Publisher's Summary

In the sleepy English countryside of decades past, there is a town that has stood on a jut of granite for 600 years. And immediately to the east stands a high stone wall, for which the village is named. Here in the town of Wall, Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester. One crisp October night, as they watch, a star falls from the sky, and Victoria promises to marry Tristran if he'll retrieve the star and bring it back for her. It is this promise that sends Tristran through the only gap in the wall, across the meadow, and into the most unforgettable adventure of his life.

What the critics say

"Eminently readable, a charming piece of work." (Washington Post)
"An original and well-written fairy tale....This is a refreshingly creative story with appealing characters." (Library Journal)
"The resolution is satisfying and complex, proving that there is more to fairy tales than 'happily ever after'." (School Library Journal)

Excellent Performance

I watched the movie but something was lost in that translation.

Didn’t realize they were walking into faery (sorry if not spelled right) love comparing movies to audiobooks, the books have so much more details and usually a few more characters.

Would be interesting to hear stories from their travels to stronghold.

Neil Gaiman never disappoints

I have loved every book I’ve ever read by Neil Gaiman, and this is no exception. The fact that he was the narrator makes it infinitely better!

So beautiful

I wonder why I waited till now to listen to this beautiful book. Neil Gaiman’s voice is versatile and like very good chocolate.
