Inkheart Trilogy by Cornelia Funke Discussion #1

The Inkheart trilogy is a series of three fantasy novels written by German author Cornelia Funke, comprising Inkheart (2004), Inkspell (2006), and Inkdeath (2008). The books chronicle the adventures of teenager Meggie Folchart whose life changes dramatically when she realizes that she and her father, a bookbinder named Mo, have the unusual ability to bring characters from books into the real world when reading aloud. Mostly set in Northern Italy and the parallel world of the fictional Inkheart book, the central story arc concerns the magic of books, their characters and creatures, and the art of reading.

Looks like both of you aren't/weren't very fond of it. How come? I have heard a lot of good things about it.

Somehow I couldn't get into it. Didn't really like her style to write.

I've heard lots of good things about the books as well and I like the general idea of the story, but I can't seem to come to terms with the writing style at all

Same for me, always a disappointment after you heard so many good things about a book.

That's true - if you have heard a lot of good stuff, you have high expectations and if you like the plot idea you often really want to like it. Sometimes it just doesn't work out that way

Yeah, sadly sometimes it doesn't.

I plan on finishing the first book eventually, maybe I will get the hang on it later on

I liked the first two, but was really disappointed with the last. Funke's husband dying really had a bad impact on the story, imo
