    Description

    Offer available to U.S. listeners only. Ends Oct. 22, 2021.

    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.

    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.

    Commentaires

    "James McAvoy leads an all-star cast in narrating this magnificent audio adaptation of Neil Gaiman's iconic graphic novel series, The Sandman.... As listeners are swept up in a saga in which cats talk and nightmares walk, McAvoy's steady characterization reminds them that it’s all in a day's work for him. While the cast members are exquisite, special mention goes to the production staff. The sound effects are immersive, and there is a wonderful cinematic score. This audio drama is compelling. Listeners won’t be able to pause once they hit play." (AudioFile magazine)

    Une nouvelle expérience d’audiobook sur fond de rêves et de cauchemars !

    Une expérience unique en terme d’audiobook qui s’approche plus du cinéma. Très agréable bien que parfois compliqué avec toutes les voix différentes.
    Cependant l’imbrication de toutes les différentes histoires ressemblent plus à un recueil de nouvelles.
    Attendez vous aussi à une bonne dose de gore, d’horreurs et de cauchemars ... vous voici averti :)

    Disappointed

    Sound and music are great.
    Same for the voices.

    But GOD, how bad is this story!
    It’s so simple that I just stopped after trying for 3 hours…
    Also there a multiples times where something is happening but without the explication of it. Like if it was a movie and not a book.

    Five stars and even more

    Fascinating story, amazing cast and oh the soundscapes and ambiences...


    I decided to read the comics while listening to the audio and by doing so I realised even more all the work that has been put into this masterpiece, all the arrangements for the context and the slight changes in lines here and there...
    It might seem odd, but one of my favourite moments is when you can hear the distant, echo of Lucifer's cry as Morpheus recalls the day he fell from Heaven.

    In any case, the magic is working.

    It was like a dream. Or was it ?

    A masterpiece, masterfully narrated and played

    Every actors gives their best to bring life to their character in a wonderful story by Neil Gaiman. I often listened to this while in my bed and let myself being brought to the world of dreams. I felt joy, fear, anticipation, epicness, horror and peace. I enjoyed every bits of this story.

    Amazing book and perfectly performed too. Neil Gaiman always finds ways to amaze us, but this is something else. It's too good, too realistic. Dive in, reader, you won't regret it.

    absolutely Epic!

    The Sandman is a fantastic, immersive and unparalleled audio production. From award-winning author Neil Gaiman and adapted for Audible by the great Dirk Maggs, you'll be swapped away in an Epic adventure you could have never imagined.

    Expertly combining, fantasy and fiction, horror and humor, comedy and tragedy, The Sandman is a fast paced, visceral narrative experience that will stay with you for a long time!

    Put on your headphones or even better, stream it on your favorite smart speaker in the house and you'll be in for a treat. I listened to The Sandman on my Apple Homepod Stereo setup and the experience was absolutely incredible. I closed my eyes and vividly lived all the events portrayed in this adaptation of the first three Sandman novels.

    With a formidable cast of characters, brought to life by some of the best actors in the audiobooks and movies industries, the listener's experience is enriched and elevated by a a moving soundtrack and high quality sound effects.

    I didn't know anything about the Sandman comics, but I was immediately blown away by this adaptation! I can't wait for the next one! This is the best Audible Original that I listened to so far!

    Sounds Like a Perpetual Movie Trailer

    I couldn't tell if it was a good story or not, couldn't follow it. It plays like a confusing recap from a previous episode but never getting to the real story. Just confusing background noises and elaborate score and different voices bouncing between characters.

    I'm sure Neil Gaiman did a great job writing this but the producer and sound mixer failed horribly.

    A great story with an intro theme you will hear 40 times.

    The story is great as well as the performances however, they play this intro them in and out over and over. It really rips you out of the story and horribly distracting.

    Not what I hoped for

    I know a two-star review for story seems harsh but allow me to explain why I felt this title was a letdown. Although the first few chapters are generally related to each other and follow a linear story line, many of the subsequent chapters are told as stand-alone stories (especially near the end), they jump around the timeline and are largely unrelated to the main story told at the beginning of the book. Although these stories paint an interesting picture of a world that is classic Gaiman, on the whole I found them dull and could have stopped listening after the first half of this title.

    I never read the graphic novels and was coming into this as a fan of Neil Gaiman's writing. Perhaps that was why I did not enjoy the title as much as I hoped. A two-star review for story is harsh when compared to the other titles on audible but in comparison to the stories told in Gaiman's other work I feel it is appropriate. The intricate and compelling stories told in American Gods, Neverwhere, and even the lesser known Anansi Boys all put this title to shame.

    Perhaps I am simply not a fan of this particular medium and should stick to listening to standard novels. All the other 5-star reviews on here may indicate that this type of story isn't for me. It is clear a lot of money was put into production, I found the voice acting, casting, and sound effects to be very well done. It is just a shame that with some many resources put into production and marketing, I would have rather spent my time re-reading Neverwhere.

    Just perfect. Close your eyes, headphones on and allow yourself to be pulled into this amazing creation (easily done with this talented selection of cast).

    But be weary and don’t you ever fall asleep.

    Perfect adaptation

    The story is faithful to the comic and has been transferred the audio medium perfectly. The music and sound effects are some of the most impressive I've heard on an audio drama to date, I have to say my anticipation was rewarded greatly. Can't wait to finish the rest of it. But if you're a fan of the comic there's no question you're gonna love this version of it too.

    This reminds me of the old radio plays but done to absolute perfection. I didn’t know how they would adapt the graphic novel but I am simply blown away but the acting. I feel absolutely transported into the world of The Endless.

    Love the Ambience!

    I'm not a huge fan of audio books, but when I saw the ad for a Sandman audiobook I HAD to give it a listen. I'm loving the detailed background audio so far, it really helps set the scenes perfectly. It's almost as if you are listening to a movie's soundtrack rather than a book. The voice actors are amazing as well, a gathering of several really talented actors, all of whom have done an excellent job! I'm already 3 hours in and I know this is already the highest quality audiobook that I have ever listened to. As for the story, I am a bit biased, since I was already a HUGE fan of the graphic novels this is based off of, but I love this version just as much so far. Since Neil Gaiman himself was involved in this, I doubt it will deviate in any great way from the original, save for in ways necessary for the format. So, if you like the Sandman graphic novels, and don't mind audiobooks, definitely check this out!!

    BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER

    When I found out a month and a half ago that audible was adapting my favorite graphic novel series (and one of my all time favorite stories) into a full cast audio production, I was excited though hesitant. Can they do justice to one of the most beloved stories of the 20th century?

    Not only is that a profound yes, but I’m currently in awe at how well done the adaptation is. James McAvoy’s voice was always Morpheus. I just didn’t realize it until today.

    The universe really out did itself on my birthday present this year. It’s really all that I could ever hope for and more. 💖

    Nicht mein Ding

    Das Gute zuerst: Die Stimmen der Sprecher sind wirklich gut. Aber das Hörspiel gefiel mir persönlich gar nicht.
    Ich finde, es hört sich an, als ob es einfach die Tonspur eines Comic Films ist. Die Bilder fehlen einem dazu. Das mag manchen gefallen- mir persönlich fehlt genau der Punkt, dass die Bilder sich erst im Kopf entwickeln...

    Wahnsinn, wer hätte das gedacht - noch vor der HBO-Serie erscheint eine brillante Hörspielfassung einer der großartigsten Geschichten aller Zeiten.

    Swing and Miss

    Es ist nie ein gutes Zeichen wenn man schon während dem hören daran denkt was man alles in die Rezension schreibt...

    Ich mag Comics und Neil Gaiman, der Cast und die Rezensionen haben mich dann überzeugt, aber meine Güte war das eine nervige Produktion und eine langweilige Geschichte!

    Zur Produktion: Die Hintergrundgeräusche sind viel zu laut und viel zu häufig. Das stört beim Zuhören und es ist nicht möglich die Geschichte so nebenher z.B. beim autofahren oder aufräumen, zu hören. Es ist wie ein Film ohne Bild... Nervig. Die Macher haben sich viel Mühe gegeben und richtig viel Geld für die Produktion ausgegeben, siehe Cast, aber ein Hörspiel ist nun Mal kein Film.

    Zur Geschichte: Auch hier merkt man, dass es eine Adaption aus einem anderen Medium ist. Es sind im Prinzip 20 mehr oder weniger zusammenhängende Geschichten. Da ist Mal eine spannender und eine dann langweiliger, aber wirklich fesselnd ist keine davon und der Großteil ist nach Minuten schon wieder vergessen.

    Incredible

    An amazing, thoughtful, funny, loving, creepy and sad piece of art. The whole ensemble is wonderful, it is like listening to a movie made for your ears.
    Neil Gaiman proves himself to be a masterful narrator (as an author and as a audionarrator). I hope they will release the other Sandman books as well.

    BItte mehr mit James McAvoy

    Zunächst muss man sagen, dass die Besetzung der Sprecher absolut genial war. Ohne diese hätte ich wohl bedeutend länger gebraucht um das Hörspiel durchzuhören. Ich könnte James McAvoy stundenlang zuhören, sehr schade, dass er nicht mehr Hörbücher spricht. Die anderen Sprecher waren ebenfalls sehr gut bis überragend.

    Die Geschichte selbst ist nicht das, was man nach dem Lesen der Beschreibung erwartet. Ginge es nur darum, dass Morpheus sich befreit und sich auf die Suche nach seinen Werkzeugen macht, so wäre die Geschichte bereits nach einem Drittel der Spielzeit beendet. Es folgen weitere kleine Geschichten über ihn und sein Reich. Nicht alle werden zufriedenstellend abgeschlossen - das mag aber auch daran liegen, dass ich nur einen sehr kleinen Teil der DC Welt kenne und dies mein erstes Neil Gaiman Buch war.

    An manchen Stellen fällt es extrem schwer dem Handlungsverlauf zu folgen, da einfach Einsatz vom Erzähler fehlt. Viele Szenen sind gut beschrieben und erzählt, bei anderen muss man sich die ersten Minuten stark konzentrieren um den Faden zu finden und dann nicht zu verlieren.

    Insgesamt eine gute Produktion, alleine die Sprecher sind es wert. Gute Englischkenntnisse sind ausreichend.
