Short review: This adaptation of Coraline wasn't it.

Long review: I wanted to read this one after seeing it as a new arrival at a library. I glanced at the blurb, making it seem intriguing, but I headed in with low expectations after discovering it was an illustrated adaptation, and the ones I've read disappointed me. When I closed the final page, it was okay.

It starts with Coraline moving to a new house in an undisclosed location in the opening pages. Everything looks typical until she stumbles across a way to go to another house like the one she lives in, save for a few changes. The toys are better there, but most prominently, there are people who look like her parents, except they had black buttons for eyes. I'm unsure where to begin, but I'll try, the characters are not that easy to connect or relate with, even though I liked them. They lack depth. The worldbuilding is underexplored as there's no reason for some people having black buttons for eyes, or why there's another dimension full of ghosts. The author tried to combine aspects of horror and fantasy in the form of magical realism, but I wasn't that frightened. At least the climax was dramatic and the conclusion finished Coraline on a high note, with Coraline beating the antagonists and escaping from their house.

Coraline is just top tier children's horror. Gaiman completely trusts the reader to be brave and push through like the protagonist. My daughter has loved this story since she was 4 and fighting her own monster (cancer). Her introduction was through the movie of course, so getting to read a slightly different plot was a lot of fun. The book is even spookier than the movie! I'm not to five stars on this just because the art style could have been so much better, it's very blank slate, imagine yourself as this bland every-girl girl. I love blue haired movie Coraline best.

Love this story, this version is a little lack luster. The artwork leaves a lot to be desired, but it's still a good read, especially for those that prefer graphic novels. ( )

What a lovely treasure this was. I watched the movie long before I got my hands onto a book, but I absolutely loved it still. There are some obvious differences between the two, but I personally find that they each have pluses. Either format, this is a wonderful mystery/scary story for a younger audience. It's not too gory or disturbing. I read the illustrated version and personally feel that the illustrations by P. Craig Russell really brought this book alive for me. Awesome work! ( )

Coraline is an explorer and you get that in first few pages of the novel.Coraline and his parents moved into a big new house.Miss Spink andMiss Forcible lived in flat below Coraline’s.And in flat above lived an old crazy man who was training a Mouse Circus.

There were 21 windows and 14 doors in the house.But one mysterious door at the end of the drawing room opened into a wall.It was meant to separate apartments in the house.

One night Coraline woke up when something went Tik-tik-tik-tik.On following a black figure she opened the door that lead to wall.Surprisingly the wall was replaced by darkness.Next day she walks her way in darkness only to find a house similar to her house. She finds her other parents who look similar to her parents but only their eyes being replaced by black buttons.Coraline finds this house better than hers.Her other parents ask her to stay with them but she refused to do so and went back only to find that her parents were in the mirror.

Coraline has to be brave and get her parents back.She has a talking black cat and three ghost children for help.Also she has tiny china duck, a thimble, a strange little brass coin, two paper clips and a stone with a hole in it for rescue.

After reading thoughts

Neil Gaiman says it is a creepy book for adults and adventure for children.And reading the book just makes the statement true.

Coraline comes as a very strong character in choosing between have’s and want’s.And you will want to keep turning the pages to figure out what does she do next.The way she finds her parents is interesting and something that will intrigue you.

All the character’s on the other side of the wall are creepy and Neil Gaiman justifies their role in the book.

The graphics do justify the story.I liked the way the other side of wall is drawn and represented.You ll find the colours changing from pleasant to dark and then again to pleasant as the story progresses.

Things I Like

Caroline
Miss Spink andMiss Forcible and their younger versions in the other side of house.And also their ability to read fortune from tea leaves.
Talking cat and talking dogs
Black buttons
Three ghost children
And ohh yes did i forget to mention a HAND in the summary.I leave it on readers to find it out.
Coraline is often confused between children fiction and Young Adults.But it has been nominated for YA awards.As far as children are concerned, I leave it on their parents to decide whats best for them.
