This is a book which will survive multiple re-readings and offer up something new each time. Very much enjoyed.
PS: Tori the tree was most welcome.
I'm sure others will love the book, but I couldn't bring myself to continue. I'll stick to the movie. That's always going to be one of my favourites.
i can simply say that the book moves at an agreeable pace, and has a rich story line with many wonderful and imaginative ideas. Bliss in that respect.
For those, like myself, who have seen the movie the book deviates from the screenplay just enough to have kept me reading through pleasant hours.
Stardust is well worth a read
And for those who have yet to see the movie ~ do yourself a favour and watch it

Brilliantly written and a nice wee twist 😉
I don’t know how to express what I’m feeling now that I’ve finished Stardust.
The writing style is very fanciful, I honestly don’t know how else to explain it. Sometimes the descriptions were so incredible I stopped to read them a few times, but that style carried over into every aspect of the book and in some cases it felt like it took too long for the author to get through a very short scene.
Despite the fact that it felt drawn out I wanted to keep reading. I’m completely torn because I kind of loved it but I also kind of didn’t.
I much prefer the emotion in the film and as much as i liked the book it is painfully emotionless.
The star and Tristran just seem to suddenly decide to be together, you just have to imagine that they built up a relationship with no help from the author. Whereas the film uses their time on the air ship to bring the characters together.
And although i do like the peaceful ending with the 'evil' witch, it did seem a little rushed and unsatisfying. And again, a huge lack of emotion. A total disregard for his newly discovered mother and his father left behind the wall.
Rarely do I ever say a film is better than its novel, but in this case it's simple true. I loved the magic in the film. So much that i named my son Trystan. Anyway, book or film, this is a story that has touched my heart and the most enjoyable fairytale ive discovered :) x
There were things that bothered me, and the main reason I gave 4 stars and not 5, the book isn't all that long, I felt like the characters had more to tell, but then, my imagination is still thinking about them 2 days on, so maybe that's the intention, who knows. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would definitely recommend it to any, particularly those that enjoy fantasy.
