Coraline
Coraline | Neil Gaiman
In Coraline's family's new flat there's a locked door. On the other side is a brick walluntil Coraline unlocks the door . . . and finds a passage to another flat in another house just like her own. Only different. The food is better there. Books have pictures that writhe and crawl and shimmer. And there's another mother and father there who want Coraline to be their little girl. They want to change her and keep her with them. . . . Forever. Coraline is an extraordinary fairy tale/nightmare from the uniquely skewed imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman.

A creepy yet endearing read. I love the movie and finally decided to read the book to fulfill a reading challenge prompt. This is one of those rare times where I love both the movie and the book. Coraline is an unexpected heroine. Calm but acknowledging her fear along the way.

FYI Neil Gaiman has a lovely voice. He narrated the audiobook.

behudd Gaiman‘s voice is one of my favs. I could listen to him read the dictionary & love it lol 2d
Zuhkeeyah @behudd Seriously tho! Does he narrate other books? 1d
behudd @Zuhkeeyah I think he does most of his! Neverwhere is my favorite Gaiman if you‘re looking for another one :) 16h

Love this book more with every re-read. 💜

The mix of creepy with the wonderment of childhood imagination pulls me into this story every time I read it. If you've never read it, do yourself a favor and add it to your TBR.

A perfect example of speculative fiction. It breaks down the 3rd wall and creates this book that is filled with imagery. It shows how you can be kind, curious, and courageous.

I love this movie/book! I would definitely want to show this in my classrooms, to show that we should be appreciated of what we have and that the grass isn‘t always greener on the other side. I believe this is also a great movie to show because of how beautifully told it is and how beautiful the movie is!

Coraline is a book/movie about a young girl who is unhappy in her life, and finds a passage way to another world where everything is greater. She finds out that things aren‘t always as they seem, and sometimes what we have is what‘s best for us.

The movie Coraline follows the life of a young girl who discovers a door that leads her to an alternate universe. The movie includes elements of speculative fiction such as button eyes, talking animals, and magical toys.

I own both this version and the GN and decided to read both and compare. The GN actually uses the original text in its entirety, but I still found the reading experience so drastically different! I love the original print version, and the Chris Riddell illustrations in my edition, but the illustrations in the GN version look nothing like what I imagine when I read the original and I just couldn‘t get into that adaptation.

Gaiman tells a good story, but I didn‘t enjoy this one very much. I can‘t put my finger on what didn‘t work for me, but I prefer The Graveyard Book to this one. I‘m not sorry to have finally read it, but I‘m glad it‘s over and that it was short. 🤷🏻‍♀️

This is a solid pick for most ages. I think Gaiman did a great job of nailing the main character and making her realistic with facets like being annoying when she‘s bored and having that sense of adventure the you g often have. I enjoyed this thoroughly but was a tad underwhelmed by the ending….I guess I just expected something more dramatic to happen. Overall, it was fun and I enjoyed the author narrating his own work in the audiobook!

I only had a slight idea of what this book was about as I‘ve never read it or seen the movie(s) based on it.
I liked the story. Did not like Coraline at times she came across a bit bratty. She was a smart girl though.
Over all the characters are good and the story is good. I can see why this is a favorite.
Recommend.

"You really don't understand, do you?" she said. "I don't want whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted? Just like that, and it didn't mean anything. What then?"

Skin crawlingly nightmarish in every way! This spine-chilling tale is very likely haunting me even as I'm writing this & probably will until my dying day. My stomach can't help but churn at the prospect of buttons for eyes! Vividly imaginative, check-under-your-bed kind of spooky & exquisitely written, with the most terrifying antagonist I've ever laid eyes on - The Other Mother! Classic Gaiman horror, unique in every way. For the young & old! 😳

Bless Coraline‘s cool head and brave heart. She‘s an inspiring protagonist, while still being entirely relatable.
Gaiman combines incredible fantasy with the real and very ordinary world.
He encapsulates perfectly what I remember it can be like, to be a child in an adult‘s world.
A book with a lot of morals hidden with the story which will keep you thinking after the final page.

LiteraryinLawrence Somehow I have never read this book. I need to fix that! 7mo

A creepy tale that has its own personality away from the movie. It makes home feel more a place of reassurance and tells you that not everyone who says that they love you really means it.
