Inhaltsangabe

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.

Absolute awesomness

Ich bin hin und weg. Nicht nur für Comicfans ein absolutes Muss. Die Umsetzung ist unfassbar gut gelungen, mit fesselnden Sprechern und packender Musik.

Next gen audio book

The different voices and sound effects are amazing. Great work, worth every cent. James McAvoy does a great job as Morpheus. It's completely captivating and enthralling.

The Sandman als Hörspiel - (k)ein Traum!

Wahnsinn, wer hätte das gedacht - noch vor der HBO-Serie erscheint eine brillante Hörspielfassung einer der großartigsten Geschichten aller Zeiten.
Die Sprecher sind fantastisch, die Effekte auch - kann es nicht erwarten, dass es weitergeht!

A Great Production

Had someone told me that James McAvoy would be the perfect Morpheus and that Taron Egerton would be great as Constantine, I might have been skeptical at first but all performances here are extraordinary.

A little too much

Good stories and good to superb voice acting. Unfortunately, to me the book is overdramatized. It makes it sometimes exhausting and worse, difficult to understand. But then again, I do not like dramatized audiobooks anyway and still enjoyed this one.

just fantastic

It's truly incredible how close this is to the original comic. It only loses very little content that was purely visual, but contemplates this with brilliant sound design. It's almost like listening to a movie.
