    Coraline is a short but delightfully dark and creepy book that just happens to feature one of my absolute favorite characters Is it wrong that I want to be Coraline's best friend “Because' she said 'when you're scared but you still do it anyway that's brave” Coraline is clever uirky curious and adventurous brave and determined independent stubborn to no end a bit reckless and not scared of danger She will NEVER leave any mysterious door

Coraline

The day after they moved in Coraline went exploringIn Coraline's family's new flat are twenty one windows and fourteen doors Thirteen of the doors open and close The fourteenth is locked and on the other side is only a brick wall until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own Only it's different At first thi I ve read this book many different times in many different ways I read it off the page when it first came out Later I listened to Gaiman s narration of the audiobook when I was seuestered in the north woods of Wisconsin in a desperate attempt to finish book two I watched the movie and enjoyed it My most recent experience of the book was listening to it with my little boy on a long car ride I wasn t sure he d be able to get into it Not because of the vocabulary He s very sharp for being 45 He s good with words But sometimes he gets a little scared Despite my worries he seemed to enjoy it He paid attention attention asking for us to turn it back on after we stopped by the side of the road A day later he excitedly told me all about the story apparently forgetting I d been in the car too All of that was months ago Fast forward to now Dad Oot said Do you know the guy who wrote CoralineThe uestion caught me by surprise The two of us were driving to a party together a friend was having a bonfire and I was amazed that he was thinking about anything other than ssI do I said His name is Neil Gaiman Do you have his phone number he askedNo I saidDo you know where he livesI do I saidAre you his friendThat brought me up short For Oot that s a simple uestion If you meet someone and play with them they re you re friend Easy For adults these things are harder And it s doubly hard for me these days My life has changed so much over the last five years and my previously established metric for friendship doesn t work very well any You see for the majority of my life a friend was someone who would say help me move a couch Someone you could bum 10 dollars off of if you needed to A friend was someone who felt comfortable enough to come over to my house without calling first Then if I wasn t home they would let themselves in eat out of my fridge and start watching TV While I m terribly fond of him Neil Gaiman has never done any of these things Then again neither have any of the other authors I ve met over the last few years I m painfully aware of the need for new friendship metrics but I haven t managed to develop a good set yetThat won t make any sense to my boy but still I try to be honest with him whenever I can I don t know if we re friends I say But we re colleaguesWhat s a colleagues he asks right on cue That means we know each other and do the same job I explain Oh yes he says You re both authors It makes me proud when he says that I m proud that my boy knows I write books Do you know his address Oot asks and it takes me a while to realize that he s returning to his previous line of uestioning I do I said not bothering to point out that knowing where someone lives and knowing their address is pretty much the same thingCan you send him a letter I could I say Oot pauses for a moment then and I realize that this has been the point of the whole conversation He wants to send Neil Gaiman a message What would you like me to write to him I ask You should tell him he sure knows how to write a scary story So there you go You don t really need me to tell you how I feel about one of Gaiman s books at this point You know I love his writing Instead I m offering up my boy s unvarnished opinion Did he think the story was scary Absolutely But he still wanted us to turn it back on as soon as we were back in the car What s he was still thinking about Coraline months later

Ngs seem marvelous in the other flat The food is better The toy box is filled with wind up angels that flutter around the bedroom books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth But there's another mother and another father and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl They want to change her and nev Has anyone ever said to you time heals all wounds Well for the villain of this story that is clearly not the case It s easy to pinpoint Coraline s bravery and talk about her experience but that s not what this review is about I want to consider the other mother and her story I mean what exactly is her story We can only presume that she has been doing this kind of trickery for years perhaps even centuries We don t really know a great deal about her She has three victims prior to her attempts on Coraline Two appear to be fairly normal children The third speaks in a form of Shakespearean English which I took for proof of a victim many years previous We don t know a great deal about the actual house either or how long it has actually been standing The descriptions speak of age But how much age are we talking It s all a little bit of a mystery What drove this woman to such depravity What happened in her life that she needed to feed upon the love of children What has she lost Where did it all begin I can only speculate But one thing remains an absolute certainty to my mind something terrible happened to the other mother a long time ago something awful that drove her into the deepest depths of despair and as a result she clings to the essence of life love The movie adaption gives some brief idea of where she came from she is Wyborn s Grandma s sister But I m not sure how much of this we can actually consider Although the movie was written in collaboration with Gaiman neither of the characters actually appear in the book So I m left with even speculation What do you thinkIs the other mother a villain or is she simply a misunderstood victim of fate Postscript I wish I had a friend like Coraline whilst growing up She s one cool kidFacebook Twitter Insta Academia
