Coraline

Coraline by Neil Gaiman (Bloomsbury, 2002); read by Neil Gaiman (Harper Audio, 2003) A dark modern fairy tale, dreamlike, eerie and grounded in odd little incidental details. Gaiman reads the audiobook himself, his delivery evoking a calm avuncular foreboding while (unsurprisingly) bringing out every nuance of the text. Sadly, this is a little too drawn-out.
