In the sleepy English countryside at the dawn of the Victorian Era, young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to beautiful Victoria Forester. But Victoria is cold and distant -- as distant, in fact, as the star she and Tristran see fall from the sky on a crisp October evening. For the coveted prize of Victoria's hand, Tristran vows to retrieve the fallen star and deliver it to his beloved. It is an oath that sends the lovelorn swain into a world that is strange beyond imagining, a world populated by evil old witches, deadly clutching trees, and goblin press-gangs -- a world redeemed only by true love. This trade paperback edition of STARDUST is timed to tie in to the Paramount Pictures movie starring Clair Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert DeNiro.

The point of these quick takes post to catch up on my "To Write About" stack—emphasizing pithiness, not thoroughness.

4.0 Stardust by Neil Gaiman (Audiobook)
Narrated by Neil Gaimain I liked this better as an audiobook. I'm not sure whether it's the format or just the reread but the stuff that puzzled me the first time around made more sense this time.

2.0 The Movie Was Better
I kind of fell down a rabbit hole and finally peeked out. I finished this up the other day and promptly forgot about it. Sorry to say, but the movie was indeed better when reading the source material to the movie "Stardust." I like the idea of an adult fairy tale, but man, this was not for me at all...

5.0 Stardust - Neil Gaiman
Delightful. And the rare case where watching the movie made the book feel even richer.
