I bought this book under the praise and adulation that Gaiman seems to get from...well...everyone.
In reality, the book was poorly written, a little boring, and very confusing. I was under the impression it was for YA or kids, but yet had multiple instances of profanity, semi-graphic sex scenes, and some brutal violence.
In the end, I kept reading because I bought a hard copy and because it was short, but was extremely underwhelmed and a bit disappointed. I'll give some of his other, longer works a try, but Stardust fell very short for me.
