A book I read this summer was called Stardust by Neil Gaiman. Stardust is a magical and adventurous story I most definitely enjoyed! I loved the mixture of magic and reality that captures the readers’ imaginations. I recommend this book to anyone who likes some fantasy. The plot of Stardust is a young man named Tristan Thorn promises Victoria Forester, his “true love” that if he passed “The Wall” and bring back the star they both just saw fall from the sky, that Victoria would accept Tristan’s hand in marriage or whatever he desired. Tristan goes on this journey to fetch the star not knowing the star is a girl in the flesh. Tristan conquers and goes through the unimaginable to get back to Victoria, but by the end of the journey he realizes that he practically forgot about Victoria and maybe even his love for her. The story is filled with witches and pirates too! I recommend seeing the movie as well, but like a lot of stories that are transferred on film, the movie leaves out adventures that you would only find in the book. This is one of my favorite stories.
