Coraline
By Neil Gaiman
Performed by Neil Gaiman
2008/11 – Compact Disk
Harper Children’s Audio
0061660167
180 minutes 3 CDs
$9.95

I decided to buy the audiobook instead of reading the book. I had listened to Gaiman’s Graveyard Book and fell in love with the production and Gaiman’s wonderfully creepy voice. So, I wasn’t disappointed in the least! Spend a couple of extra bucks and get the CDs, you won’t regret it. Now I’m off to see the movie in 3D. Gaiman’s got me totally hooked.

PS: I went to see Coraline and I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be. I enjoyed it but didn’t like the changes from the book. As I’ve always said, “you can’t judge a book by its movie.” And this is one case where it’s true. Oh, I understand that books and movies are two different experiences, but I felt the movie pandered to Hollywood’s needs and not the integrity of the story. Glad I went, but I wouldn’t recommend the movie. I suggest the audio or the book. Case closed.

    Spoiler Warning!!!!

    I hated that Coraline needed to be “rescued” in the movie! In the book she confronted the evil and dealt with it!
