At the dawn of the Victorian era, life moves leisurely in the sleepy village of Wall.

Young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and, to win her love, vows to bring her a star they see fall from the night sky.

It is an oath that sends him over the town's ancient wall and into the mysterious land of Faerie - a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining . . .

TheBrit626 ,

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.
