Coraline (Gaiman)

I once had a student recommend a Neil Gaiman book to me (American Gods), but its size intimidated me a bit. Then I admired his response to a politician’s comment about his neck.

I decided to start slowly with Coraline. What a delightfully well-constructed and genuinely scary story. His writing is vivid, his characterizations and plot artful.

Can’t wait to see what Tim Burton has done with it.

I’m not sure I’m ready to dig into American Gods yet, but I’ll get there.
