Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Iris | 2/20/2014

    " The first book, Inkheart, was beautiful and engrossing. The second two were simply pale continuations of the story. It's good to know how the story ends, but... meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex Rennick | 2/13/2014

    " After the first two novels in this series, Inkdeath disappointed me. The dynamic cast lost a lot of its appeal and the traits that I loved most about many of the main characters were put to the wayside. Finishing this book became an effort rather than the enjoyment I had in the first two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Skoglund | 2/5/2014

    " It was hard to get into and dragged on a little but overall i loved it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philip Boling | 1/31/2014

    " I enjoyed the book. It looks like the door has been left open for a fourth and I think I would prefer to have had the door shut with this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R2geek2 | 1/18/2014

    " The ending was worth the toil of the rest of the story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 1/7/2014

    " I just can't keep reading this book. I tried to give it some time after the depressing ending of Inkspell, but the story just isn't grabbing me. Perhaps I'll come back to it someday, but honestly if you are thinking of reading this trilogy, just read the first book and leave it there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Branka Potter | 11/5/2013

    " So good book. I love this trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty Rayburn | 10/9/2013

    " WOW! This book grabs you from the beginning and leaves you missing the characters at the end! I really really loved this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Schmidt | 10/4/2013

    " Not as good as the first in the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Gessling | 9/26/2013

    " The third book continues to carry on a complicated story line with ease. The characters are maturing & it is very interesting. This is an original series that shouldn't be overlooked! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martina Ovens | 6/8/2013

    " Not as good as # 1 and 2, but still an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 4/16/2013

    " This series of books is a really good read. Not for a person wanting a light-hearted read--the ending isn't exactly a true happy ending. But it fits, and makes it worth it. I have yet to see the movie Inkheart... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chrissey | 10/13/2012

    " this one was my favorite. i still love that series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naa | 8/17/2012

    " SO far its really really really good!! a perfect ending!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 5/9/2012

    " This one took 220 pages to get going. The only reason I kept going is that I liked Inkheart so much. But once it got going, it was a pretty satisfying story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marina | 4/26/2012

    " It is truly Ink and Death. They are coming... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri | 3/11/2012

    " True to form, by the time the series finally ended, I didn't really care any more. I couldn't even muster up the interest to give this third volume a close read, settling for skimming to see the final disposition of Meggie, Dustfinger, and the rest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tish | 8/10/2011

    " I love it! I've read it several times and it never gets boring. Such a great ending to the trilogy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ha | 6/28/2011

    " I actually found the story idea to be potentially good, but the characters themselves were very unlikeable, from Dustfinger (a protagonist) to Capricorn (the antagonist).

    Needed a different writer "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jairin | 6/28/2011

    " I got about halfway through before I gave up on it and moved to eragon. Very slow and boring. It's got a unique plot, but it could be put in a book half the size it was put in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 6/28/2011

    " This book was great! And it's the book that got me hooked on reading xD "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha | 6/27/2011

    " This was such a fun and magical story that I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy! I already have them checked out of the library! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cecilia | 6/25/2011

    " I must say at first I didn't really like this book. But, towards the end I got hooked. Just get by the first half of the book and you'll love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 6/25/2011

    " I made the mistake of watching the movie before reading the book. I found the middle part of the story really starts to drag but I really love the overall idea of the book. Regardless, I'm going to have to read the rest of the series
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/24/2011

    " Nicely written book with interesting characters and premise. Thought it was a little tedious at times (how many times do they have to escape and then get re-captured??) but overall a fun read. (If I didn't say that, Catherine would be disappointed...). :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh | 6/23/2011

    " Beautiful story concept but not as well executed as it could have been in my opinion. It's a good long, yet moderately difficult read for kids just diving into the young adult genre- as such it is an excellent to read aloud for the obvious ties to the storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ShadowScribe | 6/22/2011

    " Amazing! I was literally pulled into the story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 6/20/2011

    " I think every book lover should give Inkheart a read. It is delightful and has a unique sensibility and tone. The following two books were a bit disappointing, but satisfying to follow the characters to their conclusions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dondre | 6/20/2011

    " If i had this power i would bring back Renji from the Bleach manga and Tinkerbell because i want to fly:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lexi | 6/18/2011

    " Amazing combination of modern day and fairytales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 6/18/2011

    " loved this series. This is a great book but believe it or not the 2nd and 3rd are even better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 6/17/2011

    " Very good book! I loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zee | 6/15/2011

    " It has many good detail. I think it is a very food book "
