Stardust

I recently completed the Audiobook version of Stardust by Neil Gaiman.

It was very enjoyable, especially the loving narration by Mr. Gaiman himself. I saw the film version several weeks ago and I think the story has been improved for the film, though the differences and slight twists in the novel kept me interested and had a charm all their own.

Gaiman's stories are sometimes a bit tedious to me. In American Gods, I kept hoping for some action. But the ideas, characters and language are always interesting. Stardust was a richer fantasy experience. At 6+hours, it is a fairly brief audiobook and well worth a listen at audible.com.
