Neil Gaiman has the knack of writing the most heartbreakingly beautiful stories. I've just finished re-reading Stardust, and after reading the ending, my heart felt close to bursting and I had to swallow hard to keep the tears from falling from my eyes. There is just something magical about his writing; he can make even the most prosaic seem absolutely wondrous.

I've been told Stardust's been made into a movie. After re-reading the book, I can't see how anyone could ever do justice to Gaiman's magnificent work of fantasy.
