Now a major motion picture—this charming fairy tale by the #1 New York Times bestselling author, weaves a magical story set long ago in the tiny English village of Wall, a place where things are not quite what they seem.

Go and catch a falling star . . .

Tristran Thorn promises to bring back a fallen star for his beloved, the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester—and crosses the wall that divides his English country town from another, more dangerous world of lords and witches, all of them in search of the star. Rich with adventure and magic, Stardust is one of master storyteller Neil Gaiman's most beloved tales.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Conflicting opinions Okay, so I'm conflicted. On one hand I really admire this book, but on the other hand, I didn't exactly like it. The premise is great, and the writing is beautiful, but there was something about the story's sequence of events I just couldn't bring myself to love. For such a small book, it took me way too long to get through, as I just couldn't bring myself to pick it up and read for an extended period of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I really enjoyed this book. They market it as a fairy-tale for adults, and it has alot of adventure for how many pages are in the book.With fairy magic almost anything is possible. This author has a different writing style than I'm used to but I still enjoyed it, I will be checking out other books from this author now. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this Really, really loved this book. I wasn't sure what to expect because I actually didn't enjoy the movie and had put off reading the book for a few years. Neil Gaiman is an amazing storyteller. The world of Faerie in this book is intricate and full of so many interesting little characters. The protagonist really grew on me. There are several mini storylines that converge into one and I love how it all comes together. Really great fantasy read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Honestly amazing. I didn't actually like the movie so had avoided reading this for a while, but love Neil Gaiman and this was one of the only books I haven't read of his. I'm so glad I did. The book definitely trumped the movie. Loved the protagonist and loved the intricate world that Gaiman built. All the side characters were great and didn't retract from the story. Also got this with Anansi Boys on sale (2 for $15) which was a steal. It's a great travel-sized book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very entertaining! You get what you bargain for with this book; it's described as a fairytale for adults and that's exactly what it is. Clever, funny, and very entertaining. I couldn't put it down and finished it in less than a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGICAL First Neil Gaiman book and I never knew how much I would really love this. I love fantasy but this is different, in a way, and I loved every single moment of it. After I had finished reading the last page I knew that I would be rereading it in the future and I laid on my bed, staring at the ceiling for who knows how long, just amazed at the story I just read. I never watched the movie adaptation of this book but I doubt I would watch it very soon. I just like how it already played out in my head. IT WAS SO. GOOD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful new sort of fairytale There's definitely something magical about the way Gaiman builds his world. You feel so immersed and this is no exception. Tristran is a wonderful character - albeit a little naive, but it's rather endearing - and his quest to impress Victoria is what sets up the beginning of a wonderful adventure. I wouldn't say this is a book for kids because there is violence and sex described, but a great fantasy novel for YA readers that want to dive into this wonderful world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fun, easy read This is how you write a modern fairy tale. The plot is fun and moves fast. Sometimes, the sequence of events and their justification are a bit clunky, but no more than any traditional fairy tale. It fun and easy to read.
