* BrokenBase: The shipping arguments came to a head in ''Inkdeath'', wherein [[spoiler:Maggie ends up with Doria instead of Farid]]. Was it a case of DerailingLoveInterests? Was [[spoiler:Doria given enough characterization in the span of one book to show hims as a better suitor than Farid who'd been characterized for three?]] The entirety of their romance subplot is within ''Inkdeath'' [[spoiler:and only ''Inkdeath'']] was it handled convincingly? Was it a RomanticPlotTumor?

* BrokenBase: BrokenBase:
** The book series changing genres from ''Inkheart's'' UrbanFantasy to ''Inkspell'' and ''Inkdeath's'' MedievalEuropeanFantasy. Was that a good shift? Was it part of the alleged decay the books went through? Was there even a decay in quality at all?

* BaseBreaker: Some fans weren't too happy with ''Inkdeath'', which had Farid derailed as Meggie's love interest [[spoiler:and be replaced by a new character who sweeps Meggie off her feet with his charm.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeDiabetes: The film's ending is so ridiculously happy it's almost unbearable. Meggie defeats Capricorn and his men on her own, reads almost every character back into their own books, and somehow gets her mother's voice to return. To add onto the sugary ending, Dustfinger is read back into his book and happily reunites with his wife and it's implied that Meggie and Farid get together.

* {{Squick}}: The Meggie/Dustfinger pairing. Meggie is young enough to be Dustfinger's daughter, but this is strangely popular.

* CrackShip: Strangely enough, Basta/Meggie has gotten some attention. Some don't pay attention to the FoeYay {{Squick}} of an older man being a woman young enough to be his daughter or the fact that he's threatened her and her father.

Added DiffLines:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: According to Fenoglio, he let both Capricorn and Basta survive his book while letting Dustfinger die, as he is rather pessimistic about the world, believing that murderers get off scot-free while the innocent die. This may have been the reason why he chose to write a sequel to rectify that.

* AccidentalAesop: As Roger Ebert sarcastically put it in his [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090121/REVIEWS/901219989 review]] of TheMovie, "I never knew reading was so dangerous. No child seeing 'Inkheart' will ever want to be read to again, especially if that child loves its mother, as so many do." Ironic considering the overall intended message of the books.

* FanonDiscontinuity: 'Inkdeath'? What is this 'Inkdeath' you speak of? I know of no such horrible thing.

* FanPreferredCouple: Some people were on board for the Meggie/Farid ship [[spoiler:even after ''Inkdeath'' where Meggie gets together with a different character.]]
** Despite both of them being HappilyMarried to their spouses, especially when they were in different universes, Dustfinger/Resa is pretty popular.
