Para ganar el corazon de tu amada, nada mas sencillo que adentrarte en el mundo secreto y prohibido de las hadas e ir en busca... de una estrella.
English: In the tranquil fields and meadows of long-ago England, there is a small hamlet that has stood on a jut of granite for 600 years. Just to the east stands a high stone wall, for which the village is named. Here, in the hamlet of Wall, young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester. And here, one crisp October eve, Tristran makes his love a promise -- an impetuous vow that will send him through the only breach in the wall, across the pasture...and into the most exhilarating adventure of his life.

Stardust received starred reviews from Booklist, Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, and critical acclaim from many other widely read publications, such as The Washington Post and Chicago Tribune.
"Neil Gaiman es una caja de sorpresas, y tenemos suerte de tenerle en nuestro medio. Se fecundidad, unida a la calidad general de su trabajo, es maravillosa a la vez que intimidadora." –Stephen King
"Es un maestro. Nadie en su campo es mejor que el." –Peter Straub
"Gaiman es una estrella. Construye historias como un cocinero demente podria crear un pastel de bodas, poniendo capa sobre capa, incluyendo todo tipo de dulces, y amargos, en la mezcla. " –Clive Barker
"Eminently readable—a charming piece of work." –Washington Post Book World
"A beautiful, memorable work." –Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Strange...marvelous...magical." –Philadelphia Inquirer
"A twisting, wondrous tale full of magic." –Chicago Tribune
"His finest work yet...Sometimes sparse, sometimes witty, often lyrical...prose as smooth as 12-year-old scotch." –St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"A pleasure to read." –Denver Post
"A charming comic romance...Gaiman is a storytelling titan whose range, like his imagination, knows no bounds." –Dayton Daily News
"Marvelous...a tumble of adventures...as comfortable and familiar as a mug of hot cider on a blustery winter night." –Cleveland Plain Dealer
"The multitalented author of The Sandman graphic novels and last year's Neverwhere charms again, with a deftly written fantasy adventure tale set in early Victorian England and enriched by familiar folk materials. There are dozens of fantasy writers around reshaping traditional stories, but none with anything like Gaiman's distinctive wit, warmth, and narrative energy. Wonderful stuff, for kids of all ages." –Kirkus Reviews
"Stardust is a beautifully written fairy tale for adults (and precocious children) which will refresh even the most deflated sense of wonder. It's a shimmering, shining, iridescent treasure for readers to cherish." –Paula Guran, Event Horizon
"Gaiman gently borrows from many fine fantasists--for starters, from Andersen, Tolkien, Macdonald, and, for the framing device, Christina Rossetti in her "Goblin Market" --but produces something sparkling, fresh, and charming. . ." –Booklist
"For more than a decade, Gaiman has been helping readers grapple with reality by offering fantastic worlds in visionary graphic novels like The Sandman, occasional short stories and his bestselling first prose novel, Neverwhere. Here, Gaiman extends his range by offering a novel-length fairy tale, one that abounds in wonder and lessons. This novel is at once a magical adventure, a charming love story and a fable about attaining one's heart's desire which, in Gaiman's world, is seldom what one thinks it to be. Grounding his narrative in mythic tradition, Gaiman employs exquisitely rich language, natural wisdom, good humor and a dash of darkness to conjure up a fairy tale in the grand tradition." –Publisher’s Weekly
"YA. An old-fashioned fairy tale full of mythic images, magic, and lyrical passages. While the bones of the story--the hero, the quest, the maiden are traditional, Gaiman offers a tale that is fresh and original. Though the plot begins with disparate threads, by the end they are all tied together and the picture is complete. The resolution is satisfying and complex, proving that there is more to fairy tales than ‘happily ever after.’" –School Library Journal "Gaiman, author of Neverwhere (LJ 6/15/97) and the graphic novel series The Sandman, has created an original and well-written fairy tale. This is a refreshingly creative story with appealing characters that manages to put a new twist on traditional fairy-tale themes. Appropriate for almost any age and a good bet for the medium-to-large public library." –Library Journal
