Descripción del producto
'I was looking forward to Coraline, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was enthralled. This is a marvellously strange and scary book' Philip Pullman, Guardian 'Sometimes funny, always creepy, genuinely moving, this marvellous spine-chiller will appeal to readers from nine to ninety' Books for Keeps 'If any writer can get the guys to read about the girls, it should be Neil Gaiman. His new novel Coraline is a dreamlike adventure' Daily Telegraph 'This book will send a shiver down your spine, out through your shoes and into a taxi to the airport. It has the delicate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece. And you will never think about buttons in quite the same way again' Terry Pratchett
Reseña del editor
When a young girl ventures through a hidden door, she finds another life with shocking similarities to her own. Coraline has moved to a new house with her parents and she is fascinated by the fact that their 'house' is in fact only half a house! Divided into flats years before, there is a brick wall behind a door where once there was a corridor. One day it is a corridor again and the intrepid Coraline wanders down it. And so a nightmare-ish mystery begins that takes Coraline into the arms of counterfeit parents and a life that isn't quite right. Can Coraline get out? Can she find her real parents? Will life ever be the same again?Ver Descripción del producto

La historia, mezcla de fantasía y terror, cuenta cómo Coraline y sus padres se mudan a una vieja casa; tan grande que se ha dividido en varios apartamentos que están habitados por unos pintorescos inquilinos. Como sus padres están siempre trabajando, Coraline pasa gran parte del tiempo sola, y se dedica a deambular por la casa y sus jardines. Pero un día descubre una puerta escondida en una pared del salón de su casa; y al abrila, un pasadizo que lleva a un extraño lugar.
Y no cuento más, que son sólo 150 páginas.
Al parecer esta novela surgió de un cuento que su autor le contaba a sus hijas cada noche antes de dormir. Un cuento que fue creciendo y creciendo hasta convertirse en uno de sus más grandes éxitos; haciendo a Neil Gaiman de nuevo ganador de buena parte de los premios que existen en el género fantástico (Hugo, Nébula, Bram Stoker,...). Coraline también se adaptó al comic -estupenda novela gráfica, por cierto, dibujada por P. Craig Russell-, tuvo una exitosa adaptación al cine que estuvo nominada a los Oscars de Hollywood, e incluso... ¡Un videojuego!
Una gran novela, sobre todo para todos aquellos que les guste lo fantástico. En mi opinión, 5 estrellas muy merecidas.

Coraline was the perfect heroine, and all of her reactions and actions were just what you'd expect from a precocious child. It was well established in the beginning that she was used to moving about on her own, with little supervision, so her ability to deal with the pretty scary things that happened to her was believable. That the author pulled character traits and settings from his own life made everything feel that much more real and natural in the storyline. There's no better way to write a "scary" story for young readers than this mixture of intense dread and optimistic hope.
Which brings to mind a problem I've been having lately with a lot of the books supposedly adored by critics. These books exhibit flaws critics normally criticize, and yet with books like CORALINE they turn a blind eye.
NOTE: What follows has some spoilers, so if you haven't read it, skip the rest.
Case in point: CORALINE has a double ending. Our heroine escapes from the "other house" and the story's over right? Wrong. She has to go back. Other problems? The setup takes too long and is boring. Coraline and all of the characters are thinly drawn and poorly defined. The only thing that stood out about Coraline was that she was brave. And how do I know that? Because she kept telling me so. Yes, she exhibited some bravery throughout the story, but critics traditionally hate telling and not showing, and there was a lot of telling in CORALINE. Also it is an incredibly violent and disturbing story, especially one designed for children. Sewing buttons over children's eyes? Come on, critics, where's your righteous anger? And why hasn't even one critic criticized the dialog? At best it's stilted and unrealistic. At worst it's just poorly written.
On the plus side--and my reason for giving it three stars and not less--Mr. Gaiman's writing can be beautiful, albeit overly simplistic in the case of CORALINE. Simplistic writing is something critics generally champion in children's literature, and CORALINE certainly doesn't disappoint in this regard, but having spent my career working with children in the middle-grade age range, I've learned they don't like childish writing and prefer not to be spoken down to.
Anyway, there you have it--my opinion, and it's worth every penny you paid for it. And for those who adore CORALINE, my apologies. I wish I had liked it more. But for me, there are much better books out there.
There are only minor differences between this graphic novel and the original novel, with some parts of the story being left out, possibly to make space. The story was quite enjoyable, but a little short and could be read in less than a few minutes - but I think it's best to give your eyes a few moments to take in all the details of the beautiful artwork! Much time and effort seems to have been put into sketches and detail, and it is quite easy to miss even the most obvious details if you attempt to take the book in all at once.
If you're the kind of person that prefers colors to blank pages, then this book is definitely for you!
Pro Tip: try playing the movie soundtrack as you read! It becomes quite endearing. :)
