At the moment I am reading Inkspell, the sequel to German author Cornelia Funke's successful book Inkheart. In Inkheart, young Meggie discovers that her father can actually read people out of books. This seems to be a wonderful gift, but he cannot really control who he reads out of the books, meaning that some rather dangerous character from fantasy novel Inkheart have made it over into our world. Inkheart is a very well written book with great characters, and movie studio New Line snapped it up when they realized they couldn't keep making Lord of the Rings movies forever, to ensure that they still had their fix of fantasy material to base successful pictures on. The lead role of Mo, the man capable of reading characters out of books, has gone to Brendan Fraser, the actor who was actually the inspiration for Funke when she wrote the book. Other actors who are on their way to the world of Inkheart are Andy Serkis as the evil Capricorn, Paul Bettany as the heroic Dustfinger, Helen Mirren as bookish Elinor, and up and coming young star Eliza Bennett as Mo's daughter Maggie.
