INKHEART

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lynn Redgrave

Children Ages 8+ • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Cornelia Funke’s second stunning novel joins a body of literature that challenges the conventions of realistic fiction. Consider the premise that characters can jump from stories into real life and vice versa. Add to this fluidity the notion that the author can create an alternative ending to be read into the story. Inkheart is an intriguing, fast-paced, and provocative fantasy. Marvel as 12-year-old Meggie and her bookbinder father grapple with wily villains, unsettling accomplices, and “drop-in” characters, as they seek to achieve stability in their world and family. Lynn Redgrave is a superb narrator. Her vocal repertoire richly supports Funke’s myriad characters. As personalities unfold over time, so Redgrave’s passion brings depth to each. Both the story and the narration underscore the idea that power comes not from fear and might but from communication and love. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2004 ALA Notable Recording and YALSA Selection, 2004 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 04]
