I've been a fan of the Sandman Slim but this book was a jumbled pity party. Sandman slim was better when he was driven by his anger at the world and those that had wronged him. The emo version of Stark that the reader is forced to suffer in this book is not the same guy. Somewhere in the endless complaining I think I saw something that looked like a plot but it’s hard to be sure. I vaguely remember something about reality threatening to unravel and random appearances by volcanoes, icebergs, and porn stars.
Major events in the series story line are treated like unimportant little details in this book. They just sort of happen suddenly and none of the characters seem to care very much or react in a manner that makes much sense. All in all this is a very disappointing addition to the Sandman Slim series.
