Stardust or Twilight Zone?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stardust (Paperback)
Having read Good Omens and being impressed, I was disappointed with Smoke and Mirrors in places, BUT Stardust lifted my spirits again. His characters are believable (even the dead ones), his style of writing lets the eye flow over the words, leaving your imagination to paint its own images. A story well structured, well told and grounded in enough reality to maintain the interest of non sci-fi/fantasy readers. I am pleased to have seen recently that Stardust is to be made into a film (sadly the film never lives up to the book), so read this before a film spoils it - you have until August 2007 by the look of it. I really really enjoyed this book, I have not read Anasi Boys (yet) so I can not compare it, but on its own it stands up well. What have you got to lose? This may help you find your heart's desire.
