Description

Stardust is an enchanting and enthralling novel from Sunday Times bestseller and master storyteller Neil Gaiman. 'Charming in every sense of the word, and deeply satisfying' (Time Out), it will delight fans of Terry Pratchett and J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, as well as those who loved the feature film starring Robert De Niro, Claire Danes, Rupert Everett and Michelle Pfeiffer among others. Life moves at a leisurely pace in the tiny town of Wall - named after the imposing stone barrier which separates the town from a grassy meadow. Here, young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand, Tristran vows to retrieve a fallen star and deliver it to his beloved. It is an oath that sends him over the ancient wall and into a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining . . .
