"You can be envious and still be a good man at the same time."
Re-reading this wonderful book was really great. This is one of the first books I remember reading that really transported me to another world. When my teacher read this book to my class, everyone was completely absorbed in the story. We stopped class for a whole day to finish this book. I felt that same felling reading it even now. This book has a wonderful tale to tell that it conveys through dark themes, unlike other children's books. I'm really glad I read this again because I feel like this book, like other important books helped shape me into the person I am today. I think about this book and its message a lot and if you decided to read this I can almost guarantee you will feel the same way. ( )

Echt één van de mooiste boeken die ik in tijden heb gelezen. Het is me door meerdere mensen aangeraden als hun favoriete jeugdboek en ik denk dat het de mijne ook zou zijn geweest als ik de kans had gehad het te lezen als kind. Het verhaal draait om twee broers die elkaar door dik en dun zo liefdevol bejegenen, hun relatie is het hart van het boek en ook zeker hartverwarmend. Het grootste gedeelte van het verhaal speelt zich af een fantastisch hiernamaals: Nangijala. Hier lijken de broers na hun overlijden op aarde een nieuw, licht en eenvoudig bestaan op te kunnen bouwen. Al snel blijkt hun prille leven op zijn kop te worden gezet door een dictator die hun vallei wil veroveren. In de strijd tussen onderdrukking speelt een leger, een verzet, een draak en een reuzeslang een rol. Dit is voor onze hoofdpersoon allemaal veel te spannend, maar dankzij zijn grote broer voelt hij zich dusdanig gesterkt om met dan wel voor hem zich er een weg door heen te banen. Naast spannend, eerlijk, fantasierijk, mooi en liefdevol, is het boek ook door en door verdrietig. De broers willen gewoon een rustig en vredig leven en kunnen dit zelfs in het hiernamaals niet vinden. De personages laten je niet los en brengen het verhaal compleet tot leven! Prachtig om te lezen♡ ( )
