Book 29 - 2019

Book 29: The Sandman: Volume 2 - The Doll’s House by Neil Gaiman - 232 pages

Description from bookdepository.co.uk:
Morpheus tracks down three dreams who escaped his world, while a young woman searches for her little brother. As their stories converge, a vortex threatens dreamers worldwide.


Thoughts:
This is the second volume of Gaiman's Sandman series, and it is definitely better than the first. The story is tighter, and has a nice flow to it, and I feel like I'm starting to get the lore of this universe. It follows the story of a young woman who finds out she has a rich grandmother in England, and then tries to hunt down her brother. Her story collides with a convention of serial killers, and we start to understand some of other Endless that Morphesus interacts with. The creation of dreams, and how they can go rogue was also fascinating. Overall, I enjoyed this volume much more than the first.
