A finance student - will change it after degree. Interested with meeting book lovers. A huge fan of foods, history, blue and of course, books.

The Sandman, Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes - Neil Gaiman, Malcolm Jones III, Karen  Berger, Sam Kieth, Todd Klein, Mike Dringenberg This volume has 8 parts. Initially, I never thought to pick up this graphic novel yet (was going to read Sin City but oh well). Dream, who is known as The Sandman, Morpheus, and many more is the main character in this series. He rules the dreams and nightmares. So, he is technically part of The Endless. Sleep of the Just (#1)In this chapter, Federick Burgess wants to capture Death (Dream's older sister) to exchange immortality, superpower, blah blah. However, he fails to do so and ends up with Dream instead. Dream is imprisoned in a goldfish bowl for about 70 years and manages to escape. To pay back what Federick did, Dream revenges by giving his son an eternal nightmare.Imperfect Hosts (#2)Abel and Cain find Dream who is weak and on the way back to his castle. After he rests at their home, he finds that his castle is in total ruin state.Dream a Little Dream of Me (#3)Dream and John Constatine set off to find Dream's pouch of sand.A Hope in Hell (#4)Dream sets off to Hell to get back his helm and challenges the demon and Lucifer.Passengers (#5)Setting off to get back his ruby by asking Justice League's help, however it seems he can't touch the ruby.24 Hours (#6)Dr Destiny decides to wait for Dream at a small cafe while causing madness among the customers and eventually dead.Sound and Fury (#7)Dr Destiny challenges Dream and in the end the ruby is destroyed. The Sound of Her Wings (#8)This part is funny. Dream sulks and feeding pigeons when his older sister, Death comes over to knock some sense in his head. My verdict: I love it.
