The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

Sorry, Mods, if there's already a post like this. I searched, but couldn't find one.

Has anybody read the Ink Trilogy? There are two books so far:

-Inkheart
-Inkspell

The third one, Inkdeath, will be printed in English (the author writes in German) around October.

Tell me what you think of the series.
I thought it was...okay. Not anywhere as good as Artemis Fowl, HP or Alex Rider. On scale of five, I'd give it two and a half.

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

Ooh, I love these books! I thought the end os Inkspell was really cheesy when Dustfinger "brought Farid back to life," but it's a good story. I'm looking forward to seeing how it will end. Inkdeath, eh? Sounds interesting. But who has to die? Unless I'm remembering falsely, Basta died in Spell, so there's no one bad left. I've heard that a movie is in production, too!

I haven't read any of them, but I really want to! Everyone that I know who's read them said they were good.

I read the first book and thought it was interesting. I have the second one and my sister has the third but I couldn't get back into it again. I might try again some other time though.

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

Love these books!!

I can't wait for Inkdeath! I'm guessing it's got something about bringing Dustfinger back from the whats-their-names?

And the movies been filmed aswell. Hope it's good.

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

No, I don't think the third is out yet. It has been an awfully long wait between two and three, don't you think?

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

Maybe I can take a crash course in German and get the book imported...I would so do that if I weren't so lazy. I can't wait for the next book, or for the movie.

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

I'm always looking for new series to get into. I'm curious, what is the Ink Trilogy about?

Hm it's difficult to explain without major spoiling. It's about the ability to enter bookworlds. It's partly set in our world and partly in a fantasy world, written in a book. The main character is a young girl whose father is a book restaurator and well THINGS HAPPEN. LOL I bet that was clear.

It's nice and definitely worth a read, because I thought it was rather original, both the theme and the worlds, and the characters are also rather loveable

Can I just say that I rejoice that FOR ONCE it's the english speakers who have to wait for translation?

Ok, I've read the third when it came out, but won't spoil.

Lucky!!!
I've been waiting since Inkspell came out to read it and still have to wait 2 1/2 months!

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

Inkdeath is slated to appear October 7 in the US, but no word yet on when the movie version of Inkheart will come out. Last I checked the release date had been pushed back to early 2009 sometime. It's unclear why, seeing how the special effects for the Shadow have apparently already been done. The trailer looks great, and they picked a great cast. Paul Bettany looks just the way I visualize Dustfinger, who is my favorite character as well. And how'd they get Helen Mirren, whose stock is so high at present, to play Elinor? And Jim Broadbent, that wonderful character actor who's playing Slughorn, as Fenoglio? I'm not so sure about Andy Serkis (Gollum in the LOTR movies)...He definitely comes off over-the-top in the trailer. That bit where he's rhapsodizing about duct tape had to be an improvisation; it's definitely not in the book!

Speaking of the book...These are books that should be close to the heart of anyone who really, really loves reading, because the love of reading is really the core of what they're about. But they are also a cautionary tale about the dangers of loving books so much that one loses touch with other humans. I recommend them highly. Oh, and they also make me want to visit the Italian Riviera!

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

I loved Inkheart, it's perfect fiction for bibliophiles. She makes bookbinding sound like a magical thing to do..I think I'm going to revisit Dustfinger now .

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

I love this books. Cornelia Funke is a very good writer, and they have found a very good Norwegian translater. I can't wait to read Inkdeath, or Blekkdød as it will probably be in Norwegian! And I really find myself in both Meggie, Mo and Elinor. I think if you mix them together you will get me

I really want to see the movie, I've seen the trailer and it seems to be a really good movie. And Dustfinger, my favourite character, looks exactly like I imagined him!

I think that very many of those who have read and like Harry Potter and other fantasy books will like the Inkworld trilogy.

Re: The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke

Inkdeath is now published in Norwegian! I've just bought it, but it seems to be just as good, or even better, than the others!
