So, with how much I loved the movie, I can't believe that I hadn't read any form of the book yet. We saw this version at our comic book store and I thought it looked really neat so we picked it up. I don't mind collecting graphic novel versions of all of Gaimen's writings, that's for sure. It was definitely different from the movie in a few major ways, like Wybie isn't even in the book it seems, and there was no Coraline doll to spy on her. Also, a few details were shuffled around, like where the ghosts' eyes were hidden and what parts of the world were created for her. It was really good, though, of course, and I enjoyed it.
I think I might have enjoyed Nathan Fillion's intro more than the book, although I certainly enjoyed the book as well. I am excited to be rewatching the series with Jenny this summer.

Well, I didn't like this book just as much the second time around. I don't know, I just don't get into the plot line or the characters as a whole quite as much. I love Sam, though, and her paragraph about believing is still one of my favorites of all book passages, so I guess it's a wash.
