Meggie is a girl who lives with her dad, Mo, who repairs books. He also makes books come to life when he reades them, literally. Soon, she finds herself in her own fairytale, and in every fairytale, there is a villain, and in this case, it's Capricorn. Meggie will have to use the skill that brought Capricorn into this world, to make him dissapear once again.

I loved reading this book! I could just imagine myself in Meggie's shoes. I really felt like i was in the story! Whenever I think about this book, I remember all of the adventures I had reading it. I just really loved the story. This is one of those books I will always remember.

This was the second book I read by Cornelia Funke, and I fell in LOVE with it almost from the first page!
Her characters are fabulous, her settings so rich with detail and drive that I felt I was right along side Mo as he drove, as he walked through book stores and as he lovingly touched each book like it was alive.  
So much about this series is wonderful, before I was even done with this one I had Inkspell ordered...but I had to then wait several years for Inkdeath to be printed in English (an odd turn of events...usually we're first!)
It was wonderful to RETURN to Inkheart to be with the characters again for each new release and especially for the release of the movie!

One night, Meggie looks out her bedroom window to see a man, who calls himself Dustfinger and refers to her father Mo as Silvertongue, standing in the yard, and after that her life is never the same again. Dustfinger and his marten Gwin, she soon learns, come from another world, a world that exists only between the pages of a book. Nine years ago, Mo accidently read them out of their home along with the villain of the story- Capricorn.

Years ago, this book was one of my favorites, and I decided to reread it after I read Inkdeath. I maintain that Inkdeath is the best book in the trilogy, but Inkheart does have a sort of magic to it that Inkdeath lacks. It is also most beautiful when read by someone who knows how the story is going to end, as there are occasional references to Meggie looking back on the events described years later.


 

All in all, the Inkworld Trilogy is an excellent fantasy, but Inkheart should be read by all book lovers, who will probably want to read it over and over again as I do- it gets better every time.

Inkheart is a book you will never want to put down, but at the same time you want to. You never want the story to end, because you can't possibly imagine an ending.

Meggie, Mo, and many other characters make the story so real that you feel as if you were read into the book yourself

With the sequel Inkspell, and the third one, Inkdeath, you will fall in love with this trilogy

Always look behind the pages of a book and do not dare to read out loud....

Mortimer is a bookbinder and has passed on his great love of books to his daughter Meggie, but he has never read aloud to her. When a stranger named Dustfinger appears at their home, Meggie's world turns upside down. She soon learns some startling truths --- about her mother's disappearance nine years earlier, and the mysterious book called INKHEART that her father tries desperately to hide at the book-filled home of Elinor, Meggie's great aunt. She learns that the reason Mo has never read aloud to her is because he has a secret, mysterious, dangerous gift --- when he reads aloud, objects and charaters come out of the books --- a skill he discovered when Capricorn, the dark villain of INKHEART, came into the world when Meggie was three. Teresa, Meggie's mother, disappeared at the same time, presumably into the story.

Capricorn uses Dustfinger, who is another character from the story, to lure Mo and Meggie to his hideout village; there Meggie sees a demonstration of her father's reading skill when he brings gold treasure out of TREASURE ISLAND and a young Arab boy out of the ARABIAN NIGHTS. When Dustfinger learns Capricorn's true plans, he helps Mo, Meggie, and Elinor escape over the hills. Mo searches out Fenoglio, the author of the book, and together they devise a plan to foil Capricorn's terrible schemes. But Meggie is recaptured along with Fenoglio, and Capricorn discovers that she, too, has the same magical gift. In a rousing finish, Fenoglio and Meggie find a way to foil Capricorn's plans --- with surprising results.

This is a wonderful book to read I promise you will not even think about stop reading this book!

From page to page from cover to cover you may think it's just a book. A basic old book and that's it. Yet, it's more than that. There is a gift. A gift so special it can lure the story out of it's pages and Meggie and her father, Mo or Mortimer, happen to be the one's with the gift!!! But, that's not all, because of this special gift Meggie, her father, and Meggie's aunt, Elinor soon find themselfs in the mist of this captivating story. Except, this time it's not them who get sucked in the story, it's the charactors who get sucked out of the story and into real life. But when Capricorn, the cruel leader of the story Inkheart, comes up with a very evil plan to destroy Meggie and her family, it's up to them to fix it.
