Comecei a ler este livro no dia 23 de Junho de 2009 e acabei no dia 17 de Julho.
Um livro que transporta o leitor para dentro de outros livros, fazendo-o sentir-se o protagonista da história. Adaptação cinematográfica prevista para 9 de Abril.
Inkheart de Cornelia Funke
Críticas de imprensa
«Esta “história dentro da história” vai deliciar não apenas os adeptos da fantasia, mas todos aqueles que apreciem um enredo impressionante e personagens excepcionais.»
School Library Journal
«Uma escrita de fazer parar o coração, que compele à leitura…um festim para quem se deixa perder nos livros que lê.»
«Encantador!... Esta história parece ter sido salpicada com pó de fadas mágico.»
The New York Times Book Review Review
Gostei bastante, cheio de aventura e acção... o filme está bastante parecido... têm algumas modificações... mas no geral está quase uma copia fiel ao livro.
Realmente nalguns livros sabia bem conseguir ler algumas personagens para o nosso mundo... seria deveras interessante ;)!!!
Cornelia Caroline Funke was born on December 10, 1958, in Dorsten, North Rhine-Westphalia. She is a multiple award-winning German author of children's fiction. Funke is best known for her Inkworld trilogy, with the English translation of the third book, Inkdeath, released on October 6, 2008. Many of her books have now been translated into English. Her work fits mainly into the fantasy and adventure genres. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
Cornelia Funke was born in 1958 in the German town of Dorsten to Karl-Heinz and Helmi Funke. As a child, she wanted to become an astronaut and or a pilot, but then decided to study pedagogy at the University of Hamburg. After finishing her studies, Funke worked for three years as a social worker, focusing on children with a deprived background. She had a stint illustrating books, but soon began writing her own stories, inspired by the sorts of stories that had appealed to the deprived children she had worked with.
During the late 1980s and the 1990s, Funke established herself in Germany with two children's series, namely the fantasy-oriented Gespensterjäger (Ghosthunters) and the Wilde Hühner (Wild Chicks) line of books. Her international break-through came with the fantasy novel Dragon Rider (1996), which stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for 78 weeks, and was continued with The Thief Lord (2000, translated into English in 2002), which immediately climbed to the #2 position of the New York Times bestseller list, stayed there for 19 weeks and sold 1.5 million copies.
Her follow-up novel was Inkheart (2003), which won the 2004 BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature award. Inkheart was the first part of a trilogy which was continued with Inkspell (2005), which won Funke her second BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature award (2006). The trilogy was finally concluded in Inkdeath (published in Germany in 2007, English version Spring 2008, American version Fall 2008).
