    The third volume of The Sandman series is a bit of a mixed bag, since the individual stories, although all entertaining, vary in quality. And yet it also contains what may be the greatest Sandman tale of all time. First of all, this volume is essentially half the length of the fir...

    Note: This is part two of a rambling multi-volume re-read of the series. It will probably make better sense in context of other reviews... The third volume of Sandman is several short stand-alone stories. It also includes my my favorite story in the entire series. Where Shakespeare...

    3.0 stars. A good collection of four unconnected solo stories. I did not like this volume as much as Volumes 1 and 2 but it is still worth reading. My favorite story is probably "A Midsummer Night's Dream" followed closely by "A Dream of A Thousand Cats." The former story is the only c...

    This is a volume with three brilliant stories and one mediocre one. So I give it a 4.5. The last story keeps me from giving it a 5. I know there is still plenty more Sandman to go, but this will continue to rank as one of my favorites whatever comes in the future volumes. I don't li...

    Wow. I'm glad I started reading The Sandman again. Dream Country is the shortest of the series (I believe), comprised of four short stories. Take note of that before you get frustrated that none of the issues are part of a larger arc, like I did. I'm still curious where this whol...

    I quit. Sandman is not for me. I can honestly see why so many of you love it, but... I can't force myself to do this any longer! I don't like the art. It reminds me of some scratchy shit that one of my kids drew. The difference is, the artist isn't one of my kids, so I don't feel ...

    Leída, releída y requeteleída de la vieja edición en castellano de Zinco en taco, cuya existencia parece incomprobable, salvo porque tengo el taco justo delante. Una serie de cuatro relatos aparentemente inconexos que suman muchas pistas y claves para el posterior -y anterior- desa...

    Four stories which reveal how human desires for fantasy go a bit awry in the world of the Endless. Wait. Maybe it's the other way around..... I loved two stories very much: A Midsummer Night's Dream, and A Dream of a Thousand Cats. The tale of the writers and the Muse is horrible. T...

    Every time I read a volume of Sandman, I desperately hope I'll love it. Then I get a sinking feeling as I read and find myself bored and unimpressed, and I start to fear that someone is going to show up at my door and revoke my nerd card. Because everyone loves Sandman. You can't be a ...

    This is a fairly short volume, but each story is tight and delightful. This is where I remember the Sandman comics coming into its own, and Morpheus himself hardly had any role in them. It's all about stories. Stories about stories. Of course, I can make the same argument about the ent...

    An intermezzo between two longer story arcs, composed of four stand-alone issues. Part of the appeal for me is in the quality of work from the guest artists, Charles Vess and Kelley Jones in particular, but the main attraction remains in the creative writing of Gaiman. 17 - Calliop...

    The Sandman graphic novels are a myriad of styles in themselves: Preludes and Nocturnes cemented the foundation of the whole series, introducing us to Morpheus, the axis where this fictional universe rotates; The Dolls House proved how Gaiman can masterfully weave a story of mortals th...

    Gaiman's The Sandman Vol. 3 "Dream Country" is more or less a collection of short stories that are related to the the series, but unrelated in terms of the main storyline that's been going on in the first two volumes. I hate when good storylines like that in "The Doll's House (Vol. 2)"...

    I?ve been re-reading a lot of books that I enjoyed years ago recently and it?s been very rewarding for the most part, rediscovering books I loved all over again. Unfortunately Sandman - a series I really liked the first time round - is not among them and it?s so disappointing! Wh...

    The Dream Country contains 4 stand alone stories and Morpheus is mentioned only as a side character in A Midsummer Night's Dream, which won The World Fantasy Award. Even though that story won a big award, it was not my favorite in the collection- I much preferred both Calliope an...

    Strangely enough this was my favourite volume so far, though it was disconnected from the rest of the storylines. Essentially standalone tales, in the words of the author's website: "Dream Country is the first story arc made up entirely of different tales. We meet the mother of Morpheu...

    I have to say I think that this one is probably my favourite of the Sandman Volumes so far and I read this as a part of the Booktubeathon. It was a very easy read and one which I enjoyed a lot because of the storyline. I have to say that the artwork of this series (as it changes artist...

    Sometimes I like to binge read a series, I enjoy it that much that I try to read it as quickly as possible. The real world ceases to exist for a few days. This really isn?t anything particularly remarkable to say about a series, most readers do this sort of thing. Though every so oft...

    I did like this, but thought that it was a bit all over the place. I only really liked one issue and that was the one dealing with Death and the woman who was not a woman, Rainie. There seemed to be no connection between these issues and I thought that the issue ending on scripts of wh...
