REVIEW ñ MUCID.ME Ö Neil Gaiman

Stardust

ณ ดินแดนชนบทอันซึมเซาของประเทศอังกฤษ ในยุคต้นของสมัยวิคทอเรีย ชีวิตในเมืองเล็กที่ชื่อว่า ‘วอลล์’ นั้นดำเนินไปอย่างเรื่อยเปื่อย หนุ่มน้อยนาม ทรสตรัน ธอร์น ได้มอบหัวใจให้กับ วิคทอเ Dear Mr GaimanDamn you Damn you straight to hell You ve written beautiful faerie stories in your plainspoken postmodern prose and left my own projected frontiers woefully trodden It has nothing to do with your brilliance Had I been born before you I would most likely be the one writing clever novels about fallen stars and sly gods I would ve I swearBut instead I was born forty years too late and your Faerie Neil do you mind if I call you Neil Your Faerie like all of your creations is a perfectly plausible reality praised by literary critics the literate s dollar and even the behemoth Movie Adaptation Your prose is simple if you ll pardon my saying so not elevated with exotic adjectives but simple and modern easily accessible solid uality prose This reflects nothing upon you of course your authorship is the perfect marriage of your own writing talent and our modern culture Shakespeare s work seems ridiculously complicated to us now but he wrote for the masses just like you Our masses do not value rhetorics metre or internal rhyme or I m sure you d write with such tools No Neil you write with one very powerful tool distilled imagination Escapism unreality creativity novelty and all their side effects When the surrounding world seems unbearable the ever growing fetus of imagination is hope In slavery in misery in poverty in isolation a person can escape into the brighter day of dreams or the unknown future or the magic of FaerieAnd in a world where the demons in the closet are thrust into a florescent laboratory where telescopes and cameras record the crags and terrain of places where once there were dragons where we identify which crannies of the human mind are responsible for fear or love or sorrow and even plot out their corresponding hormonal compositions for manipulation and control perhaps in such a world we must desperately escape into the unexplorable reaches of Faerie The rules are simple there Help anyone in need and graciously accept their payment Stick with unerringly polite manners but never let down your guard You need a sharp wit to go with a good heart Never eat faerie foodPopular vote does not elect poor leaders in Faerie Weapons are easily recognizable not hidden in letters or water bottles Death stands tall with his scythe and cowl instead of creeping behind health care bills and drug overdoses and when he does come death was either justified or will be avenged Villages in Faerie are rarely overrun with revolutionaries toting machine guns or skeletal toddlers with distended bellies The old do not die alone there Despite enchanted princes and disguised witches Faerie makes sense than our world and if it doesn t it s alright It s Faerie So we escape into your novels Neil and into the worlds of Harry Potter and Lyra Silvertongue and we love you for it or in my case hate you We are too jaded to suspend disbelief yet we ache for magic We won t creep into a darkened room for the show but demand that you blossom crystal snowdrops here in Times Suare your right hand outstretched for our inspection while your left clutches a Starbucks cup We cannot leave our world for Faerie any so you bring it to us in pleasurable words easily explainable hidden just beyond an English countryside wall or under our feet or in corners we don t examine too closelyPlease keep it up SincerelyLH

Neil Gaiman Ö 1 CHARACTERS

รีย ฟอเรสเตอร์ ผู้แสนงาม แต่วิคทอเรียช่างเย็นชาและห่างเหินพอๆ กับดวงดาวซึ่งเธอและทริสตรันเห็นมันร่วงหล่นจากฟากฟ้าในคืนหนึ่ง และเพื่อให้วิคทอเรียรับรักและยอมแต่งงานด้วย ทริสตรั The Gaiman I read the I understand why people are so caught up in the magic he wields Because that is basically what he does He s not an author he s a magician painting magic pictures of rich exciting worlds that come to life so uickly Worlds that somehow seem complexly developed after just two chapters of Gaiman s writing Gaiman is simply a master storyteller He creates moods that permeate entire novels and whether you happen to be reading his adult or young adult works he makes you feel like a child wandering through a wardrobe into a world of possibility or perhaps slipping through the invisible barrier of platform 9 34 and discovering the world is than you could ever have imagined What Gaiman does with his magic is build timeless fairytales that speak to people of all agesStardust is just one example of Gaiman s creativity It is nothing like the hauntingly nostalgic The Ocean at the End of the Lane or the eerily fantastical subterranean London of Neverwhere or the ghostly coming of age story in The Graveyard Book but it has the stamp of Gaiman all over it His style is present from the very first chapter when a young man falls madly in lust with a Faerie girl and his passion results in the birth of Tristran Thorn The tale only gets wilder exciting and adventurous from there A grown Tristran attempts to win the hand of his love by crossing the wall into the land of Faerie to retrieve a fallen star But as these things go it doesn t turn out to be a simple task and if Tristran even makes it back alive he is certain to be a very different man to the one who leftHowever as myself and others have done it is very easy to feel the need to compare Gaiman s books to popular children s classics I started the first paragraph by doing so but Stardust is not a children s book At a stretch it could be called a young adult book but I m tempted to play on the safe side and call it adult There s a sex scene in chapter one that is uite graphic Not fifty shades of faerie but still uite graphic Plus there s some violence and gore that may put you off if you are looking for a light fluffy fantasy read In fact I ve read a bunch of GR reviews where the reader hated it because they d read the blurb comparing it to The Princess Bride and The Neverending Story and seemed struck down in horror by the sex and violence So I m warning youThe only thing I can say about Gaiman is that I m becoming a crazy fangirl and he needs to write things and faster because soon I will have caught up with everything he s written If you haven t yet take a chance on him

    “You have to believe Otherwise it will never happen”My first Neil Gaiman book was a disappointment I didn't like this very much It wasn't a bad book exactly but it was also far from being a good one The characters didn't have much depth the plot was unrealistic and completely predictable For me this is one highly overrated novel

    35 stars Neil Gaiman and I have a love hate relationship and I hope that bothers him as much as it bothers me He's a gifted writer and I keep thinking that I ought to love everything he writes but so far his books have struck me either as • so bizarre and off putting that I couldn't get into it American Gods• hauntingly beautiful but kind of confusing The Ocean at the End of the Lane or• having a marvelous setting but bei
