I started this book as a way to get my extremely smart, extremely advanced son into reading. The boy is an excellent reader but absolutely HATES it. It's devastating to me since I love reading so much but I refuse to give up on him. I know that there is going to be one book that catches him and he won't ever look back. So, it's been my mission to find it.
I can't think of how many times as a kid I thought of how cool it would be to get inside a book or have the characters come to life. As an only child, books were my refuge for the loneliness I often times experienced.
However, INKHEART really explored this thought and showed how it wouldn't always be such a good thing for the characters to come to life.
This was such a great story, I couldn't stop listening. I can't wait to continue the series. Meggie, Mo, Farid, and Dustfinger as well as Theresa and Eleanor have really made an impression on me.
