Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

I must say Inkheart started a bit slow for me but I held out and became immersed in a fantastical adventure. Meggie's dad, a bookbinder named Mo, can enthrall you by reading out loud. He is so good at reading out loud that many years ago he "read" the villain Capricorn (along with some other characters) from a book called "Inkheart" into reality.... and from there the story unfolds. Meggie, Mo, Dustfinger, Elinor, Farid, Fenoglio all became so dear to me. The idea of reading a book and having its characters come to life was just amazing to me. The love of books, words, reading and literature in general is a big factor throughout this story- Ms. Funke is very passionate towards books. Although there were some parts that were a bit dark, there was nothing too terribly suspenseful, yet it was exciting enough to keep you interested throughout the book. I will admit that sometimes I found that it dragged just a tad, but upon reading the whole story I realized that every page was essential to the storyline. If you enjoy fantasy, in particular children’s fantasy, then this book will keep your attention.

I cannot wait to begin reading this series. Not sure why, but recently YA/Middle Readers books have been so much fun for me.

Must be a phase, eh?

Hi Nely. I've just finished reading Inkheart and unfortunately the book wasn't to my liking. I think maybe it lacked the adrenalin to keep me reading enthusiastically.
