Publisher's Summary

Momo lebt am Rande einer Großstadt in den Ruinen eines Amphitheaters. Sie besitzt nichts als das, was sie findet oder was man ihr schenkt, und eine außergewöhnliche Gabe: Sie hat immer Zeit und ist eine wunderbare Zuhörerin. Eines Tages treten die grauen Herren auf den Plan. Sie haben es auf die kostbare Lebenszeit der Menschen abgesehen. Momo ist die Einzige, die ihnen noch Einhalt gebieten kann.

Gert Heidenreich entführt den Hörer mit seiner warmen, dunklen Erzählstimme in Momos Welt.

Well Worth Your Time

My first attempt at listening to an audio book in German. I chose this book because it's an old favourite that I wanted to re-read anyway. No problem - the reading performance is excellent; very clear, the words easy to distinguish. And the story itself still good, and as poignant today as it was 30-40 years ago when I first read it, about how trying to save time can lead to the exact opposite. (Why don't we ever learn??)

The reader makes the whole story better

I had seen the movie as a kid and even read the book. But this audible was the best. the story is beautiful and makes you think about the way you live but even better was Gert reading. His voice is calming has many different voices and really bring the story to life.
I highly recommend this audible to everyone who enjoys to listen :)

It's an amazing story!

I read Momo when I was 12 years old and now I am two times old than that. I am learing German so I bought this Deutsch Hörbuch, amazing story and high quality performance made me happy!

This book should be made into a movie!

The voice of Gert Heidenreich is so warm and it really makes the reader listen. It feels like a grandfather is telling the story only and only to you! You should buy this, worth every penny!

Charmant und verzaubert

Als Kind hatte ich immer vor dem Film ,Momo’ sehr viel Angst. Nach vielem ringen und überlegen, kam ich drauf das Hörbuch mir zu kaufen und bin so froh, dass ich es getan hab.

Der Erzähler ist fantastisch und bringt Leben in jede Silbe und jeden Buchstaben. Eine wahrlich schöne Vertonung eines wunderschönen Buches.

Disappointingly in German

But it is a wonderful story, full of powerful metaphors and lessons for everyone! How important is the power of listening and how ridiculous is the idea of saving time?

When time disappears…

A great classic story from Ende, I was looking to find it in English so my kids could listen to it too, unfortunately they don’t speak German. I haven’t listened to a German book in ages, I loved the narration and beautiful storytelling, this book is a reminder of how important it is what we do with our time, and how we create life in our hearts. With a narrator like this I was reminded how beautiful the German language can be when expressed with tonality and soft notes.

Nicht nur für Kinder

Es ist wirklich die Wahrheit, dass dieses Buch nicht für Kindern geschrieben ist, sonder für das Kind, das im Jeder lebt. Wunderschön geschrieben und gesprochen, die Innerhalb hält einem Unterricht, der für alle Wertvoll ist. Wenn jemand nicht genug Zeit an so einem Buch anzuhören hat, ist es zwei Mal so wichtig es anzuhören.
