The Sandman Vol. 7: Brief Lives': A Journey of the Endless

Rating: 4.5/5 ⭐️

I got Immersed into the enchanting world of 'The Sandman' listening to 'The Sandman: Act 3' audiobook on Audible. This act unfurls two mesmerizing volumes: 'Vol. 7: Brief Lives' and 'Vol. 8: Worlds' End'.

In 'Brief Lives', I found myself drawn to Delirium, a character as whimsical as her name, yearning to reconnect with her long-lost brother, Destruction. Destruction, an enigmatic figure, has forsaken his duties and left the Endless, adding a layer of mystery to his character.

After unsuccessful attempts to seek help from Desire and Despair, Delirium turns to Dream. Dream, in desperate need of a diversion from his own turmoil, agrees to aid Delirium on her quest. This agreement sparks the beginning of a grand adventure, a journey that transcends the confines of the waking world and ventures into the mystical realms.

As I followed Dream and Delirium through various realms, consulting individuals acquainted with Destruction, I found myself unravelling a tapestry of secrets and revelations. Things are of course never that easy and they get further tangled. Dream gets into a situation where he must break his word to someone he holds dear.

'Brief Lives' is a meditation on the fleeting nature of life itself. It reminded me that life is ephemeral, not just for mortals or gods, but even for the Endless.
