The Sandman: Act III Audible Audiobook – Original recording
The groundbreaking audio production of what Los Angeles Times Magazine called “the greatest epic in the history of comic books” continues. Leading perhaps the best cast ever assembled in audio, James McAvoy returns to voice Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, in The Sandman: Act III, the third installment of the New York Times best-selling audio saga. Award-winning audio trailblazer Dirk Maggs adapts the blockbuster DC graphic novel series written by Neil Gaiman (Good Omens) into another fully immersive listening experience, presented for the first time in breathtaking 3D audio.
In Act III, we follow Morpheus on a grand journey to take care of family business. He visits with his son Orpheus (Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page), an act that brings with it profound consequences. Accompanied by Delirium (Kristen Schaal, Bob’s Burgers), he tracks down their estranged brother, Destruction (David Harewood, Supergirl), the only member of the Endless ever to abandon their post. And at an inn at the intersection of all worlds, a group of travelers are forced together by a storm that threatens to destroy reality itself, with grave repercussions for Morpheus and the rest of the Endless.
All the original cast returns, including Kat Dennings as Death, Aidan Turner as Cluracan, and Neil Gaiman himself as The Narrator, joined by Harewood and other new cast members Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), KJ Apa (Riverdale), Shruti Haasan (Race Gurram), and more.

This adaptation contains adaptations from volumes 6-8 of The Sandman comics.
This was another great adaptation of this series. I enjoyed the graphic novels of these three volumes but the audiobook really brings the character to life, especially with this great cast of people to voice the characters.
This volume contains The Story of Orpheus, Brief Lives, and World’s End. Orpheus, who is Morpheus’ son, had a heartbreaking story of love and loss. He found love and lost her on his wedding day, in response he goes to see Hades to save her and fails in the task. He also ends up finding out the consequences of his actions when he is attacked and should have died. He then spends hundreds of years trapped on an island until Morpheus releases him. These two do not have a great relationship but I liked seeing Morpheus finally feel in this one. He grieves and starts to see how his actions affect others.
Brief Lives is Morpheus and his sister Delirium searching for their lost brother Destruction. It was great seeing Morpheus actually spend time with someone other than Death. I really liked Delirium and Kristen Schaal did a great job voicing her character. Destruction is an interesting character and I wish we had got to learn more about him.
The World’s End story was basically a bunch of people being stuck in a Inn and telling stories about their lives. Some were interesting, others not so much. It was ok. Compared to the previous stories in this volume, this one was just ok for me. Overall, this was another great audio adaptation with a great cast of narrators. I can’t wait to listen to the next one!
