Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Despite being mostly known for his fantastical graphic novels and adult fiction, Neil Gaiman's first book for children is everything that you would expect from such a massive imagination as his. It's special and wonderful and very weird indeed. Described by some as the new Alice in Wonderland, Coraline is actually more bizarre than that, much more frightening and its modest length definitely adds to the book's undiluted potency.

Shortly after moving into an old house with strange tenants above and below, Coraline discovers a big, carved, brown wooden door at the far corner of the drawing room. And it is locked. Curiosity runs riot in Coraline's mind and she unlocks the door to see what lies behind it. Disappointingly, it opens onto a brick wall. Days later, after exploring the rest of the house and garden, Coraline returns to the same mysterious door and opens it again. This time, however, there is a dark hallway in front of her. Stepping inside, the place beyond has an eerie familiarity about it. The carpet and wallpaper are the same as in her flat. The picture hanging on the wall is the same. Almost. Strangest of all, her mum and dad are there too. Only they have buttons for eyes and seem more possessive than normal. It's a twisted version of her world that is familiar, and yet sinister. And matters get even more surreal for Coraline when her "other" parents seem reluctant to let her leave.

Her attempted escape from this nightmare alternative reality sees Coraline experience a chilling series of ever more bizarre encounters. Some are plainly odd, others disturbingly spooky and together they combine to form an immensely readable story. It's like all the best bits of the Goosebumps books condensed into 160 pages. A unique reading experience guaranteed. (Ages 10 and over)--John McLay -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Es ist so eine Sache mit Autoren, die eine Hochphase durchmachen - irgendwann kommt dann leider, unvermeidbar, das schwächere Buch, die Enttäuschung, der Flop. Bei Gaiman ist davon, sehr zur Freude der Freunde der dunklen Phantastik, derzeit kein Anzeichen zu merken.
Vielleicht liegt es auch an seinem konsequenten Genre-Hopping: nach Comics, Kurzgeschichten, einigen Kurzromanen, einem großen Roman wendet er sich nun (nicht zum erstenmal in seiner Karriere) dem Kinderbuch zu. Allerdings ist es ein Kinderbuch im Gaiman-Stil, mit Ecken, Kanten und dunklen Ideen. Vielen dunklen Ideen.
Der Begriff Kinderbuch greift hier natürlich zu kurz. Es ist eines dieser raren Exemplare, das von Kindern und Erwachsenen gleichermaßen gelesen, verstanden und genossen werden kann. Wenn auch wahrscheinlich aus verschiedenen Gründen. Erwachsene können über das komplizierte Verhältnis zwischen Realität und Fiktion, zwischen Wunsch und Wirklichkeit nachdenken - Kinder werden eher gespannt dem Ausgang von Coralines Reise zwischen den Welten entgegenbannen. Diese unterschiedliche Art, auf die Geschichte zu reagieren, resultiert in der ironischen Tatsache, dass Kinder mit den verstörenden Elementen in diesem Buch leichter umgehen werden können als Erwachsene.
Auch sprachlich zeigt Gaiman hier wieder seine Meisterschaft. Das Buch ist in einer klaren, knappen Spreche geschrieben, die es Kindern erlaubt, der Story zu folgen und Erwachsene staunen macht, wie es möglich ist, soviel Subtext in so wenig Text zu verpacken.
Die meisterhaften Illustrationen von Dave McKean runden dieses wunderbare, eigenartige Buch perfekt ab.

Format: Bibliothekseinband
To call the latest poetic work of Neil Gaiman a piece of Fantasy would be an underestimation. It is more than fantasy, it is magic in the truest form, the magic of the word, and the magic of story-telling. Magic is not some weird hoax. It follows the rules the same like our mother Nature does, and in that it is natural in itself. Magic is the application of inherent imagination on a definable and comprehensible and explicable reality. In that, magic is the most important tool of a story-teller, it is a key to open the chest of our own imagination and find the treasure therein. And the keys that Gaiman uses have the power to unlock even the most stubborn lock.
It is the eyes of a young girl that tell the story, and yet it is the somewhat distorting point of view of the narrator that turns our perception upside down. Thus, the story becomes a piece of the fantastic, not of fantasy. The reader follows the plot with a feeling of disturbing fright, for the loss of reality leaves only horror.
True, it may seem a very macabre sort of imagination that Gaiman evolves in "Coraline", and we may wonder if a little girl could really imagine a world so dark, so frightening and disturbing. But what remains is the intense magic of a story-teller who can turn little buttons into the most horrible eyes you have ever encountered.
If this really is a children's book, and if it is to compete with Lewis Caroll, I am not the judge off. But I can tell you, dear reader, this is a piece of imagination like no other. It is better than Sandman in that it does not dwell on violence, hatred or brutality. It is better than Neverwhere, for it has a finale that will leave goosepimples on your arms, neck, back. It is better than American Gods because it takes on a rather simple way of story-telling. And in this simplicity lies the secret: Gaiman has found - like many others before him - the most simple ways into the most complex of humanity's treasures.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Coraline", is from author Neil Gaiman who is very well known for some remarkable, thought-provoking and original fiction. This book is a departure for him, as it is ostensibly written for children who the author explains, read what adults would consider a tale of horror, as an adventure. Children can supply the answer, but this book will keep many up at night, or will invade and transform a dream in to a nightmare regardless of age.
In the event your imagination needs help, illustrator Dave McKean provides black and white images that will make you wince in the brightest light of day. I almost always find black and white imagery more powerful than color, and here once again, color would have detracted from these illustrations. Black and white focuses the images, color can sometimes confuse and distract, or perhaps dilute the message. The illustration facing the text on page 149 easily gains my vote for the creepiest image in the collection. If you have seen images drawn by Tim Burton for some of his films, which will give you an idea of what you will see.
Comparisons have been made to, "Alice In Wonderland", and while you will see it is a comparison that is easy to make, it does a disservice to both writers. A shared element does not automatically mean a comparison is valid or called for, and it can prejudice the reader before the book is opened.
The 162 pages took 10 years to create, and the author states it was both the most difficult book he has written, and the book he is most proud of. I think the audience for the book is as legitimate for adults as for children, and could spark some great conversation between generations, something a great book can do. The book also carries messages for both kids and parents alike, so the book is more than just entertainment.
Buttons for eyes, cat assassins, souls, marbles, mist and mirrors, rats who chant, and mice that jam. It's all here, and it will either keep you up, or keep the lights on while you doze.
