Stardust | Neil Gaiman
Young Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria—even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that old stone wall, Tristran learns, lies Faerie—where nothing, not even a fallen star, is what he imagined. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a remarkable quest into the dark and miraculous—in pursuit of love and the utterly impossible.

Second project of the weekend is complete, & boyfriend is working on cutting back the ivy that‘s threatening to take over our entire yard. Our veggie garden has 2 types of tomatoes, orange bell peppers, rhubarb, & a blueberry bush (for now), the indoor/outdoor herb garden is peppermint, German thyme, rosemary, and sage, and of course we needed a catnip plant for the babes. Now to relax and work on my swap packages🤣 #gardenersoflitsy #audiogarden

A nice fairytale but not Gaiman's best work.

Melissa_J This is one of the very few instances where the movie is better than the book. 2w

Sweetkokoro Ahh I loved Stardust, but I‘m still exploring the world of Gaiman so for me it‘s a good book by him. I have seen lots say the movie is better and I have to say, while its good, I don‘t feel it‘s better than the book. It‘s enjoyable, but I prefer the book haha. 2w

I love this movie and have been meaning to read the book since I found out about it. I loved the story as much as the movie. I now can see how much they changed the book in the movie but I think both are still really great.

This edition is awesome with its illustrations!

I think I may have tried a bit too hard to like this 😶 I adored his book on Norse Mythology, but I think I‘m just not the target audience for this 😪 I‘m not a huge fantasy reader and books set in faerie never really work for me. Nonetheless, the story and his descriptions were VERY creative and I see how others would love it. It just wasn‘t for me. I think I‘ll try out ‘Good Omens‘ next and see if I have more luck with that one. 😐

madamereadsalot1 I totally see how it isn't everyone's flavor. Especially if the fairy/high fantasy thing isn't a preferred genre. I hope you like Good Omens! That's one of my favorite Gaiman books! So funny. 1mo
Ingerella I think the same about Gaimen. I did love Ocean at the End of the Lane though. 1mo
Eggbeater Probably has my two favorite villains. If you listen to the audio, he narrates it himself and does a great job. 1mo

”They sat side by side on a thick, white cumulus #cloud the size of a small town. The cloud was soft beneath them, and a little cold. It became colder the deeper into it one sank, and Tristran pushed his burned hand as far as he could down into the fabric of it: it resisted him slightly, but accepted his hand. The interior of the cloud felt spongy and chilly, real and insubstantial at once.”

The 4 yr old is a bear in the mornings. He typically requests silence on the way to school, that means no music or radio. He'll talk, but prefers the radio off. Today I asked if he wanted to listen to a book instead. YES! I turned on Neil Gaiman's Stardust (he's a big Coraline fan) that I've been listening to. Today he giggled on the way to school bc we met Charming in Faerie. #Gaimanforthewin #RaisingReaders

In the city of Wall, there is an ancient wall. But this isn‘t any regular, old wall. No, it is a #WonderWall, which acts as a boundary between the regular world, and a more magical and mysterious world. A world Tristan Thorne has to make his way through to find a fallen star to give to his sweet heart. 💫

While the audio was fantastic and you can find it in novel form, the best way to experience Stardust is its original version, with the text fully illustrated by Charles Vess.

If you are reading it for the first time especially, this is really the only way to go.

When young Tristran Thorn promises Victoria Forester that he will fetch a fallen star for her, he has no idea that his quest will lead him into the clutches of witches, onto the back of a unicorn, seeking the help of a chatty tree, or that the star will have no desire to return with him.

This occasionally grisly, often funny, always lovely fairy tale is Gaiman at his very best and was a joy to revisit on audio.
