    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)
    isabelx: Villages on the borders of Faerie.

    Alícia al país de les meravelles, i, A través de l'espill de Lewis Carroll (keristars)
    keristars: Though Alice is less of a traditional fairy tale type than Stardust, it shares a style and many narrative and plot elements.
  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.

So charming ( )
  bspar | Jan 1, 2023 |
This is yet another case of 'saw the movie, LOVED IT, so read the book.' And if I had to pick which I prefer, it would be the movie. Whilst very similar there are slight modifications with the characters and even the ending. And I must admit, I prefer the movie ending and also its development of the lightning ship's captain, who in the book was barely mentioned, as well as the story of the seven brothers, and even Tristran's mother and father. What failed most with the book was the love story between Tristran and Yvaine, which I could barely call a love story.

Unto the positives; obviously the story is fantastic and the characters diverse which is why the movie was able to be great as it had a good foundation to build upon, but just as with other Gaiman novels, although the idea is fantastic I didn't feel it was executed as well as it could have been, the ending especially wasn't satisfying and felt messily woven.

I read this years ago but I'm about to do a re-read. I liked the book the first time(s) and I really enjoy the movie. ( )
  Ermonty | Dec 19, 2022 |
Good fantasy novel. I read the regular novel, not the graphic version. ( )
  kslade | Dec 8, 2022 |
I'd actually seen the movie, and this is the audiobook version read by Neil himself (or, @neilhimself on Twitter), but I suspect that even the first time through it would come across as both new and familiar at the same time.

Neil Gaiman is a wonderful reader for his own work. ( )

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.
