This week’s book recommendation is Stardust by Neil Gaiman. I wrote a post a long time ago about authors and characters and the focus eventually focused on Mr. Gaiman. You can find it here if you like. But back to the book. This book is good. I greatly enjoyed it, but I have to admit that I liked the movie even better. With a stellar cast (no pun intended….maybe) and Neil’s added influence, it is a fun time. Robert DeNiro is hilarious. I recommend both the book and the movie, and I think whichever you go with first might be the one you prefer. The book isn’t that long so it’d be a quick read.
Neil’s written a lot of books and many have been adapted into film. I have a feeling most of you have already read (or seen) at least one of his works. If not, then you’ve just been introduced to a plethora of great stories. Thank me later. He has short stories, novellas, books, comic books (his Sandman comics have a large following), etc. He even reads his own books if you like audio books. He is also a great guy in general and I hope I meet him one day. I could go on, but this is a book recommendation and not (purposely) an author recommendation (even though they are pretty much the same). Happy reading.
