Life moves at a leisurely pace in the tiny town of Wall—named after the imposing stone barrier which separates the town from a grassy meadow. Here, young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand, Tristran vows to retrieve a fallen star and deliver it to his beloved. It is an oath that sends him over the ancient wall and into a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining...
This was a quite enjoyable fairytale about a man who goes into the land of Fairy searching for a fallen star to bring back to the woman he loves. It had a somewhat slow start, but after that I felt pretty engrossed in the book the entire time. The story actually had a pretty good plot and world building. I thought the ending was a bit anti-climatic in regards to the book’s main villain, but otherwise, it was a wonderful book. I particularly enjoyed Mr. Gaiman’s narration and you could tell he had a lot of passion and love for the book.
