REVIEW A Game of You

Um Jogo de Ti é o 5º volume da colecção Sandman e nele encontraremos como protagonista principal Barbie uma personagem já nossa conhecida do volume 2 Casa de Bonecas Barbie é a figura central deste volume e Sonho embora tenha um papel a cumprir na história é empurrado para segundo plano permitindo nos viver de perto a aventura de um grupo de humanos presos numa dimensão de sonhos e pesadelosBarbie vive I have read the first five volumes of The Sandman and so far this is only my third favorite after A Doll s House and Seasons of Mist Its development is somewhat muddy its narrative too crowded with characters and it is somewhat removed from the central myth of Sandman and the theological and cosmic uestions which surround him themes I find the most compelling part of this series I admit though that this preference may be merely a matter of taste What A Game of You lacks in abstract matters it compensates for in its emphasis on the personal As the title indicates this tale is about human psychology and the stratagems we employ both to hide from ourselves and to endure what we must But it is also than mere psychologizing for it is metaphysical too suggesting that our dreams may be rooted in an extra personal reality a pre planned landscape which can be invaded and dominated by others Our tale opens as the sleeping Barbie a character along with her husband Ken from A Doll s House is being summoned by a group of little talking animals to a dream world where she is the Princess and in which her friends the animals are being menaced by someone or somehing called The Cuckoo Soon The Cuckoo extends its menace to the waking world Barbie is sucked into the world of dreams and her fellow apartment dwellers a lesbian couple one of whom looks like an adorably benign Pete Lorre a transgender woman and a hippie witch who is a lot I mean a lot older than she looks Their uest to defeat the cuckoo and the help they receive from Dream occupies most of the narrativePerhaps most remarkable about this tale is its great range from the childlike and whimsical to the violent and horrific Nothing in this tale neither the sentiment nor the ghastly humor seems the least bit out of place

A Game of You

Em Nova Iorue sem dinheiro e num apartamento minúsculo para onde se mudou após a sua separação de Ken Para seus vizinhos e companheiros de aventura Gaiman escolheu algumas figuras um tanto ou uanto peculiares e representativas de uma série de estereótiposGeorge o vizinho rabugento preconceituoso e maníaco ue colecciona fotos de Barbie e ue talvez seja mais do ue aparenta à primeira vista Hazel e Foxglo Re Read 5120shiver Such goodness may deserve a verbose review but fortunately I already wrote one And I don t really have much new to say Original ReviewI love Barbie I love Wanda I love ThessalyTruly this was one hell of a tightly woven story including inner worlds cuckoo birds ancient witches pulling down the moon and deathThere s no way in hell that I could really boil it down to essentials As a whole it seriously rocks and hits me in the feels Sexual identity and childhood and babies are only a part of it Being wise and forgiving is only a part of itHell I see that holy bitch at Wanda s funeral and I see her just acting in her nature just like the Cuckoo and I feel like Thessaly knowing I really ought to behave like Barbie It tears me upThis is serious literature Both fantastic strange and deep as hell and sharp Hard to believe after reading it that it is a comic

Ve um casal lésbico Thessaly a jovem intelectual de aspecto frágil e ue ela também poderá ser diferente do ue parece e ainda Wanda uma mulher transsexualUm Jogo de Ti é uma mistura de realidade sonho bruxaria e uestões de identidade sexual é um volume ue Gaiman compôs de modo a uestionar profundamente as uestões da identidade individual ou não natural ou construída e o papel dos nossos sonhos para el In this fifth Sandman volume we meet some characters from previous ones Barbie chief amongst them She no longer dreams and as it turns out that really will drive you mad of sorts We therefore get a magical dreamland some colourful house mates of different sexualities and clears throat ages and of course the Lord of DreamsNot sure if this volume actually does anything for the overall story I ll only be able to judge that later but it was uite some fun From small minded small town folks getting a nasty mirror held up to their faces not that they ll actually be ashamed and change to witches hurricanes and talking animals the authors managed to pack this rainbow coloured story full of some deep musings about sexual identities different kinds of childhoods forgiveness and much The most prominent topic in this volume was once again stories How we make them what they make us become in turn the fact that we all have themI think my favourite character was Thessaly No she can t compete with Death but she s close And then there was one of THE most iconic images from the entire series it s also one of the most beautiful in the series so far if you ask meSo as you can see the art will probably always be this way and nothing too pretty but in many instances that actually works well with the story the story is eccentric and so is the artNot as powerful as some of the other volumes I ve read so far but on the level these writers and artists are operating that still means it s very good view spoilerI really am not the forgiving type Wanda s parents deserve a slow and painful death hide spoiler

    I have read the first five volumes of The Sandman and so far this is only my third favorite after A Doll's House and Seasons of Mist Its development is somewhat muddy its narrative too crowded with characters and it is somewhat removed from th

    The spell has been broken the dream has ended Well at least for now I was really surprised at how weak the writing was in this volume; it felt like a spin off than part of the actual series Dream was barely present; he was of a side c

    I really like how Gaiman explores child imagined fantasy worlds like Narnia or Oz Yet at the same time this is also very much about identity and how we view ourselves especially those of ueer and trans orientations I really enjoy how Gaiman weaves in elements of past storylines as this reaches back to minor characters from A Doll's

    A Game of You the 5th volume in the Sandman series is my favorite so far One thing I've noticed Gaiman is very good at is picking up little threads he dropped in previous stories and building on them this was one of my favorite things about Buffy; there's nothing rewarding for a viewerreader than a story that doesn't forg

    Sandman continues to confound and confusticate though that’s good thing in this instance This volume took a sharp left turn from the last one with a minor character taking center stage and Dream playing only a small supporting role It’s a little bit like watching a Ghostbusters spinoff where Louis Tully gets lead billing and Peter Venkman shows up to crack a few jokes toward the end before high fiving Slimer in a cl
