Sexton is 16-years old and thinking about killing himself. He is writing a note when his mother interrupts him and asks him to leave so she can do some spring cleaning. While out, Sexton meets Didi… who it turns out is Death personified, though she does “remember” her young teenage life as Didi. She appears to be a teenager like Sexton, so they spend a day and night just “hanging out” doing normal teenage things (while still aiming to do an odd errand – there is a 250 year old woman who has asked Didi to find and retrieve her heart for her).

This is a graphic novel, highlighting the character Death from the “Sandman” series.. I liked it better than the ones I’ve read from the Sandman series. The introduction by Tori Amos was odd. I also though the “afterword” comic on sex and AIDS was odd, but it was published I 1993, so I guess he was trying to get some factual info out there. But I liked the character who is Death, and her kind-of friendship with Sexton. I also loved her “look” – dark and goth. ( )

It's a good story. It's just not as great as the main body of The Sandman series. It probably gets more love because the character is so fantastic than it does for the actual plot. At least, that's certainly true for me. ( )

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.
