5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the limits of the Endless, 2 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sandman: Season of Mists (The Sandman Library, Vol. 4) (Paperback)
If you read only one Sandman novel in your life, let it be this one. Although some background reading is advised it is not necessary, all you need is an open mind to accept the extreme intermingling of theology and mythology - past AND present, and an open heart to welcome the characters that will touch it in ways you would never expect "comic" book characters to ever do.
You cannot help but feel sorry for Morpheus, as he wanders around his palace with his lonely wistful eyes. A romantic at heart, he desperately craves the comfort and solitude found in companionship, but his fate as set out by his brother Destiny, is to self-destruct any chance he has of finding true happiness before his end.
It is this pain and stubborness that leds to the beginning of this beautiful tale, of cruelty, of the subconscious of man, and eventually to betrayl and redemption. God in this world, is cruel but loving, and will not hestitate to sacrifice one of his own to equalise the balance in the world.
The resolution of the story is at once complete and incomplete. Although Gaiman's tale has been told, it leaves us aching for more, a very rare sign of an extremely good writer,which of course, is what Gaiman is.
