Neil Gaiman – Stardust

 

I was a little disappointed with this one, and that’s a shame. I guess I find Neil Gaiman to be hit or miss, and this one was a miss for me. I suspect that the film was probably better, although I wouldn’t know because I haven’t seen it. After reading the book, I have no desire to see it, either.

Sure, the writing was beautiful in places here, and the overall story line was decent enough. I just didn’t feel absorbed by it, and even just fifty pages in or so I was feeling kind of bored. It was a relief when I hit the end, and at one point I was thinking about giving up on it entirely, which surprised me because I’d been expecting it to be pretty good.

Eh, it was just okay, and I doubt it’ll stick with me for any length of time. I found myself forgetting the story even while I was still reading it, and if you give it a week then I won’t remember the main character’s name (right now, I’m pretty sure it was Tristan or Tristram). I was just expecting so much more and it ended up being bland.
