I have always like gothic novels, or psychological novels. I think they give great insight into the darker sides of humanity, and the key to knowing yourself is to accept and understand everything about yourself.... even the bad parts. In reading through this book of The Sandman... it went beyond the darkness I am accustomed to. I reacted in a way that I've never reacted to anything before. My skin crawled from how bleak and terrible humans can be, and yet the comic manages to be somewhat hopeful and uplifting.... It was the strangest combination I have ever encountered.
This book is highly recommendable for anyone who has an open mind, the ability to accept humanity's flaws, and the strength not to despair. If you're not someone like that, don't read this.
