Catch a fallen star . . .
Tristran Thorn promised to bring back a fallen star. So he sets out on a journey to fulfill the request of his beloved, the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester—and stumbles into the enchanted realm that lies beyond the wall of his English country town. Rich with adventure and magic, Stardust is one of master storyteller Neil Gaiman's most beloved tales, and the inspiration for the hit movie.

He makes things up and writes them down. Which takes us from comics, (like SANDMAN) to novels, (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories, (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies, (like Dave McKean's MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or his own short film, A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).
In his spare time he reads, sleep, eats and tries to keep the blog at www.neilgaiman.com more or less up to date.

REVIEW:
Incredible.
I was there. In Wall. Watching this story unfold from the sidelines.
At least that is how I felt. Like I was in the moment. Scary, exciting moment that is was. And by moment, I mean book.
Faeries, witches, and even things you can't explain, became an essential element to the fantasy. This world. The politics. The characters. All were strong. 
Neil Gaiman is a master storyteller, in my opinion. He knows how to put you there. Even in something you could never otherwise fathom. He brings strong characters to you, with a plot that has you digging in deep. Then he ties it up at the end with a perfect cherry on top. I can't wait to read more from him!
I also plan on watching the film adaption soon. I know I have seen it before, but it might be different for me this time around having read the book.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
