    Die Brautprinzessin von William Goldman (norabelle414, Morteana)
    norabelle414: Both are hilarious, imaginative fairy tales.

  3. 121
    The girl who. Band 01. Die wundersame Geschichte von September, die sich ein Schiff baute und das Feenland umsegelte von Catherynne M. Valente (aarti, Jannes)
    Jannes: Gaiman might be inspired by Dunsany and Mirrlees while Valente leans slightly more toward Carroll and Baum, but both of them are modern authors tackling the classic fairytale, both are great stylists, and both books are highly enjoyable.
  4. 101
    Die Königstochter aus Elfenland von Lord Dunsany (ghilbrae, Haltiamieli, wisemetis)
    Haltiamieli: "Perhaps this book should come with a warning: it is not a reassuring, by-the-numbers fantasy novel, like most of the books with elves, princes, trolls, and unicorns 'between their covers.' This is the real thing." – Neil Gaiman
  5. 81
    Flucht ins Feenland. von Hope Mirrlees (twilightnocturne, moonstormer, isabelx)

  9. 104
    Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell von Susanna Clarke (GreenVelvet, GreenVelvet, GreenVelvet)
    GreenVelvet: Both Stardust and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell are detailed, well-written and riveting explorations of the world of fairie.

    Sparrowdance von Anne Lewis (TeaWren)
    TeaWren: Quite different really, but along similar general lines. There's a quest, and fairy tales aren't quite what they seem, and it's funny and sad and rather clever.

Dunstan Thorn is a young man from Wall, England. He goes through the wall (between worlds) to a faerie market that comes to the border every 9 years. He ends up getting a slave woman pregnant and 9 months later, a now married Dunstan is left with his new baby, found at the gap in the wall.

Fast-forward to a young adult Tristran Thorn (Dunstan’s son) who doesn’t seem to fit in his their town of Wall. He is willing to do anything to win the love of the town beauty, Victoria. He claims he will find a fallen star (one they see in the sky one evening) for her and sets off through the wall to find it (none from the town of Wall, besides Tristran’s father ever go across the wall). There are two other groups searching for the fallen star as well.

A group of three witch sisters are searching for the star to cut out its heart to gain eternal youth and beauty. The remaining three sons of the Lord of Stormhold are also searching for it as their father’s necklace is what knocked her out of the sky and she now has the necklace. Whichever brother brings it back will be named the next king. Tristran finds the fallen star, a young woman named Yvaine and the adventures of all three groups intertwine as they try to reach their goals.

Once returning to Wall, Tristran tells Victoria he has found the fallen star but Victoria wants to marry Mr. Monday. Tristran returns to faerie and kisses Yvaine and fulfills a prophecy that sets the slave woman free. The slave woman, also Tristran’s mother, ends up being the only daughter of the Lord of Stormhold, making Tristran an heir. Tristran who has the fallen star and the necklace ends up ruling Stormhold.

Although it is an adult novel, I would recommend this book to adults and young adults alike. It can appeal to a variety of readers because it holds a variety of aspects and genres in its plotline. The mystery of the land beyond the wall and the adventures of the people who live there could interest readers who enjoy those genres. For those who like fantasy there are witches, fallen stars who are people, faeries, magic, and flying pirates in the sky. It has action and some violence as the sons of the Lord of Stormhold kill each other off to win the crown. It has romance as Yvaine and Tristran fall in love throughout the novel’s story. With so many genres, this can appeal to many readers, however I would suggest readers who are 13 as some of the violent content may be more suitable for older readers.

An utterly charming adult fairy tale, magnificently read by Neil himself.

Despite promises of smut in one negative review, nipples appear only once and briefly at that. ( )

better and different than the movie. ( )

Short review: I loved it. Long review: Gaiman's skill at storytelling, the piece that makes his comics and books such a success, is his voice. I mentioned before that his book, "American Gods" was one I didn't like, but I respected him a lot as a writer. Stardust shows why. His tone and voice as a writer walk a very specific and wonderful line between humorous fantasy and serious realism. I liken it to the move "The Princess Bride". Everyone knows the movie is a comedy, but the tone treats its subject seriously... and that's the magic. Stardust is a romantic fantasy filled with unicorns, fallen stars, witches and princes. At the same time, it is a quirksome coming of age story. The writing is strong. The characters are interesting. The adventure isn't cliche or the same old expected fare. With all that going for it the real gem, as I said, is the voice. ( )

I’ve watched the movie adaptation many times so I guess it has been planted in my mind the story as such. Hence reading the book was kinda hard to absorb. Fluidly written no doubt but the story differed at some point, naturally, and not as enthralling as the movie.

Here's my full review:

While the bones of the story (the hero, the quest, the maiden) are traditional, Gaiman offers a tale that is fresh and original. Though the plot begins with disparate threads, by the end they are all tied together and the picture is complete. The resolution is satisfying and complex, proving that there is more to fairy tales than "happily ever after."

This is a refreshingly creative story with appealing characters that manages to put a new twist on traditional fairy-tale themes.
hinzugefügt von Shortride | bearbeitenLibrary Journal, Laurel Bliss
 
Gaiman gently borrows from many fine fantasists--for starters, from Andersen, Tolkien, Macdonald, and, for the framing device, Christina Rossetti in her "Goblin Market" --but produces something sparkling, fresh, and charming, if not exactly new under the sun. Superb.
hinzugefügt von Shortride | bearbeitenBooklist, Ray Olson
 
a comic romance, reminiscent of James Thurber's fables, in which even throwaway minutiae radiate good-natured inventiveness. There are dozens of fantasy writers around reshaping traditional stories, but none with anything like Gaiman's distinctive wit, warmth, and narrative energy. Wonderful stuff, for kids of all ages.

Epigraph (Motto/Zitat)
Die Informationen stammen von der englischen "Wissenswertes"-Seite. Ändern, um den Eintrag der eigenen Sprache anzupassen.
Go and catch a falling star,
Get with child a mandrake root,
Tell me where all past years are,
Or who cleft the devil's foot,
Teach me to hear mermaids singing,
Or to keep off envy's stinging,
And find
What wind
Serves to advance an honest mind.
If thou be'st born to strange sights,
Things invisible to see,
Ride ten thousand days and nights,
Till age snow white hairs on thee,
Thou, when thou return'st, wilt tell me,
All strange wonders that befell thee,
And swear,
No where
Lives a woman true and fair.
If thou find'st one, let me know,
Such a pilgrimage were sweet;
Yet do not, I would not go,
Though at next door we might meet,
Though she were true, when you met her,
And last, till you write your letter,
Yet she
Will be
False, ere I come, to two, or three.
- John Donne, 1572-1631

The illustrated and unillustrated versions of Stardust are, in fact, substantially the same text. The most notable differences are that some single paragraphs in the illustrated version are separated into two or three in the unillustrated version.

The only reason to consider the two versions to be separate works (though it is not a bad one) is that Charles Vess's many illustrations are a substantial part of the original version.
