This was another great story from Neil Gaiman. It's classified as a children's book, I guess because the writing style is more accessible to younger readers, and doesn't have a lot of the subtlety and nuances of adult novels. That said however, the story itself was spooky and intriguing and I gobbled this book down in one day. :) Neil Gaiman has proved yet again, as he did with Stardust, that he is definitely an author for all generations!

Written for young adults, but I'm in my 30's & I enjoyed it... Further proof that Neil Gaiman can't go wrong (as if we needed any proof) Good creepy fun.

Coraline and her family move into a building shared with others. A bit of Alice in Wonderland, but a bit more creepier.

Gaiman says that children, as a general rule, read Coraline as an adventure story while it gives adults nightmares. It hasn't given me nightmares (book usually don't -- except Cujo), but I can definitely see how this is true. I found Coraline fascinating and original.

The movie obviously was alot more mellow then the book. If you liked the movie then you should read the book, it's different and more dark then the movie and actually gets you having a few chills and leaving you saying "well that wasn't in the movie" lol

Good Book. I liked it
