It's very seldom that I make it to a movie theater, but watching this movie during the recent power outage provided a welcome warm spot for me! And I really enjoyed it -- besides the obvious heat in the building, I mean! I had earlier devoured the book by Cornelia Funke, and that's why I picked this movie to watch. It's a swashbuckling fantasy where 12-year-old Meggie discovers why her mother has been missing for the last nine years -- when her father had read a book aloud he unknowingly brought some characters of the book into this world, and Meggie's mother was taken back into the book in exchange. Ever since, Meggie's dad has been looking for a copy of the book, so he can read his wife back into this world. And guess what the title of the book is? Inkheart!
Cornelia Funke has written 2 more stories about the Inkheart world, Inkspell and Inkdeath. I haven't read them yet, but they're on my list!
