rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of those rare times when I watched the movie before I read the book. I generally don't like to do this because it gives me a pre-conceived notion of what the characters look like, and what I expect to happen. That said, I LOVED the movie of Stardust, and decided to read the book (well, listen) not only on Neil Gaiman's reputation as an author, but because I liked the movie so much. He did a superb reading of his own novel, and I found that the movie stayed mostly true to the storyline, until the very end. I won't say what was different (other than just about everything), and recommend that you read it for yourself to find out.
