30 Day Book Challenge - Day 14

Day 01 – The best book you read this year
Day 12 – A book you used to love but don’t anymore
Day 13 – Your favorite writer
Day 14 – Book from your favorite writer

This was a tough choice.  I love everything I've ever read by Neil Gaiman.  They are all brilliant.  And trying to choose a favorite... well, it's like trying to decide my favorite child or favorite niece or nephew.  It's difficult.  But, I did finally come up with a choice, and that is Brief Lives.  Sandman is just barely my favorite of all the things he's written, and of all the stories, Brief Lives does come in first.  Because it's Del's story, and you get to see so much strength from her where you weren't expecting it.  It's the beginning of the end for Dream and it's the first real chance we have to see Destruction.  It's a pivotal point in the whole series.  And it's just brilliant.
