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.

*I had to clearly edit some text due to community guidelines haha*

The book is fast-paced and fascinating. You're in for a wild ride of humor and terror blended well together. Throughout I often thought, "What is going on here?" -- which kept me turning the page. There was a strange sense of serenity at the end that was unexpected, which I loved. Well written and twisted, the novel makes you think and wonder...and hope this is NOT where we're heading. A good read!

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.

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small and R3 makes you both and neither at the exact same time. R3 starts off as a contemplative observational story of one John Hammond, an acute and misanthropic young man whose forbidden attempt into reclaiming the ability to dream (in a world where everyone has lost that ability to) forces him down a wormhole that warps and melts his world and that of the reader.

The plot begins as a singular linear point of view of an outlaw, a murder mystery, and in a couple of chapters that single point of view unravels into multiple interconnected threads; as if the plot was shot through a language prism and fragmented into multiple paths which quintessentially are one and the same. The real beauty is that the style of the writing and how the story unfolds seamlessly mirrors the inner psychology of the character and the macro themes of the book.

It's a dark, twisted and strangely poetically poignant tale that manages to capture the psyche and imagination of the reader and completely transform itself and the reader from an initially basic narrative into an abstract deconstructed world that remains cohesive enough to tie in the explosion of threads through its internal space and time. The plot's greatest achievement is its ability to mirror the psychology of the main characters fragmentation and decent into insanity, which oddly becomes the most cohesive and enlightening state in an absurd world. It's a metaphysical and deconstructionist journey that is chilling in its ability to form absolute clarity out of a plot that quickly divulges into total chaos.

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.

"Everything falls, everything lands, everything arrives at its destination and comes full circle". What a great story! You will enjoy a metaphysical journey that will challenge you and make you feel in a constant dream like state.
