Reasons Gaiman is Awesome

by Charlotte Reads Classics

“There was a moment of hesitation, and then her mouth opened against his, and her tongue slid into his mouth, and he was, under the strange stars, utterly, irrevocably, lost.”

“Few of us have seen the stars as folk saw them then – our cities and towns cast too much light into the night – but from the village of Wall, the stars were laid out like worlds or like ideas, uncountable as the trees in a forest or the leaves on a tree.”

“She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars.”

Neil Gaiman, Stardust
