I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.
Ofelia and her mother is moving to be with her new step father. A horrible man who only married her mother so that she would give him a son. When Ofelia is lead to Faun by a fairy he tells her that she is a long lost princess and she has to pass 3 trials to come home. I would just like to note that there is a second plot to this story with a war and rebels but I didn't catch where and the book did not interest me enough to take the time to go back and find out.
2.5 stars. I just can't give it a higher rating than that. Honestly I only finished it because I forced myself to. It did get interesting near the end there. However I found this book dull for the majority of it. The ending was just bad and confusing. As I understand it, the movie came first and then the book. But I have never watched the movie so this is all about how I feel about the book. Also this book is marked as young adult, but I feel this is more a middle grade book but with adult violence. When I picked it up I thought it showed so much promise, but I am disappointed. It was one of those books that you are glad ended so you don't have to read it anymore. I'd also like to point out the war stuff was really not in my interest range.
How I choose my rating:
1* Did not finish, or hated it but forced myself to finish.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

Novelizations of movies can really be a hit or miss affair. The best ones take the events that happen within a film and expand upon them in ways only a novel can do - bringing readers into the thoughts of the characters within a film and showing those same events from a different angle or with extra bits that the film might not have had time to show. Unfortunately, most film novelizations don't do that - they to just be fairly strict prose conversions of the script. So, it's with that mindset that I approached this "novelization" of Guillermo del Toro's award-winning Pan's Labyrinth - I hesitate to call this book a novelization because Pan's Labyrinth came out thirteen years ago and most novelizations come out around the same time as the film they're novelizing. With that context, it might be best to consider this book a retelling of the story featuring in the film - a screen-to-page adaptation, if you will, by a talented author - Cornelia Funke. As is always the case with any adaptation, does the story still work when transferred to this new medium? In the case of Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun, the answer is yes and no.

Pan's Labyrinth is an R-rated film. Sure, it's a fairy tale, but it's a fairy tale aimed squarely at adults. It's filled with violence and horrific imagery and all manners of things one might not want children and young teens to be exposed to. So, naturally, you'd think any novelization/adaptation of Pan's Labyrinth would be aimed at adults. This doesn't appear to be the case with this book. Amazon classifies this book as a YA-novel, and that sounds about right. The prose is more simplistic than one might find in your normal, run of the mill Adult Fiction novel, but some of the words used in the book are more complex than you'd find in anything simpler than a YA-novel. So, in terms of writing, this is definitely a YA-novel. This opens up a question though - why write an adaptation of a film that was originally targeted towards adults and target it toward a younger demographic?

Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun walks this weird tight-rope between being true to the film and softening some of the edges. Nothing in the film is outright censored, but some of the more adult elements aren't really elaborated upon. There is violence in this book, and sometimes it's pretty brutal violence, but it's rarely given the kind of description that would match the horror that came with seeing it on the screen. To me, that feels a bit like a cop-out. I don't like it when stories have their rougher edges sanded down and it makes me want to wonder what the point in adapting this story is if you're gonna have to tweak elements of it to fit a new audience. To be fair to this book, though, not that much is changed in the vast scheme of things. The novel follows the film's plot pretty closely; certain elements are toned down a bit but nothing is really wholly missing. And, the horrific imagery and violence aren't really important to the story, per se, but it does feel just a bit ingenuous to tone them down, especially as the story does involve a literal civil war. Then again, that scene featuring the amputation of a rebel's leg is still in this book, so maybe things weren't really all that toned down. It's just a bit of a discordant mashup of tones for me. It's not book-killing or anything, but it's certainly one of the biggest things I noticed.

While I might question the point in this book existing given my previously mentioned points, it's not that the book is remotely bad. It's very well-written and well-paced and does nearly everything you'd want a novelization/adaptation of a film to do. Readers are taken into the heads of a number of different characters. Certain scenes are expanded upon or told from a new point of view. Funke utilizes the strengths of a prose novel to tell certain parts of the story in a way that a film couldn't really do. And, best of all, there are some interludes scattered throughout that expand upon the Underground Kingdom and elaborate upon how a number of the characters in the "real-world" storyline tie into the events of the "Underground Kingdom" storyline. Those interludes were probably my favorite part as, by nature, they could really feel like a surreal fairy tale and offered something genuinely new to this story that I'm very familiar with.

At the end of the day, Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun is an enjoyable read. As you read it, you may get confused at just who the book is for - is it for fans of the book? Is it for new readers? If so, is it for teenage readers? Adult readers? Does it even matter? Honestly, probably not. As is, it's nothing particularly special, but it's well-made. It expands upon the film in a number of ways - chiefly in those interludes that feature totally new material not seen in the film. Readers are taken into the minds of various characters, although the insight provided is never really as much as one would like - these insights pale in comparison to another novel adaptation of one of del Toro's films, The Shape of Water (written by Daniel Kraus) - though, I still enjoyed these insights quite a bit. I enjoyed this novel a fair amount; it's a quick read and it's fun to revisit this story from a new point of view. I wouldn't call it essential reading, but if you were ever curious about the film but found yourself frightened by some of the more severe imagery, this is a good way to experience the story. I'd still probably recommend watching the film a bit more than I'd recommend reading this book, but this is a pretty solid adaptation of it. ( )

So richtig zur Fantasy gehört dieses extrem düstere und auch brutale Buch von Cornelia Funke eigentlich nicht. Es bedient sich vielmehr, sehr bewusst, einem Set altbekannter mythischer Elemente: Der Faun, die Alraunenwurzel, die Kröte, und auch die Zahl drei ist wichtig...

Hauptsächlich spielt sich die Geschichte während des spanischen Bürgerkriegs in den 1940er Jahren ab. Protagonistinnen sind das Mädchen Ofelia und die junge Frau Mercedes. Antagonist ist Vidal, der grausame Capitan der Truppen Francos und seit Jüngstem zweiter Ehemann von Ofelias Mutter, der gesandt wurde, um fernab in einem Wald Widerstandskämpfer zu jagen. Mercedes spioniert für den Widerstand, Ofelia fürchtet und verabscheut ihren neuen Stiefvater. Nicht nur dies bringt die beiden zusammen, sondern Spuren in ein Reich unter den Wurzeln, in dem Ofelia einst Prinzessin Moana war, bis sie spurlos verschwand. Der Faun sucht sie seit mehr als dreihundert Jahren...

Eigentlich spannend, sprachgewaltig, aber wirklich eine extrem düstere Schilderung des spanischen Bürgerkriegs. Unerbittlich werden Graumsamkeiten erzählt, die man sich heute kaum noch vorstellen kann. das macht das Buch anstrengend, zumal Funke auch kleine Hoffnungen sofort wieder zunichte macht.

Toll vorgelesen von Guillermo del Toro - und Cornelia Funke selbst! Sie hat eine super Lesestimme. ( )

UNA NOVELA OSCURA Y MÁGICA, UNA INOLVIDABLE COLABORACIÓN ENTRE DOS DE LOS NARRADORES MAS RENOMBRADOS DE NUESTROS DÍAS.
EN UN REINO SUBTERRÁNEO, DONDE NO EXISTÍAN LAS MENTIRAS NI EL DOLOR, UNA PRINCESA SOÑABA CON LOS HUMANOS. UN DÍA ESCAPÓ A NUESTRO MUNDO, EL SOL BORRÓ SUS RECUERDOS Y LA PRINCESA MURIÓ, PERO SU ESPÍRITU ERA INMORTAL. EL REY NO SE DARÍA POR VENCIDO, TENÍA LA ESPERANZA DE QUE SU HIJA REGRESARA A CASA ALGÚN DÍA. EN OTRO CUERPO. EN OTRO TIEMPO QUIZÁS EN OTRO LUGAR. ESPERARÍA...HASTA SU ÚLTIMO ALIENTO, HASTA EL FINAL DE LOS TIEMPOS.

UN PORTAL A OTRO UNIVERSO DONDE NO HAY UN LÍMITE QUE DIVIDA LO REAL DE LO IMAGINARIO.

"CON LA MONUMENTAL ENCOMIENDA DE ADAPTAR UN COMPLEJO RELATO CINEMATOGRÁFICO A LAS PÁGINAS DE UNA NOVELA, DEL TORO Y FUNKE EVITARON SIMPLEMENTE DESCRIBIR LA PELÍCULA Y EN SU LUGAR HAN VUELTO A CONFECCIOAR LA NARRATIVA CON DESTREZA Y ELEGANCIA". KIRKUS

Cornelia Funkes neues Jugendbuch „Das Labyrinth des Fauns“ basiert auf dem oscarprämierten Film „Pans Labyrinth“ von Guillermo del Toro. Da ich den Film mit seiner magischen, aber auch sehr düsteren und traurigen Bildsprache liebe, war ich äußerst gespannt, wie Cornelia Funke den Stoff umgesetzt hat.

Durch ihre poetische und metaphorische Sprache gelingt es Cornelia Funke perfekt, die düstere Atmosphäre des Films aufzugreifen. Denn es ist keine schöne Welt, in die die 13jährige Ofelia hineingezogen wird. Die Grausamkeit des Franco-Regimes offenbart sich ihr bei ihrem Stiefvater Capitán Vidal, der seine Lebensfreude aus der Folterung von Menschen zieht. Auch bei ihrer Mutter Carmen, die dem Capitán verfallen ist, findet Ofelia keinen Trost mehr. Doch dann offenbart sich ihr ein Faun, der in ihr die lang vermisste Prinzessin Moanna erkennt. Um in ihr Königreich zurückkehren zu können, muss Ofelia drei Aufgaben meistern.

Wer nun glaubt, die fantastische Welt, in der sich Ofelia plötzlich wiederfindet, sei liebevoller und fröhlicher, der täuscht sich. Denn die Wesen, auf die das Mädchen während der Prüfungen trifft, stehen den Schrecken der realen Welt in nichts nach. Der Leser leidet mit Ofelia und fühlt die Beklemmung, die sich während des Lesens immer mehr ausbreitet, um dann in einem tragischen Höhepunkt zu münden. Und dennoch, durch das dramatische Ende blitzt ein Hoffnungsschimmer, der den Leser trotz aller Grausamkeit nicht völlig ohne Trost zurücklässt.

Die Geschichte um Ofelias Reise findet ihre Ergänzung durch eine Kurzgeschichte, die jedes Kapitel einläutet und dem Leser die Hintergründe der fantastischen Welt näher bringt. So erfährt der Leser z. B. mehr über den Faun oder auch über Ofelias Vater. Hervorzuheben sind die wundervollen Zeichnungen von Allen Williams, die den Kurzgeschichten voranstehen.

Gekrönt wird dieses lesenswerte Buch durch seine schöne Aufmachung. Der Umschlag überzeugt nicht nur durch seine gelungene Gestaltung, sondern auch durch die Haptik. Ein rundherum schönes Buch!

Fazit: Ein berührendes und poetisches Märchen, für das ich trotz einiger verstörender Szenen eine uneingeschränkte Leseempfehlung ausspreche. ( )
