Stardust

From multi award winning creator of The Sandman Neil Gaiman comes the incredible work that broke new ground in graphic novel storytelling re issued in a deluxe hardback edition with a new cover and eight additional pages of bonus material. 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

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 and I don t get what the fuss is all about I still haven t watched the movie but I feel like this could be one of those rare cases when the screen adaption is better than the originalThe only other Gaiman book that I ve read until today was Coraline the graphic novel I loved the haunting and dark atmosphere of it all But apart from that I m not motivated to pick up another one of his books anytime soonFind of my books on Instagram A Star To Steer Her By unrealistic and completely predictable For me this is one highly overrated novel and I don t get what the fuss is all about I still haven t watched the movie but I feel like this could be one of those rare cases when the screen adaption is better than the originalThe only other Gaiman book that I ve read double-doms-a-menage-baby-romance until today was Coraline the graphic novel I loved the haunting and dark atmosphere of it all But apart from that I m not motivated to pick bimbo-invasion-english-edition up another one of his books anytime soonFind of my books on Instagram

Neil Gaiman ☆ 6 Characters

Together with acclaimed artist Charles Vess Gaiman returns to the realm of Faerie for a lavishly illustrated tale of an ancient world where magic and humanity mingle in extraordinary ways Gaiman's exuisitely crafted text and Vess' breath. A friend gave me this book and I decided to read it before going to see the movie since I d heard so many rave reviews of the film If the movie hadn t been my carrot though I never would have made it through the first chapter let alone the entire story Let me say that I adore the fantasy genre check my book list so this is not outside my interest However in attempting to write a fairy tale for adults Gaimon completely missed the mark Apparently his idea of what makes a story for adults is generous sprinklings of gore violence and sex Considering that the rest of the story is written with child like simplicity these sections are jarring to say the least When I stumbled across the first somewhat graphic sex scene within a few dozen pages I literally stopped to double check what book I was reading Call me a prude but I don t think words like nipple and thrust really flow well in a fairy tale Also I defy any fantasy lover to not flinch in horror at Gaimon s brutal and gore spattered murder and subseuent dismemberment of the heroine s unicorn Pooling bodily fluids No thank youStill it s not so much the sex violence that disturbed me although if I liked that kind of thing I wouldn t be reading fantasy it was that they were included in a tale lauded for its childlike adventure and whimsy Even the description here on goodreads compares it to Princess Bride the Neverending Story an insult beyond comprehension to works which demonstrate that with skill an author can in fact write a fairy tale for adults without employing R rated tactics Lest you think I am allowing several instances of violence and sex to ruin my opinion of the entire work let me address the actual plot line and writing Gaimon can write obviously but the plot is riddled with fantasy travel cliches oh he slept in a hayloft How original and tiresome caricatures The hero is an unsympathetic clod the star is referred to almost exclusively as the star rendering her an inanimate object than a living being and the rare nuggets of interest such as the lightning pirates and the mysterious kingdom brotherhood are glossed over in a few paragraphs And for a book that does not flinch from sex where is the romance between the star hero We endure their pedantic bickering the entire book only to be rewarded with a passionless declaration of love betwixt them by the end The ending is predictable yet less than satisfying since the evil witch ueen escapes justice and ultimately the star faces a lonely immortality bereft of her love Not exactly the stuff happy endings are made ofUPDATE I finally saw the movie and let me say how grateful I am that it is NOTHING like the book Other than borrowing the majority of the plot character names the movie is night day different employing a vast amount of humor charm where the book was violent and grim I only wish my perspective had not been tainted by the book

    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 Ne

    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 t

    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
