Resolved Question: Has anyone read Stardust
I have to write a paper on this novel. Well, actually, I have to write a letter to St. Peter as though I was Tristran Thorn and ask him to allow me into heaven. I have to include significant events in the novel and justify my actions so I can prove my understanding of the story. So does anyone have any idea of a few events I can cover? And any advice on what to write?? I have to write in his language which is also pretty complicated so I'm having a hard time figuring out anything to say.
Thanks so much!:)
