Book Review — The Sandman: World’s End (The Sandman, Volume 8) by Neil Gaiman

The Sandman, Vol. 8: Worlds' End (The Sandman, #8)The Sandman, Vol. 8: Worlds’ End by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy storyception Batman.

World’s End sees Chaucer’s frame narrative and goes all in.

We have a story told by Gaiman, about travellers in an inn telling stories, many of which have stories within them, and even some that have stories within those. Phew!

Remember what I said about Gaiman being a storytelling genius? He proves it beyond a doubt here.

The best part is that this volume is short enough to pick up for a quick read. I see myself coming back to Sandman in the future. Definitely as a full re-read, but with lots of single-issue and -volume reads as well.
