    This book is unlike most nonfiction novels. It’s different. It has pizzazz and sass to it. I would most definitely recommend this book to others. It is well written, fun to read, and one can really connect to it while they are reading. It’s informal and isn’t loaded with facts or specific dates. Kear uses simple slang while writing this book and uses strong but fun diction that readers can relate to because it’s the type of language that they use in everyday lives. Her words come to life on the

    Violence is essentially a motif in the novel. The novel is set through the narration of Fowler the main character and we only get to see what he thinks and sees. Fowler is the not the most reliable character because the novel is set through his flashbacks, because we know Alden Pyle is dead from the start of the novel.

    Dustfinger is a prime character in the novel, Inkheart, resembling selfishness and betrayal throughout his journey. Nevertheless, his depiction in the film adaptation of the novel wasn’t quite fitting for Funke’s original characterization. Despite the same acts being committed by Dustfinger, he draws more sympathy through the film’s version as his motives seem more pure while in the novel he was a rogue of a man who cared purely for himself. In particular, his interaction with Resa and his first
