Coraline: The Graphic Novel
But there's another mother there and another father, and they want...more
Part of it is how this is a very straight adaptation - I would have preferred it to have relied less on the boxes of text narrative, which seem to generally be taken straight from the book. The comic doesn't do anything other than what the book does, which I find disappointing in an adaptation. I'd...more
Well, I guess everyone will have the same impression as I did the first time I read the title - "Shouldn't it be Caroline? Must be some typo there." And that is the same response people gave her.
Young Coraline was not happy with her life despite the fact that she was only a kid. The adults around her acted a little weird sometimes, making her the more mature one in her mind and she felt bored about that. Her...more
Bukunya sendiri berkisah tentang seorang anak perempuan yang bernama Coraline yang baru pindah rumah dan harus menyesuaikan diri dengan lingkungannya. Coraline bukan Caroline, koreksi terhadap tetangganya yang selalu salah menyebutkan...more
Ah, the basic problem of being a kid: either your parents aren't interested enough or are too interested. This is one of the paradoxes of parenting. Finding a happy medium is nigh impossible.
The art for the graphic novel is good, but not mind-blowing. After having seen the movie, the art really threw me off. Nothing looked the same at all (not that t...more

Tapi ilustrasi dan cerita yang cukup, ga berlebihan merupakan gambaran fantasi yang ga norak.. mata kunci cukup ko membuat aq mendelik ;p klo ajah si ibu yang satunya lagi de...more
Kalimat yang paling memorable dari novel grafis yang saya baca siang ini. Fiuh, stress juga 2 kali dalam minggu ini baca novel grafis, keduanya memiliki sisi gelap dan lucunya kedua memiliki nilai yang kuat.
Saya nonton filmnya dulu sih, baru baca novelnya, dan keduanya memuaskan. Bikin meri...more
I didn't like it as much as the novel version, but I rarely like graphic novel version of books better. Oddly enough, it didn't feel as creepy as the novel illustrated by Dave Mckean. I chalk this up to the difference between shank and four hole buttons. Don't get me wrong - this is still a ten...more
The Other Mother is a better version of Coraline's real mother, with one key difference: she has buttons for eyes, and she wants to make Coraline just like her.
Coraline is one of my favorite children's books: it's one of the most deliciously sinister horror stories I've ever read, and there is zero gore. Gaiman is the master of dark fantasy, and this book deserves a place with the classics. Coraline becomes a true heroine as her courage and ingenuity are tested by her attempts to outwi...more
This is book is a graphic novel about a girl named Coraline who has just moved into a new home along with her parents. Just like every other child as soon as they moved in Coraline chose to explore the house and open every door. Coraline however never expected to find what she ended up finding. Behind a door in her house was another house just like the one she lived in, only a little bit better. There was a mother and a father there, they cooked great food and she had hundreds of toys...more
Coraline discovered the door a little after they moved into the house.

Acclaimed artist P. Craig Russell brings Neil Gaiman's enchanting, nationally bestselling children's book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously il...more

Critique: A. Format of text
B. This story was told through using text boxes inside pictures and dialogue bubbles throughout. I thought it was very interesting how the text in this story was displayed and it made it very easy to read be...more
The Graphic Novel is a very entertaining read that I had trouble putting down. I think Gaiman has a wonderful imaginati...more
