The visuals are amazing, vivid and tangible.

I wont get into what its about because i feel though the story has a path that its about the book itself is about so much more than the words on it.

Format: Paperback
R3 opened my eyes to the question, what if the world lost the ability to dream? Would people care or would everyone go crazy? I myself would probably feel detached from reality, because there's a reality to dreaming that keeps people sane. John, one of the only dreamers left in the world, goes on a drug induced hallucinatory search for the reality dreams create and goes full circle connecting the "meaning" of life and the freaks and geeks in it. It reminds me of Murakami's 1Q84 meets Alice in Wonderland told through the eyes of Oscar from Enter the Void. It has strong psychedelic visuals which are awesome. The only critique I have is that there's not enough details when setting opening scenes. Because the narrative changes through different characters in each chapter, sometimes it was a little confusing to tell which character I was suppose to be reading as. Other than that it was a really cool book and I couldn't put it down!

I felt this book was amazing. I wont get into what its about because i feel though the story has a path that its about the book itself is about so much more than the words on it. It was a gentle mind-fornication that takes your needs into consideration while keeping you trying to figure things out. There is wonderful social commentary in the book from a couple different angles. The book reads like and is as confusing as a dream. It had me confused and lost at times but it all made sense while i was confused and lost. I totally recommend this book if you'd like to be gently mind fornicated by a book with an ending that wraps up the entire book so wonderfully give this a read.

This book is very reminiscent of a childhood favorite of mine, "The Last Book in the Universe," except all grown-up with hyper-developed literary muscles and under the influence of the finest LSD modern chemistry has to offer. With every page, I could feel my brain dissolving into a lovely pool of tranquil hysteria. If you enjoy a good old fashioned neocortex-melt, I highly recommend this book.

Such a great book! As I read the book I found myself more and more often audibly saying,"What the f#%*?", and finding myself unable to put it down. The visuals are amazing, vivid and tangible. The story moves along with the ease. At the end I was left satisfied and still thinking about the entire story over and over again. Reminded of Memento, or Diary. A really cool concept executed in a manner of a purposeful artist with touch of madness. I highly suggest reading it... then again, and again.

There's a dream-like quality reminiscent of a Murakami novel, but with a wholly unique and darker tone. It's actually more like a nightmare than a dream -- in a good way! Mixing elements of a murder mystery, horror and sci-fi, the world of R3 is intriguing, dripping with detail, and quickly hurdles the reader into a world spiraling into the depths of a disintegrating reality.

An excellent story of an alternate, semi-dystopian world, with characters moving in and out of reality, that often reminded me of William Gibson's "Neuromancer" set in modern day. Very visual, very descriptive, very creative, and very captivating.
