Ngs seem marvelous in the other flat The food is better The toy box is filled with wind up angels that flutter around the bedroom books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth But there's another mother and another father and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl They want to change her and nev 355 When you're scared but you still do it anyway that's braveI think this would have been one of my favorite books if I read it as a child but unfortunately 20 something me felt like it was lacking I went into this with too high of expectations because the movie gave me nightmares after I saw it in theaters Basically I pretty much expected this to be a novelization of the movie that was not the case Though the big plot points remain the same the movie was fleshed out and atmospheric and I was disappointed But all in all if you're looking for a spooky book that only will take you a couple of hours to read this is it

CoralineEr let her go Other children are trapped there as well lost souls behind the mirrors Coraline is their only hope of rescue She will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find if she is to save the lost children her ordinary life and herself Critically acclaimed and award winning author Neil Gaiman will delight readers with his first novel for all ag Coraline not Caroline thank you the little girl who was small for her age and found herself in darkest danger was the subject of Neil Gaiman’s 2002 publication which was in Gaiman’s own words “refreshingly creepy”Gaiman said that he started writing the book for his young daughter Holly around the time they moved to America but unintentionally wrote it very slowly “one word at a time” and thus stretched out the project for years Refreshingly creepy is maybe the best way to describe this young adult work that also has darker elements references to myth and the occult that will probably fly over the heads of younger readers Older readers will find Coraline living down the street from Charles Addams place and also backyard neighbors of Ray Bradbury’s The October Country folks“There was a tiny doubt inside her like a maggot in an apple core”But Gaiman’s Coraline never achieves the campy fun of Addams or Bradbury leaning instead towards a Tim Burtonesue darkness that is charming in its own way Though the 2009 film was directed by Burton collaborator Henry SelickGaiman masterfully blends haunting elements of nighttime mystery with his own inimitable style of writing to create a setting for Coraline to explore Coraline’s plucky little girl written soberly for a slightly mature reader struggles perfectly with the arcane machinations of the other mother“It doth not hurt” whispered one faint voiceFinally Gaiman’s uniue ability to craft a sepulchral niche that is akin to Lovecraft but playful reminds the reader of his brilliant work The Graveyard Book An excellent introduction to his canon this is also a must read for a Gaiman fan
