By Singing Light

Stardust - Neil Gaiman So different from the movie! I don’t think it’s a matter of better or worse, though the movie is certainly more exciting. But the characterization is different, the presentation of the backstory is different, the plot is different. All in all, I thought that it needed a bit more time spent on some of the big points–they were rather smoothed over. (Dec 2011)
