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 oversized hardcover edition of STARDUST allows the breathtaking art of Charles Vess to be seen in its finest presentation, and ties in to the film version of STARDUST, coming in May 2007.

5.0 Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Incredible.I was there. In Wall. Watching this story unfold from the sidelines.At least that is how I felt. Like I was in the moment. Scary, exciting moment that is was. And by moment, I mean book.Faeries, witches, and even things you can't explain, became an essential element to the fantasy. This w...

5.0 Stardust ★★★★★
Stardust is a wonderful little fairy tale of a story. It has magic spells and evil witches and falling stars and captive nymphs and an ordinary, well-meaning, naïve boy who goes on a quest for true love. Best of all, this audiobook is read by Neil Gaiman himself, and he is my absolute favorite for a...
