Description

Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world.

Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.

This is the story of young Meggie, who lives a quiet life alone with her father Mo, a bookbinder, until one cruel night when Mo reads aloud from Inkheart, and an evil ruler named Capricorn 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.

Somehow, Meggie and Mo must learn to harness the magic that conjured up this nightmare. Somehow they must change the course of the story that has changed their lives forever.

This is Inkheart, a timeless tale about books, about imagination, about life.

For ALL ages

Don't be fooled -- this might be a "kids book", but it is a great read for all ages. I was a little hesitant to give this one a try, but it took only a few minutes into the book to know I made the right choice. The reader was truly excellent, bringing a wide range of characters to life (and more importantly, keeping them all separated, no mean task with a big cast!) and the story kept me enraptured from start to end. It has a little bit of everything -- fantasy, a touch of terror, and touch of romance, a great deal of mystery, good guys, bad guys, downright evil villains, anti-heroes, heroes, and a happy ending (but not so happy as to be saccharine). Well worth the credit, thanks to other reviewers who convinced me to give this book a go.

Word Magic

Anyone who enjoys the Jasper Fford books will catch the "Word Magic" in this book. I always enjoyed the concept of literary characters jumping in and out of books... particularly when I am listening to one being read to me by someone like Lyn Redgrave. The irony is perfect. With respect to the story itself, it was such a great page turner, I took a vacation day to finish it! Redgrave's narration is elocution at its best and is as seamless as story.
Enjoy this one Folks - I certainly did!

inkheart

I really enjoyed both the story and the narration. I became interested because my granddaughter was reading the book and I wanted to share it with her. I was pleasantly surprised at the level of what she was reading (10 years old). Subsequently I read the book and was happy to see the congruence. I would recommend this book strongly.The narrator was great!

EXCELLENT!!

Excellent book that kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning! Funke takes you into a fantasy world like no other.. not into a world unknown but one brought to present day. When Meggie's father Mo reads out loud, he brings characters into the present giving you an exciting view from the characters in a book. This one you won't regret listening to!! BREATHTAKING!!

A book about books

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh Yes, without a doubt. This book is wonderful , esp for people who like books about books. This book is not just for children. Any adult will enjoy this just as much or perhaps more.

What did you like best about this story?

I most enjoyed how much the main characters like Meggie, Mo, Elinor adored books sooo very much. They respected books and cared for them to the centre of their souls. Books were as much part of them as an arm or a leg. Their lives were surrounded by books and they got great comfort from books and were happier because of having books in their lives.
Books were there to be cherished and they shared their joy of books with each other.

Which character – as performed by Lynn Redgrave – was your favorite?

I cannot pick one , I have to pick three. Mo, Meggie and Elinor.. It was just wonderful listening to her. I could just picture them in my head.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book makes me so happy, I have it in multiple formats. I never tire of reading it. If you love books, I do mean love,then this is the book for you. Books are magical and this one is especially magical.

Any additional comments?

This is a story about magic , love of books, family, sharing a love of books with those we most love, good guys, and bad guys . It is so wonderful !!!!!!!!

Fantastic with marvelous characters!

Cornelia Funke has come up with the right formular for giving kids thrills and not nightmares. The European settings are beautiful and give a touch of 'otherness' to make it real, yet special. The characters are unique and intriguing yet with enough 'humanness' to afford kids closeness. This story takes unexpected turns in every chapter with would give a reluctant reader the 'pull' into this book, which is what the story is all about, rather characters being pulled out of books with some pretty nasty consequences. But don't just take my word for it. Read this and try The Lord Thief another great book!

Great for kids and adults

I downloaded this book for our car travels over the holidays. My kids (ages 8 & 12) and my husband and I enjoyed the book. Finding something that the whole family can listen to and enjoy can be a challenge. With Inkheart, we had an interesting premise, well developed characters, and an excellent narration.

I can see us listening to it again somewhere down the road.

children's book

I'm writing this review purely for ADULT LISTENERS who, like me, enjoy listening to a good YA/children's story now and then...the kind of book that takes you away, makes you feel like a kid on an adventure again, erases the pressures of everyday life for a bit.

This book is not one of those. It's just too simple, flat, and predictable. It is not funny and embarrassingly engrossing like Jim Dale's reading of Harry Potter, nor intruiging, exciting, magical, intelligent and stimulating like Phillip Pullsman's Unabridged 'His Dark Materials' Trilogy .
This one really is a kiddies book, and although I think that the narrator is superb I cannot make myself finish listening to this.

I gave it three stars anyway because I'm sure that if you get this for your child, or even if you listen to it with a child, you will get some enjoyment out of it.

Wonderful Roadtrip Book

I listened to Inkheart with my children ages 6 and 9 on a cross-country trip this summer and we all loved it, a journey within a journey. The characters are wonderful and the story is well written. There are definitely some intense moments which are on the dark side for the younger audience, as well as some slower paced sections that might not entertain the shorter attention spans. The plot is intriguing and terrific for all book lovers, adults and kids alike- although having said this, kids with experience in complex and lengthy stories will like it the best (ones who can listen to or read Harry Potter for example.) Overall an enjoyable listen, Lynn Redgrave's voice is made for reading aloud, and highly recommended!

most wonderful villian

I am an adult who loves chidlrens fiction, and this book rates at the top of some of my favs. I just love the villians in this book. They are scary, but not terrifying. I love her use of description, it's just enough that you know exactly what she's thinking without getting bogged down in the building of the characters in ones mind. I just love the way she writes. She truly brings you into the book as the story develops.

I highly recommend this book for older kids, but not young ones. My children are relatively young and were a little afraid of some of the characters, but I think when they are a little older they will fall in love with this book as much as I have.

Ein lachendes und ein weinendes Auge...

... habe ich ja schon:

Einerseits freue ich mich immer wieder, wenn ich mir 'Inkheart' (ungekürzt) anhöre und auf den Schwingungen der wunderbaren Stimme von Lynn Redgrave mit Meggie und Mo den bösen Capricorn jage. Andererseits ist es (für mich persönlich) sehr anstrengend, meine Englishkenntnisse zu 'entrosten', da der wunderbare Weltbestseller v. Cornelia Funke leider, leider nicht auf deutsch erhältlich ist bei audible.de - hoffentlich können die Teammitglieder dieser innovativen und prakischen Einrichtung schnell die Rechte klären und eine professionelle Synchronsprecherin entführt uns auf deutsch in die fantastische Bücherwelt von 'Tintenherz'. Mir wäre am liebsten keine Theater- oder Fernseh-Schauspielerin, die bringen es stimmlich oft nicht im Ansatz so vielschichtig rüber. Dieses Buch solle auch auf deutsch nicht vorgelesen, sondern <i>erzählt</i> werden!

Für das Buch selbst würde ich eh fünf Sterne geben, aber das Hörbuch verdient sie m.E. ebenso! Man darf nur nicht verwechseln, dass das amerikanische English über andere Klangmuster und Betonungsschemata verfügt als man es vom Deutschen her gewohnt ist. Aber allein schon die vielen Stimmen, die Mrs. Redgrave für die verschiedenen Charaktere in 'Inkheart' erschafft - das ist manchmal, als ob man sich mitten zwischen vier, fünf Wesen aufeinmal befindet, so schnell 'schaltet' diese Künstlerin zwischen den Personen hin und her. Sie bringt es sogar fertig, dass sich die Rollen ggs. unterbrechen ohne dass die Dynamik ins Stocken gerät.
Wirklich gekonnt!

Schönes Buch - Gut gelesen!

Ein sehr schönes Buch! Die Geschichte überzeugt, ist gut geschrieben (bzw. in diesem Fall auch gut ins Englische übersetzt worden). Auch die Lesung - übrigens von einer Britin und nicht einer Amerikanerin - ist hervorragend und lässt die Geschichte richtig lebendig werden. (Meiner Meinung nach auch gut verständlich für non-native speaker wie mich).
Fazit: Unbedingt hören!

Super gesprochen

Schöne Story und sehr gut gelesen. Der Sprecherin gelingt es jeder Hauptfigur eine eigene Stimme zu geben und dadurch werden die Figuren noch lebendiger, als sie eh schon beschrieben sind. Man hasst Noseface, verachtet natürlich die anderen Bösen und fiebert mit unseren Helden.

Excellent apart from Dustfinger

As many many others I love the whole Inkworld stories with my favorite character Dustfinger, of course!
After the books in German I started buying and listening to the audio books in Englisch. The reading is very good apart from Dustfinger who, to me, in this version rather sounds like a grumpy old man instead of a young longing and partly desperate juggler so many people fancy. That's really unlucky and disappointing.
Therefore I substrate one star. Elenor in contrary is read awesome...

Die Figuren erhalten ihre Persönlichkeit

Ich habe dieses Buch bereits in deutsch gelesen und wollte die englische Version nutzen um mein Englisch zu verbessern - was ich fand war viel mehr. Alle Figuren haben durch die phantastische Art des vorlesens Persönlichkeit bekommen - die Figuren waren fast real.Ich kann dieses Hörbuch nur wärmstens empfehlen.Viel Spaß, lassen Sie sich in die Tintenwelt entführen!

Saugut und packend

Auch als "Erwachsener" ließ ich mich gerne und tief in Cornelia Funkes Fantasie-Welten entführen. Zutreffend die Textstelle, dass man bei einem packenden Buch sich immer wird an die Situation erinnern können, an dem man es zum ersten Mal las: ich radelte im Nebel auf Gomeras Bergstraßen.Die Figuren versprühen LEBEN (auch wenn sie in diesem Fall "nur Buchwesen" sind) und ich freue mich auf den Nachfolgeband.Warum nicht mehr davon auch auf Deutsch??

Sehr schöne Geschichte, auch für Erwachsene, gut zum Englischlernen

Ein Kinder- bzw. Jugendbuch, an dem auch Erwachsene Freude haben, wenn ihnen das Thema Fantasy liegt. Als Hörbuch von Lynn Redgrave gelesen, die so wunderbar die unterschiedlichen Charaktere vorträgt, ist es ein echter Genuss und nebenbei sehr gut zum Englischlernen geeignet.

Super

Ich habe erst 2,5h gehört, bin aber sehr begeistert von der englischen Fassung. Das Englisch ist sehr gut zu verstehen, ohne dass es langweilig wird. Die Sprecherin bringt sehr gut die unterschiedlichen Charaktere zur Geltung (und das, wo ich doch absoluter Fan des deutschen Tintenherz-Hörbucherzählers Rainer Strecker bin).
Also: wirklich sehr zu empfehlen!

Enjoyable but sometimes painfully slow

At the beginning I enjoyed the book and found the story quite unique. Additionally Lynn Redgrave is extraordinary! Her voice differs for each character from warmhearted to mean and nasty. However, the longer I listen to the story the less I started to care about it. It just seemed that the story dragged on and on, the same sub plots just repeating themselves. I think this book could have easily fit in about 300 pages and probably would have been a lot better if it had some scenes taken out. In this case I vote for an abridged version as it is an entertaining story, which is just too long.

Eine düstere, spannende Geschichte

Gelesen ist die Story sehr flüssig und gut, die Stimmen passen zu den einzelnen Personen und man freut sich aufs Weiterhören. Das "very British" der Sprecherin Lynn Redgrave ist sehr gut zu verstehen. Die Kinderbuchautorin Cornelia Funke hat hier eine düstere und spannende Welt entstehen lassen, die nicht unbedingt kindgerecht ist. Daher "nur" 4 Sterne.
