A couple of weeks back, I managed to catch the trailer for Coraline the movie (believe it or not, they haven’t released the movie in Malaysia yet). The trailer looked so good that I decided to read the book first before catching the movie and I'm so glad I've read it.
I won’t go into too much detail about the book since I’m sure almost everyone has heard or read it already. Reading Coraline was definitely an experience. It is a beautifully written, dark fairy tale that was simply unputdownable. The creepy settings and the scary plot held my attention till the last page. I also absolutely loved Coraline’s character; she was smart, resourceful and brave. An excellent book filled with dark adventure. Can’t wait to watch the movie.
PS- To eager Malaysians who await the release, news is Coraline will be showing in September... woo hoo!
