No screenwriter in Hollywood is this good at tapping into the dusky eeriness at the heart of every good myth. It is the novelization of Jim Henson's Labyrinth. Completely unhinged Jareth turns children not recovered in time into goblins to join the ranks of his Sarah's little brother. It is so beautifully similar to the movie. I love the added dialogue and getting to know Hoggle a little better. Ones with unfair step-mother and unwanted younger sibling. See, Jareth is my favourite male character but I wouldn't date him - I know better than that.
The novel itself was only around 200 pages long, which is easy to cover in less than five to seven days or so. Now I wish the publishers would release a red copy like the one Sarah has in the movie. I think it just comes down to the world working better in visual form and with the songs. Labyrinth was one of them. Yes - if you're already familiar with the story. When I saw that there was a novelization of it, I just had to have it. Every creature that Sarah meets is so unique and interesting - despite their flaws, each and every one of them will surely warm your heart.
We follow Sarah through the Labyrinth as we do in the movie. Because I'm a nostalgic nerd. But this This novel that is based upon the film 'Labyrinth' starring David Bowie was phenomenal. If you like Jane Eyre or The Phantom Of The Opera or Wuthering Heights , you'll like this. Maybe this would work better if you haven't seen the movie first? But even realising all this I still go. Her opposite number is Jareth, who is called the Goblin King but is not himself a goblin. As it turns out it was wonderful! Help her navigate fantastical locations alongside her companions Hoggle, Ludo, and Sir Didymus.
Jareth didn't impress me in the book either. Antes de empezar a contaros de que va la novela o cualquier cosa, y antes de que sigáis leyendo estas líneas será mejor que corráis a ver la película homónima protagonizada por David Bowie y Jennifer Connelly porque sino no os vais a enterar absolutamente de nada de lo que os cuente, y es que esta no es una novela al uso. Oh, how I tried to watch and love that movie. His Sarah could not be dead, but was in fact being hidden by her wicked step-mother! So, thank goodness for that! Turns out there is no original book, but this novelization does, in some ways, serve the same function. Then Jareth began to move, all over the seven perspectives, and Sarah watched him as he moved. With that elaboration, I thought the ending would address that 'mommy issue' again, maybe tie up loose ends, but no. If you like the book , you'll like this.
Adulthood, yet she doesn't seem like she's ready for it. However, the main characters are curiously flat and blank in the novelization. I mean, who wouldn't want to spend their immortality with this guy? Still, she is determined that nothing will stop her from saving her son! The writing is usually very poor, with little description and the characters are never fleshed out enough. I loved the film, which made this book enjoyable, the archived artwork was also a bonus. Sarah vive con su padre, su madrastra y su hermanastro Toby, además de con un perro de nombre Merlín.
This book clearly shows the reason why I usually don't read direct novelizations - while reading them I just feel as if I'm reading a more fleshed-out version of the script of the movie which I find dissatisfying. For those of you sadly unfamiliar here is a little into to them: David Bowie um Goblin King He has taken her baby brother lesson one: be careful what you wish for. Production, The movie is distributed by TriStar Pictures. This would have had to be a hot steaming pile of you know what to not get 5 stars from me. I liked that the ending was a little sadder, that party-dance scene always felt kind of strange to me as a kid. After finding out years ago it was out of print, searching, finding it for hundreds of dollars I had given up the hope of reading it. This is a fantastic bind up for any Labyrinth lover and a welcome addition to my bookshelf.
The novelization is currently out of print, but has been transcribed and can read. It's perfectly fine to like problematic things, as long as you realise they are problematic, and this is the case. Still, she is determined that nothing will stop her from saving her son! I felt reading the book explained a lot more about Sarah's relationships and why she is who she is. This is a real shame, because both leads would be so well-suited to that kind of description. Hint: she really wanted him to kiss her but we knew that already. There's also a handful of scenes of weird creatures being weird in weird places that didn't make it into the movie that are very fun.
It starred David Bowie as Jareth and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah. But Labyrinth is a different beast. Here we see them in action, particularly her obsessive-compulsive arrangement of her stuffed animals, and her complete lack of common ground with her stepmother. It is the novelization of Jim Henson's Labyrinth. No screenwriter in Hollywood is this good at tapping into the dusky eeriness at the heart of every good myth. The descriptions and use of words were wonderful and the ending though sad from the point of view of us romantic fans though yes I do understand what with the age difference, some boundaries should never be crossed.
