Book #36 - Coraline

by Neil Gaiman

Illustrated by Dave McKean

2nd book finished for the R.I.P. Autumn Challenge

My Rating: 3.5/5 (Good)

This was actually a reread for me but the first time I read it, it was the UK hardback edition which wasn't illustrated. So it was fun to read it again with the illustrations this time, which do help add to the spooky factor. It's not an entirely original premise but it's a clever fairytale nonetheless.

  1. Yes, much more fun with McKean's great illustrations.

  2. Love it.

    I'd read it before, but I spent a good part of today listening to it. (I pirated the audiobook.)

    I love the creepiness.
