Great Read for Kids and Adults Alike

by debski67 on Oct 26, 2008

I read this book because my teenage daughter has been begging me to read it for a couple years and I am currently taking a children's lit course which finally gave me the opportunity to read it. I am very pleased that I did. The book is a quick read for its length, it keeps you engaged and wanting to know what comes next. I also like that it expresses the power of the written word in a way that is exciting to children. Another perk, as a future educator, is that at the beginning of each chapter there is an excerpt from another well-known children's literary work which may entice children to read the classics.

Worth sticking with

by Lindsay, TheBookVlogger on Jun 27, 2008

I first decided to read this book when I'd heard it was becoming a movie. At first it was a struggle for me to get into the story. No matter how much I read I just couldnt get hooked. There isn't a lot of action through most of the story. At least not heart-thumping action. However, I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. It definetly picked up in the end and really started to hold my attention. More then anything it's worth reading just for the second book.


inkheart comes alive

by msaphra on May 23, 2007

This was one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. It looks at what happens when fairy tale characters suddenly find themselves in our modern day world, and the power of the written word. The narrator (I believe it is Lynne Redgrave) made the story and characters leap from the page, so that it was like seeing a movie (kind of like the plot of the book itself!). It was a very exciting book, and having looked forward to the sequel(Inkspell), I was very disappointed when a different narrator was used for it.


A New Favorite

by VoraciousReader on Apr 11, 2007

Meggie's father Mo has an interesting talent: when he reads aloud, things, and sometimes people, come out of their stories and into the real world! But now the evil Capricorn wants to use Mo's talents to bring himself great wealth and power. When Meggie realizes Mo is in danger, she is determined to save him. Can she do it? This is an enchanting story full of adventure and magic. Though there is the classic good vs. evil theme, several surprising twists keep you guessing what will happen next. The characters are vivid and delightful although they are not always who they first appear to be. Lightly magical, humorous, and fun, Inkheart will appeal to those who like adventure and fantasy and to anyone who ever wished that a story could come to life.
