In every review I have made of his novels I comment on the amazing worlds that he is able to vividly birth with his writing. Nowhere, perhaps with American Gods as the only exception, is this more apparent than in Stardust.
The fantastical creatures and events that are depicted in this book, are truly a pleasure to behold. The way the story is narrated in particular, makes the reader feel as if events are being guided by some higher power like fate, though it's obviously the author, and this lends itself greatly to the classical fantasy feel of the book.
Its also interesting to note that this struck me as being one of the lighter fantasy worlds that Gaiman has crafted. I quite enjoyed this when juxtaposed to the London Underground of Neverwhere.
I greatly enjoyed this book and its call back to the classic fairy tales of days past. I can't help but wish there was more.
I'm glad I stayed with it. Even Neil Gaiman, in the acknowledgements, admitted that, "It's been a long book and a long journey,". And I agree completely. My verdict is still to be determined in the Starz adaptation although I'm enjoying the visuals. I wish they had made a full length movie version of it, maybe in two parts, rather than spreading the series out over four or five years.
I am very anxious to read his children's book, Gaveyard Stories, (I think that's the name of it) since it has won such prestigious awards.
My only beef with this book and the author, is that I feel shortchanged in content. There could have been so much more to this story - so many more details that would have filled several books. I don't want to detract from the author's talent, but I feel like I was supposed to get the whole gourmet meal and only got an appetizer, which is meant as a compliment. My appetite has been whetted, but my hunger for more has not been sated.
My one gripe is that all characters speak in Words of Wisdom mode very frequently, and at times it's distracting, but since the story is like a fairy tale it doesn't feel entirely wrong. It's like it's being narrated, and the audiobook enhanced the effect greatly, making it easier to accept.
I'd recommend it without reservations.
