Oddly adorable adorably odd but best of all, honest. There is no stardust clouding Gaimans eyes. When he writes the truth shines thru.

We saw the preview for the Stardust movie before The Order of the Phoenix and I commented that I had not read this particular book. I grabbed it out of the bookcase where we keep our special books, and I am so glad I did.

This is a fairy tale, but oh so much more interesting and believable than other adult fairy tales I've read. Every sentence is a joy to read. The setting is so vivid it plays in front of my eyes as I read. And the ending... the best ending I've read in forever. This ranks right up there with Jos? Saramago's All the Names as an all-time favorite read. And I never thought anything would get close to that story.

(My edition is the hard to find Spike hardcover, which, if you can find, is a great addition to any library)

"Review A Day" by , "Stardust has held up beautifully; if anything, it has eclipsed my memories and gotten better with age....Gaiman turns a story of misbegotten love into an epic adventure that never ceases to entertain — and is all the stronger for its brevity." (read the entire Powells.com review)
"Review" by , "A beautiful, memorable work."
"Review" by , "His finest work yet...prose as smooth as twelve-year-old scotch."
"Review" by , "Strange...marvelous...magical."
"Review" by , "A twisting, wondrous tale full of magic."
"Synopsis" by , In the sleepy English countryside of decades past, there is a town that has stood on a jut of granite for six hundred years. And immediately to the east stands a high stone wall, for which the village is named. Here in the town of Wall, Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester. One crisp October night, as they watch, a star falls from the sky, and Victoria promises to marry Tristran if he'll retrieve that star and bring it back for her. It is this promise that sends Tristran through the only gap in the wall, across the meadow, and into the most unforgettable adventure of his life.In the sleepy English countryside of decades past, there is a town that has stood on a jut of granite for six hundred years.
