The Sandman Vol. 2: The Doll's House
The Sandman Vol. 2: The Doll's House | Neil Gaiman, Various
NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision. A being that has existed since the beginning of the universe, Morpheus rules over the realm of dreams. In THE DOLL'S HOUSE, after a decades-long imprisonment, the Sandman has returned to find that a few dreams and nightmares have escaped to reality. Looking to recapture his lost possessions, Morpheus ventures to the human plane only to learn that a woman named Rose Walker has inadvertently become a dream vortex and threatens to rip apart his world. Now as Morpheus takes on the last escaped nightmare at a serial killers convention, the Lord of Dreams must mercilessly murder Rose or risk the destruction of his entire kingdom. Collecting issues #9-16, this new edition of THE DOLL'S HOUSE features the improved production values and coloring from the Absolute Edition.

Rose Walker finds out she has a grandmother she never knew about, and then she starts to look for her king lost brother. On the why she meets many peculiar people and off course the Sandman is lurking in the shadows.

Interesting story so far. The main story was about a girl who is a vortex. Her brother is missing and her grandmother is sick. Dream watches a lot from the sidelines in this one. My favorite story was the man who wouldn't die. Artwork was okay but story was better.

Morpheus, the lord of dreams, is back to his full power. However, a new menace threatens his dream world and all the dreamers‘ safety. Can Morpheus figure out where, and who, this vortex is? An enthralling continuation of the Sandman saga.

Neil Gaiman spares no details as he dives into the dark side of humanity. From humans that will create nightmares to amuse themselves, to the nightmares themselves that use humans for entertainment. It's an adventure into the heart of humanity‘s darkness. I look forward to the second audiobook.

Episode 14: I haven‘t posted about ‘The Sandman‘ in a while but I have been listening to it. It really is a fantastic production. This chapter sees Morpheus confront the last of his lost dreams — the ones that left the Land of Dream during Morpheus‘s imprisonment on Earth — the Corinthian.

Episode 4 sees Morpheus descend into Hell to reclaim his helm from a demon who acquired it from a human. He finds Hell is no longer ruled by Lucifer alone, and must contend with the Triumvirate to find the demon. Gaiman at his best twisting so many theologies into one story.

I'm continuing with the Sandman comics, but I might have to take it slowly because I'd honestly forgotten how grim and gruesome it can be. For some reason I remember it as being dreamy and speculative, but there's a lot of elements of crime, noir and pulp fiction cleverly incorporated into the comics. This volume brings us close to some of the worst of humanity; though, at the same time, Gaiman never loses sense of how people become fucked up.

That was more confusing and less engaging than the first I think. The convention of serial killers was messed up. The roles of Desire and Delirium are not clear to me yet. Some loose connections to the first volume.

Just finished my first Sandman graphic novel (I know, I should have started with the first one but this was the only one at my library and it caught my eye) and absolutely loved it. The artwork, the story, everything. Awesome!

Also finished What Dreams May Come: liked it, not loved as I've seen from other reviews but it was OK. First half had a bit too much afterlife detail for me but glad I stuck with it though, the second half was worth.

claudiuo @BookishMarginalia Both of them count for my #LitsyAtoZ. As always, thank you for keeping track of this challenge for us! (edited) 2y

#5⭐reads2020

Thanks for the tag @Chrissyreadit ! This has been a terrible reading year for me, but I've managed to listen to a bunch of audiobooks and get through several graphic novels. These are my 5 star reads from this year. The full cast Sandman and Northanger Abbey were fantastic, Amanda Palmer is amazing, and I learned that the best way to fight evil necromancers and a zombie horde is with an undead T-rex.

Chrissyreadit Ahhhhh! I must get The Sandman and Northanger Abbey on audio that sounds more than amazing!!! 2y
erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve just heard there is an Icelandic version of Stoker‘s original text, serialised in newspapers in 1900-1901, and endorsed by Stoker himself. It‘s described as surpassing the original, which tends towards the ponderous and reflective. Check it out if interested. 2y

Now this is more what I had in mind when I picked up this series. I couldn't put this one down. I just had to know what happened next.

The brilliance of making people whom fell prey to the Sleepy Sickness part of the main story. That's the kind of thing Gaiman does that blows my mind.

I'm growing really fond of Morpheus as well - and bonding with characters always makes me love stories more.

I was right to have high expectations!

𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙢𝙖𝙣 𝙫𝙤𝙡. 2: 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝘿𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙚 follows a young woman named Rose Walker, who is being carefully watched by Dream. 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝘿𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙚 was creepy, strange and gave me the heebie jeebies and yet I couldn‘t put it down! It was just as good if not better than volume 1. I liked how characters from the first book had important roles in this one. I also liked that we are introduced to Desire and Delirium.

🎧 I thoroughly loved this production!

Adult language & situations! The cast was amazing with Gaiman playing the narrator. It‘s probably different from what you‘re used to listening to. It‘s like a full cast radio play. So yes, each act starts with a short scene then music & the name of the episode. Lots of appropriate sound effects.

An acquired taste? Bizarre. Plot interspersed with DC characters. So many awesome voice actors!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

1 - I‘ve listened to both & enjoy both! Examples? Daisy Jones & The Six ... Harry Potter series.

2 - So many! RC Bray, Jim Dale, Ron Perlman, Bronson Pinchot, Ray Porter, Sean Runnette, Catherine Tate, David Tenant, Bahni Turpin, Wil Wheaton.

3 - Currently listening to an Audible Original, The Sandman by Neil Gaiman 🎧

Kenyazero I forgot that David Tenant is an audiobook narrator! I liked his read of The firs How to Train Your Dragon book. What have you heard him read? 2y
Twainy @Kenyazero he does a lot of kid books. I‘ve heard his voice in the dragon books plus Doctor Who, the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang books, Treasure Island books, Camilla, The Wizards of Once series, an HG Wells full cast, a Shakespeare full cast, others that I cannot remember .... 😁 2y
ozma.of.oz I love RC Bray! I‘ve listened to him read the Martian like four times! And I just bought the audible‘s Sandman production a couple days ago! Thanks for sharing! 2y

I normally don't read graphic novels, but can't not read everything by Neil Gaiman. I read the first volume over 10 years ago and wasn't so blown away by it that I was dying to read the next, but Neil's writing and the spell it weaves on the imagination have grown. Reading this was a different experience. The smaller stories interspersed with the main plot make for very entertaining read.

The artwork is gorgeous. The problem with the glossy pages is that it is all too easy to turn over several pages at once, which had me very confused for a while in several places.

There was a doll's house, but I have no idea why this volume was called that apart from a nod to the title of Ibsen's play, which I haven't read or seen so I'm no further forward.

Much better than Vol 1. The same mesmerizing artwork, but this time the story arc is more cohesive and stoked my curiosity as it went. I also thought the stories within each issue were stronger: I'm not a big fan of serial killer horror stories, but the 'Cereal Convention' was a creative take on this genre. I enjoyed the trip through time in 'Men of Good Fortune', even if it had little to do with the main story. And The Corinthian... 😨

I liked volume 2 a lot more than volume 1 and am looking forward to continuing with Sandman. Enjoyed this story about a vortex that needs to be controlled, which just so happens to be Rose, who is looking for her long lost brother.

Rose‘s story was the most interesting storyline for me, though there a bit more going on in addition to her story. I didn‘t find the Sandman parts as interesting, though he does intersect with Rose‘s story. On thinking back, I thought I had rated Vol. 1 lower than what I did. So, officially, I rated both volumes “good”, but I feel like I liked this one better, at least as compared to what I remember of the first one.
