Book Review: The Doll’s House (The Sandman, #2)

The Doll's House (The Sandman, #2)The Doll’s House by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really loved reading this. Volume 1 of the Sandman was good, but I definitely prefer this volume. I liked how the story was layered and how at the end, the doll’s house could mean many things. I’m really curious what will happen to Rose and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Book Review: Preludes and Nocturnes (The Sandman, #1)

Preludes and Nocturnes (The Sandman, #1)Preludes and Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a comic book (or graphic novel, as I think people now call them). I read them a lot as a kid, though, mostly religious themed ones. It was interesting to read from the perspective of a writer, as well. since it’s almost all short pieces of dialogue (with a handful of short pieces of narration). I had a little bit of trouble with some of the panels since I’m not used to reading sequences that aren’t mostly horizontal, but I got used to it.

The Sandman series is definitely not for kids, but I really enjoyed this first volume. The story was interesting, and I like the way Gaiman played with the archetypes presented. I’m looking forward to reading the next volume.
