    1. 3.5 stars! I wish I had read this back when I started the series Still enjoyable and I liked the ending :)

    2. SpoilersWell, in the end I was satisfied with the book and I do love Cornelia Funke's writing, but I did have some issues with the plot1) I kept expecting Meggie to start writing in place of Fenoglio since he was throwing himself a little pity party, and I was disappointed that she never did. She was an integral character in the first two books, but it seemed like she played a smaller, less important role in this book. Was her purpose in the story just to read aloud the few things Fenoglio actua [...]

    3. [99% spoiler-free; I have trouble with spilling spoilers, so I'm working hard not to do it this time]I got so crazy about this series that I not only ordered vol. 3 (this one) from Germany to find out how it ended, I even ordered the audio book and put it on my iPod so I could obsess about it repeatedly.The cover blurb says, "Der Verlag übernimmt keine Haftung für eventuell verloren gegangene Personen." ("The publishers assume no responsibility for readers who disappear," essentially. It's all [...]

    4. Tintentod = Inkdeath (Inkworld, #3), Cornelia FunkeThe Inkheart trilogy is a series of three fantasy novels written by German author Cornelia Funke, comprising Inkheart (2003), Inkspell (2005), and Inkdeath (2008). The books chronicle the adventures of teen 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 [...]

    5. Inkdeath is the epic adventure I expected Inkheart and Inkspell to be—and as much as I complained about the slow pace, plot meandering, and innumerable characters in the first two books, I can tell you now that all the buildup was worth it. Funke was juggling so many different plots by the end of Inkspell that I was seriously worried that many or all would be dropped or mishandled in the third act, but she surprised me by keeping all of them going until their natural conclusions, and also resi [...]

    6. The German title for the second book in this series is TINTENBLUT or INKBLOOD. Why it became INKSPELL in the US is a mystery (my guess is it was a marketing decision --- spell is a lot less scary than blood). Having now read the final book in the series, I see why that original title was so apt and think it was very unfortunate that it was changed. But back to this book. It is dense, dark, and rich with ideas. I found it totally engrossing. The story picks up where the previous volume left off. [...]

    7. Wow. Wow! I'm speechless. Wow. Gah, I don't know what to say. Let me first let out a scream of stunned glee AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!Okay, now that that's over with, I'll get on with the review. XD First, I have to say INKDEATH IS SOOO A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I could not tear my eyes away from the pages when I was reading it, and the whole time, my heart was pounding so hard Inkdeath is crazily exciting and thrilling. And there are so many genius plot twists, it's [...]

    8. خو مُو ایی رِ چوطور رِیت بُدُم؟! :)) اینو اگه بچه‌تر بودم می‌خوندم، خیلی خیلی بیشتر خوشم می‌اومد.( و با این دید که برا سن من نوشته نشده، چار میدم) اما الآن بی‌اندازه مرگ‌بار بود. جداً می‌گم. یه جاهایی اوج می‌گرفت و هَلَف هَلَف صفحه‌ها رو می‌خوندی. بعد یهو دیالوگ‌ها ملال‌انگ [...]

    9. 5/5 starsWhy did death make life taste so much sweeter? Why could the heart love only what it could also lose?Open a book. Make yourself comfortable and breathe a little. Close your eyes and open them again. And start reading. You'll find yourself in another world. A world of tall trees, clear blue skies, the sound of horse hooves, the colliding of swords, the chirping of the birds and the aura of adventure. But you'll also feel other, more human feelings. You'll feel happiness, love and safety [...]

    10. I absolutely LOVED this one! This was everything I hoped it would be and more. I thought the author did a great job of bringing this altogether and "ending" it. Don't want to say too much as my friends haven't read it yet but there were some surprises and the story was left "sort of"open-- new series in the making? :)This third installment was a bit darker than the last 2-- much more like the ending of InkSpell. For a while everything gets to a point where it all feels so hopeless. But the way t [...]

    11. Re-writing this review because I was young when I last read it and I was angry. After all Inkheart was the first book I ever read. Haha sorry if I did offend someone. Not really my intention, I was just heartbroken over the book. Not going to write a long review, but I still dislike this book for many reason I guess all ranging from plot wise and like certain aspects of it. I'm still sad about how the ending of the book turned out. So in the end I like to pretend this book didn't exist and that [...]

    12. Düsterer, abwechslungsreicher und spannender Abschluss!!!ACHTUNG! Spoiler zu den Vorgängern!Ja, es geht düster weiter, denn die Ereignisse haben viele unerwartete Wendungen genommen, die die Charaktere nachhaltig beeinflussen. Auch wenn immer wieder Hoffnungen geweckt werden, ist schnell jemand zur Stelle, der sie mit Füßen tritt und jede der Figuren wird vor neue Herausforderungen gestellt, die ihnen alles abverlangen.Die Kapitel werden wieder mit speziell passenden Zitaten aus anderen Bü [...]

    13. Eh, not my favorite of the series, but the writing was good. Honestly I'd hoped for better. Don't let this put you off though. I definitely recommend Inkheart and Inkspell. The next part of my review contains.SPOILERS!!!!!Ok, when it comes to Meggie's boy choices, I really like Doria. While Farid is awesome, Doria is effing amazing. Farid spent more time pining after Dustfinger than he did after Meggie, which says something about how he is. He also played the jealous boyfriend, more possessive t [...]

    14. این ریویو رو برای هر سه جلد می‌نویسم:جلد اول در مقایسه واقعا به کتاب کودکان می‌مونست. سفر یک دختربچه با پدرش به دنیای غریبی که با خشونت و بی‌رحمی، وجه دیگری از دنیایی که درش زندگی می‌کنیم، آشناش می‌کنه. یک کتاب معمولی با روایت و اتفاقات معمولی در ژانر خودش. جلد دوم اما اتفاقا [...]

    15. A fantastic end to the trilogy with a finale that left me completely content - no loose ends and remarkably realistic for a fantasy. Inkdeath is certainly something to look forward too.

    16. wow. I always expect to be disappointed with the final novel in a series But the INKHEART trilogy continued to put it's best foot forward all the way through it's very last pages. Now I am usually distraught when a main character isn't killed in some glorious manner for the sake of the series, but INKDEATH, somehow didn't need a monumental sacrifice to make it solid. I think Meggie's, "pushing away" of Farid, kind of filled that hole for me. Now, lets talk about Dustfinger O.O I fell in love wit [...]

    17. I have mixed emotions finishing this series. Not because I didn't completely love it though! I'm sad because my journey through one of my favourite worlds is once again over. But I'm happy because I love this series so much and Inkdeath is my favourite out of the series and it was wonderful revisiting this world. Such a perfect ending to an amazing series! An absolute must read for any bookworm! Because who amongst us hasn't imagine slipping into the pages of your favourite books?

    18. Cornelia Funkes liebevoll gestaltete Website ist eine wahre Schatzkiste. Eine Stunde habe ich mich durch ihren Internetauftritt gelesen und weiß nun, dass sie ein Islandpony namens Jarpur besaß, gern eine gruselig anmutende Mischung aus Eistee und Limonade trinkt und sich seit 2015 in den USA selbst verlegt, weil die Differenzen mit ihrem Verlag unüberwindbar waren. Dort fand ich auch den Blogpost, der belegt, dass Frau Funke an einer Fortsetzung ihrer „Tintenwelt“-Trilogie arbeitet. Leid [...]

    19. I read Inkdeath as a buddy read with a friend. This one wraps up the Inkheart trilogy. I am so glad I started and got to finish this trilogy. I must say that I would not class this as a middle grade series. It is very complex and also has some content that I would not think suitable for younger readers.I really rather liked this book from the trilogy more than the first two. From the start of the series I always liked the plot of being able to read yourself into or out of a story. This one went [...]

    20. I love it when people write reviews that are EXY. on par with how I felt about a book. This one in particular gets it spot on. I was really disappointed by Inkdeath. Not gonna lie. I finished it several days ago and have sat around trying to think of positive things to say about it but I got nothin'. This is by far the weakest book in the trilogy and should have been much shorter and much less lame. Dangit. This book is not quite a total departure from Inkheart and Inkspell but it's pretty close [...]

    21. The word for this book--one that occurs more than any other besides names and "fire"--would be "longing."There's the longing of the vaporous White Women, clutching at hearts and pulling them toward eternal peace.There's the longing of every character, separated from loved ones as all battle to overcome the spreading evil.There's the longing to become more powerful, especially evident in Orpheus, but also clear in the others, to be more: more alive, more noticed, more feared, or more important.Ov [...]

    22. I'd been anticipating this book for a long, long time, so my expectations were high. Also it had been a while since I'd re-read Inkheart or Inkspell, so some things were hard for me to remember.The writing was as beautiful as the first two books, and several chapters (especially #8) were very moving and eloquent. In that, it didn't disappoint me at all. My main complaint is that Dustfinger almost completely lost his charm. Before, he had been pretty much one of my favorite literary characters EV [...]

    23. It has been a real pain to get to finish this book. The idea has always been original, but the writer doesn't know how to develop the story in an interesting way. Let's just say that the book only starts to get interesting in the last 100 pages or so, and it's 700 pages long! The characters are in a fantasy world that is barely explored. Nothing happens for a long time and, when something does happen, it's just too sudden, out of nowhere, and it finished quickly. Characters that could add some d [...]

    24. This is the third book in the Inkworld trilogy. I think the first one was my favorite one. I liked the character development in the second oned in this one, I liked the ending. My main problem with this one is that many of the key characters started sounding the exact same. They were in constant 'sneering' mode. It was getting old and I started getting bored. The character, Mo/Mortimer/Blue Jay/ Silver Tongue, kept it going and kept me vested in the outcome. So 3 stars, because of Mo and the end [...]

    25. Al principio, me costó muchísimo encontrar un ritmo de lectura para esta novela; en parte, se debió a que me negaba a terminar una de las sagas más hermosas que he leído en la vida y también, porque no me encontraba del todo bien emocionalmente. Cuando tengo estas rachas, tiendo a desinteresarme en los libros, especialmente porque sus mundos ofrecen un refugio que no es real, al que no puedo acceder las veinticuatro horas del día. La ironía es que pensaba muchísimo en las novelas de Cor [...]

    26. So captivating and I COULD NOT put it down! It's probably more for younger readers, but I don't care and so I read it and it was amazing and RTC.Yes that was the worst review ever. I know.

    27. Ich habe es nach knapp 50 Seiten abgebrochen. Es war langweilig, die meisten Charaktere sind nervig und die Story an sich ist auch nichts Besonderes. Farid geht mir tierisch auf die Nerven und Meggie ist nur am rum heulen. Ich fand das zweite Buch schon relativ schlecht und bin froh dass es jetzt zu Ende ist.

    28. Warning: MAJOR spoilers. I'm really disappionted.First of all, it took way too long to get into this book. During the first 200-300 pages, I was like "What?" I didn't really care about the characters, and nothing they did piqued my interest. It was bland. Maybe bad editing, or maybe bad writing, I couldn't really tell. But I think someone could have safetly cut a LOT of pages from the manuscript without losing that much. I mean, the first books weren't small, but I felt like a lot happened. But [...]

    29. (spoilers)I learned that the first book of this trilogy is unfortunately the best book in this trilogy. While the ending is good there are major flaws in the text:1. Aunt Elinor was a vital character in book 1 and to see her cast aside as minor for books 2 and 3 was very disappointing.2. Meggie was the main character for book 1 and most of 2 and yet wasn't even in the major scenes at the end of the book. That made no sense whatsoever.3. These books seemed extremely violent at times for a young a [...]

    30. I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for this one. "Inkheart," the first of the trilogy, is definitely my favorite of the three, and I really loved it. However, my interest kind of waxed and waned throughout this third book, and I never *really* felt too involved. That said, I did enjoy it and was happy to reunite with my favorite Inkheart people; as in the other books, I also really like the quotes that open each chapter. I was mostly satisfied with the conclusion, though one or two things kind of l [...]
