    I've read this book many different times in many different ways. I read it off the page when it first came out. Later, I listened to Gaiman's narration of the audiobook when I was sequestered in the north woods of Wisconsin in a desperate attempt to finish book two. I watched the movie and enjoyed it. My most recent experience of the book was listening to it with my little boy on a long car ride. I wasn't sure he'd be able to get into it. Not because of the vocabulary. He's very sharp for being [...]

    Coraline is a short but delightfully dark and creepy book that just happens to feature one of my absolute favorite characters. Is it wrong that I want to be Coraline's best friend???“Because,' she said, 'when you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave.”Coraline is clever, quirky, curious and adventurous, brave and determined, independent, stubborn to no end, a bit reckless and not scared of danger. She will NEVER leave any mysterious doors locked and uninvestigated. In short, she [...]

    Has anyone ever said to you “time heals all wounds?”Well for the "villain" of this story that is clearly not the case. It’s easy to pinpoint Coraline’s bravery and talk about her experience, but that’s not what this review is about. I want to consider the “other mother” and her story. I mean what exactly is her story? We can only presume that she has been doing this kind of trickery for years, perhaps even centuries. We don’t really know a great deal about her. She has three vict [...]

    I saw the film before I read the book, which is not how I like to do things, as it can often be like taping a hockey game and having someone tell you the final score before you've had a chance to see the game for yourself. However, I can say that seeing the film first didn't really spoil the book for me. Coraline starts off rather slowly but this independent, thoughtful, odd, distant, misunderstood child soon gains the reader's sympathy. This becomes more intense as Coraline gets more deeply enm [...]

    Edit : I'm sorry guys, I won't be able to post the review today because it's already midnight and I was busy :( REVIEW TO COME TOMORROW.'She left us here' said one of the voices. 'she stole our hearts, and she stole our souls, and she took our lives away, and she left us here, and she forgot about us in the dark.' This is a story about a girl named Coraline Jones, She and her parents move to a new house but they don't own all of the house. They just own part of it and they also have neighbors wh [...]

    This a perfect, traditional fairy* tale, with a slightly surreal twenty-first century warp. The writing is as magical as the plot. Its thirteen chapters are delightful, dark, and funny, with a heroine many can relate to, as child, parent, or both. Coraline is intelligent, inquisitive, slightly contrary, hates being bored, and wishes her parents paid her more attention, and didn’t feed her “recipes”. Perhaps, she wishes she had different parents. And you should always be careful what you wi [...]

    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 d [...]

    I was such a cowardly kid that I never managed to read more than the blurb on the backNow that I've finally summoned the courage to give it a try - I wish I read it sooner. I love this novel. Unlike Gaiman's fiction for adults, every sentence, every word has its purpose. And finally, Gaiman does not throw in some weird sex scene. Can I get a hallelujah? One especially dull and rainy day traps young Coraline inside the new house. Her parents are busy and she must entertain herself. She finds a li [...]

    This is the perfect Halloween read! It's creepy, eerie, and beautifully written. Now I want to rewatch the movie! I loved it :D

    Coraline was woken by the mid-morning sun, full on her face.For a moment she felt utterly dislocated. She did not know where she was; she was not entirely sure WHO she was. It is astonishing just how much of what we are can be tied to the beds we wake up in in the morning, and it is astonishing how fragile that can be.This is like Stephen King's It re-written for children.I adore Stephen King, obviously, and I highly enjoyed this creepy and horrifying children's book that Gaiman has written.Cora [...]

    Coraline is a ravishingly wonderful tale of a brave girl confronting ghastly demons. Opening new doors, she crafts an alternate house of monstrous reality, of fear draping the walls, of greed burying love. And now she has to redefine her rusty, curious world.It is astonishing just how much of what we are can be tied to the beds we wake up in in the morning, and it is astonishing how fragile that can be.Coralineentrancingly reflects the woeful fears and trials all children experience. The power o [...]

    I've been looking for that book that would satisfy my craving to be creeped out, and sadly a few books I tried recently didn't do it for me. I didn't expect anything with this book, and that little shiver down my spine that has been evading me? This book gave it to me!I was not a huge fan of American Gods, but I promised that I would give Neil Gaiman another shot someday. I figured if I enjoyed anything of his it would be this book. Despite my gripes with American Gods I couldn't deny that I fou [...]

    Who doesn’t like a freaky middle-grade book to snack on (at nighttime) ever once and a while? I was in the mood for something freakish and gothic. I got it. (Plus, writing research for middle-grade books. I am a writer, after all.)So between taking notes about style and description and length of MG books, I enjoyed the story immensely. A lot of a lot, okay? It’s written in such a simple way. It probably mentions about 3 or 4 times how Coraline is actually feeling. The rest is fact. This happ [...]

    Deliciously disturbing, a modern fairytale with a surrealistic feel. I mean you’re stuck in an alternate dimension with parents with sewed on buttons for eyes, friendless except for a talking cat with a bad attitude. Coraline is totally believable; a bored sweet kid who gets herself into and out of a terrifying situation by being gutsy & resourceful. So unless you figure you’ve outgrown fairytales (which is kind of a shame) what’s not to like about it?Nasty flu & a crummy day at wo [...]

    Creepy, creepy, creepy. This book made me feel like I'd just awoken from a disturbing dream I couldn't shake, but couldn't quite remember, either. And the movie looks terrifying.

    Neil Gaiman weaves a chillingly beautiful story just as a spider weaves her immaculate web. *Poker face*This is the tale of young Coraline Jones who moves to her new house with her parents. She is a lively little child who loves to explore and play around. But her parents are very busy and hardly have time to play with her. So, life is pretty much boring for the young lady.But then, she finds a door.*Ooh, ooh, does it leads to another world filled with talking animals and wonderful characters?*Y [...]

    Neil Gaiman, Coraline (Harper, 2002)I'm not exactly sure what to say about this minor gem. It's a kids' book, but not really a kids' book. It's a fantasy/horror novel, but not a fantasy/horror novel. It has minor similarities to about a hundred books to be found over the ages, both children's and adult, but nothing strong enough to be called an influence (at least, not one that wears its heart on its sleeve). About the best thing I can come up with would be a much darker version of Roald Dahl's [...]

    this book makes me really cross i missed the 3d movie when it was out. there are definitely things i would have loved to have seen all up in my face. i think if i had read this as a young girl, it would be one of my favorite books ever. as a (physical) adult, i enjoyed it, but ive read too much in my life to be scared of it, or surprised by it, which is a shame. im going to turn this review into a request for people to scare me. when i was little, my brother would hide under my bed until after i [...]

    Coraline is my second Neil Gaiman book. Fortunately, the Milk was my first and it didn't impress me much. But this book! I love it. It made me feel many things: frustration, hope, chills etc. I felt like a kid again, listening to a fairy tale.Meet Coraline. She's a girl who feels a little ignored by her parents and seems to have nothing much to do, but just go exploring. She soon finds a door that takes her in a wonderful world where her Other Parents live. They look exactly the same as hers, th [...]

    Jedna od najdražih čitalačkih uspomena iz detinjstva mi je Alisa u zemlji čuda, a i jedna od najstrašnijih, da budem iskrena. Mislim da sam prvu noćnu moru u vezi sa nekom knjigom imala baš posle čitanja Alise. Sada se već slabo sećam sna, ali znam da je u njemu bilo i rupe, i zeca, i one strašne KraljicePoprilično godina kasnije uživala sam u mračnoj avanturi jedne druge devojčice. Pošto sam sada starija, zrelija (mada se mnogi ne bi složili sa tim) i hrabrija, ovaj put su noć [...]

    “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”This was dark and witty and theatrical and Gothic and utterly utterly adorable. It was sometimes hard to remember that this was aimed at a younger audience as the beauty of the writing and the dark turns of the plot completely enveloped me. This is my first Neil Gaiman but I know it won't be the last! Instant fan!

    Review also posted here4.5 out of 5 starsI had watched the movie Coraline 4 years ago but I never knew it was originally a book until earlier this year. Yeah, I know, it’s shameful, but what can we do? Anyway, since I liked the movie, I told myself I was gonna love the book too, thus I added it to my TBR.I had forgotten about it until my recent post about quiet and jumpy horror. I wasn’t sure what books to use for the quiet category, so I asked Evelyn and she mentioned this. Obviously, my in [...]

    “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”It may seem uninspired to start this review with one of the most famous quotes of the novel, but after all, it does accentuate so well what "Coraline" signifies. Presenting an account of a brave soul confronted with the terrors and fears of childhood fantasies becoming true, Neil Gaiman allows us to get involved with his protagonist, a young girl called Coraline, [...]

    Reto #10 PopSugar 2017: Un libro con un gato en la portadaUna grata sorpresa. Le había hecho el quite a este libro desde hace mucho tiempo porque la película me había desagradado enormemente, aunque más por el estilo de animación que por el argumento.Si bien está descrito como un libro infantil, jamás lo recomendaría para niños; la atmósfera que crea Neil Gaiman para su historia es agobiante y muy inquietante, con descripciones que más bien son de pesadilla (no quise ni imaginarme “ [...]

    WTF DID I JUST READ??? This is a children's book, but you certainly don't have to be a child to appreciate this book. Don't listen to that bullshit your (future) grandkids are trying to feed you. You're never gonna be too old for Coraline. I remember falling in love with the trailer for the movie back in 2009, but I never actually watched it. Later, I found out that this was actually a book and not some Tim Burton-esque (but not Tim Burton himself) brilliance, so obviously I HAD to read it!! And [...]

    SO glad I got the chance to read this, even if it was for a lame school assignment. I need to pick up more books by Neil Gaiman, he's such a fantastic writer. This story was both whimsical and dark and I had such a time reading it!

    MY FIRST BOOK OF THE YEAR!And I can't decide if I want to do THISOR THISLike NO. RATS ARE NOT FOR JOKING STUFFS! EWW.Though it kind of was.Anyhow, I amseriously in love with Neil Gaiman and his creepy, crafty brain. Like sometimes I just sit and wonder, how do authors come up with these things. This story was short and simple but lingering. In Coraline's("not Caroline's") new house, there are exactly 14 doors. Coraline knows this because she loves to explore. How many blue things, how many windo [...]

    As usual, I really enjoy Gaiman's style of storytelling, and can even go so far as to say that I appreciate his vivid imagination. His writing craftsmanship is undeniably skilful. It's his chosen stories that I don't care much for.Coraline is the first children's book I've read by Gaiman, a fact I was quite intrigued by before I started reading. It's a quite interesting novella, more of an exploration of children's imagination than an actual fantasy story, but it is enjoyable at that. As a child [...]
