Kenneth Geary I'm a fan of both Gaiman and Oot stories. Thanks for sharing.


message 3: by Anthony (new)

Anthony Eichenlaub Great review. Coraline read by Neil is probably my favorite audiobook of all time. I'm glad Oot liked it so much.

Sara Did you tell him?


message 5: by Rob (new)

Rob Wonderful Pat! Our kids are about the same age (my daughter is 5 and I tell her stories off the top of my head every night before bed) and I have a road trip coming up, possibly just the two of us. So audiobook here I come.

message 8: by Brandon (new)

Brandon This might be the best and most honest review you've written, which is saying something since all of your reviews smack of quality and honesty. (except the ones I disagree with, those are all filthy lies, of course)


message 9: by Heather (new)

Heather It shows how truly amazing Neil Gaiman is that he narrates just as well as he writes.


message 10: by Marjorie (new)

Marjorie Lovely! I do hope that you do tell Neil, I think he'd like it.

Solemn You know what would be a lot more interesting than this story?
Book 3 of the king killer chronicle


message 12: by M-e-i-l-y (new)

M-e-i-l-y I'm a fan of Oot!


message 13: by Don (new)

Don Runnion Solemn, Pat Rothfus is not your bitch, bitch.


message 14: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Campbell Hey Solemn, you know what's more interesting than harrying an author you supposedly like to finish their next book? Literally anything else.


message 15: by Brian (new)

Brian Bergstrom You can tell him I love Oot stories.

message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

What a wonderful manner in which to write a review... the tale of a child. Your review gave me a sense of recursion, like reaching into an inside-out sock to pull it rightside out. Well done.


message 41: by Kaylee (new)

Kaylee D The movie was great! I would have read the book first but I never knew there was a book. I saw it a Barnes and Noble but I had to get a Horror book for class and I didn't have enough money to buy it. I still think that even if I read the book the movie will be so much better. The movie is not even creepy, people say it's so scary, but it really isn't. This is one of my favorite movies.

message 50: by Abby (new)

Abby Idstein I can fully confirm the feeling of being terrified of this story, yet still being completely fascinated by it. My experience with Coraline started with the movie. When I was little, I was a passionate enthusiast of stop motion, or Tim Burton/Henry Selick-esque pieces of entertainment, so I was very excited to see Coraline in the theaters. The entire time I sat beside my mom in the dark, the movie unsettled me to the point where I had night terrors for a week after viewing it. And yet, I wanted nothing more than to watch it again. I loved it, even though it terrified me. Maybe it was the wonders and fantastic elements, the idea that an adventure—while frightening—awaits you inside your own home behind a secret door that captivated me. I bought the movie the day it came out. A few years later, I found out Coraline the movie was based on a book, so I ended up picking it up and reading it in one day. Despite experiencing Neil Gaimen’s world through a different type of media, I found myself equally transfixed and terrified through the use of haunting visuals in the book (in fact, I think the book had a much darker tone and color palette in my mind), especially through the other mother. To this day, many years later, Coraline is by far one of my favorite pieces of entertainment I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading/viewing. No story has ever stuck with me for so long.
