I should clap my hands and whisper “I believe!” because I’ve just finished reading Neil Gaiman’s STARDUST and it completely carried me away to the realm of Faerie. It was a lot of fun, an enjoyable tale, and left me feeling like I’d been dusted with Faerie glitter…star dust…and that anything magical could happen at any moment. The movie will be out in August, but I suggest you read the book before seeing it, because the book is just perfect, the story very well told, and the illustrations are gorgeous. Then to continue the fun, visit the STARDUST movie website and watch the trailer. Read an interview with Neil Gaiman and illustrator, Charles Vess, where they talk about how the book came to be. Then visit the Gaiman and Vess websites, and finally, listen to some of the magical music of Ilan Eshkeri who is doing the score. Then you, too, will be under an enchantment!
This was my first book in the Once Upon a Time challenge. For those of you participating in the challenge, if you haven’t already read this book or chosen it for your Quest, you must add it to your queue. It’s a fast and thoroughly enjoyable read!
