One cruel night, Meggie's father reads aloud from a book called INKHEART-- and an evil ruler 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. Meggie must learn to harness the magic that has conjured this nightmare. For only she can change the course of the story that has changed her life forever.
I adore this book. I have never seen an idea like this brought into media. I would love to have the power to read living creatures out of books. My life would be infinitely more interesting. Once I got into this book I could not escape. A very long time ago, I tried to read 'Inkheart', but I could not get into it. I regret my choice now though. The characters are well rounded and always interesting. All of them have a quirk specific to the individual character. For example Meggie and Mo both stroke the binding of the books before they open to read it. I love little details like that.
I recommend this book to everyone above the age of 12 years old. I say this because it can be a little slow but it is genuinely good.
