Those are the two books on your 2009 list that I've read too. What did you think of them?


message 15: by Kristina (new)

Kristina (klonk) I really liked Stardust. It was an easy, light, fun and interesting. But wasn't very impressed by Anna Gavalda this time. I didn't like this book of short stories all that much. How did you like them, Lioba?

Hey Kicki,

I did like Stardust but not as much as I'd hoped. The movie was better, I think. I do like Neil Gaiman a lot though, from what I've read by him so far.

Same as you, I was disappointed by the collection of short stories by Anna Gavalda. I loved her Hunting and Gathering so much I thought this book would at least be 4 stars but it wasn't. Some stories were good, some were only ok. But I'm not a big fan of short stories in general.
