I wasn't a fan of the artwork and I couldn't get into most of the stories.

It's nice seeing more of the Endless after finishing The Sandman series.

I love the whole Sandman series, and always love seeing the rest of the Endless :)

While the stories themselves are not particularly noteworthy, the writing itself is beautiful ; most impressive is the artwork, which in a few cases is stunning and exceptional. A rare book.

I recommend you read this after you finish the Sandman series.

One of the joys of the volume is the level of illustartion: some old favorites and some new pens, all very good. Visually spectacular (oh, and the writing is predictably excellent) and a very satisfying journey in its own narrative right--for the Sandman fan, diehard or casual, you will get another dose to quench your Sandman need.

Be careful with the Despair section: it is difficult. Don't go looking to any of these demanding a coherent narrative. As always, Gaiman is interested in innovating genre, not abiding by its rules--I don't mean this as an absolution, but a liberation.

Don't rush through it. Lavish the book with your attention.

Endless Nights is a volume of Sandman stories for those who need just a little bit more after Neil Gaiman wrapped things up in volume 10, The Wake. Found here are seven stories, one for each of the Endless. I enjoyed 5 of the 7 stories, which is why I rated it 3.5 stars. The story for Despair was a series of 15 snapshots of people in various stages of suffering and depression. The story for Delirium was incoherent; consistent with the character, but not enjoyable. Everywhere else in the series Delirium has been one of my favourites, with her child-like innocence. Not essential reading, but still nice. Recommended for fans of the Sandman series.
