Stardust :: Neil Gaiman


I decided to read Stardust after I saw the movie, which always kinds of screws with you. I was surprised to find that the movie and the book are actually kind of different, even though the basic premise is the same. I actually liked that. This is a fun, easy read (especially good to follow a depressing read with, like I did). I mean, who doesn't love a journey for Heart's Desire, witches, stars that turn into women, unicorns, etc? Yeah, you're not going to gain any IQ points from it, but neither will you lose any brain cells. I like adult fairy tales like this. They make me happy for all their simplicity and innocence.
I finished this on the beach, so I guess I'll make this a beach read.
