Book Report -Stardust

They've made a film as well, which I have seen and also adore, but the original is always better, I'd say.

At first the same book in Japanese translation was handed to me to try, but knowing that the words and phrases were all veiled, I just could not get into it for the life of me. So I honestly yet apologetically expressed my problem in reading a translated version of an English novel, which disappoined the owner of the book a little. Then a couple of weeks later, the original version was delivered and given to me. I cannot express enough how much I adore the gift. Thank you, T!

Had I read this book a few years ago, I would have not liked it as much, if at all. I would have probably not finished this book, or even worse started it. The whole idea of a fairy tale made for adults was something I would shrug off just as well as I would, say, a romantic comedy starred by J Lo.

So, for those of you readers who do not buy into romanticism or idealism in literature, this book should stay as far away from your bookshelf as a galaxy (you can take the very title quite literally, really). Those of you whose heart, or a piece of it, still remains alive in the mind of a child, dig in!

Until next time,
