Read Coraline before you see it!

This is exciting!  I know you’ve seen the ads and you’ve been curious, but if you’re on the fence about whether you want to go see Coraline in movie theaters, why don’t you read the book first?

And to make it even easier, HarperCollins is actually presenting the book free online, so you can do just that!

I think I’m going to take advantage of this myself.  Coraline is about a young girl who finds a passage into another house that’s very like her own – only better.  At least, it’s better at first—then the darker side starts to reveal itself.  Coraline is written by Neil Gaiman, who if you didn’t know already from his extensive work, you might have heard of in relation to his last book-turned-movie, Stardust—which I’ve read in its original graphic novel form.  Very different from the movie, but a very interesting read.  Gaiman just won the Newbury Medal for The Graveyard Book, about a boy who’s the only living inhabitant in a graveyard, raised by ghosts, no less!  Gaiman definitely has a fascinating – and somewhat twisted – mind, but his stuff is more than worth a look.

    The clips for this movie majorly creep me out but I may give the book a shot first to get an idea where it’s going. Thanks for the link! 🙂

    The clips creep me out, too! But I don’t know… it has such good reviews. And Gaiman really is fascinating. Read his blogs sometime, they’re great!
