I appreciate writings from all genres but this book was a huge disappointment for me. First there were several places where the story just seemed to drag on. It reminded me of how in High School when faced with a 500 word essay but I only had say 200 solid words, I would babble on n on about the topic just to fill that space. I got the feeling this writer did the same thing.
Whats sad about this is the idea of the book is a great one! A guy who goes to a sleep lab and starts having issues with the real world versus dreaming. Great idea but the author just never went anywhere significant with this idea!
But what really made me say " I must write a review " was the ending. In a word it was "crap". I was so angry that after hours of reading this book it ended as it did. I will not ruin it for those of you who will try to endure reading this book despite any reviews ( I tend to do the same thing myself).
I was so angry by the ending I cursed!
So needless to say I would not recommend this book. In fact I really should have given it a 1 star but I felt bad about doing that.... read at your own risk....
The coordinator of the study takes quite a shine to Todd. He quickly becomes their "Star Patient" because of his ability to achieve lucidity, a dream state where you are aware you are dreaming and can subsequently control certain aspects of your dream.
As the study progresses, Todd begins to have some eerie, inexplicable side effects, out-of-body-experiences. With no answers from the doctor, he brushes them off. Eventually the study progresses and Todd is asked if he would be willing to undergo another experiment; allow them to take an MRI of his brain while he is in this lucid state of dreaming so they can attempt to map what a dream really is. The risks are minimal and the contribution to science immeasurable, so he agrees. Things take a deadly turn.
The rest you'll have to read for yourself. This story was unique, interesting, scientifically sound, and unpredictable. I really wish it had been longer, although my family was happy when I finished, so I would stop ignoring them :)
There were some situations that were more mature in nature, so I wouldn't recommend letting your 13 year old read this one, but older Teens, absolutely, College-aged-without a doubt. My personal favorite was the ending. I had a feeling what was coming, but I REALLY had no clue of the depth and magnitude of the labyrinth-like surprise!
Huge thanks to the author, Bonnie Rozanski, for sending me a copy of this amazing adventure! I sincerely enjoyed every sentence!
