Description

Matthew Beard and Sophie Rundle star in a brand-new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman, narrated by Eleanor Bron.

Challenged to retrieve a fallen star, Tristran Thorn leaves the sleepy English village of Wall and crosses into the land of Faerie and the realm of Stormhold. Locating the star, he discovers it is no meteorite but a young woman, Yvaine.

When Yvaine evades him and escapes, Tristran discovers he is not the only one in pursuit of the star: there are dark forces in this magical land, and he must find Yvaine before she falls into their clutches. As he does so, Tristran will uncover the secret to his own identity and a fate beyond his wildest dreams.

Directed by Dirk Maggs and Heather Larmour, and featuring over 35 minutes of unbroadcast material, this stunning new dramatisation boasts an extensive cast including Frances Barber, Maggie Steed, Nicholas Boulton, Blake Ritson, Bryan Dick, Charlotte Riley, Aisling Loftus, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Alex Macqueen, Matthew Beard and Sophie Rundle. There are also cameo appearances by Tori Amos and Neil Gaiman. Duration: 2 hours 30 mins approx.

Another Brilliant Realization

It is, admittedly, hard to produce a bad show when you are faithful to great source material. And the source material is great. But so to is this production. The voice actors are wonderful at bringing their parts to life. The sound effects and the like are great. One can almost smell the marketplace. The producers had the sense to stay true to the source material and the result is a true winner. The only downside of any of these wonderful BBC/Neil Gaiman productions is that they seem to end too quickly.

A Wonderful Adaptation

I love Neil Gaiman's works with all of my heart. And in this heart, a special place is there for Stardust. I've read the novel, the graphic novel, watched the movie, and have now listened to the audio performance. It was simply marvelous. I wish the sky pirates had gotten more attention but I can overlook that easily. And thanks to the narrator (one of my favorite performances) the subtle details that made reading this story so enchanting were also there. Specifically, my favorite line in the whole book made it which featured an unlucky mouse on the search for the Nut of Wisdom. Gaiman's most fanciful tale found a fantastic place to land... Or crash rather. And if you're a fan of mature fairy tales, intelligent prose, and stunning full cast productions, then buy this now. If you're already a fan of Gaiman and especially of Stardust, I don't need to tell you that. You already own it.

Wonderful

An absolute beautiful story and the performance is incredible. The voicing and production is exactly what I hear in my head when I read this.

Star-studded topaz beauty.

This full cast production simplifies the edges of the story, & is ultimately satisfying in the ending scene they kept from the book. Incredibly poignant & beautiful, a little sad. But that is how life is. You live for the small joys in between. I enjoyed this book throughly.

brought to life!

So much better than the video version, enthralling and beautifully crafted, I didn't want it to end. Sigh, on to more Gaiman!

A Beautiful Performance

What I Liked: While I was largely unfamiliar with the cast at first, I was surprised by how well they worked together. Despite memories of the movie in mind, this radio play was a creature of its own and the actors assembled for the production were certainly chosen thoughtfully. I want to cite people for standout performances but its hard to point to anyone since they were all quite good at things.

The way things were structured and the use of incidental music and foley effects here and there helped make the production feel more like a play unfolding. But even if you''re just listening to it, the story feels nicely vivid and makes for a great listeing experience. So even though I knew the story well enough, I was still keen on listening for the next chapter.

What Could Have Been Better: It's hard to criticize such a beloved story that I have already consistently appreciated across the story's incarnations. So that's not really the issue I suppose. We could cite certain sequences that may have felt more important in your head but that didn't translate well to the production, but that boils down to a matter of opinion.

I guess the only other challenge is if you don't quite have the constitution for appreciating long form audio content of this nature, this book may not be the one to change your mind. The very "fairy tale" structure of the original story makes it similarly slow-paced at times as an audio production. So that's another minor quibble.

Good old fairytale and good old radio-play

I grew up on radio-plays, my mother did not read bedtime stories but put on the cassette with a full cast play on it.
This presentation of Stardust reminded me of those evenings.
The performances, the voices selected are wonderful and clear, the background noises just perfect to convey the illusion. It is like I was watching a movie. Bear in mind the story is only broadly parallel with the real movie with Claire Danes starring. I have not read the book but don't want to either, I am satisfied with this version.
So 5+ stars on all!!

Stardust

A rare production in which the abridgement loses little to nothing of the text and the entire cast is brilliantly suited to its various parts. I have listened to this one several times and can continue doing so; it's wonderful each and every time.
