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.
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.
