Caroline and the secret door

Book Review   by:pafi     Original Author: Neil Gaiman
ª
This abstract was translated from Coraline e a Porta Secreta
 

  The new Caroline Jones'' house it too big and since she''s a cleaver, it awakes the curiosity in her and she decides to have it all explored.
But in her new house, there are twenty one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen are opened but there''s one that''s always closed. She wonders what''s behind that closed door?
That''s the mysterious door that leads Caroline to a tumultuous adventure that takes her to an amazing and scary world.
She finally discovers a secret passage to a similar house as hers but she soon realizes that something strange is happenning there.
She can''t believe in her own eyes. Caroline assists to an unusual scenario. Amazed with all she''s seeing: flying angels, books which images are moving, dinossaurs'' skulls knocking their teeth when she passes through, as if they were scared of her, talking dogs and cats, animated toys and even her own parents open their arms towards her in this new Universe.
But how can her parents seem like toys since they have black buttons instead of eyes?

Why is it, that these new parents want to get the old ones prisoned in the corridor mirror?

What world is this? Where is Caroline?

Is it her dreaming or is it another  dimension different from real world?
A parallel world where fantasy, or is it real, leads her to her world of dreams with endless games. Where her new parents are the ideal parents for any teenager, but has Caroline everything she needs?
Why is all this happening to her?
What does this all mean?
Maybe she shouldn''t have opened that door, maybe there are doors that should never be opened...
What will Caroline have to do?
Will she ever come back to her real world, saving also her parents?
Fins out all these answers in a books that takes us to a fantasy world that gathers in an amazing way fiction and quality written that enthusiasm us to its reading.
