Brief Lives (The Sandman, #7)

By Neil Gaiman

Rating: 4 stars

Possibly the most linear of all the Sandman stories, this volume has Dream and his sister Delirium searching for their lost brother. It also has themes on life and how no matter how long or short your life is, it’s all the same (Death says this at one point, “you got the same as everyone else: a lifetime”). A wonderful story about life, death and change, it feels melancholy all the way through (but that might just be future knowledge creeping in).
