Stardust ~ Neil Gaiman


Pretty much sums up this fairytale for adults by Neil Gaiman.

Dunstan Thorn could not have predicted the events set in motion when he crosses the wall to visit the Faerie Market to purchase a gift for his intended, Daisy, certainly not that he would fall in love with a gypsy slave girl, and that the result of that union, his son, Tristan, would set out years later, to collect a fallen star for his own beloved, the cold hearted Victoria Forester.

Tristan, soon discovers that there is more to the star than he first thought. It is in fact a decidedly cranky young woman called Yvaine, is not best pleased to meet Tristan or learn of his plans. During his journey there and back he meets friends and foes alike.

As Tristan and Yvaine make through their way back to the Wall, and the life Tristan believes he wants, they must negotiate the dangers placed in their way.

This, is Gaiman weaving his magic once more, delivering a simple, humorous and yet nuanced tale, that is well worth investing your time in.
