I suppose I should start by admitting that Neil Gaiman and I are never on the same page, no matter what book I have open before me.

Be that as it may, _Stardust_ is innovative in its particulars but dull and predictable in its overall plot arc and themes. The characters are fine, but not sparkling. _Stardust_ is an easy read, but not one that will stay with you.
