I’ve heard a lot that children books by Neil Gaiman are scarier than his books for adults. I’ve already read most of his books for adults and I finished Coraline today. And it is much scarier than anything else I read by him. It’s also very gripping and I would definitely read it to my children (if I had any).
It’s beautifully told and I love Coraline, she’s such a sweet girl. It also pulls you right into the world and doesn’t let you go. Exactly what you would expect from a novel by Neil Gaiman. I know why I love that guy.
Only two problems with it:
- It made me miss my station in the subway.
- It’s short.
Btw. They’re making a Coraline movie, in case you didn’t know.
