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.

A spooky little book. Kind of a twisted, creepier Alice in Wonderland.

Very creepy. True to Gaiman's style. Is it for kids or grownups? Weird and thought-provoking. A fast read.

This lovely little novel has everything I love about Neil Gaiman's writing: clear, uncluttered prose; vivid, emotive settings and descriptions; unusual and yet believable characters; dramatic events; and memorable stories. In this book, the protagonist is Coraline (not Caroline), a smart, spunky girl who stands up to an evil presence that resides in her building and tries to pull Coraline into its trap. It's a book for kids and adults who like scary stories where the evil is confronted, not escaped from. And, like most good fiction, in Coraline the protagonist learns something about herself in the confrontation.

The day after Coraline moved in, Coraline went exploring....
In Coralines family's new flat are 21 windows and 14 doors. Thirteen of the doors open & close.
The 14th is locked and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.
Only it's different....
