Helen Dunmore, a British author, well known for her books for children, has come out with yet another fantasy series called the Ingo series. Initially a trilogy, it soon went onto become a series with a total of 4 books. Ingo is the 1st book of the series. A fan of Harry Potter, I picked this book just by glancing at its cover…it featured a mermaid. :)

The story is about the adventures of Connor and Sapphire, who loose their father to the world of Ingo. He is believed to have drowned but Connor a

Haaah... "mimpi" itu akhirnya berakhir juga...!

Kenapa kubilang "mimpi"?
Karena ketika membaca Ingo (buku 1), aku serasa bermimpi...
Bukan mimpi ketemu kaum mer (manusia duyung), btw. Itu mah enggak penting, ^^'.
Tapi, mimpi bisa nyebur ke laut, lalu menarik napas dalam-dalam dan... enggak tenggelam.
Beneran, waktu itu pengen banget berangkat ke pantai sambil nyanyi-nyanyi lagu "Peggy Gordon" versinya The Corrs. Ugh!

Tapi ya, seperti kataku itu, "mimpi"-nya habis. Selesai. Tamat.

The fourth and final book in the ingo series. The end to this book shocked me greatly, and also made me cry, the detail in the book made me feel as if me and sapphire were one. It is an extremely good book to end the series with, i only wish that it was not over so soon. The end was very satisfying, from the beginning the excitement was intense and kept me occupied. Helen Dunmore has a way with words.

:D loved the ending on this book. Although i always wanted some romance between Faro and Sapphire, yet it never happened. Elvira annoyed me throughout this book and sometimes i wished she wasnt part of it.

The last book in the series. When the call is sounded, all the young of Ingo that hear it go on the 'Crossing' - an epic swim around the oceans of the world. Sapphy and Conner, although half human and living in Air, are called too. But Ervys and his followers don't want any half-bloods polluting the tradition. They want Ingo to be pure and to fight back against the encroachments of humans, while Saldowr believes that it is the half-bloods that will bring healing to both Ingo and Air. Connor, Sap ...more

Sudah kubilang aku akan menamatkannya hari ini.

Aku tidak yakin apakah tangisanku untuk (view spoiler) menyaingi tangisanku untuk Cal, tapi aku yakin satu hal: ia mencintai Sapphire dan Conor. Bahkan Jennie. Tapi terkadang, cinta saja tidak cukup untuk membuatmu tinggal.

Petualangan Sapphire, Conor, Faro, dan Elvira dalam melakukan Penyeberangan Ingo cukup menarik meski tidak sampai mengubek-ubek jantung. Tapi... ya... seperti ketika kau mendengarkan temanmu yang

I love how all 4 books came together. Helen really out did herself, I think. It's been an incredible journey experiencing all the different characters. You can really find yourself with in each character but I personally think I am more like Sapphire but that's probably because I'm a pisces. I fell in love with the first book and have been caught with in the world of Ingo ever since. I re-read the books and still felt the same emotions as before but not as much as the first time I read it. It's ...more

The Crossing of INGO by Helen Dunmore – Ingo #4 – Fantasy, 5th grade and up – So this is supposedly the conclusion but really I’m certain that there’s another one I have on order, shall see how the story continues soon enough. I enjoyed this book because it didn’t become heavy handed but certainly addressed environmental issues as characters visited oceans around the globe and discussed warming and impact of pollution. It was interesting to read a political mermaid book… how politics got into a ...more

Okay, I have fallen hopelessly in love with Ingo since sixth grade. For some obnoxious reason, The Crossing of Ingo wasn't available in American libraries, so I had to buy it--which totally wasn't a problem because no matter how old I will get these books will always have a special place in my heart. :)
To be brief, I was not disappointed!! I was SO HAPPY to see that Connor got over Elvira. I don't have any specific problem with her, besides the general "mary sue" vibe she gave everyb

All if the other books in this series, I loved! But this one just didn't grasp me like the other ones did! I was really hoping for a better ending! I, mean, it took forever to finally get through the book and it's actually an average book for me! And then somebody just dies at the end! It just seemed slow and that's not what I've come to expect from Helen. I think she may gave been a bit lost on writing this book and was just trying to think of a way to end it.

Even though I read the first 3 books in this series when I was younger it wasn't until quite recently I found out that this book exists and I've been so excitd to read it since then, and I'm so happy I have because I loved every single moment of this.

I loved being back in the world of Ingo and to follow all the characters once again on a new journey. Another thing I really like about these books is that they're so much about the ocean (yes I know it's a mermaid book so that's kind of the point)

This The Crossing of Ingo was IMO the best in the Ingo series. Although I gave this book 4 stars, I won't be putting the Ingo series on my recommended shelf, but, if you are already part way through the Ingo series then make sure you read this. I was impressed by the character development in here and a good closure for the series. I wasn't sure if I was going t

Only one thing kept this book from being a 5-star book for me (it's probably like 4.5 stars) - I felt like Dunmore was sort of hammering the environmentalist/ocean conservation drum a little too hard, and at times it took away from the story. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the ocean more than anything else and I'm passionate about keeping it healthy and vital. (Tip: Don't let go of your helium balloons. When they eventually deflate and come down, they kill lots of sea turtles.) But, while some of th ...more

buku ke 4 dari serial Ingo.

Alur cerita paling menarik dari yang serial ini.

Namun ada kekurangannya.

Buku ini menceritakan tentang perjalanan yang harus ditempati remaja bangsa Mer di awal masa dewasa mereka.

Nah, sayangnya, dengan perairan bumi yang luas ini, ceritanya kok terasa singkat ya?

Well, mungkin juga untuk menunjukkan istimewanya Sapphire dan Conor.

Sengaja bacanya diperlambat, biar ga menunggu lama kedatangan bahan bacaan berikutnya :)

Buku terakhir dari seri ini sangat BAGUS!!!
Tidak ada spoiler karena aku sama sekali tidak bisa membahas ceritanya. Akan terasa hambar dan tidak hidup. Mulai saja dibaca dan akan tahu di mana letak sisi menakjubkan dari cerita ini.

Mitos yang seharusnya hanya jadi dongeng pengantar tidur terasa sangat hidup ketika setiap kata dan alur cerita mengalir dipikiran.
Jempol buat penulisnya, jempol buat penerjemah dan editornya.
Berharap bisa menenukan buku seperti ini lagi (yang lebih spektakuler pastin

Yg amazing bagi q adalah sepertinya Helen sangat mencintai laut. Atau mungkin dia sama phobia-nya dengan q dan berharap dengan ditulisnya buku ini semua orang yg phobia seperti aq akan berubah menyukai laut. Well, dia ngga berhasil hihihi aq tetap beranggapan laut itu misterius dan menyeramkan! Betapapun akan girang-nya aq kalo bisa ketemu kaum Mer beneran hehehe tapi buku seri terakhir ini bagus. Kisah Shappire mom waktu kecil sama seperti aq, pernah tenggelam di laut. Dan Saph juga Conor kehil ...more

Novel ini saya baca pada Agustus 2010. Setelah lama menanti, tepatnya tujuh bulan setelah buku ketiga, akhirnya buku keempat terbit juga. Jika dibandingkan dengan tiga buku sebelumnya, buku keempat lebih tebal dan awalnya saya mengira ceritanya bakal lebih seru. Tapi, kenyataannya tidak seperti yang saya harapkan.

Walaupun ceritanya, para tokoh utama mengarungi Ingo, k

I really enjoyed the first 3 books in the Ingo series, and this one was no exception. It kept me in the world of Ingo, and I stayed up till about 2 am to finish it. Probably not smart when I had to get up at 6 the next day (or that day, since it was after 12.) I digress.

This book was spent mostly in Ingo, unlike the other books where it was back and forth. And I enjoyed that. It made the world of Ingo more alive to me, to know what it was like more, becuase Sapphy was getting to understand it be

I found that both 3 & 4 of the info books started to get a bit boring. I think that helen could not think of anything else to write, and they became less and less interesting, but still a good series if books.

Finally! Finishing this book with heavy breathing. The thrilling journey of four made me feel the Ingo right before my eyes. Feel sorry and had my eyes teary when it comes to Saph and Con's dad. The Atka-thingy still a mystery, though. Let me know more! :|
