    Description

    Please note: This content is not for kids. It is for mature audiences only. Just like the original graphic novels, this audio adaptation contains explicit language and graphic violence, as well as strong sexual content and themes. Discretion is advised.

    Enter the Dreaming again as the blockbuster audio adaptation of “the greatest epic in the history of comic books” continues in The Sandman: Act II. James McAvoy returns to voice Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, in this sequel to the number-one New York Times audio best seller. Journey into a world of myths, imagination, and terror based on the best-selling DC comic books and graphic novels written by Neil Gaiman (returning as the Narrator), and lose yourself in another groundbreaking, immersive drama adapted and directed by the award-winning audio master Dirk Maggs.

    In the absolutely packed Act II, the dark fantasy resumes and the Sandman expands into the French Revolution, ancient Rome, 19th-century San Francisco, eighth-century Baghdad, and beyond. New and familiar characters abound, voiced by a bright mix of performers, including Kat Dennings, Regé-Jean Page, Emma Corrin, Michael Sheen, Kristen Schaal, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Wright, and so many more, including fan-favorite narrators Simon Vance and Ray Porter.

    Just close your eyes and listen again as the greatest epic continues.

    Act II of the audio series The Sandman adapts collected volumes four (Season of Mists) and five (A Game of You) of the comics in their entirety, and most of volume six (Fables & Reflections).

    Génial!

    Si vous avez aimé l'acte 1 vous allez adorer. Quel plaisir de retrouver Morpheus et tous les personnages de Gaiman.

    Bazinga

    The Sandman: Act II is a phenomenal production. Neil Gaiman and Dirk Maggs have created another masterpiece. The first thing I noticed was the transition music was not as obnoxious as the first Act. The narration performances were all excellent. Put on some headphones and get immersed in the story. This is worth the price of admission.

    Disclaimer: My enjoyment of the narrator is based on my listening speed. I only leave 5 stars for books I've listened to or will listen to multiple times. I'll update my review if I listen again.

    As Above, So Below…. Another Masterpiece.

    I tore through act one in a few days in preparation for this release. I’ve been listening since it was available and I am not disappointed. The acting remains superb and Neil’s narration is a work of beauty and true artistry. His voice weaves a spell that the listener never wants to be free of.

    I think next time I listen I will follow along in the comics, which necessitates that I pull them out of storage. A worthwhile endeavor to be sure.

    It is awesome to have an aural track to put to the visuals and I can listen to this with or without the accompaniment of a real world visual. The pictures painted in my mind by this cast are vibrant and unmistakably Gaiman-esque in their depraved gorgeousness.

    I can’t wait for act three.

    A real review after having fully read this book

    This book started with a bang. Unfortunately, it didn't last. The main story ended less than a 1/3 of the way in, leaving me dissatisfied, confused, and asking a lot of questions. What follows is a collection of unconnected short stories which may or may not feature Morpheus. The short stories are very entertaining for the most part but they never again pick up the thread of the main story. By the end of this book, I was wishing it would hurry up and end.
    The first book was 100 times better. I wouldn't recommend this Act 2, but I wouldn't discourage reading it either. I'm disappointed.
    The performances were very good and it was a treat to hear some of my favorite voice actors.

    Another epic audio production

    Yesterday morning found me eagerly awaiting the release of act two of the Sandman saga. Exquisitely written and adapted for Audible by award-winning creatives Neil Gaiman and Dirk Maggs, this is the highly anticipated continuation of last year’s Audible original.
    Another epic adventure witch will appeal to those fascinated by comics, superheroes, fantastic creatures and exotic stories. I can confirm that I love it as much as I did Act 1.

    Intense action, captivating characters, the authors' rich imagination and superb audio production. Add to that the talented cast of actors returning for part two and you will realize that this is definitely a must buy four fans of the series.

    Just grab your headphones, close your eyes and discover a completely immersive narrative experience brought to life beautifully by award-winning voiceover artists. Enjoy the elevated and enriched authenticity thanks to high quality music and sound effects. It’s a treat from the first second to the last. I can’t wait for act 3 to be available, hopefully next year.

    I hope you found this short review helpful, take care, stay safe and don’t forget, always listen with your heart!

    Half full of short stories that drag on.

    The first part focusing on The Dream Lord was fantastic, once again. Dealings with demons, and the Endless have such potential. However, there are several short stories that are just plain boring, and drag on. It was a real struggle to listen to the last 2-3 hours.

    Great Production with Tepid Stories

    The cast and production of the Sandman books are top-notch and probably the best I've ever heard. The actors, sound effects, and the quality of the editing make the book. Unfortunately the main Sandman storyline was a bit weak at best. There just wasn't much suspension, action, or drama. And it ended quite anti-climatically. The chapter "A Game of You" following Barbie was dull to the point that I struggled to get through it without quitting the book altogether. The other short stories where mixed with one or two being slightly entertaining and one or two had me questioning why the were included at all.

    The possible potential for all of the mischief and machinations of the gods, demons, and the Endless was there, but the author didn't make much use of it, if any at all. Morpheus (the Sandman) was mostly insipid and bland with only a bit of interest or emotion. Lucifer, the main antagonist, was equally uninteresting and mostly absent. John Lithgow's Emperor Joshua was a bit more interesting and Cain was able to add a very small bit of unpredictability, but overall, the stories were basically disjointed and boring, without the substance and suspense that drives you to want more.

    As good as act 1, and better.

    A worthy follow-up to the first one. I hope to hear more comics adapted to this format in future. All cast members return, I believe, some I recognize, while others I don't. Excellent score, sound design, and more.

    Great as was the first act but be warned those who can’t stand the sound of eating in audio plays you will be fast forwarding parts.

    This book in the series or acts, drags.

    It drags on or drones, the first one was far better, this book doesn’t have the same feel. It’s a bunch of nonsense stories just jumbled all together.. hopefully if there’s a next book it’s better.

    High Quality Woke-scolding that's extremely boring

    I like the first iteration a great deal. McAvoy is a great voice actor and the sound production value even in the second season is top notch. Unfortunately the story is just downright boring. Completely boring, even with a VERY dramatic buildup! Loaded with woke virtue signaling, packed to the brim with misandry... it simply falls quite short of being worth the money.
    A huge and unfortunate disappointment that you'll mostly sleep through.

    Genial!!

    Ein absolutes Hörerlebnis! Atmosphärisch und spannend!
    Die Sprecher erwecken die Figuren in Sandman zum Leben. Allen voran James McAvoy der Morpheus Leib und Seele verleiht! Ein Highlight das man nicht verpassen darf!!!

    ...und nochmal einen drauf gesetzt

    Der erste Teil war schon gut, wenn auch mit ein paar Schwächen. Der zweite Teil ist, auch wenn ich die erste halbe Stunde skeptisch war, sogar noch besser. Ich kenne die Comics nicht, Muss ich aber auch nicht. Wer mit dem ersten Teil einigermaßen zurecht kam wird der Fortsetzung einfach folgen können. Diesmal passt einfach alles. Wieder geniale Besetzung und fantastische Produktion. Erneut mehrere Geschichten, aber es passt besser zusammen als beim ersten Teil. Absolute Kaufempfehlung.

    Im übrigen ist die englische Produktion der deutschen vorzuziehen, wenn man es sich sprachlich zutraut. Ich könnte James McAvoy stundenlang zuhören. Die anderen Sprecher sind ebenfalls topp.
