I loved this book. I could never put it down. It always kept me hanging.
Neil Gaiman Fan
In Neil Gaiman's book Coraline he shows quite scary sides. Which can be scary for little kids pre-k-1. This is a book more for upper grades in 5th, 6th, 7th, and so forth. I think it is a very great book. I think that the mystery and adventure in the book is very well written. A lot of stories are written too scary or not scary enough and Neil definatley used the right amount of scariness. He balanced it out with the mystery and the adventure.
Coraline young pre-teen adventurer, finds a closet and a mysterious cat, a nameless cat perhaps. She wants to go but the other mother doesn't want her to go. Face to face with an evil creature trapping her Coraline needs to find her way out, rescue her parents, and help this nameless cat. Quite an adventure would you agree???
Pre-teens should read book. If you like scary and mystery.
Dude I think this was an awesome book and I recommend it to all you out there to read this book. Peace out.
When I first picked up this book, my younger sister commented that it was rumored to be disturbing & she wouldn't read it - I read several chapters, which was enough to learn that not only were the pictures illustrated in the book unusually disturbing, but the overall idea definitely shouldn't SHOULDN'T be exposed to CHILDREN under the age of 12.
Coraline - Neil Gailman
It may have been imaginative, and very creative, but I strongly urge other parents to be cautious about buying this book for your children..I'm in my late teen years and even I gets chills reading it!
Coraline is an amazing (yet a bit disturbing, but in a good way) story, about a young girl called Coraline, who finds an amazing adventure inside her own home. All she wants is an adventure, and she gets one all right. Everything is the complete opposite to the real world, everyone and everything is fun at first, but as she meets her oh so sweet other mothers dark side, things go from a dream, to a nightmare.She gets trapped in her nightmare, and her real parents go missing. Will Coraline ever escape from her dreading new world, along with her new friends : Cat, 3 Souls, other Misses Spink and Forcible, and hundreds of dogs. Make sure you read the fantastic 'Coraline' !

I feel Coraline is a compelling horror story only lacking in one field. I feel the author lacks in his grasp of the readers attention. It falls short of that one aspect that hooks you into the story.
It is one of the best books I have ever read!
I love this book!!!
Coraline is very spooky. I've read it twice, but still couldn't read it before bed. I loved it though!!! I'm in high school, but I would still recommend reading it. I would say it's probably for ages 12 and up. Younger kids could read it and there's nothing bad in it, it just gets kind of spooky and the illustrations are spooky too!!! If you like a spooky story-read this one!!!!
