Stardust by Neil Gaiman (audio)

I listened to this while driving to and from Austin. It made the drive, which is usually such a beat down, seem short.

I really like that the book is read by the author because no one understands the characters of a book better than the author.

This is considered a fairy tale for adults. A young man goes off in search of a fallen star in hopes of winning the hand of the woman he loves. But along the way he learns many things about life and love.

There are several different storylines. Tristan isn't the only person seeking the fallen star. In the end the different storylines all mingle together as the characters try to claim the star.

It's a nice story. I do recommend it, this audio version in particular.

I also highly recommend the movie version of this story that recently came out.

Finished listening: June 12, 2007
