3 0ut of 5

Gaiman has the gift of writing and a special talent of writing scary books for children. Sometimes I am surprised he can get away it. I definitely see this book as being too frightening for some younger children. The reader can definitely get hooked by this book. However, at one point near the end Coraline wakes up from her dream/nightmare and I felt that should have been the end of story. I completely lost interest after that. I do love the way Gaiman has of encouraging all his readers to get in touch with their vivid imagination. I am going to watch the movie now and see if it changes my view on the ending of this unique story.
