Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Amazing, Delightful, Unforgettable

I can easily describe this book as that. The amazing plot and delightful characters make this book unforgettable.

About: One cruel night, young Meggie's Father, Mo, reads aloud from Inkheart and an evil ruler, named Capricorn, escapes the boundaries of fiction (along with other characters), and lands in their living room. Suddenly, Meggie is smack in the middle of the kind of adventure she has only read about in books.

Somehow, Meggie and Mo must learn to harness the magic that conjured this nightmare. Somehow, they must change the course of the story that has changed their lives forever.

-This book does have some occasional swear words, but not enough to make this not fun to read.
-One of the side characters in superstitious and continual talks about ghosts and curses.

All in all, this is an wonderful book that is amazingly written. Like I said above, with an amazing plot and delightful (and real) characters.

If you have any questions or comments about the book I'd love to answer and hear them. ☺

I love this book! The characters were great.

Have you read the next two books in the trilogy? What did you think of them? I didn't care for Inkspell and absolutely abhorred Inkdeath, but... that's just opinion. :)

I personal think the books got better as the sereis went on. Why don't you like them that much?

I ate this book up but I didn't read the others because I felt like the book was complete as it was and thought reading more would be too much. I did think she could have made the book way shorter, though.
