Coraline

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!

Oh I love Coraline. When I first read it last year I was totally creeped out. (But in a good way). It was so dark and magical.

That stinks that you haven't gotten the movie in theaters yet! I just picked up the DVD this past week. Now I feel bad!

I read it last fall and loved it, and then watched the movie in February. It was an excellent adaptation. My husband hadn't read the book but saw the movie and was really creeped out.
