One cruel night, Meggie's father reads aloud from a book called INKHEART-- and an evil ruler 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. Meggie must learn to harness the magic that has conjured this nightmare. For only she can change the course of the story that has changed her life forever.
This is INKHEART--a timeless tale about books, about imagination, about life. Dare to read it aloud.
This book was a lot of fun to read! Oh my gosh the loop holes in this story are pretty large, like nowhere do you get a solid age of Meggie, i guessed her to be around 12 or 13. Also in the beginning it sounded like the story was set in a midevil time period whan it is really set in the present time. Maybe i was the only one confused through the whole time but there were a couple others too that there seemed to be a small gap in the story. Not that i am complaining much it was just sometimes hard to follow along. But i would say in the end, it was a great read and i enjoyed it, a good mix of the "real world" and fantasy in a hefty 534 page novel. It is actually a kids novel for around 8-12 year old but i feel like older kids will get more out of it and the story then those that are 8. I would recommened it to someone who like fantasy/adventure book with a nice long story.
