੻ Best  ✥ Stardust to read ⡺ By Neil Gaiman ⣿ ੻ Best ✥ Stardust to read ⡺ By Neil Gaiman ⣿ Stardust is an utterly charming fairy tale in the tradition of The Princess Bride and The Neverending Story Neil Gaiman, creator of the darkly elegant Sandman comics and author of The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish, tells the story of young Tristran Thorn and his adventures in the land of Faerie 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 called, appropriately, Wall and the Faerie realm No one ever ventures beyond the Wall except to attend an enchanted flea market that is held every nine years and during which, unbeknownst to him, Tristran was conceived But Tristran bravely sets out to fetch the fallen star and thus win the hand of his love His adventures in the magical land will keep you turning pages as fast as you can he and the star escape evil old witches, deadly clutching trees, goblin press gangs, and the scheming sons of the dead Lord of Stormhold The story is by turns thrillingly scary and very funny You ll love goofy, earnest Tristran and the talking animals, gnomes, magic trees, and other irresistible denizens of Faerie that he encounters in his travels Stardust is a perfect read aloud book, a brand new fairy tale you ll want to share with a kid, or maybe hoard for yourself If you read it to kids, watch out for a couple of spicy sex bits and one epithet Therese LittletonStarred Review Tristran Thorn falls in love with the prettiest girl in town and makes her a foolish promise he says that he ll go find the falling star they both watched streak across the night sky She says she ll marry him if he finds it, so he sets off, leaving his home of Wall, and heads out into the perilous land of faerie, where not everything is what it appears Gaiman is known for his fanciful wit, sterling prose and wildly imaginative plots, and Stardust is no exception Gaiman s silver tongued narration vividly brings this production to life Like the bards of old, Gaiman is equally proficient at telling tales as he is at writing them, and his pleasant British accent feels like a perfect match to the material Gaiman s performance is an extraordinary achievementif only all authors could read their own work so well The audiobook also includes a brief, informative and enjoyable interview with Gaiman about the writing of the novel and his work in the audiobook studio Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved Stardust IMDb In a
