Stardust...

Just finished watching Stardust with the boys, and it kept us all riveted. I loved all the little details:

The snowdrop flower, the goat-man, the ghosts of the 'slaughtered prince' brothers...

And how it was all framed by the world outside of Stormhold.

Lovely, just lovely. Two thumbs heartily up!

It reminded me a great deal of my beloved Princess Bride, which, after many, many viewings, and a mention on Diana Peterfreund's blog, I finally read the book. And of course I enjoyed it very much. So...it was a natural inclination for me to hustle into the office the minute the movie was over to place a library hold on Stardust, the book. I'm excited!

I've never seen Stardust, but will have to put it on my hold list at the library. Thanks for the tip.
