Este pequeño libro es en realidad un cuento de hadas largo, aunque pasado por el filtro del escritor, lo que significa más oscuro en general, conmovedor por momentos, poco convencional casi siempre y de eso que te hace sonreir pero no puede evitar dejar cierto regusto amargo. Y además con ese estilo suave que invita a seguir leyendo, es como "leer cuesta abajo".
Por cierto, la peli es divertida, cambia cosas y añade otras (como el baile de Robert DeNiro o la marioneta del final), ¡pero en el libro pasan muchas más cosas!
Nevertheless this is a beautiful tale and, even if it can be a little dragged on at certain points, it is a good and fast read.

Brilliantly written and a nice wee twist 😉
I don’t know how to express what I’m feeling now that I’ve finished Stardust.
The writing style is very fanciful, I honestly don’t know how else to explain it. Sometimes the descriptions were so incredible I stopped to read them a few times, but that style carried over into every aspect of the book and in some cases it felt like it took too long for the author to get through a very short scene.
Despite the fact that it felt drawn out I wanted to keep reading. I’m completely torn because I kind of loved it but I also kind of didn’t.
I much prefer the emotion in the film and as much as i liked the book it is painfully emotionless.
The star and Tristran just seem to suddenly decide to be together, you just have to imagine that they built up a relationship with no help from the author. Whereas the film uses their time on the air ship to bring the characters together.
And although i do like the peaceful ending with the 'evil' witch, it did seem a little rushed and unsatisfying. And again, a huge lack of emotion. A total disregard for his newly discovered mother and his father left behind the wall.
Rarely do I ever say a film is better than its novel, but in this case it's simple true. I loved the magic in the film. So much that i named my son Trystan. Anyway, book or film, this is a story that has touched my heart and the most enjoyable fairytale ive discovered :) x
There were things that bothered me, and the main reason I gave 4 stars and not 5, the book isn't all that long, I felt like the characters had more to tell, but then, my imagination is still thinking about them 2 days on, so maybe that's the intention, who knows. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would definitely recommend it to any, particularly those that enjoy fantasy.
