Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' Stardust: Being a Romance Within The Realms of Faerie

by and

Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' Stardust: Being a Romance Within The Realms of Faerie  Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Gaiman's all-text version is sure to delight, but as a Charles Vess fan, I prefer to read the illustrated version, which comes in both the standard trade paperback and a gorgeous oversized hardcover containing a plethora of Vess's sketches, Gaiman's original proposal for the series, and other goodies....To my surprise, Stardust has held up beautifully; if anything, it has eclipsed my memories and gotten better with age." Chris Bolton, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria — even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that old stone wall, Tristran learns, lies Faerie — where nothing, not even a fallen star, is what he imagined.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a remarkable quest into the dark and miraculous — in pursuit of love and the utterly impossible.

Synopsis:

In the sleepy English countryside of decades past, a lovelorn young man stepsthrough a gap in a high stone wall, and into the most unforgettable adventureof his life.
