Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman believes that adults too deserve fairy tales ‘as satisfying, as meaty, as filled with real people and real incident, as the stories that we remember from when we were children’.

Stardust is such a fairy tale, following the journey of self-discovery of a young man with dual nature, human and fairy, from the village of Wall to the magical land of Faerie, in search of a fallen star. Gifted writer with amazingly creative imagination and a rare talent for recreating the magic, the author unveils a magical, dangerous and strange world where nothing is what it seems to be and anything can happen if you believe.

The story is magical and lyrical and out of this world. There is good and evil, love and hate, greed and generosity, and magic, both black and white. There are ghosts and fairies and evil old crones. It seems to take every fairy tale you ever knew and blend them into one magical story that captivates, enchants, transports and enthrals. But in the classic Gaiman tradition, the ending is not what one would expect.

Live Long and Prosper :)
