You thought you new about fairy tales? THINK AGAIN.
I've fell in love with our hero Jacob Reckless, my ideal kind of guy, a gentleman, romantic and achingly flawed- just like what the publisher of this book said. well what can i say? the publisher already said it all. Funke have created such a very compelling story and a wonderful magical world "through the mirror" and also an amazing hero, characters and plot, that made me wanting more and more . You don't want to mess up with a Dark Witch nor with a Goyle do you?! this book is pact with adventures, brotherhood, betrayals, dark magic and happy ever after ending... OR was it? I really LOVED this one. I'm actually looking forward for the book 2, I want more of Jacob! I RECOMMEND this book to everyone (kids ya and adult)! cheers.
here's one of my favourite lines:
"Her skin smelled of autumn and the wind. Don't, Jacob. But it was too late. Clara didn't flinch as he pulled her close. He grabbed her hair, kissed her mouth, and felt her heart beating fast as his own. The tiny hearts of the larks had burst from the madness. Hence the name: Lark's Water. Innocent, cool and clear, but just one sip and you were lost. Let her go, Jacob. But he kissed her again and it was his name she whispered, not Will's." Cornelia Funke's other famous books, Inkheart (it also has a movie), InkSpell, Inkdeath and many more..
Just recently i found out that this book has in common with this movie The Brothers Grimm casting Matt Damon and Heath Ledger as Will and Jake. in this movie also shows significance in the book Reckless check it out
