    Krabat by Otfried Preußler review Ç 0 Krabat by Otfried PreußlI'm not really much of a fantasy reader I find it difficult to get into fantasy novels especially those set in medieval places it's kind of cliché but The Satanic Mill is definitely a special case with its 16th Century German scene By the way don't be put off by the Satan thing in the title; this is not a book promoting Satanism or anything like that This book is instead a powerful and unforgettable classic about avoiding darkness and finding the courage to escape something you know is wrong It reminded me a lot of the plot to the Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away but with its own magic that makes it uniueOne of the best things about this book is that it doesn't try too hard to impress its readers but instead relies on its language strange characters and imaginative prose t

    Krabat by Otfried Preußler review Ç 0 Krabat by Otfried PreußlAs I'm rereading my favorite books from childhood I find myself having to reset my rating system After reading The Satanic Mill for instance I see that some other books I noted as 5 stars are really 4 and some 4 stars are really 3This book is flat out good For a book about good and evil it's free of saccahrine and moralizing Economically written and tightly plotted there aren't anvils falling on your head indicating where the story is going And somehow the lack of flowery description makes the book vivid and compelling I remembered scenes from when I read 25 or 30 years ago They were so clear in my head that I was surprised to reread them as an adult and see that they were written very sparingly
