Stardust, by Neil Gaiman. Young Tristran Thorn, having lost his heart to the lovely but cold Victoria Forester, leaves the safe English town of Wall and sets out into a strange world on a quest to retrieve a fallen star he has promised to his beloved.
Today I had a drive to do and listened to the audio version of Neil Gaiman's M IS FOR MAGIC. You want to LISTEN to this book, read of course by Gaiman. So far my fave is "The case of the Four and Twenty Blackbirds" which makes you think Gaiman and Fforde were twins separated at birth. It made me laugh out loud and frankly I was not in a good mood when I started listening.
