Eclectic reader but mostly read anything seafaring, Tolkien and American history, even Pride and Prejudice and romance stories.
Sorry, but I didn't really care for the author reading his story. To me, he didn't bring enough flavor to the characters but did a pretty good job otherwise. His narration just fell flat.
Print or the audio book, the ending definitely. I wish the movie kept more of the book's flavor instead of radically changing it up.

I never get tired of this story. So much imagine, heartwarming characters, and superb narration by the author himself. I only wish there were more stories like this and more storytellers like Mr. Gaiman.
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
A wonderful fairy tale until the authors interview I thought was written in the 1990's. I was very impressed with the authors story telling style way was reminded of Chaucer or T White. Great story classic fairy tale style, and enough plot for an adult.
I've been a fan of Neils' writing since my 1st encounter. I love that he reads his own books on Audible. American God's & Anasi Brothers both used different performers for effect & is beautifully done. I've not been disappointed with any of his books. This book, for those thinking of buying, is probably 70% different than the movie!
I feel legitimately angry simply because the world created is amazingly rich, the writing is incredibly well done, and now I've finished listening to the audio book. i simply didn't want it to be over because it was so darn good.
also, you want this version of the audio book. perk of having the author narrate is hearing his interpretation of the rhythm of the dialog. trust me, it's phenomenal (annoyingly so).
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.
