Inkheart (Film Edition)

With every word spoken, the story comes to life…

Meggie loves stories, but her father Mo refuses to read them to her. He hasn’t read a single book aloud since her mother mysteriously vanished years ago. But when a stranger knocks at the door one night, Mo is forced to reveal a breathtaking secret. When he reads, words come alive… and frightening characters step out of their pages. Suddenly, Meggie is living the kind of adventure she has only read about in books… and walking into a story where peril lurks at every turn. Reading has never been so exciting – or so dangerous. First in a brilliant trilogy, this is the dazzling movie edition of Cornelia Funke’s award-winning fantasy.

  • not for me

    Personally, I couldn’t get into it at all and found it a bit boring despite being excited to read it. I think the length put me off a bit.

  • Wow, this book is awesome. It’s certainly a page-turner, and it’s really suspenceful. Cornelia Funke is one of my favorite fantasy authors. Really great book.

    An amazing book filled with imagination and adventure, the power all readers secretly think they have, to read things to life. The First of an awesome trilogy.
