The characters come alive when reading Inkheart out loud. Forefinger is a fire eating performer who tricks with fire are brilliant. Maggie and Mo read the characters to life, and Dustfingers Marten Gwin. Lynn Redgrave delivered a brilliant performance of Inkheart. The book is absolutely brilliant. Cornelia Funke is one of the better children's authors around. The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis was absolutely pathetic compared to the Inkheart trilogy.
Redgrave is so good you forget only one person is narrating. She brings to life this wonderfully written story. I carpool 6 boys (ages 8 - 13) to school and each of them was entranced. We are sad Ms. Redgrave did not narrate the following audio books in this series.
The story had so much detail that it got hard to listen to.
Yes, but it already was.
Intriguing, captivating, thrilling
All the characters were fantastic! I couldn't pick out a favorite. Lynn Redgrave was "spot on" for each character, but I think I could probably listen to her narrate the phone book!
I was captivated by the story and couldn't wait to see what adventure would befall them next.
Lynn Redgrave is fabulous as a narrator. I hope she does more readings. I really enjoyed this book and hope that the sequels are just as good. I wouldn't recommended to very young people, the bad guys are REALLY bad.
I recommend this story to everyone whether young or old because all the characters and all that goes on in this splendid story, there is something somewhere that I believe anyone and everyone could identify themselves.
Oh what an unfair question! I love them all, except Capricorn but we aren't meant to like him and that is good and well. Eleanor brought forth a lot of humor to me and so I will have to choose her as my favorite.
My favorite scene had to been... I can't say with out giving a spoiler ... Oh maybe I can without giving up too much... I like the dungeon scene and that's all I wil say.
Many scenes, many moments... I absolutely LOVE this story.
An enjoyable listen.
No. Lynn Redgrave is wonderful. I had to return the next book in series, ink spell, because the narrator was awful. I will have to read Inkspell and then listen to Inkdeath. Allen Courdener narrates and he was wonderful in The Book Thief!
Enjoyable for all ages.
The detail in this story is so explicit that you feel you are there in the story. Very well done.
I love the English accent
the most exciting part was when the shadow came
I think Lynn Redgrave didn't outstanding job
It took me a little while to get into this, but once there I thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly enjoyed the concept of characters from a story being read out of the book into our world.
