-- My Thoughts --
When I first saw this book while browsing my collection of e-books, I was like: "A National Bestseller, it's gotta be good!" It is a very quick read -less than 200 pages- I finished it in an hour or so, and it was wonderful!
Coraline moves into huge old house with her parents, but they are not the only people there. Each couple of rooms ( a flat) are/is rented to other people. There are the two old talkative women, who were previous-actresses. There is the old man upstairs, who claims that he is teaching mice how to play instruments!
And there is another empty flat right behind Coraline's. As Caroline explores every inch of the garden, and then the house, she discovers a door in the drawing room that should have led to the empty flat. The door only leads to a huge brick wall, nothing else. But at night, Coraline hears noises, and she can't help but take another look at what's behind the old door.
This time, there is no brick wall, just a long hallway, and Coraline's adventure begins right when she steps foot into the hallway. She has to save her parents and three lost souls in order to get out of the horrible magic world...
What will Coraline find on the other side? Will she be able to save her parents and the three lost souls? Find out in this cute, and imaginative bestseller Coraline...
I liked this book very much, I didn't know that it was Children's Fantasy, but I still enjoyed it! You know? Sometimes you just need a break from all these love stories, and paranormal fantasies like vampires, werewolves, and zombies. You just need to leap back into childhood and enjoy a short adventure.
This book is definitely suitable for kids of all ages, it's a tale about family, love, and adventure. Want an enjoyable read? Then CORALINE is the one...
