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 #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.
Stardust is one of my favorite movies ever, so I was very hesitant to read the book. There were some differences throughout, and I actually liked seeing this. This is my second book by Gaiman, and his writing seems to be able to suck me right in and not let go. It’s extraordinary!
Tristran was a bit of an idiot, but no surprise because he is also one in the movie, too! I loved Yvaine in this book, and all the side characters. This was one of the few times where I felt the movie was actually better than the book, even though I loved them both!
The unicorn scene was much gorier here than in the movie which I liked that part better, so I would debate which scenes I liked better where. Yvaine was a star, and she really did shine here! Lol, I like my last line!
Have you read this book or seen the movie?
