Описание

Helena is about to embark on a most amazing journey.

Raised in a family of circus performers, she’s always dreamed of leading a more ordinary life. But when haunting music draws her into a strange and magical realm, one where anything can happen, her real life is stolen by a runaway from the other side. Helena must rescue the realm from chaos in order to win back her own not-so-ordinary life.

MirrorMask is a breathtaking film written by bestselling author Neil Gaiman and brought to life through the vision of acclaimed artist and director Dave McKean. This original novella is Helena’s tale in her own voice, a stunning and magical journey.

    it's... fine. Nothing special, but perfectly acceptable in all ways. More a fantasy of a middle aged man who wants to think that the girl who's fighting with him isn't his real daughter than the fantasy of a pre-teen girl who wants to run away.

    Hmm. I didn't like the MirrorMask movie as much as I wanted to, but at least it was a spectacle, a whirl of colours and lights and fantastical landscapes. The book doesn't capture that as much as one would hope, and I didn't get particularly invested in it, either.

    I'm awfully fond of The Really Useful Book and the flying books and the idea of having to capture the book you want in a butterfly net, though.

    I was confused by all the dream symbolism.

    This is basically one long dream sequence. It had some nice imagery and cool characters, but ultimately it felt a lot like other dream-as-metaphor stories I've read: everything the girl does in the dream, no matter how bizarre, has some kind of impact on the real world. In short: decent but not my favorite Gaiman tale.

    Utterly fantastic just as the movie :)

    Helena is a 15 year old girl who hates her life in the circus. She tells her parents she just wants to run away and have a "real life". Unfortunately, Helena's mom then falls ill, and while she's in the hospital, Helena is thrown into a very strange dreamland: a strange, dark realm like a mirror of her own, but the dark side... Helena meets some strange characters while she seeks to find the key to saving her mom and returning to the other side.This was a quick and fun read. I'm almost wishing I'd opted for the longer screenplay version of this book, simply because the art work included here left me wishing I could see more, and the descriptions of some of the characters and places Helena encountered sounded really freaky!! But yay, shortly after I put it in my Netflix queue, I noticed it's on Starz this month anyway, so I set up TiVo to record it. :-)

    Disturbing and not high on my list of recommendations. A girl gets tossed out of her own world into the Mirror world where things are pretty ugly. The one positive is that it is a short audiobook which can be listened to in less than 2 hours.

    The story is fine but the movie is so visually stunning that it's probably not worth spending time on the book instead.

    Quick listen. Interesting telling of a dream. Not my favorite book of his but worth it for the hour.

    Helena comes from a circus family and when her mother (not long after they’ve fought) ends up in the hospital, Helena has odd dreams. This was just odd, I thought. Apparently a movie came first? This has illustrations throughout and it’s short. Since the bulk of the book was a dream, like many dreams it just went from odd happening to odd happening.

    MirrorMask is an Alice-in-Wonderland-style tale about a girl who works in her family circus and wishes to escape to real life. Instead, she dreams that she becomes part of the elaborate, nonsensical world she has drawn on her walls. There, she find that her life has been taken over by another, and her only way of escape is bared by beautiful and grotesque figures like floating giants, rainbow-winged sphinxes with human faces, and a selfish juggler named Valentine.In part, it’s a coming-of-age story, but sparkling or shadowed by the fantastical, twisted, and lovely incomprehensibility of a dark dream. It is also charming to adults and children alike because it is a picture book, in which the lines of words themselves grow or shrink, twist and entwine with the illustrations, or change colors from light to dark. Simple, unexpected – everything one who loves Neil Gaiman has come to appreciate about his work.

    A wonderfully imaginative novel by Neil Gaiman, whom I love. And the young female narrator, named Stephanie something, was simply smashing at her job narrating this novel. If you have any youngsters or Tweens that like this kind of novel, you should have them give it a listen/look. They will be as enchanted as I am by it. It's probably available at your local library's wilbor/bridges page. 4 stars!

    This reminded me a bit of Coraline, it was a little dark & creepy. Quick read and good overall.
