What would you do to win the love of your life’s heart? Would you travel to the edge of the earth to prove you, love? Would you do to catch a fallen star? Well in this week’s book review I talk about a book that combines fantasy, magic, and adventure all in one story. This week I will be discussing the book Stardust by Neil Gaiman which also has a movie. But since this is a book review we will focus on that.
The book Stardust on a boy named Tristan Thorn who lives in small England town that is surrounded by a wall. This wall keeps everything on the other side away. In the story Tristan is in love with a woman named Victoria Forester who pretty doesn’t think much of him and that he is a store merchant boy. One day Tristan who working in the store is visited by Victoria looking for ingredients to make rice pudding. Tristan asked to work her home after work. She luckily agrees and after work, they both walk home. On the way home, they take a walk to a hill looking down at the city. Watching the stars they are. Tristan there confesses his love to Victoria and tells her that he will do anything to marry her and get a kiss. Victoria laughs until she spots a beautiful shooting star sailing through the sky. Victoria wants the star. Tristan tells her that he will get for her if she wants. Victoria smiles and makes a deal that if Tristan goes to get the star and brings it back she will marry him and will kiss him. Tristan decides to do and sets off on a magical adventure to get the fallen star. On his journey into the world of Fairy learns that the world has more magic and adventure than he experienced.
Stardust is filled with adventure, witches, unicorns, and magic. The story also is a quest type of story and if you are some that love that type of thing and wish to tag along it’s for you. Stardust got to be one of my favorites from Neil Gaiman and I probably read it again and again because it’s so good. I also love the element of magically creatures the story and the way it’s written. I totally recommend checking out and reading it yourself as well… Until my next book review keep on reading.
