Format: Paperback
Tristran Thorn would do absolutely anything to win pretty Victoria Forrester's heart. Even venture across The Wall into mysterious Faerie in search of a fallen star.

But once he enters Faerie, strange things begin to happen.

Tristran knows the location of every place in the land. He meets a strange, small man who gives him a candle that allows him to travel great distances. And when he finally finds the fallen star, Tristran discovers that it is not a lump of rock like he thought, but a young woman, who has quite the mind of her own.

Tristran, though, isn't the only one looking for the star. The witch queen and a group of three brothers all want something of it. For these brothers, it's the power she possesses. For the witch, it's her heart.

STARDUST was completely entrancing, charming, and a surprisingly quick read. The star's spunk and Tristran's humanity are both to be admired in this adventurous tale that will make you laugh out loud and break into tears. This is one book not to be missed.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was drawn to Stardust after enjoying several other books by Neil Gaiman, especially American Gods and Good Omens, among others. Recently I looked through my library for something new I hadn’t read before and decided to pick up Stardust. From the first few paragraphs, I was immediately hooked and it became very difficult to stop reading this truly fantastic tale!
The strange thing about this book is that it doesn’t entirely feel like a Gaiman novel in that it is much less gritty than his other works, though it retains all the charm, fantasy and other wonderful qualities. What I liked best is that it has a sort of dreamy aspect with all the magic, strange creatures and unusual situations, and yet it remains very suitable for adults. It does contain a bit of sex and a fair amount of violence, though overall it gave me a feeling of well being throughout. As usual, Gaiman has a rich vocabulary that evokes magnificent images while keeping everything simple.
There is no need to summarize the story in this review; all you really need to know is that if you liked any of Neil Gaiman’s other novels and are into fantasy, you will love this book. It is simply beautiful, without a doubt among the author’s best works to date.
Highly recommended, 5/5.

This book was not my usual read, but I did enjoy it. This was my first time reading anything by this author and I think I'll look into his other books now.

I saw the movie first, then wanted to read the book. Very good book. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors.

Really liked the prose of the book. The story is very close to the movie but near the end. Good kid book.

I am a new Neil Gaiman fan and had tried to read this sometime a few years ago. I started this book the other day and it was lovely, the artwork complements Gaiman's writing and makes it all the more. The cover is just lovely and is stunning to look at. As this wouldn't be the first book I would recommend to a new reader (seeing as it is a bit more advanced) it would be perfect for the avid reader.
