Book: Stardust
Author: Neil Gaiman

Review: Tristan, an English young man (half human, half fae) tries to win his heart's desire by going to a mystical realm to retrieve a fallen star. The fallen star turns out to be a young woman and he is not the only one after her. They quickly find themselves on a journey involving unicorns, witches, and elf lords.

There was an ethereal quality to this book that I loved. It was beautiful to read. I was able to visualize the world Gaiman created vividly and couldn't put it down. The characters themselves were rather one dimensional (Tristan was a naive nice guy, the Star had little personality, the conclusion of the witch was disappointing)  but I still loved the writing. 

Overall, a surprisingly beautiful read. 

Grade: 4.5/5
