It is the year 2111 AIB(After Insomnolence Began) and the United States is a nation full of people who can no longer sleep. It all began about ten years ago. All of a sudden people just could not sleep. It is the world where you literally have to earn “credits” to sleep. These sleep credits can be earned by doing grueling tasks like cleaning up dead bodies after the Sector Games(which reminded me of Hunger Games right down to the letter), and prostitution.
All of this just to get to sleep.
To dream, requires the dream pill.
The story follows Kate and Decker. Kate can not sleep. Decker however, is one of the sleepers- those unaffected by the event a decade ago. Decker goes out of his way doing odd jobs for Kate so she can earn sleep credits. Odd jobs meaning cleaning dead bodies just to earn enough sleep for two weeks.
You get the feeling Decker wants more from Kate. It is possible he loves her, but that is not the crux of the story. The story’s strength lies in the storytelling. D.K. Cassidy’s way of telling stories is more like a deeply engrossing journal. The different point of views are arranged sometimes haphazardly throughout the book and there is a constant jumping of time periods, but finally there is a smooth, linear progression by the middle of the book.
I will definitely recommend reading this book and her other books too. As I said before, her style of writing is refreshing and took some time for me to get used to, but the stories she tells are amazing.
Kate has non-rewarding jobs and longs to be able to sleep and dream. Her friend Decker is a member of a rebel group, called Sleepers, that are able to sleep naturally, but they must hide that from the government. Will Kate dare risk everything and join the rebels in order to sleep?
This is a very unique, engaging story.
This book is not written in chronological order. I personally hate this, but some like it, so just be warned. Still, the book was so creative I have to give it 4*.
Stay in her seemingly hopeless yet safe world.
Or help the Sleepers uncover the mystery behind the sleepless plague.
I was pleasantly surprised to find myself in the next century entranced by words such as: CDC, warfare, and secret testing and a seemingly happily married couple.
After another chapter or two, I learn that things are not all they appear to be--'top secret' another code word was one of my first clues.
No teasers here but prepare yourself for science fiction that borders on the credible and is a fascinating read.
