A review by oddduck
Coraline (Graphic Novel) by Neil Gaiman

adventurous dark tense medium-paced


I really enjoyed this graphic novel adaptation overall, as it was quite faithful to the novel and had wonderful art, but at times it felt like the text was telling something that could have been shown. Part of what makes the novel version so wonderful is of course the writing. There are so many lovely and creepy turns of phrase and the storytelling is very well crafted. This graphic novel at times relied too heavily on the text itself, rather than letting the art show us. Feels a bit weird to say, but I would have preferred fewer words in this version.
