Overview

Rumo and His Miraculous Adventures (Zamonia Series #2) by Walter Moers

Astonishingly inventive, amusing and engrossing, Rumo is a captivating story from the wildly fanciful imagination of Walter Moers.
Rumo is a little Wolperting who will one day become the greatest hero in the history of Zamonia. Armed with Dandelion, his talking sword, he fights his way across Overworld and Netherworld, two very different realms chock-full of adventures, dangers, and unforgettable characters: Rala, the beautiful girl Wolperting who cultivates a hazardous relationship with death; General Ticktock, the evil commander of the Copper Killers; Ushan DeLucca, the finest and most weather-sensitive swordsman in Zamonia; Volzotan Smyke, the corpulent Shark Grub; Rolv of the Forest, a Wolperting who can pass through the White Fire; Yggdra Syl, the guardian of the Nurn Forest and its talkative animals; Professor Abdullah Nightingale, inventor of the Chest-of-Drawers Oracle; and, the worst of luck, the deadly Metal Maiden.

Walter Moers creates an inspiring, multi-faceted dichotomy of Overworld and Netherworld in this highly-engrossing book. Rumo, the novel's legendary hero, is a fearless - yet still very personable - protagonist faced with dangerous new forms of trouble on every other page. The book is fascinating, enthralling, emotional and mesmorizing, all at once. I highly recommend this and The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear to anyone who loves adventure and amazing new worlds...

Of course, no one can really create a new world in physical form, but Walter Moers just about does. You are transported into a world with beings and objects much like our own, but many that are completely off the charts. Everyone, no cliche intended, but everyone ages 1-100 will LOVE this book!

I have a library of over 200 books, and I can honestly say that this is the best book that I have ever read! If you're a fan of Douglas Adams, or Jim Butcher, this book will be awesome for you. If you like books at all, you will love this book! It has action, romance, drama, comedy and adventure. It is for ages 14, and up. I just can't stress enough that this is the best book that I have ever read!!!

I have read all of Walter Moers works, and they are all incredible. Walter Moers' books have shown me that he simply loves to write, more so than any other author I have had the privilege to read. He uses a staggering vocabulary, but never leaves you dumbfounded. I loved The 13 1/3 lives of Captain Bluebear; such a great story with drama, humor, adventure, suspense. Rumo has all of these with a better plot, and a greater driving point. Read these books, they will instantly take you out of our world, and into the wonders of Zamonia.

I had such a good time with this book. It's more lighthearted than LOTR but contains more substance than Harry Potter. Where LOTR is learned and erudite, Rumo is clever and witty. A lot of satire and outright humor, and each character and place has its own back story. This adds to the length of the book, but I still didn't want it to end! It does have some graphic violence and some characters are killed off in unappetizing ways, so be prepared, but it's nothing that detracts from the overall story. I liked it enough to run out and buy the author's other book, the 13 and 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear.

Rumo is a Wolperting. When he follows his nose to the city of his people he finds the love of his life. One day, everyone is gone,including his sweetie. Will love prevail?

This book has received rave reviews from my kids, nieces, nephews and the children of friends. I am amazed by the enthusiasm for reading it has created in a large age range (8-13 years old). Despite the fact that this book is quite long, my son (10 years old) chose to read it twice to make sure he did not miss any details. This was surprising given the fact that he would usually choose to read cartoons or not read at all. I would highly recommend both this book and the Captain Blue Bear book that was the first in the series.

I enjoyed this book but do not think it will appeal to the average reader. It took me through an arduous journey in wild imaginary lands filled with complicated, dangerous and comical characters. I will most likely read other books by this author.

If you want to escape to a world of wonder and excitement then Rumo will take you there. Full of action and adventure-you will root for the little Whelp from the very first page.
