Publisher Description

A full cast edition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of New York Times bestselling and Newbery Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman’s modern classic, Coraline.

While exploring her new home, a young girl named Coraline unlocks a door to reveal a hidden passage. Intrigued, she ventures deep into a mysterious mirror realm, a world eerily similar yet darkly different from her own. There another mother and another father greet her, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Before long, the miraculous turns sinister, and Coraline must use her wits and courage to save herself―and the other trapped souls she finds along the way.

Filled with enchantments and terrors alike, this winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker Awards is a dazzling feat of imagination from a modern literary master.

"Originally I intended to read this to my daughters as a before-bed reading. However, since they had already seen the movie, both decided that it was too scary to read before sleeping. So I decided to read it myself. In short, I loved it. Well written, Mr. Gaiman captures the point of view of his main character so well that it could have easily been written by a girl like Coraline. All the characters are incredible, Mr. Gaiman focuses all of his efforts on the protagonist and the antagonist, and the secondary characters are exactly that, secondary. No fill in here, and no unnecessary side stories that detract from the main plot. And las but not least the story is fantastic, creepy and scary and incredibly satisfying. I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed."

Quotes

  • “A cast of talented British actors gives voice to this new audio edition of Neil Gaiman’s classic middle-grade novel…Julian Rhind-Tutt’s narration underscores the beautiful writing and eerie atmosphere. Pixie Davies’s Coraline sounds intrepid and brave, even when she’s frightened. Julian Clary offers an excellently sardonic and long-suffering cat voice. And the singing rats are especially creepy. The other actors enliven the characters on both sides of the door who help or hinder Coraline as she works to outwit the Other Mother and save her real parents. It all makes for magical—and scary—listening.”

    " Loved the full cast performance if this audiobook! Very quick read with it’s 3.5 hours. Only thing I will criticise is that if I hadn’t seen the movie before I think the quick storytelling would have let me down a bit. I love a good detail filled story which Gaiman‘s aren’t really, so I knew what I was getting into. Overall a sure recommendation. "

    " Not only are the voicing and background sounds captivating to listen to and well-suited to the content, the character is wonderfully realized - how novel to have a girl character who is brave but not brash, able but not super powered, and so very human in a way we all wish we could be. The parents are not ogres, just a bit preoccupied and there is a gentleness to the scariest moments that draws one in. "

    " Typically, I do not find myself reading children's books. I made an exception this time, and I am so glad I did. Needless to say, it is a very simple read and is not too long. The images are fantastic. For those who have seen the film, they are completely different. The overall plot is similar, but the individual scenes and characterization could not be more different. The book is pretty dark and is filled with odd and creepy images of Coraline's alternate reality (this is the best way to describe it without giving too much away). I would definitely say give it a read. I recommend it to readers ten and up- especially those that like being creeped out and/or enjoyed the film version. "

    " This book is terrifying. How can this be a children's book? I nearly died of fright trying to get through it myself and I am a grown woman. But it was good. But it was SKEERY! I give it three stars for being a Stephen King novel parading around in a a children's book's clothing. "
