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. But 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.

Review:

"A beautiful, memorable work." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Review:

"[O]riginal and well-written....This is a refreshingly creative story with appealing characters that manages to put a new twist on traditional fairy-tale themes." Library Journal

Review:

"While the bones of the story...are traditional, Gaiman offers a tale that is fresh and original. Though the plot begins with disparate threads, by the end they are all tied together and the picture is complete." School Library Journal

Review:

"Stardust is a beautifully written fairy tale for adults (and precocious children) which will refresh even the most deflated sense of wonder. It's a shimmering, shining, iridescent treasure for readers to cherish." Paula Guran, Event Horizon

Review:

"A twisting, wondrous tale full of magic." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Strange...marvelous...magical." Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"His finest work yet...prose as smooth as twelve-year-old scotch." St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Review:

"[Gaiman] charms again...deftly written....There are dozens of fantasy writers around reshaping traditional stories, but none with anything like Gaiman's distinctive wit, warmth, and narrative energy. Wonderful stuff, for kids of all ages." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Grounding his narrative in mythic tradition, Gaiman employs exquisitely rich language, natural wisdom, good humor and a dash of darkness to conjure up a fairy tale in the grand tradition." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Gaiman gently borrows from many fine fantasists...but produces something sparkling, fresh, and charming, if not exactly new under the sun. Superb." Booklist

Review:

"Eminently readable — a charming piece of work." Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

In this charming fairy tale, Gaiman weaves a magical story set long ago in the tiny English village of the Wall — a place where things are not quite what they seem. Unabridged. 5 CDs.
