The Doll’s House (The Sandman #2) by Neil Gaiman

Mike Dringenberg (Illustrator),Chris Bachalo (Illustrator),Michael Zulli (Illustrator)


I read the first of this series a while back and liked the colour it added to my usual reading list. We continue to the quest that Morpheus is on, to restore complete balance in the world that had to survive without him. I liked the first story better than this one, my spotty reading spread out over multiple months proves the fact.

We have multiple stories tied up in this and there is a lot more happening now. There are existential questioned posed and pondered during the telling of the tale. The drawings are a little more brutal and not for the faint of heart (although I seem to be using this phrase more often of late, it is very true in this case).

There is a threat hanging over all the stories and the final reveal was startling. I liked the mysterious question dropped into the last few pages which, surprisingly was not addressed earlier!

I recommend this book to those on the lookout for a different read, people who like the author and looking to try graphic novels.Considering that this has been around a long time, I am sure (as I was with the first review) most hard-core fans are familiar with this series’ content.

My last Kindle unlimited book review was : Have You Seen Luis Velez? by Catherine Ryan Hyde

My list now looks like this:(each cover page leads back to the GoodReads synopsis)

  1. Gaiman is always a hit or miss with me. I either absolutely love his writing or I don’t like it at all. I loved the Sandman but for some reason cannot bring myself to read this one. After your review, I don’t feel the need to at all.
