It is rare that I've seen a movie adaptation without reading the book first, but this is such a case. I absolutely adore the film (the first time I watched it, I did so twice in a row because I loved it that much), but still haven't gotten around to reading it. I shall rectify that someday, I promise.

One of my favourite Gaiman‘s novels, about young Tristan who ventures out of his small town of Wall into a magical kingdom in search of a star that has fallen from the sky, a gift for his lady crush. Things get complicated when he discovers the star is not a piece of celestial rock as he assumed. Will he be lucky to find the star and win the hand of his lady?

Today‘s #bookhaul is small but mighty. Do I already own copies of Stardust and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? Yes, yes I do...but not these editions. Super excited to add illustrated editions of both books to my library!!!😍

This is a re-read book stardust by Neil gainman.
Let me explain ever since finding audio books I have been listening to book's I once didn't like, take classics for instance I have listened to Beawulf, 39 steps and loads of poetry I once didn't like or understand.

DrexEdit I'll bet poetry would be great on audio. I always have trouble reading poetry, but I love to hear it read aloud! 2w
kaysworld1 @DrexEdit I'm the same as soon as I got on the band wagon for audio I started with poetry and I loved it so I went back through my read but quit book's and listened to some now I listen to anything and everything poetry. I avoided audio because I always vowed I would never cheat on paper books and I didn't get on well with my Kindle! Lol 2w

Officially calling it so I can go to bed. 😴 - Read for 15:02:28

I finished 5 graphic novels, 2 audiobooks. I started another audiobook, have about 100 pages left in the tagged book, and read another few chapters of an ebook.

I‘m happy with the weekend!

Gorgeously written, once you get into the book it‘s difficult to put it down. I read it as if I were in a trance, finished the whole thing in four hours and it felt as if thirty minutes had passed.

Also I'm using this for the #BBRC #yeahbaby When It Rains, It Pours - There are so many curses, witches, enchanted nuts, princes that are field mice, princes turned to birds, a tree nymph to a tree; that there could be at least 10 other tales inside this one. @LibrarianRyan

I had watched the movie before I ever realize there was a book! The book was interesting and familiar, like the inkling of a remembered dream. I certainly felt like I had more background and an inside look into the characters. There were some surprises and some not surprises and over all it was a wonderful journey to visit Wall once more!

Love, love, love. Stardust has always been one of my favorite movies, but it wasn‘t until recently I realized it was actually first a Neil Gaiman book. I‘d always heard really good things about him, but this was actually my first time reading one of his books. And now I think I‘m gonna go on a Neil Gaiman reading spree to make up for all the time I missed out on reading his stuff.

He wondered how it could have taken him so long to realize how much he cared for her, and he told her so, and she called him an idiot, and he declared that it was the finest thing that ever a man had been called.

Stardust | Neil Gaiman

When the knives were so sharp that she could have drawn either blade across your throat, and you would never have felt more than the touch of the lightest hair, as the spreading warmth of your life‘s blood made a quiet escape, the witch-queen put them away.

But then it occurred to him that any progress he had made on his quest so far he had made by accepting the help that had been offered to him.

“Do your kind sleep?” he asked her. “Of course. But not at night. At night, we shine.”

Every lover is in his heart a madman, and in his head a minstrel.

quote

Stardust | Neil Gaiman

He imagined he could see the very faces of the stars; pale, they were, and smiling gently, as if they had spent so much time above the world, watching the scrambling and the joy and the pain of the people below them, that they could not help being amused every time another little human believed itself the center of its world, as each of us does.

quote

Stardust | Neil Gaiman

High above him the stars glittered and gleamed, and the harvest moon shone golden yellow, the color of ripe corn.

quote
zahra7
Stardust | Neil Gaiman

The Stormhold itself was perched high in the sky, where the thunder clouds gathered before they went down to the lower air, spilling rain and lightning and devastation upon the place beneath.

quote
zahra7
Stardust | Neil Gaiman

I'd go to India for you and bring you the tusks of elephants and pearls as big as your thumb and rubies the size of wren‘s eggs. I'd go to Africa and bring you diamonds the size of cricket balls. I'd find the source of the Nile and name it after you. I'd go to America to the goldfields and I would not come back until I had your weight in gold. I would travel to the distant northlands and slay the mighty polar bears and bring you back their hides.

The stars were laid out like worlds or like ideas, uncountable as the trees in a forest or the leaves on a tree.

zahra7
Stardust | Neil Gaiman

Daydreams were strange, guilty fantasies, muddled and odd, of journeys through forests to rescue princesses from palaces, dreams of knights and trolls and mermaids.

quote
zahra7
Stardust | Neil Gaiman

There was certainly something odd about the stars: perhaps there was more color in them, for they glittered like tiny gems; perhaps there was something about the number of tiny stars, the constellations; something was strange and wonderful about the stars.

They came in ones, and they came in twos, and they landed at Dover or in London or in Liverpool: men and women with skins as pale as paper, skins as dark as volcanic rock, skins the color of cinnamon, speaking in a multitude of tongues.

quote
zahra7
Stardust | Neil Gaiman

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.

This fairy tale for adults is teeming with magic. I was not expecting what Tristan found when he searched for a fallen star to impress his crush. Once again, Neil Gaiman's genius shines through and his narration is well done.
