Coraline – Neil Gaiman


Buy on Amazon

 

The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring….

In Coraline’s family’s new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close.

The fourteenth 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.

At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom, books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer, little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth. But there’s another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.

Critically acclaimed and award-winning author Neil Gaiman will delight readers with his first novel for all ages.

    1. I would highly recommend reading it or watching the movie. The world Neil Gaiman created is very unique. It’s our pleasure. What kind of biographies have you read? So that I can get an idea of what you enjoy reading. Are there any books you enjoyed reading that you think we should recommend to others?

      1. I picked up “Impeachment: A Citizens Guide” by Cass Sunstein at the library before a vacation. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy reading it but I wanted to know it’s contents. I ended up devouring it on my 5 am flight (I’m sure the other passengers loved being blinded by my reading light in the midst of a blacked out cabin). Anyway, it’s recommended if you’re interested in learning about American law/history/politics.

        As far as biographies go, I actually haven’t read one since I was in grade school. I’ve heard Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow is excellent. I just don’t have an interest to revisit American history at this time.

      2. I will definitely have a look at Impeachment and add it to our list of recommendations. I’m sure there are many others who would also be caught off guard by what the book has to offer. Thank you so much for the recommendation.

        Biographies go far and wide. Would you like to be inspired by Elon Musk and his work ethic? Or find out what it takes to be one of the best elite soldiers in the world? You can never go wrong with Man’s search for meaning. It’s all about preference. I’ll leave a link to Amazon’s Best Sellers in Biographies and hopefully, you’ll stumble upon something that catches your eye. If you found something please let me know! I’d love to hear about it!
