Coraline (graphic novel adaptation)
Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell
1 out of 5
I thought that this graphic novel did a poor job of conveying the thoughts and feelings of the main character, Coraline. She never seemed to be passionate about anything. I also thought that she was very unrealistic. When she opens a door and finds that the brick wall that is usually there has vanished and in its place is a long, dark hallway, she decides the best thing to do is to walk down it. I think a real person would have been much more cautious. Then, when she finds two people with black buttons instead of eyes who claim they’re her “other parents”, she seems completely unfazed. Coraline seems like a person who would never exist.
