Divided into flats years before, there is a brick wall behind a door where once there was a corridor and one day it is corridor again, down which the intrepid Coraline wanders. And so a nightmare-ish mystery begins that takes Coraline into the arms of counterfeit parents and a life that isn't quite right. Can Coraline get out? Can she find her real parents? Will life ever be the same again? "I think this book will nudge "Alice In Wonderland" out of its niche at last. It is the most splendidly original, weird, and frightening book I have read, and yet full of things children will love." - Diana Wynne Jones. "This book will send a shiver down your spine, out through your shoes and into a taxi to the airport. It has the delicate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece. And you will never think about buttons in quite the same way again." - Terry Pratchett.Hide synopsis

This is a well written, enchanting story. This edition has wonderful drawings and just enough mystery to keep you turning the pages in a hurry. Highly recommended. The movie was fun, but you have to read it to appreciate Gaiman's whimsy.
Neil Gaiman's novel is a smart and witty psychological deconstruction of the modern myth of parental affect, the illusion of the perfect family and the social control of the well-behaved child. Shifting between a sense of mild desperation and the qrotesque horror that springs from organized family ...

This is the strangest, deliciously creepy book I have read in recent memory. I could not put this book down. It is not a long story, but is definitely satisfyingly complete. The illustrations just add to the flavor.
