Neil Gaiman, one of the premier writers in the field, presents Stardust,
a fascinating and engaging new fantasy-tale extravaganza about the
heart's desire of a young man and his eventual travels throughout the
world of Faerie. In the tradition of Neverwhere, Gaiman twines
threads of several plotlines deftly together to form a fairy tale of
fellowship, passion, and humanity's place in an always unpredictable
and continuously changing magical world.
About The Author
Novelist Neil Gaiman has sent a British businessman tumbling into a fantastic underworld and had a devil and angel comically conspiring to thwart the Apocalypse. He found his biggest success, though, in Death, Dreams and Destruction -- and the four other similarly named siblings who controlled the reins of the human race's emotional impulses in his graphic-novel series The Sandman, a wholesale rejuvenation of graphic fiction that had everyone from Tori Amos to Norman Mailer spinning with, yes, Delirium.

I bought this book because I loved the movie. I was disappointed as the book could have been written much better.
