Rated 5 out of 5 by from As wonderful as the first - a great series! Taking off from where Preludes & Nocturnes leaves off, The Doll’s House, the second graphic novel in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman collection gives the reader history on the main character, the Dream King. We revisit characters that were introduced in the first book and are introduced to new characters, namely Rose Walker, the granddaughter of Unity Kinkaid, who is a vortex who must be killed for the dream world to survive. I loved Preludes & Nocturnes and found myself getting swept up in this second instalment. Though it was a little messier compared to the first instalment, The Doll’s House kept me intrigued for the whole story. I appreciated the rehashing of what happened last, as well as the introduction by Clive Barker. The artwork is still amazing — though still old-school compared to some of the graphic novels available nowadays. The beauty of Gaiman’s Sandman series is that I keep finding myself wanting to go back and reread as I go on. I keep wanting to make sure I’m connecting the dots correctly and taking everything in. With most graphic novels, I usually take them out of the library, but I find myself wanting to own each instalment of this series — it just keeps getting better and better! I love the contrast between the real world and fantasy, between good and evil. After finishing reading, I immediately bought the third instalment, Dream Country — I can’t wait to give it a read!
