Written by Stephen King, the king of horror and thriller books. According to Flavor Wire, if bookworms would like to keep a one book per author as their collection, IT is highly commendable. The book, as described, would scare the best of you. The murdering clown is also a must-see in this book.
Neil Gaiman wrote the book during 2002. Paste Magazine stated that Coraline was a deceptive piece of art. The book transcends through time due to the content's brilliance. The book covers a youth with his hyper-domestic parents. It was told that Coraline was the reincarnation of Alice, who went to the wonderland. She met a queen, named as Other Mother, who went with her in a mystical world, a dream Caroline has been wishing to go through. However, for her to continue the quest in her dream world, she needs to sew a button on her young eyes. It is superficial with a great dose of reality that Gaiman attached in the book.
Written by the great author, Ryu Murakami. The book would give a traumatic effect to all its readers. As they may say, after reading the book, you don't want to be close to anyone again.
The lead character of the book driven to do the right thing by getting a prostitute and taking all his issues out to the captured girl. It is horrific and one-of-a-kind, so you better get and start reading the book.
