Consiglio vivamente l'acquisto e la lettura
But once he enters Faerie, strange things begin to happen.
Tristran knows the location of every place in the land. He meets a strange, small man who gives him a candle that allows him to travel great distances. And when he finally finds the fallen star, Tristran discovers that it is not a lump of rock like he thought, but a young woman, who has quite the mind of her own.
Tristran, though, isn't the only one looking for the star. The witch queen and a group of three brothers all want something of it. For these brothers, it's the power she possesses. For the witch, it's her heart.
STARDUST was completely entrancing, charming, and a surprisingly quick read. The star's spunk and Tristran's humanity are both to be admired in this adventurous tale that will make you laugh out loud and break into tears. This is one book not to be missed.

I don’t know how to express what I’m feeling now that I’ve finished Stardust.
The writing style is very fanciful, I honestly don’t know how else to explain it. Sometimes the descriptions were so incredible I stopped to read them a few times, but that style carried over into every aspect of the book and in some cases it felt like it took too long for the author to get through a very short scene.
Despite the fact that it felt drawn out I wanted to keep reading. I’m completely torn because I kind of loved it but I also kind of didn’t.
Brilliantly written and a nice wee twist 😉
I much prefer the emotion in the film and as much as i liked the book it is painfully emotionless.
The star and Tristran just seem to suddenly decide to be together, you just have to imagine that they built up a relationship with no help from the author. Whereas the film uses their time on the air ship to bring the characters together.
And although i do like the peaceful ending with the 'evil' witch, it did seem a little rushed and unsatisfying. And again, a huge lack of emotion. A total disregard for his newly discovered mother and his father left behind the wall.
Rarely do I ever say a film is better than its novel, but in this case it's simple true. I loved the magic in the film. So much that i named my son Trystan. Anyway, book or film, this is a story that has touched my heart and the most enjoyable fairytale ive discovered :) x
There were things that bothered me, and the main reason I gave 4 stars and not 5, the book isn't all that long, I felt like the characters had more to tell, but then, my imagination is still thinking about them 2 days on, so maybe that's the intention, who knows. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would definitely recommend it to any, particularly those that enjoy fantasy.
