Tuesday's QBR

InkheartImage via Wikipedia
Up this week for book reviews are:
1. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
This is on my FitG list. And only because it is on that list did I make myself finish reading it.  Okay, that is sad. But, it just never seemed to end for me. If you's like to read a full review on this book click here.

2. War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

This story of World War I is told in the POV of Joey, a British farm horse turned into a war horse.  As a farm horse he loved his owner/friend Albert. Throughout the war we see him long to find Albert again and go back to the peaceful fields of home. But will he?
I really liked the idea of writing about war through the eyes of an animal. I think this helps bring a deep and hard subject to a younger audience in a less threatening way. I think it is a great middle school read....maybe even upper elementary.
This book was previewed for the library.

wow, that War HOrse one sounds really good..

I found the same to be true about InkHeart! So sad! Then I checked out the movie thinking it would be better. Um,no. It was just missing something!

Thanks for the warning...I was just seriously thinking about trying to find it and watch it. I won't waste my time.
Funny thing, a friend of mine was just shocked by my review b/c he really liked the whole series. It is so totally a love or dislike kind of a book, isn't it?
