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.
It is a great idea for a book, but it just wasn't particularly well excecuted.
I felt like it really dragged.
I'm not super excited to read the next one.

If you have a sensitive child, or had a recent death in the family, this is not the book you want. Maybe another time, or another kid, but not my child and not this book right now. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Anony
