for the first time ever i am reading a neil gaiman novel. i have previously studied + read two of his other books (wolves in the walls + coraline) which were good but do not compare to the one i am reading now - stardust.
the movie adaptation is one of my most favourite films, mainly because of claire danes being her usual amazing, beautiful self.
i only started the book the other night + already i've nearly finished. it is such a wonderful confection of imagination + colourful worlds, strung in a narrative like an arrangement of whimsical beads. i shall post a full review when i have (unfortunately) finished reading it.
