Customer reviews

Having read Good Omens and being impressed, I was disappointed with Smoke and Mirrors in places, BUT Stardust lifted my spirits again. His characters are believable (even the dead ones), his style of writing lets the eye flow over the words, leaving your imagination to paint its own images. A story well structured, well told and grounded in enough reality to maintain the interest of non sci-fi/fantasy readers. Stardust has been made into a film (sadly the film never lives up to the book), so read this before a film spoils it! I really really enjoyed this book, I have not read Anasi Boys (yet) so I can not compare it, but on its own it stands up well. What have you got to lose? This may help you find your heart's more

Boy goes on quest to prove to girl that he is worthy. The story has a somewhat standard beginning but is far from ordinary. Another fantastic book from a master storyteller. Life is the journey not the destination and so it is with this book. This is a wonderful journey that holds your attention and draws you into the world that Neil Gaiman has created. Highly more
