Description-
  • Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours. This is the story of young Meggie, who lives a quiet life alone with her father Mo, a bookbinder, until one cruel night when Mo reads aloud from Inkheart, and an evil ruler named Capricorn escapes the boundaries of fiction and lands in their living room. Suddenly, Meggie is smack in the middle of the kind of adventure she has only read about in books. Somehow, Meggie and Mo must learn to harness the magic that conjured up this nightmare. Somehow they must change the course of the story that has changed their lives forever. This is Inkheart, a timeless tale about books, about imagination, about life.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Cornelia Funke's second stunning novel joins a body of literature that challenges the conventions of realistic fiction. Consider the premise that characters can jump from stories into real life and vice versa. Add to this fluidity the notion that the author can create an alternative ending to be read into the story. Inkheart is an intriguing, fast-paced, and provocative fantasy. Marvel as 12-year-old Meggie and her bookbinder father grapple with wily villains, unsettling accomplices, and "drop-in" characters, as they seek to achieve stability in their world and family. Lynn Redgrave is a superb narrator. Her vocal repertoire richly supports Funke's myriad characters. As personalities unfold over time, so Redgrave's passion brings depth to each. Both the story and the narration underscore the idea that power comes not from fear and might but from communication and love. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2004 ALA Notable Recording and YALSA Selection, 2004 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
