Inkheart, Inkspell, and Inkdeath

by Cornelia Funke

This is the most suspenseful and exciting book I've ever read! Smile

it is about Meggie's adventures when a strange man shows up at her house, late at night, who calls himself Dustfinger and begins a journeywith the ruthless Capricorn, Basta, and Mortola. She uncovers shocking secrets about a book, her father's strange talents, and her long-lost mother's whereabouts...

I loved this book, even though Capricorn was annoying and flat and boring and... Okay, I'll stop now, before I use so many adjectives that the entire message of my post turns negative, which is not my intent.

Well, yes, that, too. ;) But if there were no evil chracters in the entire book, things would probably start to get boring. Which is why, since, basically, the purpose of even having evil characters in a book is to prevent that, I'm more annoyed at him for being boring than for being evil. Of course, if he were real, that would be a different matter altogether. ;)

I love this series! (sadly, I didn't read it during the summer, so I didn't get that many pages for my going to Grade 5 Summer Reading) In the movie version (which is obviously worse than the series) the person who plays Smegul in Lord of the Rings plays Capricorn. I think. It's been such a long time since I read the series, however, I still know too much of it to be able to read it properly. ;-)
