The Brothers Lionheart

by Astrid Lindgren
The Brothers Lionheart - Astrid Lindgren 8.46   266

Scotty's big brother Jonathan tells him about Nangiyala, a land on the other side of the stars, where you go after you die. Because Scotty is little and afraid and he's sick and soon he'll die. "In Nangiyala you have adventures from morning to evening and at night, too. Because it's in Nangiyala that all sagas happen.", Jonathan tells Scotty. It sounds so good that Scotty doesn't want to be without Jonathan in Nangiyala, where together they will become the Brothers Lionheart.

The Brothers Lionheart is one of the best children's fantasy books I've ever read. Although this book is a children's book, adults can enjoy it too - I've read this book a couple of times and I'll probably read it again in the near future, because it's a good book. In my opinion difficult things are handled exceptionally well in this book. It's a fascinating and moving book about brotherly love and death. The story is scary, but it's also comforting. This book makes its reader think about these things and that's a good thing, because there can never be too many challenging books. If you haven't read The Brothers Lionheart, you should read it, because it's a beautifully written book. I can highly recommend this book to all fantasy fans.
