Hailed by the Los Angeles Times Magazine as “the greatest epic in the history of comic books”, The Sandman changed the game with its dark, literary world of fantasy and horror - creating a global, cultural phenomenon in the process. At long last, Audible and DC present the first-ever audio production of the New York Times best-selling series written by acclaimed storyteller Neil Gaiman (who also serves as co-executive producer). Adapted and directed by multi-award-winner (and frequent Gaiman collaborator) Dirk Maggs, and performed by an ensemble cast with James McAvoy (It, Parts One and Two, X-Men: First Class, Split) in the title role, this first installment of a multi-part original audio series will transport you to a world that re-writes the rules of audio entertainment the way that The Sandman originally re-defined the graphic novel.
When The Sandman, also known as Lord Morpheus - the immortal king of dreams, stories and the imagination - is pulled from his realm and imprisoned on Earth by a nefarious cult, he languishes for decades before finally escaping. Once free, he must retrieve the three “tools” that will restore his power and help him to rebuild his dominion, which has deteriorated in his absence. As the multi-threaded story unspools, The Sandman descends into Hell to confront Lucifer (Michael Sheen), chases rogue nightmares who have escaped his realm, and crosses paths with an array of characters from DC comic books, ancient myths, and real-world history, including: Inmates of Gotham City's Arkham Asylum, Doctor Destiny, the muse Calliope, the three Fates, William Shakespeare (Arthur Darvill), and many more.
A powerhouse supporting cast helps translate this masterwork into a sonic experience worthy of its legacy, including Riz Ahmed, Kat Dennings, Taron Egerton, Samantha Morton, Bebe Neuwirth, Andy Serkis, and more. Setting the stage for their performance is an unprecedented cinematic soundscape featuring an original musical score by British Academy Award winner James Hannigan. Fans will especially revel in a new twist for the audio adaptation: Neil Gaiman himself serves as the narrator. Follow him as he leads listeners along a winding path of myths, imagination and, often, terror. Even in your wildest dreams, you’ve never heard anything like this.

Me raving about this book is not so much about the collected works of The Sandman itself but rather this specific adaptation. The calibre of some of the narrators is incredible: starting with Neal himself to James McAvoy to Taron Egerton to the fabulous Justin Vivian Bond. The 'end credits' took up over four minutes to list the entire cast and that in itself is already marvellous.
If you're not used to dramatisations, the beginning might be a bit rough. At first, the background noises and music sometimes made it hard to concentrate on the plot for a while. It must also be noted that this is merely a collection of the comics written by Neal so far and thus the narrative seems sorta chopped up. Once you've got a grip on that, though, you can enjoy the ride!
I haven't read too much of Neal's works but always admired him for his rhythmic language that is poetic without annoying me to death with stupid, useless prose. Even when reading his books, you can see he is a very thoughtful writer that likes writing as much for the creation of stories as he enjoys using language as an adaptable tool to do just that. It is definitely evident that Dirk did his best to capture that aspect of The Sandman and did a fantastic job getting the best out of all his narrators and sound crew.
Als Hörspiel aber funktioniert "The Sandman" so fabelhaft, dass man sich nur fragt: Warum hat man das nicht schon viel früher gemacht? "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" war ja damals ein ähnliches Kult-Buch, auch hier war das Hörspiel kongenial.
Neil Gaiman ist immer ein perfekter Sprecher für seine eigenen Werke, er hat eine sehr klangvolle, angenehme Stimme und kann feine Nuancen treffend herausarbeiten. Samantha Morton als "Death" passt super zu "Death" als Teenager-Goth-Girl und Andy Serkins gibt den verrückten Dr. Dee.
James McAvoy ist Morpheus und Michael Sheen spricht Lucifer Morning Star.
Ein intensiver Hörgenuss, der hoffen lässt, dass die ganze Reihe nach und nach vertont werden wird.
I fell in love with Dream and his world and started reading the comics after I was done.
This ausdiobook works more like a tv series than a movie: Multiple episodes, each telling their own story. Sometimes one story consists of multiple chapters, sometimes characters from older episodes reappear. All the actors did an amazing job and I cannot get over the fact how good James McAvoy is as Dream.
