My review of Inkheart’s sequel…
Author: Cornelia Funke
Summary (B&N.com): Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of INKHEART, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past. Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. But the story is threatening to evolve in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.
My Review: First off, it wasn’t as good as its predecessor. That magic isn’t there, even though it has a magic of its own. In Inkspell, we are no longer in our world. That alone made it less likeable for me. I loved the idea of characters coming out off the book, not so much about going in it somehow. Secondly, Meggie annoyed me with her decisions in this book, I felt the need to smack her more than once because she didn’t realize that what she had was enough! But overall I liked it.
