I LOVE this book! So much better than the movie. Neil Gaiman rocks!

Product Description
Catch a fallen star . . .

Tristran thorn promised to bring back a fallen star. So he sets out on a journey to fulfill the request of his beloved, the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester—and stumbles into the enchanted realm that lies beyond the wall of his English country town. Rich with adventure and magic, Stardust is one of master storyteller Neil Gaiman's most beloved tales, and the inspiration for the hit movie.

I made a visit to Joshua Tree as I was craving one of their yummy burgers and just happened to find this on the shelf. It has been one that I have been wanting to read. Thanks Minerva101.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I love the Stardust movie so was pretty excited when I saw this. Certainly enjoyable but I thought the ending was kind of sudden and in some ways sad. I loved the characters and the world that Gaiman created but I kind of have to admit that I enjoy the movies' ending more (ack, I can't belive I just wrote that, usually I love the books way more). I'm taking this to February's "Unusual Expressions of Love" themed meeting. I think this works.

Neil Gaiman is fairly fantastic, so I'm sure this is great, and I have the distinct advantage of having never seen the movie.

Journal Entry 6 by DendriticTrees at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, May 01, 2012
I really liked this and I loved the writing style which really made it seem like an epic fairy tale.

I also found the chapter titles hilarious.

OK - it is finally read - everyone needs a fairy tale to read when doing drudgery of report cards. Loved the Tristan character - he was delightfully different.

Just as I loved the movie I also loved the book. What a cute, quick, and fun read. I love the style it's written in. In some ways I perfer the movie and in other ways I perfer the book. Yay for fun fairy tales!

Thanks for the fun read~

Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing March meet-up. I've seen the movie, and now it's time to read the book.

Journal Entry 17 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, April 12, 2013
I was surprised by how different the book was from the movie. The basic plot is there, but there were a lot of liberties taken. I totally thought the lightning harvesting pirates would play a bigger role in the book - their ship is on the cover - but they're only around for a chapter. Aside from that, it's classic Neil Gaiman.
