Publisher Description

Stardust is an enchanting and enthralling novel from Sunday Times bestseller and master storyteller Neil Gaiman. 'Charming in every sense of the word, and deeply satisfying' (Time Out), it will delight fans of Terry Pratchett and J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, as well as those who loved the feature film starring Robert De Niro, Claire Danes, Rupert Everett and Michelle Pfeiffer among others.

Life moves at a leisurely pace in the tiny town of Wall - named after the imposing stone barrier which separates the town from a grassy meadow. Here, young 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 star and deliver it to his beloved. It is an oath that sends him over the ancient wall and into a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining . . .

A beautiful tale of a more elegant world

Whilst 'American Gods' may still be his crowning achievement, and 'The Sandman' may be his most adventurous work - Stardust deserves its place in my heart more so than any other book that resides there.

Gaiman is master wordsmith and a wonderful storyteller but in this novel he most perfectly captures that sense of the wonderful and holds an audience there.

A more perfect coming of age story there never was and a reminder to any who care that you must never lose that spark that makes you you.
A stone cold recommendation to anyone who likes to be whisked away by their stories. And a hearty endorsement to any one who looks forward to returning having changed just a bit.
