lol, thank god it ended... I also remembered not liking the Edgar Allen Poe unit much... pretty boring to me, and definitely not scary!!

Uma me too! it was a bit..


Abby M. Ganhar Aren't you getting a bit mixed up? It's the MOVIE where the main character draws unicorns, I don't believe he does so in the book it's based on...
