I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Mio, My Son

Cover of Mio, My Son.

Mio, my Mio. A book for children, with heart-breaking beauty. The beauty is in how it uses fairytale and lyrical resonance to spin a story that is both familiar and strange. It meant a lot to me: The unhappy boy who runs away from home, only to find out that he’s the prince of a magical realm – but the realm is in trouble. There is love in every word. It’s This Is How You Lose The Time War, only for children.


Wenn nur der Tod nicht so schwer wΓ€re und wir nicht so klein und einsam.
