blo Teens Read and Write: Inkheart

Monday, August 17, 2009


For a while I was truly a bit afraid to read this book out loud. Of course, you'll have to read it to see what I mean.

Meggie and her father live a normal, book lovers life; until a villain from their favorite book escapes the pages and lands straight in their living room. All of a sudden, Meggie is thrown in the middle of a world she's only read about. She must learn how to change a story that's already been written.

This book starts with a bang in the very first chapter. In fact, it was probably the book that got me caught up in the intriguing world of fantasy. It is a fresh idea that takes a book lover to places-well, places they only read about.

Although the ending to this book didn't quite prepare me for a sequel, do to the fact it seemed so resolved, it definitely wasn't disappointing. One of my favorite lines in the book is the last sentence. "As Moe had said: writing stories is a kind of magic too." This book isn't only fun for thrill seeking readers, but gave me, as a wannabe writer some food for thought.

To cap it all off, I do personally recommend this book, but of course, you'll have to read it yourself to come to your own opinion. I have read Inkheart at least three times in the course of a year, and I like it so much I will probably read it many, many more times.

Great review, thanks! I've wanted to pick this book up, but haven't yet! Hope to soon, though! I've seen the movie and loved it!

I loved Inkheart. It seems like forever since I've read it. I haven't read the last one yet but I'm going to soon.

The premise sounds sort of like the children's book Jumanji... is it similar?

Great review Anna. This is one of my all time favorite books. What did you think of the movie vs. the book?

Well, I did see the movie, and if I didn't compare it at all to the book I thought it was great; but of course I did compare and I'll have to say I'm not the biggest fan of the movie. In my opinion, the book blew the movie out of the water.

Thank you all for commenting. This really is one of my favorite books. As to Jumanji, I think this book is actually quite a bit different. I suppose there are similarities, but in the long run Inkheart is pretty original.
