bookshelves: fantasy, re-read

I re-read Stardust for this month's bookclub meeting - the first fantasy novel we've managed to have for bookclub! A very exciting moment.

Stardust is a very sweet little fairy tale for adults - more complex than your usual fairy tale, but with the same style. I'm sure you know the plot - Tristran, a romantic young man, heads off into the land of Faerie to collect a fallen star for the young woman he's fallen in love with. Except Faerie is rather a dangerous place, the fallen star isn't what he was expecting, and Tristran himself begins to change. It's a lovely coming of age tale, and the descriptions of the Faerie marketplace are one of my favourite things ever.
