Stardust: A Novel

Stardust - Joseph Kanon I'm not going to write much, just that I really enjoyed this book. Its biggest flaw is that on occasion it loses me, most often in the dialogue, but it quickly gets back on track.

The ending is a complete surprise; the characters are likable, I think where they're supposed to be - the setting is great, old Hollywood very well done (from my limited perspective; I watch old movies fairly regularly but not tons of them). I guess perhaps the mystery around Daniel's death gets a little lost -- but overall a very, very good book.
