"Even before there was a ship, the captain was already there. This journey began with him, you suspect, it will end with him too, and everything in between is the powdery flour of windmills, which could also be giants, grinding the bones and making bread out of them. Step up quietly, otherwise you will wake them."
The 15-year-old Caden is on a ship on which time is running sideways and which is weathered by millions of journeys that go back in time.
- But doesn't it all happen in his head?
He is part of a crazy expedition team in search of the deepest point on earth, the Mariana Trench. - Well, "expedition team"... The boundaries of reality become blurred in Caden.
- "What does that mean, he wants to kill you?"
Maybe he is a prophet!
Every year during the summer holidays, a group of young people from LesArt and the boy DT develops a scenic reading of a current youth book and performs it in the box in September. This year it is Neal Shusterman's novel "Kompass ohne Norden" ("Compass without North") that masterfully plays with the most diverse levels of reality.
Use of the novel "Kompass ohne Norden" by Neal Shusterman subject to the release of rights.
