I don't know if I would've liked it so much if I didn't already know Death, but I do, and I appreciate that Gaiman didn't mess it all up by changing her characterization. She's just the same as she should be.

After reading the sequel-slash-part-2, I know I like it. ( )

Once every hundred years Death must spend a day as a human girl. Death has always been one of my favorite Sandman characters and I am happy that she scored her own book. Death meets a boy named Sexton who is contemplating suicide, he basically feels life is too boring to live. Death (as Didi) is so joyful and happy to experience life, it can't help but rub off on anyone who meets her, even if the results are not exactly what's expected. ( )

Looking back at a modern classic, Death: The High Cost of Living maintains its quiet charm over a decade after its publication.
