New Releases: Inkdeath, The Graveyard Book and Nation


Three young adult new releases of interest this week: Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and Nation by Terry Pratchett. I'll be reading and reviewing both The Graveyard Book and Nation soon. I'll be reading Inkdeath as well, but a review for that probably won't be coming any time soon since I still need to read Inkspell.

  1. I am so very excited about Inkdeath! I'll probably be listening to the audiobook, since that's how I read the first two in the series, but that means I'll have to finish my current audiobook first - it's a powerful incentive!

  2. Fyrefly, how are the Cornelia Funke audiobooks? I've been getting more into audios lately and would definitely be interested in listening to those.

  3. How did I not know that Inkdeath was out already!?! Crap. I totally thought I pre-ordered it months ago. Well, I guess I'll be making a trip to Barnes and Noble tonight...

  5. Traci, I love those impromptu trips to the bookstore. (If I go there for one book, I come home with at least three.)

    HylianVampire, I'm still reading Brisingr as well, so don't feel bad! There are so many good books out now that it's hard to keep up with all of them.

  6. The audiobooks are very good, particularly Inkspell.

    Inkheart is read by Lynn Redgrave, and I thought it was pretty good, albeit a little bit draggy in the middle - although I think I would have thought the same about the paper book, too.

    Inkspell is read by Brendan Fraser, who's playing Mo (the father) in the upcoming movie (at Cornelia Funke's insistence, I believe!), and he was surprisingly wonderful. His narration style wasn't "typical audiobook narrator", so it took a little getting used to, but he did a great job with the voices - plus I liked the story of Inkspell better than that of Inkheart, so I'm sure that didn't hurt either.

  7. I still need to read the whole series. And I've just been dragging my feet because I have it in the German original and it just takes me so much longer to read in German...
