At a time like this, I just need to escape into a good story. Luckily, Neil Gaiman has wonderful stories to tell, such as his fairy tale for adults, Stardust. Everything you want in a fairy tale - a young man on a quest, magic, hidden love, evil witches, enchantment, humor - a perfect place to hide for a few days. I listened to the audiobook (anything that Neil Gaiman narrates is terrific - his voice is spot on) and at the end there was an interview with the author. That's when I found out there was a novel, a graphic novel and a movie! And to make this an absolutely perfect book for right now, it was partly based on a shooting star that he saw while out in the Tucson desert. For this librarian, I take some comfort in that.

Check it out at the PCPL library.
