Editorial Reviews

“Eminently readable—a charming piece of work.” Washington Post Book World
“A twisting, wondrous tale full of magic.” Chicago Tribune
“Marvelous adventures...magical and fun.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Strange...marvelous...Stardust takes us back to a time when the world was more magical, and, real or not, that world is a charming place. Philadelphia Inquirer
“Thrilling...Stardust reads like a mix between L. Frank Baum, the Brothers Grimm, and a Tim Burton movie script.” Dallas Morning News
“[A] tale about love, danger, friendship, magic, and adventure...A short novel that delivers big-time satisfaction.” Detroit Free Press
“A wonderful novel...A pleasure to read.” Denver Post
“His finest work yet...Sometimes sparse, sometimes witty, often lyrical...prose as smooth as twelve-year-old scotch.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Beautiful, memorable...A book full of marvels.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Gaiman is known for his fanciful wit, sterling prose, and wildly imaginative plots, and Stardust is no exception. Gaiman’s silver-tongued narration vividly brings this production to life. Like the bards of old, Gaiman is equally proficient at telling tales as he is at writing them, and his pleasant British accent feels like a perfect match to the material. Gaiman’s performance is an extraordinary achievement—if only all authors could read their own work so well.” Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)
“A charming comic romance.” Dayton Daily News
“An utterly charming fairy tale...Stardust is a perfect read-aloud book, a brand-new fairy tale you’ll want to share with a kid, or maybe hoard for yourself.” Amazon.com editorial review
“Gaiman captures the magic and ethereality of his own work with a light touch and tender tone...One senses the book flowing through his voice and his pen, as though he were telling it for the first time in this performance. The effect works perfectly.” AudioFile
“Sparkling, fresh, and charming. Superb.” Booklist
“An original and well-written fairy tale.” Library Journal
“An old-fashioned fairy tale full of mythic images, magic, and lyrical passages...Satisfying and complex.” School Library Journal
“A deftly written fantasy adventure tale...There are dozens of fantasy writers around reshaping traditional stories, but none with anything like Gaiman’s distinctive wit, warmth, and narrative energy. Wonderful stuff.” Kirkus Reviews
