I really like reading books by Neil Gaiman. This book is no exception. Coraline is a great Fantasy book about a girl who thinks she wants life to be better but realizes she is really happy with her parents the way they are. Her other Mother and other Father are not really what she wants. Neil Gaiman uses a lot of fantasy details to tell the story of Coraline, who turns out to be a brave girl who must fight to change things back to the way they were and save her real parents. I recommend this book and also the movie. If you see the movie first then the book goes into more detail. I think then the book is more enjoyable because you can visualize Coraline and the other characters in the story.
