Meggie, now a young lady, knows nothing of her father's bizarre and powerful talent, only that Mo still refuses to read to her. Capricorn, a being so evil he would "feed a bird to a cat on purpose, just to watch it being torn apart," has searched for Meggie's father for years, wanting to twist Mo's powerful talent to his own dark means. Finally, Capricorn realizes that the best way to lure Mo to his remote mountain hideaway is to use his beloved, oblivious daughter Meggie as bait!
Cornelia Funkes imaginative ode to books and book lovers is sure to be enjoyed by fans of her breakout debut, The Thief Lord, and young readers who enjoyed the similarly themed The Great Good Thing by Roderick Townley. (Ages 10 to 15) --Jennifer Hubert
I recommend this book to anyone who can read. :)
A wonderful mix of fantasy, humor, bittersweet stories, and adventure, INKHEART pulls you in just as well as Mo can pull characters out of books.
Some books are good for their characters, but I felt the charcters were dry and very little of their actions seemed thought out.
I thought there would be more action but, man, was this story drawn out. Just not a very satisfying reading experience as plot points just spiraled and back tracked over and over. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Nancy Matz

This well-paced, 534 page book slips by surprisingly fast. It is certainly not a book for young children - it is much too dark, too scary for that. Read morePublished 22 days ago by RuthSophia
The Inkheart Trilogy is engaging and fanciful, and the story kept my attention. I even loved parts of the story, and if all the passages had been written with the same skill as... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Bleys A.
