The change from the normal fairy tale prince and princesses
Being the author I fell Neil Gaiman understands the characters better than many readers and brings them to life making it feel as though you are watching a play rather than listening to a book.
Laughed out loud a lot. I love the quirky characters and the way the story plays out. Especially love the ending.
Stardust is a fairy tail for adults. It is brilliant: entertaining, surprising, humorous, fanciful and true. Don't miss this star!
This is a beautiful fairy tale by Neil Gaiman. Yes, it's a little racy in the beginning, but coming of age isn't always a chaste subject. And neither is understanding the difference between what you think you want and what you actually need. Gaiman explores these themes beautifully through a tale of high adventure and romance infused with plenty of magic.
Read by the author and done beautifully. I enjoyed being read a story by the storyteller himself.
The story it's self is fun and worth a listen.
Great book. Creative ideas and well written. Neil Gaiman does a good job of choosing his words and a good job of reading his book. I quite enjoyed it.
Great reading of the story. Gain an really brings it to life.
The story itself is just ok. It's pretty predictable. Also there are too many characters to follow, and those like Primus I didn't care for all that much. I remember the ship captain being funnier in the movie.
Overall whimsical and occasionally funny, but underwhelming.
I love the story of Stardust, having read it several times, but did not expect to be overwhelmed by the excellence of Mr. Gaiman's narration of his tale. I have been impressed by several narrators, and disappointed by a few, but never have I been so captivated by the voices, the rhythm, the delivery that I experienced with this audio book. I recommend it highly--it was a joy to listen to. I enjoy the story of Stardust as written as well as the movie adaptation. Mr. Gaiman's hand was at work in the movie's production as well. I thank him for giving of his talent to read his work to us.
The witch's cackle.
Yes, but it was good to spread it out--savour the tale.
