Stardust doc ¾ 248 pages Download ☆ Neil Gaiman µ Life moves at a leisurely pace in the tiny town of Wall—named after the imposing stone barrier which separates the town from a grassy meadow Here young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand TristranOung Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand Tristran vows to retrieve a fallen The world building the characters the story all absolutely amazing He wondered how it could have taken him so long to realize he cared for her and he told her so and she called him an idiot and he declared that it was the finest thing that ever a man had been called There's the wonder there's the intrigue there's the titch of magic interspersed with ethereal Neil Gaiman has finally caught me on a storyWe have Tristian a product of his father's wandering gaze and a fairy lass who in a fit of youthful passion makes an improbable promise the hottest girl in the village Victoria apple of his eye demands for Tristan crosses the boundary between our world and theirs in search of a fallen star And thus begins his harrowing journey through the gap in the Wall and into the land of fairy to find an unwitting and unwilling starThis story read like an ancient tale handed down from generation to generation The only thing that threw me out of it was the weird sex Gaiman always always strong arms some sex into the books and while it did further the plot I think that the events would've played out exactly the same without the naked bits thrown in to titillate the audienceThat being said the rest of the book was magnificent Very rarely someone comes to Wall knowing what they are looking for and these people they will sometimes allow through There is a look in the eyes and once seen it cannot be mistaken This is the kind of book that makes you wonderwhat if? And hope for the less likely answerI would highly recommend the fully illustrated edition of this book Stardust Being a Romance within the Realms of Faerie there's something about having pictures on nearly every page that brings this book to the next level Audiobook CommentsI read and listened to this novel The audiobook narrator Neil Gaiman himself did an excellent jobthough if push came to shove I'd pick the illustrated edition For the record the movie betterYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

Life moves at a leisurely pace in the tiny town of Wall named after the imposing stone barrier which separates the town from a grassy meadow Here y Inevitably I was reading this against the movie and I'm here to say that I think the movie and the book are both brilliant So haI love the movie It's absolutely wonderful And I loved the book But they are uite different The novel definitely feels adult Not because it has adult themes just in the overall tone and language The movie is definitely family friendly The movie is wittier and funnier and sillier and faster paced and the book is slower and whimsical and felt grounded in reality even though it's surrounded in magic

Neil Gaiman ☆ Stardust kindle

StardustStar and deliver it to his beloved It is an oath that sends him over the ancient wall and into a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagini This is the one case the ONLY case so far Edit not any Bridget Jones gets the honor too where I prefer the movie to the book I know it's a sacrilege and you can all burn me at the stake but it is nonetheless the truth It's also one of the few times I watched the movie before reading the book simply because I had no idea the book existed And I loved the movie I mean really really loved it So of course when I discovered it was based on a book I rushed to get it Now please don't get me wrong it's a good book It's a very very good book and I love how Neil Gaiman tried and succeeding at creating a dark fairytale Because it is very much a fairytale except it's probably not so much for kids as it is for adults It shows us that fairytales aren't all glitter and roses and good vs evil with happy endings for all the good guys It's a realistic fairytale That seems like such a contradiction and few other people than Neil Gaiman could make it work so thank god he's the one who wrote it The problem is that having watched the movie I wanted a fairytale All the things I loved the best about the movie weren't in the book and it's usually the other way around I was surprised too I mean no Captain Shakespeare? No happy stars in the sky ending? The movie was such a feel good one and the book? Not so much Had I done it in the proper order book then movie I'm absolutely certain I would have felt differently about it but that's not how it is Both book and movie are amazing in their own right and perhaps I shouldn't even compare them but ah too late Still this is a great book and I really enjoyed it So don't rid yourself of the chance to get to know some fantastic characters and go on a proper fairytale adventure with no risk of sugar exposure
