The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring....
In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one window and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close, The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.

Only it's different....

At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom. But there's another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.

    I rent audio books as I drive back home twice a month, and the trip is about 4-5 hours. If you need something to keep you awake during the trip, try this book. Albeit short (only 3 hours), it will keep you entertained. Don't be fooled to thinking that this is a children's book. It may very well be, but I think that only adults is made aware of the "dark" side of it. Kudos to the author and the narrator, Neil Gaiman, for this fantastically written (and well-read) book. His voice was not droning, you will NOT FALL ASLEEP. I believe that Neil is the only one who can read it as exquisitely as it was read. After all, it's his book.

    I was so excited to read this book because I love the movie .....and turns out I love the book too! The movie is closely related to the book and I very much enjoyed that the author did the audio. ????

    Very good! Gaiman provides an excellent narration, which not all authors do.
