I have continued to struggle to concentrate on too much reading wise at the moment so my partner suggested the graphic novel Coraline by Neil Gaiman. I'm still pretty new to the world of graphic novels but I have to say I really loved this story and this style.
Coraline is a girl who has just moved into a new house with her parents - a house that offers plenty in the world of exploration and discovery - so exploring Coraline does! She discovers another world within the house containing in some ways mirror images of her real life - including another set of parents that turn out to be far more than what they first seem to be.
I asked my partner before I started reading this one if it was scary - he assured me that it wasn't but after finishing it I realised that everyone has very different ideas of what is scary for them! I did find aspects of this story scary and disturbing I have to say! I was really caught up in Coraline's worlds and I was hoping that she would come out of her experiences ok.
I have read some of Gaiman's work before and even though this genre is not the sort of thing I would normally read I love all of his work that I have read - it is imaginative, fun and thought provoking. Coraline in the graphic novel format was the perfect read for me at the moment.
