When Mo Folchart reads a story aloud, the characters leap off the page. Literally. And that's a problem. One night he brings out three characters from Inkheart, a story set in medieval times and filled with magical beings. Capricorn and Basta are two villains. Dustfinger is a fire-eater. Now, 10 years later Mo's daughter, Meggie, discovers the truth and it's up to her to escape Capricorn's evil grasp. Mo has been searching for a long lost book that will help so he can use his special powers to the interlopers back to their world.

Love it! my favorites are Dustfinger and Capricorn. After reading the book I found a couple of mistakes, though; with the book and the movie. First of all, Fenoglio wrote about a character called the Bluejay (mentioned in the book), but in the movie he says that Mo gave him the idea for a character with that exact same description. Also, a mistake in the book was that Fenoglio says he based the Bluejay off Mo, but he didn't even know Mo when he wrote Inkheart! That part was in either Inkspell or Inkdeath. Also in the book why would Meggie read the Shadow out if she didn't know about her mother, just to talk to Dustfinger? Awesome otherwise, though!

I enjoyed this movie but then I'm easy to please, but reading the comments I'll have to read the book.

I loved this book so much. I definitely think that you should at least get a quarter into the book before stopping because, honestly, you aren't waiting till the middle of the book till the action comes. It's there pretty quickly. I <3ed it a bunch and definitely recommend it.

This movie can stand alone if you have not read the book. I think the different stories the characters have read could have been played up a bit more in the movie. It just lacked a lot of small details and general explanations.

Capricorn: I'm convinced. Though I don't know what that poor boy's going to do without his raft.
Meggie: I've read to you long enough. Now tell me where my father is!
Capricorn: I have absolutely no idea where your father is, and quite frankly I don't care. You read just as well as he does.

Elinor Loredan: But I just adore everything Persian.
Meggie Folchart: You've been to Persia, then?
Elinor Loredan: Yes, a hundred times. Along with St. Petersburg, Paris, Middle-Earth, distant planets and Shangri-la. And I never had to leave this room. Books are adventure. They contain murder and mayhem and passion. They love anyone who opens them.

What if every book you read aloud became the wonderful, or terrifying, reality? Mo Folchart is what is known as a silver tongue, able to bring books to life... until he read the wrong book. When he reads a novel called Inkheart, he brings to the real world a man named Capricorn, who wants a demonic creature he ruled in Inkheart to be read out of the book into the real world.
