This is a truly captivating story that won't let you walk away easily! Brendan FRASER's skillful reading was a great choice for the producers and drew me in instantly, constantly giving me a mental pictures of the characters from the movie edition of Ink Heart, and kept the characters clear and distinct through the whole book. I wish a second movie could be made of this book, because there's so much to experience. Cornelia Funke is an excellent writer.
I decided to purchase the book and read it rather than continue listening to the jarring and sometimes unintelligible narration of this audiobook. For a book that is literally about people who read so beautifully they pull the characters from the pages, this was a very strange choice in narrator. Sometimes he seems in such a hurry to get the words out when he's doing voices, that you can't even understand what he's saying. I'm definitely disappointed.
The story is wonderful, and I enjoy returning to it even now was an adult. The whole series is very enjoyable.
I throughly enjoyed Brenon Fraizer's reading except for thr sighing at the beginning. Having seen the movie it brought the characters more to life. There were a few plot twists I didn't expect. Can't wait to read Inkdeath to see how everything is tied up. Fenolio does need to straighten up though.
The new narrator was hard to get used to, fortunately either his accents got less exaggerated as the book went or I just got used to it to keep my sanity. His rendition of Eleanor's voice however was completely unforgivable. The story itself was wonderful, a great sequel. I highly recommend
Brendan Fraser's reading of Inkspell by Cornelia Funke is absolutely brilliant. This time instead of the characters coming out of the book of Inkheart, we are taken into the world of Inkworld, where the story takes place. We are introduced to the Megalomaniac Orpheus who is able to read people in and out of books but is unable to read himself into Inkworld which is his greatest desire. Reggie, Mo, Farid and Dustfinger meet new allies, new enemies as well as old, namely Basta and Capricorns mother Mortola. A brilliant sequel which is better than Inkheart and Fraser's performance as narrator brings the story to life.
The music is really loud, Bredan Frasier was WONDERFUL, (as always.) great story, Cornelia Funke is wonderful and I love it 10,000%! Not a fan of his Elinor voice but still, an A++++++! -E-S & K-M
