Author: Neil Gaiman
Year of Publication: 1999
Outline: Tristran Thorn, a young man, is about to start the most peculiar journey of his life, an adventure that will completely change his views about life and love. It all starts when Victoria Forester, the girl that many of the boys in the village where in love with, challenged Tristran by telling him that if he brought back to her the falling star they saw, she would do anything he asked for. This was the beginning of Tristan’s journey. When he finds the star, he also finds out a big truth, she is not a stone, she is a woman. This does not stop him from making the star come with him back all the way to the town of Wall.
Characters: This book has many characters, witches, princes, ghosts… This world that Tristran enters on his journey to find the star is filled with interesting characters, with different attributes. It is truly pleasant to read of characters that make their own choices according to their background and knowledge.
Overall feel: Overall this book was nice to read. It was not too long and therefore it went by fast. The one thing I did not enjoy was that, although it was very detailed in the beginning and middle (sometimes even boring), in the ending, it was not. The ending of this book could have been splendid if it were a little more detailed. Overall it is a nice read for when you simply want to relax, it is not very fast paced and therefore, it is easy to follow even when you are tired.
