📖 Coraline by Neil Gaiman
“Be wise. Be brave. Be tricky.”
Coraline, if you haven’t seen or read it, is the story of a young girl who is thrown into a world eerily similar to her own, with an other father and an other mother. The other mother loves Coraline and will do everything in her power to never let go.
Coraline must use her courage and her wits to outsmart the other mother and save not only herself, but three ghosts and her parents.
The first time I read this book was when I was 12 and I got it from an independent bookstore. At the time I would have bought anything with illustrations by Dave McKean. I had no idea who Neil Gaiman was yet.
Coraline was one of the first books to genuinely scare me. And I loved every suspenseful moment of it. To read a book as macabre as this, AND have it written for young readers was amazing. It was like Neil Gaiman spoke to me, a pre-teen, with respect and understanding. His words MEANT SOMETHING. And I was proud to listen.
Being able to reread Coraline is fantastic and I’d like to do it again, maybe sooner than 11 years this time around. It brought me back to who I was as a child and reminded me of who I want to become.
“Because,” she said, “when you’re scared but you still do it anyway, that’s brave.”

Nothing is harder to understand than a symbolic work. A symbol always transcends the one who makes use of it and makes him say in reality more than he is aware of expressing.
