I finished Inkheart by Cornelia Funke and while I liked it, it wasn’t what I expected. It took me a while to get into but once I did I struggled putting it down.
It starts out with Meggie and her father living an ordinary life. That is until a strange man called Dustfinger comes around to tell Meggie’s father that a man called Capricorn requests his presence. The first good portion of the book is spent with Meggie, Mo and Dustfinger running from Capricorn. This was the part that I struggled getting into. There were a lot of questions I had and was worried they were never going to be answered at this point because more questions were raised without the other questions being answered. As the story went on; however, I found myself becoming part of the story. Which is how you know the book is good. It took me several seconds, after putting the book down, to realize where I was or what I needed to do.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book even though it took me about 100 pages to get entranced. I rate this book a 3.75 out of 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good middle grade novel or a fantasy or both.
