Stardust was my first Neil Gaiman book!
I’ve heard of Neil Gaiman forever – and being a lover of quirky, clever books I thought it was about time I tried him out.
I have to say – Stardust was a bloody, unique, adventurous adult fairytale that was quite interesting and very good. I wouldn’t say it was as FANTASTIC as I expected – but that could be partially because of my high expectations.
