Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Neil Gaiman

Narrated By: Neil Gaiman

Publisher: HarperCollins

Date: November 2003

Duration: 3 hours 38 minutes


In Coraline's family's new flat there's a locked door. On the other side is a brick wall—until Coraline unlocks the door . . . and finds a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.

Only different.

The food is better there. Books have pictures that writhe and crawl and shimmer. And there's another mother and father there who want Coraline to be their little girl. They want to change her and keep her with them. . . . Forever.

Coraline is an extraordinary fairy tale/nightmare from the uniquely skewed imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman.

    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. ????

    Neil Gaiman both wrote and narrated this story beautifully. I'll listen to it again soon, I'm sure.

    I love the story and love the narration. This is such a marvelous book, it is great for keeping awake on road trips. I listen to it at least 2-3 times a year.

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

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Neil Gaiman is not only a fantastic writer, he reads a book like no other. I listened to it a second time with one of my kids and enjoyed it just as much.

    Easily my favorite Neil Gaiman. Dark but not horror, simple and direct without being dumbed down. Voiceover was done very nicely and was clear and easy to hear in the car. A great bedtime story for the little girl in all of us.
