All these and are taken from reviews of the dooyooCommunity.
|The Sandman: The Doll's House - Neil Gaiman|
A complex, multi-faceted, extended plot that demonstrates Neil Gaiman at his most creative.
Overreaches on occasion, and takes some distracting time-out.

Very rich in descriptions of Africa, written by a skilled author.
Far too long for the content of the plot.
