Stardust – Neil Gaiman

stardust

One fateful night, Tristran promises his beloved that he will retrieve a fallen star for her from beyond the Wall that stands between their rural English town and the Faerie realm. No one ever ventures beyond the Wall except to attend an enchanted flea market that is held every nine years. But Tristran bravely sets out to fetch the fallen star and thus win the hand of his love. He and the star, embodied in the shape of a pretty woman, escape evil old witches, deadly clutching trees, goblin press-gangs, and the scheming sons of the dead Lord of Stormhold.

Though this story is a neat idea, and the characters seemed to follow an interesting path, the language the author uses in this book is actually very difficult. If you have trouble with Shakespeare, you may want to avoid this book. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
