Project 50 Redux: January

I’m still working through “Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, which is an 800+ page monster, so I haven’t had time for much else.

"Coraline" by Neil Gaiman
I saw the movie before I read the book, and honestly…I liked the movie better. I felt like the book moved too fast without all the other extra things that the movie put in. As a book alone, it’s ok, but I didn’t get all that attached to Coraline even. C+

I totally agree about Coraline. I also read it after I saw the movie. But from what I've heard from people who try out Neil Gaiman's stuff, you either love it or hate it. I wonder if I liked the book more than I should have because I liked the movie so much. It makes me want to read another one of his books to find out. -Alyse
