From The TBR Pile Review: Stardust
From multi award-winning creator of "The Sandman", Neil Gaiman, comes the incredible work that broke new ground in graphic novel storytelling, re-issued in a deluxe hardback edition with a new cover and eight additional pages of bonus material. Together with acclaimed artist Charles Vess, Gaiman returns to the realm of Faerie for a lavishly illustrated tale of an ancient world where magic and humanity mingle in extraordinary ways. Gaiman's exquisitely crafted text and Vess' breathtaking illustrations combine to create a novel with pictures, an adult fairy tale that plunges the reader into the very heart of an enchanting magical land. Tying in with the release of the film, this is your chance to own a piece of "Stardust"!
Not on my TBR pile for long I started this book and then wondered off for a bit because I am trying to read all the new Star Wars cannon stuff and then wondered back because that stuff pulls on the heart strings a little too much.
The more Gaiman I read the more I fall in love with his writing, it's fun, it's silly and it just moves along at a decent clip which I enjoy in a book. This was an especially beautiful story for me, a quite interesting fairy tale that reminded me of other, interesting things that I have read over the years.
Tristen's journey to fetch a fallen star to claim his beloved's hand in marriage is a wonderful tale and I enjoyed reading it a great deal. Now I must seek out the movie as it sound tantalizingly interesting.
