I really enjoyed this fairie story for grown ups. It was gentle, amusing and thouroughly entertaining. A lovely read thank you for sharing it kangaroo.

I have now searched through all my old PMs & see that I posted this to Aquina on 25 March. I know that I posted it as I can remember wrapping it up & sending it when I came back from my honeymoon, so am glad that I found "proof" in my old PMs. I also see that Aquina has started journalling again after a gap of a few months, so hope this gets journalled soon :)

A lovely, gentle story...surprisingly un-scary for Neil Gaiman. I missed Gaiman's dark twisted sense of humor, but even so a very likeable book.

It is very difficult to find nrrdgrrl,she seems to be always on the moove...she is in Africa now.
The book is safe though, I know that kangaroo really likes it, and I want her to rest assured.

Journal Entry 11 by nrrdgrrl from Johannesburg - Fourways, Gauteng South Africa on Wednesday, February 23, 2005
yippeeee, stardust has arrived!

at the end of september, when aquina first contacted me about the book, i had just ventured into the ivory coast. luckily i could report her after a week that i was unexpectedly -but safe- back in europe.

when she contacted me next, i was in the process of moving to south africa... but happy coincidence: currently staying in the netherlands. so while i kept moving about, the book eventually just travelled across the channel (i hope, because last friday i mentioned to aquina it still hadn't arrived). and now it has finally landed safely.

thanks all for getting stardust here! i'm looking forward to reading it after my current book. and i'll be meeting biba89 on march 10th, so the next stage is secured.

pleasant fairy tale with an astounding number of deaths. the story category makes you know the main idea of the ending right away, but that doesn't mean it's a dull tale.

even though i liked this, and am happy to have read it, i prefer gaiman's next-to-reality stories.


missed two occasions to hand this to biba - last thursday (10 march) i hadn't finished the book yet, and i couldn't make it to the enschede meetup today. as i'm leaving the country for a couple of weeks, it's now off in the mail.

edit 17 march: sorry, didn't get round to actually putting it in the mailbox. i've just dropped it off in the safest way possible: in the hands of a postman, whom i encountered at a mailbox.

And finally, after some time, it ended up in my hands. I all but forget about this ring! Luckily I don't have any other rings at the moment.

I finished it in two days, it was so lovely. The thing about fairy tales is that usually the characters are flatter than the paper the tales are written on, but not with this story, no. Gaiman is indeed a storyteller above all.
Now the nice touch to reading this book, is that during those days I have received a most precious gift from my mother, a thin golden chain with a pendant of a blossoming flower, rooted with a pearl, made of filigrain gold thread, tiny pearls and an intense green peridote. It could have easily made it into this book as some enchanted faerie art. It was made in England, about a century ago. I did feel enchanted. What a lovely story!
I will cherish this book a little longer, while looking for somebody to hand it to.
