really liked it
Read from August 27 to September 01, 2011

I'm kind of on a Neil Gaiman kick right now, just getting to know him as an author. I was familiar with the basic stroy of Stardust, having watched the movie a couple of years ago.

Gaimen tends to follow an adventure in another world type of storyline that I find charming. Part magic, part adventure, heroic peril ridden main chacter and evil pursuing villain. Stardust didn't disappoint and I found the story enthralling. The ending is different from the movie, the movie taking the Disney approach of the villain getting their just desserts and the heroines living perfectly ever after. I think I may have liked the book better.

Worth the read, a quick engaging magical tale. Next up on the Gaiman list, Coraline!
