The Written Review :
I was such a cowardly kid that I never managed to read more than the blurb on the back
Now that I’ve finally summoned the courage to give it a try – I wish I read it sooner.
I love this novel.
Unlike Gaiman’s fiction for adults, every sentence, every word has its purpose. And finally, Gaiman does not throw in some weird sex scene. Can I get a hallelujah?
One especially dull and rainy day traps young Coraline inside the new house. Her parents are busy and she must entertain herself. She finds a little door in the drawing room and a little key that fits in.
he discovers a passageway into the otherworld. In it are her other-mother and her other-father – both of which always have the time for her and adore making her favorite foods. But, there’s something… too otherly about the two that raises her hackles.
Finally, the other-mother plays her hand. She wants Coraline all to herself. With a growing sense of dread, Coraline finds the way back locked and her chances of escaping becoming ever slimmer…All the while, the other-mother promises how wonderful and lovely living with her will be…forever…
I don’t want whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted just like that, and it didn’t mean anything? What then?
Coraline herself is brave and kind and courageous. At her age, I certainly couldn’t have done half the things she managed. I love her strength and how there isn’t a stich of love-interest – only adventure and escapades.
Much better than expected (and I didn’t get any nightmares).
Read by the author – woohoo! As much as I grumble about some of his books, there’s no denying that he’s absolutely fabulous to listen to – this man could read a grocery list and I’d give it a listen.

Well for the “villain” of this story that is clearly not the case. It’s easy to pinpoint Coraline’s bravery and talk about her experience, but that’s not what this review is about. I want to consider the “other mother” and her story.
I mean what exactly is her story? We can only presume that she has been doing this kind of trickery for years, perhaps even centuries. We don’t really know a great deal about her. She has three victims prior to her attempts on Coraline. Two appear to be fairly normal children. The third speaks in a form of Shakespearean English, which I took for proof of a victim many years previous. We don’t know a great deal about the actual house either or how long it has actually been standing. The descriptions speak of age. But how much age are we talking?
It’s all a little bit of a mystery. What drove this woman to such depravity? What happened in her life that she needed to feed upon the love of children? What has she lost? Where did it all begin? I can only speculate. But one thing remains an absolute certainty to my mind; something terrible happened to the “other mother” a long time ago, something awful that drove her into the deepest depths of despair and as a result she clings to the essence of life: love.
The movie adaption gives some brief idea of where she came from; she is Wyborn’s Grandma’s sister. But I’m not sure how much of this we can actually consider. Although the movie was written in collaboration with Gaiman neither of the characters actually appear in the book. So I’m left with even more speculation.
What do you think?
Is the “other mother” a villain or is she simply a misunderstood victim of fate?
Postscript- I wish I had a friend like Coraline whilst growing up. She’s one cool kid.
