So this book gets mixed reviews, obviously. I’m a Sandman nut, and I really enjoyed it. Yes, it doesn’t jive with most of the traditional volumes – but it’s also just as important to the storyline as any of the other books. So if you want to get the full impact of the Sandman storyline, read this book! It’s considerably dark, like a fair amount of Sandman, and has some of that fun horror of the earlier volumes mixed in. Also, if you want to enjoy and understand the characters that show up in the Death spin offs, you gotta read A Game of You. I think it’s an often misunderstood book – give it a chance.
