Brilliant fantasy

In all the books that you have read about princes, princesses, wizards, witches, talking animals est. Sometimes you wanted to join them in their adventure or quest and talk to them, bring them to life. Well what if you could? Think what it would mean to them being hauled out of their world and not ever being able to go back. Now go through a thrilling adventure snug up in your bed with Meggie, Mo, Dustfinger and Elinor to face Capricorn and his black jacketed servants so that Meggie and her father can read Capricorn back to where he came from and all his servants. Conclusion: This was an amazingly gripping book. It took me faraway from my bed into Meggie’s world where unreal things happen. Inkheart is brilliantly written and I loved every single page of it. I hope somebody else is amazed by this fantastic book.
