The Neverending Story is a German fantasy novel by Michael Ende, first published in 1979 under the title Die unendliche Geschichte. The standard English translation, by Ralph Manheim, was first published in 1983. The novel was later adapted into several films. The majority of the story takes place in the parallel world of Fantastica (Phantásien in the original German version; referred to as Fantasia in the films), a world being destroyed by the Nothing, which represents and constitutes people's lack of imagination in the real world. The first protagonist is a young warrior, who is asked by the sick Empress to set off and find the cure for their world. The other protagonist is a boy from the real world, a reader of the novel with the same title, for whom the story gradually becomes more and more realistic. - Read more: Identifying first editions of The Neverending Story (1st edition 1983 hardback, Never-ending Story)

  "This is one of my favorite books. It is as strange as it is wonderful. A boy finds a book and halfway through the story he becomes a character in the book. This is a very clever and beautiful story."
