    1. I really wanted to give this book 4 stars But my conscience got the better of me so 3 stars it is There were some things in this book that genuinely disturbed me, and I m going to point them outBefore I do, though, I have to tell you, I loved the book over all But I m probably not going to sound like itFirstly, there are language issues with this book Farid uses the B word twice, and quite a few of the other characters use the D word a lot The D word was in the first book a bit, but not nearly [...]

    3. After enjoying Inkheart, the first book in this trilogy, Inkspell was a huge disappointment First, I thought Meggie s character suffered a tremendous loss in her falling in love with Farid She became less independent and less self reliant Their relationship struck me as unbelievable, as well, which angered me to think of kids leaving this book with the idea that relationships work like Meggie s and Farid s Writers of young adult fiction should be responsible Further, I felt the writing dropped [...]


    4. Cornelia, you need a better editor Your editor would tell you to figure out which characters are essential and kill off the rest The difficulty with the book is that it s written for younger kids, but it is too complicated, not all of the storylines are as riveting as the rest, and there are too many complicated emotions for young readers to comprehend or enjoy The characters are a bit static and thus predictable , as well This isn t to say that the emotions aren t realistic, or that the charact [...]


    5. I like that the story got complex with the second volume It didn t fall into cliche storylines or plots That said, this book felt really long to me And the story felt rather loose Like not a lot was happening, given how long I spent listening to it I m willing to admit that a lot of that might have been due to the fact that I was listening to it on Audio It was 18 hours long, and while Brendan Fraser did a good job, his reading was a little dramatic for my taste I prefer a understated narrator [...]


    6. Inkspell one word, one adventure With a completely original idea, a great plot, and a fantastic overall fantasy, this story s got it made I absolutely loved it Inkheart and Inkspell have become some of my favorite books Dustfinger the clear winner for my favorite character, I have to agree with Orpheus there He can hide his feelings at will, which is very admirable just ask Farid He believes himself to be cowardly, but he will go to great heights for the ones he cares about, such as Farid and Ro [...]


    7. So I am going to review the first book Inkheart alongside the second Inkspell since they are part of a trilogy This book is being heralded as a book to fill the void left by Harry Potter and is marketed to the same target age group The only difference is after reading the second book my immediate thought was, That was stupid I honestly can t remember the last time I felt so let down by a book The characters are so poorly developed that I found myself not caring in the least when something bad ha [...]


    8. I m glad that Inkspell kept up the same daring modern fantasy elements as the previous in the series, but also that it brought some new things into the story that were completely unexpected It was sad about Dustfinger though, so I hope that the third in the series is able to resolve it in some way.


    9. Inkspell picks up a year after Inkheart left off The Folcharts Mo, Resa, and Meggie are reunited in Elinor s house They have been joined by Darius another Silver tongue who can read things out of books but isn t nearly as good as Mo and a number of fantastical creatures who escaped from Inkheart, the book that Mo read aloud from thirteen years earlier that has dogged his footsteps since.All should be well, but meanwhile in another part of Italy, Dustfinger has found a sinister Silver tongue, usi [...]


    10. Was f r eine wunderbare Geschichte Cornelia Funke entf hrt uns ja im zweiten Teil endlich in die Tintenwelt, die ich auf jeder Seite so sehr genossen habe Endlich erlebt man den bunten Mark mit Spielleuten in Ombra, taucht ein in den Weglosen Wald, der von magischen Gesch pfen bev lkert ist, riskiert einen Blick hinter die Festung des Speckf rsten und entdeckt die silbernen T rme der Nachtburg Alleine schon die vielen malerischen Namen und Schaupl tze, von denen man im ersten Teil schon ein paar [...]


    11. Meggi, Mo et al continue in the story taking place in two worlds Not to give spoilers, but Mo is in a bad way Meggi is still learning as well as being in a bad way, mom is struggling and worrying and scared, and back to MO.he s binding a very special book.I liked this YA series, there are good ones and bad ones and being sure the youth is mature enough for the themes this is a good one.Again, an addition to my review hereI really like these books, I may even say love them and I m astounded that [...]


    12. I love this series and my 5 star rating reflects that This won t be to everyone s taste.Darker and grittier than the first in the series, it s hard to imagine that this is a middle grade book Great story filled with pain and death and malice and sacrifice and love and hearts breaking and evil rulers and nasty mean bad guys and women This tale is filled with thorough world building and an abundance of distinct characters I shed lots of tears with this book and there wasn t many feel good times it [...]



    13. Guys GUYS G U Y S I FINALLY READ THIS It s been sat on my shelves, next to my beloved Inkheart for the last s e v e n years and I finally read it ALL 670 pages, I m literally stunned This is something I never thought I d read, no matter how much I loved the first book, because I was worried I d be out of step with it, or feel too old to enjoy it, but THIS BOOK is totally outside of genre and age rating I really liked getting back into this world with such a great range of characters of all diffe [...]


    14. So it took me forever to escape the Inkworld I was so enveloped within this world along with these characters that I found it hard to escape I m a huge fan of InkHeart and this was just a wonderful edition to the original story It brought back all the characters I love, ripped out my heart, kept me on the edge of my seat, put my heart back in my chest and then broke it into a million pieces again Cornelia Funke is a great writer and I loved this story almost as much as the first book I m excited [...]


    15. Ostavi u neocenjenoliku sam itala ku blokadu imao da je knjiga zavr ena na silu,mu ilo me svako slovo.Sama postavka drugog dela je dinami nija,vise magi na,vise likova medjusobno isprepletanih.Nekako sam o ekivao vi e, ipak definitivno u nastaviti i zavr iti ovu trilogiju


    16. Bei dem Ende muss ich ganz bald den letzten Band lesen Aber es war ein grandioser Band Eine fantastische Reise in die Tintenwelt.



    17. Inkspell Review Book Rating 5 stars out of 5 Story Line 5 stars out of 5 Wowis book killed my soul at moments I really didn t expect any of the events that occurred to occur It was just as strong as the first one It had been a year since the events of the first one Resa, Meggie s mother, Mo, Meggie, and Elinor are all living in her house now as well as Capricorn s old reader Dustfinger was finally read back home He was read into the book by Orpheus I was happy for him Farid was not with him Fari [...]


    18. 5 5 stars obviously Bright hope arises from the dark And makes the mighty tremble Princes can t fail to see his mark Nor can they now dissemble With hair like moleskin, smooth and black And mask of bluejay feathers He vows wrongdoers to attack Strikes princes in all weathers He hunts their game, he robs their gold And him they would have slain But he s away, he will not stay They seek the Jay in vainThere s a reason I like big books and I cannot lie They may sometimes seem intimidating but there [...]


    19. Isn t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you ve read it several times Mo had said As if something were left between the pages every time you read it Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smellsd then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower strange and familiar.



    20. I actually enjoyed this book sooo much better than the first one It s actually a 3.5, maybe even a four I thought it flowed much better, the plot and suspense were much better as well I was glad to finally get to hear about Dustfinger and his life He is one of my favorite characters and I had to admire the author for actually killing him off, since he is such a favorite character although I think he will be back in the third book There were a couple things that I didn t like in the book First, [...]


    21. I ll put it bluntly It made me miserable.Again, I am impressed by the choice of words the luster of the settings described and the vary in the characters personalities It really wasn t that bad, but the story took a dive from 20 feet to 50 feet deeper I mean, the story got a little bit serious than it had been first The idea of making the story a little serious on the second book wasn t exactly a bad idea, but the change was as subtle as a gun I know, the part of many people s lives were kille [...]

    24. I read this book as a buddy read with a friend here on Good Reads, and since I enjoyed the first book, Inkheart, and it s world building so much I thought I should get to this one as soon as I could I am glad that I decided to get into this series, but I must say it is a pretty complex story and is definitely not light reading.In Inkheart we learn that Mo, Meggie s father, can read characters out of the books that he reads aloud Well this one continues on with all those great characters and seve [...]


    25. I will admit that this book was actually a chore for me to get through However, I gave it two stars because I liked the idea of the story While with Inkeart I was able to finish from the sheer novelty of the idea, that novelty had worn off a little by the time I got to Inkspell The biggest let down with this series, and the reason that I had such a hard time finishing this book, was the characters I know that it may be a personal bias, but I didn t feel a connection to any of the characters, whi [...]


    26. I will admit up front that I have a bias that is making it difficult for me to give this book a fair shake I read this after my 9 year old daughter completed it, but after we have both read Inkheart Based on the first book and the marketing I was expecting this one to also be reasonable age appropriate It is not.While Inkheart did a moderately decent job of fleshing out a couple of the characters, Inkspell did not further that cause doing little to expand upon what you already knew about the cha [...]
