Books read in 2015 – 3. Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Stardust – Neil Gaiman,
1998 (Kindle Edition 2010)

I re-read this to try and make up for the disappointment of the 2 previous books I’ve read so far this year. It worked.

This is such a great story. A romantic, coming of age, adventure fairy-tale. It taps into the old stories and legends – and twists them as only Mr Gaiman can.

This is almost one of those the-film-is-better-than-the-book books… almost. The differences in the two stories make them equally wonderful. The book has more depth but the film has Robert De Niro – and a better ending (IMO).

This is an excellent book which has wiped my mind clear of disappointment and filled it with wonder and a warm glow instead.
