I am not sure why this book was rated 1 star by another customer, but I found the book to be a truly enjoyable title. I got lost in this inky world and can't wait for the last book.
Brendan Frasier was a little distracting at first and I don't like his "Elinor" voice, but after a while, I grew to like him. Though, I still prefer Lynn Redgrave's reading of Inkheart.
This is a worthy sequel to Inkheart (Please read that one first, or you will be lost). The translation is excellent and the book sounds as if it were originally written in English rather than German.
A must read for all book lovers who still have that sense of wonder about the worlds between the pages of a book.

While I'm not a huge Cornelia Funke fan (I listen in the car, with my daughter, who is), I was drawn into "Inkheart" by Lynn Redgrave's skillful and coherent narration (full disclosure: we both have a certain preference for the stage-trained English voice).
Brendan Fraser's take on "Inkspell" is hugely disappointing (both listeners agree). His accents are inconsistent, and all over the (world) map, marked by bursts of strident enthusiasm, and ... gratuitous ... pauses ... for ... emphasis. But, judging from other reviewers' positive response, taste in narrators, as in all else, is ever personal...
