The fifth installment of Gaiman's Sandman, A Game of You, brings back Barbie from volume two's A Doll's House. She is living in a boarding house with as odd a collection of characters as in that book and having residual flashes of a dream where she is a princess. When a dream character becomes real and dies in front of her, Barbie falls into an unending dream as a lethal hurricaine bears down on the city. She must traverse the Dreaming and avoid the Cuckoo (and no, that's not a bird).
I loved the intricacy of the stories and the myriad characters, including the mysterious Thessaly. The moon-path was an incredible plot device and so good when mixed with all the other Greek mythology elements. The last chapter was heart-breaking.
