This is one of those short beautiful books that, while it didn’t make itself impossible to put down, has certainly left its mark upon me. Simple and well-written, Stardust is a reminder of everything a story is and all a story needs to be. I find myself with so little to say about it. It is neither slow, nor boring, but nor is it the most amazing thing I’ve ever read. It is charming and joyful and full of character, a story about a boy born in the wrong place whose journey to find himself will make you smile.
It defies star ratings. It is above that, as though it isn’t even trying to compete with other books as it is so far superior in purpose. Stardust doesn’t try to shock you or frighten you or make you cry, it just seeks to entertain in the most beautiful way it can.
Just read it 🙂
