My Review: 4.5 stars

Nine short stories full of life lessons.The Intro was actually after the first story that's quite a nice change.The Author & Illustrators biography morphed and got that creepy disfigured/distorted images also other odd details.

I'd like to share some of my favorite and memorable lines,moments and thoughts about this book:

~Sometimes the fall you die or wake up [First story: Fear of Falling (ok I paraphrased that because the moral of the story is basically about falling,failure in life that's how you learn and have to move on)].
~His Madness keeps him sane (by Delirium).
~U.S has a first and last Emperor!
~Orpheus story (Morpheus/Dream's son) reminds me of Jack the halloween kind of story.
~Parliament of Rooks about Adam's wife(s) :0
~Ah the Ramadan, the beautiful Baghdad!
~In which I also thought about other soft places that ever existed.
~Simplicity and disguises works!

This truly made me realize how complex of a book this is,the characters,their names,personality and all that stuff oh wow! The series made me think about the sandman in a whole new level!
