I am a self employed artist who listens to books while I work. I go through a very large selection of books because of it.
to drawn out goes on and on and on. should wrap up 2 plus hours earlier. reader is fairly strong story just doesn't seem to end
I LOVE THIS BOOK NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I READ IT!! I LOVE THE ANTICPATION OF WHAT IS COMING NEXT AND IT IS KEEPING YOU ON YOUR TOES!!!
THE STORY LINE IS AMAZING. IT IS ORIGNAL AND UNLIKE MANY OTHER BOOKS. I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THIS STORY!
LYNN DID AN AWESOME JOB OF BRINGING THE CARACTERS TO LIFE. SHE CAPTURED A PIECE OF THEM THEY CAN NOT BE REDONE!! EXCELLENT JOB!!
OFCOURSE. I AM AND ALWAYS WILL BE A FAN OF DUST FINGER. I LOVE HIM AND HIS CARACTER. SO THERE WERE DEFINETELY HIGH POINTS THAT MOVED ME.
OVERALL AWESOME!! DON'T GET ME WRONG THE SAMPLE YOU HEAR AND THE MOVIE HAS NOTHING ON THIS BOOK! THE MOVIE SUCKED BUT THIS BOOK THE ORIGNAL BOOK IS CAPTIVATING AND MOVING. IT BRINGS A SENSE OF ADVENTURE TO YOUR MIND AND A WORLD YOU DON'T GET TO EXPERIENCE OFTEN!!!
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.
