Publisher's Summary

Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria Forester - 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 stone barrier, Tristran learns, lies Faerie . . . and the most exhilarating adventure of the young man's life.
From number-one New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman comes a tale of the dark and miraculous - a quest for true love and the utterly impossible.

An Adult Fairytale

Awesome. The gift edition with the added interview at the end is definitely worth it. One of my favorite stories of all time.

One of the best narrations I've experienced

Do you know how sometimes you hear a story and a few days after it's over, you're still stuck in that world? That's my experience with Stardust. It's an imaginative and lovely adult fairytale with glorious prose, and it will leave you wishing we had more adult fairytales like this one. By the end of the story, the characters have more depth than in a typical fairytale, which I appreciated. That said, it's not my all-time favorite story.

Gaiman's narration is a huge part of the reason why I'm still thinking of Stardust two days after finishing it. It's magnificent. Each character has his/her own voice, and there's just something so pleasant--for lack of a better word--about the performance. It's exciting and entertaining, but the general narration (not characters' voices) is still somehow soft, like in a bedtime story. (I'm probably about to buy everything Gaiman has ever narrated.)
