Oung Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand Tristran vows to retrieve a fallen. A friend gave me this book and I decided to read it before going to see the movie since I'd heard so many rave reviews of the film If the movie hadn't been my carrot though I never would have made it through the first chapter let alone the entire story Let me say that I adore the fantasy genre check my book list so this is not outside my interest However in attempting to write a fairy tale for adults Gaimon completely missed the mark Apparently his idea of what makes a story for adults is generous sprinklings of gore violence and sex Considering that the rest of the story is written with child like simplicity these sections are jarring to say the least When I stumbled across the first somewhat graphic sex scene within a few dozen pages I literally stopped to double check what book I was reading Call me a prude but I don't think words like nipple and thrust really flow well in a fairy tale Also I defy any fantasy lover to not flinch in horror at Gaimon's brutal and gore spattered murder and subseuent dismemberment of the heroine's unicorn Pooling bodily fluids No thank youStill it's not so much the sex violence that disturbed me although if I liked that kind of thing I wouldn't be reading fantasy; it was that they were included in a tale lauded for its childlike adventure and whimsy Even the description here on goodreads compares it to Princess Bride the Neverending Story an insult beyond comprehension to works which demonstrate that with skill an author can in fact write a fairy tale for adults without employing R rated tactics Lest you think I am allowing several instances of violence and sex to ruin my opinion of the entire work let me address the actual plot line and writing Gaimon can write obviously but the plot is riddled with fantasy travel cliches oh he slept in a hayloft How original and tiresome caricatures The hero is an unsympathetic clod the star is referred to almost exclusively as the star rendering her an inanimate object than a living being and the rare nuggets of interest such as the lightning pirates and the mysterious kingdom brotherhood are glossed over in a few paragraphs And for a book that does not flinch from sex where is the romance between the star hero We endure their pedantic bickering the entire book only to be rewarded with a passionless declaration of love betwixt them by the end The ending is predictable yet less than satisfying since the evil witch ueen escapes justice and ultimately the star faces a lonely immortality bereft of her love Not exactly the stuff happy endings are made ofUPDATE I finally saw the movie and let me say how grateful I am that it is NOTHING like the book Other than borrowing the majority of the plot character names the movie is night day different employing a vast amount of humor charm where the book was violent and grim I only wish my perspective had not been tainted by the book
