Fantasy fan? Don't miss more from Neil Gaiman.
©1999 Neil Gaiman; (P)2006 HarperCollins Publishers, Inc.
"Eminently readable, a charming piece of work." (Washington Post)
"An original and well-written fairy tale....This is a refreshingly creative story with appealing characters." (Library Journal)
"The resolution is satisfying and complex, proving that there is more to fairy tales than 'happily ever after'." (School Library Journal)
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.
This complicated plot was hard to follow because the reader was so difficult to understand.
He mumbles. He reads too fast.
It might be much better in print.
Buy the book; forget the audio version.
It was such a quirky and addictive story. Neil narrated perfectly - his voice is so easy to listen to.
Absolutely, a wonderful story, brilliantly narrated. It is the great fairy tale for adults
The story was wonderfully woven together and funny.
This was my first Gaiman performance and I loved it.
