    The Princess Bride de William Goldman (norabelle414, Morteana)
    norabelle414: Both are hilarious, imaginative fairy tales.

  3. 121
    The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making de 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
    The King of Elfland's Daughter de 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
    Lud-in-the-Mist de Hope Mirrlees (twilightnocturne, moonstormer, isabelx)

    Alícia al país de les meravelles, i, A través de l'espill de Lewis Carroll (keristars)

  9. 104
    Jonathan Strange i el senyor Norrell de 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 de 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.

Gaiman, Neil. Stardust. 1998. Harper Perennial, 2006.
SPOILER ALERT.
Reading Stardust shortly after I watched the 2007 film adaptation with a screenplay by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, I was struck by the difference in the tone of the book and film. There is a nice side-by-side comparison of the two on Stack Exchange (adaptation comparison - Stardust book to film differences? - Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange). Gaiman draws his inspiration from comic books, nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and classic fantasies by the likes of C. S. Lewis and Tolkien. His wit is dry, understated, and literary. We have the sense that growing up is a sad business. When Tristran meets his mom at the end, the first thing she does is tell him to get to work, and he finds he can never really make his star-goddess lover happy. When they are considering marriage, she tells him, you know, we are never likely to have children. By contrast, the screenwriters tighten up the plot, speed up the action, and go all-in on the Rom-Com elements. Vaughn has said he was inspired by The Princess Bride and Midnight Run. One can also see the influence of Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam, who was involved in the early days of the project. Reading the novel, you will look in vain for the prototype of DeNiro’s Captain Shakespeare character. 4 stars, ( )

A cute little adventure in fairyland... ( )

A somewhat odd fairytale, but a good one. ( )
  mutantpudding | Dec 26, 2021 |

This is the first time, I'd read Stardust. Usually I like to read the book then see the film if I liked the book. I almost always like the book better then the film. For some reason, I hadn't known the film was written by Gaiman or I'd have read it first. I really liked the movie, and now many years later when have finally read the book, and enjoyed the adult fairy tale very much. It's fairly short so the characters don't get a lot of development side from the main two, but that's alright a fairy tale is more about the story than the character development and the main character does indeed grow and change as he moves through the story.

But someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again

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.

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."
afegit per Shortride | editaSchool Library Journal, Susan Salpini
 
This is a refreshingly creative story with appealing characters that manages to put a new twist on traditional fairy-tale themes.
afegit per Shortride | editaLibrary 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.
afegit per Shortride | editaBooklist, 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.

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.
