4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of Sandman - but still excellent, 16 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sandman: The Brief Live (The Sandman Library, Vol. 7) (Paperback)
In this story Dream and his sister Delerium (who was once Delight) go searching for their lost brother Destruction. Their search has unexpected consequences for those they meet.
More of the overall Sandman arc unfolds in this story as Morpheus takes certain decisions whose consequences are some way off. Also interesting is the reason for Destruction's actions. It tells us at least as much about Dream as it does about Destruction.
I found this book very disconcerting. I started off by dismissing it as a ramble, a blip in Gaiman's normally excellent record. However after a first reading, it grows on you. Its apparent aimlessness masks a deep purpose, and, in my opinion, the art by Jill Thompson is some of the best in the series.
And, after all, much of the meandering way it unfolds can be explained by the fact that it prominently features Delirium, one of Gaiman's most delightful characters (pun intended, for those of you who get it).
