Publisher's Summary

Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of Inkheart, the book whose characters came to life and changed her life forever.

But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval inkscape once more.

Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. There they meet Inkheart's author, Fenoglio, now living within his own story. But the tale is much changed, and threatening to evolve in ways none of them would ever have imagined. Will Meggie, Farid, and Fenoglio manage to write the wrongs of a charmed world? Or is their story on the brink of a very bad ending?

Great book, rough narration

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 is brilliant!

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.

loved listening

Would you consider the audio edition of Inkspell to be better than the print version?

in this case yes ... Brendon Fraser's interpetation was very enjoyable

Have you listened to any of Brendan Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first performance I have listened to ... I will be more inclined to select a book if he is the performer, I was totally captivated by his interpetation/performance. He is a wonderful storyteller.

Brendan Fraser is AMAZING!

What made the experience of listening to Inkspell the most enjoyable?

I struggled through reading Inkheart, and had my doubts about listening to the sequel...but Brendan Fraser is the best reader I have ever listened to. He nails the character's voices and the little nuances of mood and energy. Even the cadence of his voice changes to have an amazing effect. I am just disappointed that he did not read all three books! I will, however, find every audio book he has done and buy it!

silky voice

OK, I read the other reviews and was sad to read that people didn't enjoy Brendon Frazier's interpretation. His voice is silky. I personally didn't agree with some of his accents (Finolio sounds like some one who is from Brooklyn/East coast and shouldn't he be from Italy?) but loved how into it Brendon got into it. The way he read this is like listening to the character Mo reading this--the characters came alive for me.
