Oung Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand Tristran vows to retrieve a fallen. The world building the characters the story all absolutely amazing He wondered how it could have taken him so long to realize he cared for her and he told her so and she called him an idiot and he declared that it was the finest thing that ever a man had been called There's the wonder there's the intrigue there's the titch of magic interspersed with ethereal Neil Gaiman has finally caught me on a storyWe have Tristian a product of his father's wandering gaze and a fairy lass who in a fit of youthful passion makes an improbable promise the hottest girl in the village Victoria apple of his eye demands for Tristan crosses the boundary between our world and theirs in search of a fallen star And thus begins his harrowing journey through the gap in the Wall and into the land of fairy to find an unwitting and unwilling starThis story read like an ancient tale handed down from generation to generation The only thing that threw me out of it was the weird sex Gaiman always always strong arms some sex into the books and while it did further the plot I think that the events would've played out exactly the same without the naked bits thrown in to titillate the audienceThat being said the rest of the book was magnificent Very rarely someone comes to Wall knowing what they are looking for and these people they will sometimes allow through There is a look in the eyes and once seen it cannot be mistaken This is the kind of book that makes you wonderwhat if And hope for the less likely answerI would highly recommend the fully illustrated edition of this book Stardust Being a Romance within the Realms of Faerie there's something about having pictures on nearly every page that brings this book to the next level Audiobook CommentsI read and listened to this novel The audiobook narrator Neil Gaiman himself did an excellent jobthough if push came to shove I'd pick the illustrated edition For the record the movie betterYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

Dear Mr GaimanDamn you Damn you straight to hell You've written beautiful faerie stories in your plainspoken postmodern prose and left my own projected frontiers woefully trodden It has nothing to do with your brilliance Had I been born before you I would most likely be the one writing clever novels about fallen stars and sly gods I would've I swearBut instead I was born forty years too late and your Faerie Neil do you mind if I call you Neil Your Faerie like all of your creations is a perfectly plausible reality praised by literary critics the literate's dollar and even the behemoth Movie Adaptation Your prose is simple if you'll pardon my saying so not elevated with exotic adjectives but simple and modern easily accessible solid uality prose This reflects nothing upon you of course your authorship is the perfect marriage of your own writing talent and our modern culture Shakespeare's work seems ridiculously complicated to us now but he wrote for the masses just like you Our masses do not value rhetorics metre or internal rhyme or I'm sure you'd write with such tools No Neil you write with one very powerful tool distilled imagination Escapism unreality creativity novelty and all their side effects When the surrounding world seems unbearable the ever growing fetus of imagination is hope In slavery in misery in poverty in isolation a person can escape into the brighter day of dreams or the unknown future or the magic of FaerieAnd in a world where the demons in the closet are thrust into a florescent laboratory where telescopes and cameras record the crags and terrain of places where once there were dragons where we identify which crannies of the human mind are responsible for fear or love or sorrow and even plot out their corresponding hormonal compositions for manipulation and control perhaps in such a world we must desperately escape into the unexplorable reaches of Faerie The rules are simple there Help anyone in need and graciously accept their payment Stick with unerringly polite manners but never let down your guard You need a sharp wit to go with a good heart Never eat faerie foodPopular vote does not elect poor leaders in Faerie Weapons are easily recognizable not hidden in letters or water bottles Death stands tall with his scythe and cowl instead of creeping behind health care bills and drug overdoses and when he does come death was either justified or will be avenged Villages in Faerie are rarely overrun with revolutionaries toting machine guns or skeletal toddlers with distended bellies The old do not die alone there Despite enchanted princes and disguised witches Faerie makes sense than our world and if it doesn't it's alright It's Faerie So we escape into your novels Neil and into the worlds of Harry Potter and Lyra Silvertongue and we love you for it or in my case hate you We are too jaded to suspend disbelief yet we ache for magic We won't creep into a darkened room for the show but demand that you blossom crystal snowdrops here in Times Suare your right hand outstretched for our inspection while your left clutches a Starbucks cup We cannot leave our world for Faerie any so you bring it to us in pleasurable words easily explainable hidden just beyond an English countryside wall or under our feet or in corners we don't examine too closelyPlease keep it up SincerelyLH
