This book is a beautiful bound tome with gorgeous art and some wonderful stories. Content-wise, I could tell that Neil Gaiman was experimenting when he began writing this now-famous series. The quality of the story is a bit uneven. Some of the novels were amongst some of the best graphic novels I have read, while others were "merely" entertaining, didn't quite stand alone, or felt like they belonged to a different graphic novel series. Overall this collection was definitely worth reading, and I look forward to reading future stories in Gaiman's dream-scape.
