There is a good deal of violence and some descriptions of gore, but all of it is so far removed from reality that it didn't bother me. YMMV.
I will say that it's literally dark in mood. The concepts being dealt with are not intended to be light, fluffy, or simply feel good action. There are a lot of abstract concepts being given relatable existence and put to stage. (To be clearer, the main character is a nightmare of dog teeth chasing people - an abstract thought with a mind of its own) Each character has their own goals and beliefs that clearly come through. The main character is both easy to follow and still oddly deep. There are tidbits to the existence of these nightmare creatures that give far more depth than I ever expected.
To me, in a world with constantly new material being shoved into our faces, a 5/5 means I would willingly read this book again, and any sequel without hesitation. I will remember this story for years.
The whole book reads much like a dream; it’s disjointed, vague and the world is constantly changing. I think this is what the author intended, but for me it was just a little…boring. I just couldn’t see where things were going. It was a lot of Fang running from one odd scene to the next. None of it was truly scary. There were times when I had to force myself to continue reading, because it just wasn’t very interesting.
This book would probably make a really cool graphic novel as there were tons of descriptions of strange characters and scenes. There were some unique ideas here, but overall the book was just okay for me.
This is a book about dreams, the strongest and most well formed of which take on their own personalities and lives. Narrated by Fang, a nightmare that is all about the chase, and the gnashing teeth in the dark that you cannot escape, Sweet Dreams Are Made of Teeth is an ethereal journey of self discovery.
What I loved most about this book was the fact that almost all of the dream and nightmare characters were never quite defined. As an example, Fang himself, changes form as required, sometimes walking on all fours, sometimes on only two legs. Sometimes he has hands to pull and grasp. He can be as small as a household pet, or larger than a doorway.
The same can be said about the world these characters inhabit. This dream world is constantly changing, affected both by the dreams living there, and also by the whims of dreamers, who can shape things at will. The reader is given only the barest hint of an explanation of the rules and workings of this place, and yet the writing works so well to describe the plot but let your imagination fill in the detail.
I adored this book and I will be checking out Richard Roberts other works as a priority.
