New York Times Bestselling Author

Give the gift of STARDUST!

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 the #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.

Critically acclaimed for a reason

The prose is almost florid, the settings sketched out in a way that rightly assumes the reader has familiarity with standard fantasy fares and tropes; but the plot, with its beats only predictable enough to make a reader feel clever, is satisfying enough to keep the pages turning all the way to its fulfilling conclusion.
I do, however, feel as if there is a bit of that Gaiman sexism here; there is a female protagonist’s companion and object of affection, but she exercises nearly no agency of her own and is treated much as a prize or possession while justifying it all as a rescue.

No illustrations

This is an illustrated novel, but the version sold here is the text only. Not worth it...

Not bad, pleasant light reading

Hmmm….Well, I finished it (that says a lot as I won’t finish a book if I’m not interested) I don’t think I should have watched the movie first. The ending of the book seemed anticlimactic with one of the villains, I thought that was a shame, so I ended the book with a “that’s it?” kind of feeling. However, the characters were well created and I wanted to know what would happen to them in their journey. I also love the basic idea of the story, very very creative. Mr. Gaiman tends to have very creative story ideas, so I was pleased with his unique star fallen idea. All in all, not a bad read, just don’t expect a big grand finale like the movie. :)
