coraline_coverCoraline by Neil Gaiman is a wonderfully creepy book.  It tells the story of Coraline, a young girl who has just moved into her new flat.  While exploring, she finds a door that leads to a bricked-up wall-until one night, it leads to a passage.  Following that passage, Coraline discovers her other mother, and a wonderfully intriguing world similar to her own, yet not quite the same.  Choosing to go back to the real world is when the story really begins.

Coraline is a wonderful book, written in the same way as a children’s book, but covering older material.  I enjoyed it very much, and any fan of fantasy and spooks is sure to love it.  The fact that it is being made into a movie is what made me pick it up, and I think picturing it as a movie helped add to the experience even more.  I highly recommend this book.
