Neil Gaiman’s Stardust was a really, really good book. I picked it up after seeing the movie, and I’m glad I did. The further in to the book I got the more it diverged from the movie (or actually the more the movie diverged from the book). But that’s ok because both were entertaining in their own ways. I have to say that I liked the book’s ending a lot, it was definitely poetic. While the book is technically classified as young adult, some salty language is used and there are some sexual situations, so use your best judgement if you’re giving it to someone’s kid.
