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.
Amazing Dramatisation. Incredible Voice Acting.

The adaptation is very true to the original source. The dialogues are almost entirely the same as in the comics, while Neil Gaiman sets the scene of each panel through his narration.
This is a full cast adaptation, with a surreal background score that complements the story well.
in my opinion, the best experience is to be had by reading and listening simultaneously. A very unique and dreamy experience, that completely immerses you into it. However, the adaptation is good enough even if you are just listening.
