I was able to see “Inkheart” on the weekend with my two oldest nephews, one of whom owns the Inkheart trilogy. (I’ve read the first two books.) We all loved the movie version.
I know some details were changed from the book, but since it’s been a while since I read it, I don’t recall specifics. And that’s probably a good thing because it allowed me to appreciate the screenplay for what it is. Movies are typically faster-paced than books because of the time limits they face, so events and explanations are either quickly done or omitted, but this doesn’t have to mean the movie isn’t enjoyable. The screenwriters of “Inkheart” managed to satisfy at least two readers.
I’ll be waiting impatiently for the DVD release so I can share the story with the rest of my family. Of course, if I can persuade them to read the novels as well… 😉 To a bookworm like me, a tale of books coming alive is the ultimate intrigue!
