    This was magic Highly recommend, but for a very specific audience If you enjoy having tons of characters that you don t necessarily get time to connect with or like and appreciate a vague, mysterious tone through to the endget to it 4.5 stars.

    These days, science doesn t take much interest in dreams. 2 stars I m rating this purely based on my personal enjoyment and connection with the narrative Some people are going to love this book I read Walker s The Age of Miracles than six years ago, didn t love it, but wanted to give her another try I know my tastes have changed Maybe even the author had changed, too As it turns out, my review

    This narrative style From the first paragraph I knew I was going to be so pulled into this story, whatever it was going to be, by the writing There is something about it, the way Karen Thompson Walker tells this story It s third person narrative and I felt removed as if I was watching this on film or on the stage but at the same time there s an intimacy that affords the reader a connection to these characte

    It is much harder for me to write a review of a book that I did not like rather than one I loved I do not usually read science fiction fantasy or whatever genre this would be assigned to but the reviews were so good for this novel I decided to give it a try Possible spoilers The premise is not a new one There have been many books written and movies made of a virus or some alien illness infecting humans and maki

    An epidemic of perpetual sleep strikes a small town Many are trapped not by a captor, but by their own slumber I was captivated immediately from page one A frightful opening made me ever so curious to read onThis author s writing style was mesmerizing and magical I was absorbed in her words and the fictional town in California Literary fiction at its best without needless side stories or wasted dialogue The story f

    3.5 We sleep in order to forget Sadly I didn t love this as much as everyone else seems to It looked like it would be right up my street a strange illness overcomes a small town in California and people are falling asleep, not waking up for anything But unfortunately I was still left disappointed.The Dreamers follows a collection of characters constantly flicking between them From the college students where the

    Confession time I m a total hypochondriac I don t watch medical shows, because I ve convinced myself I m dying of things it s medically impossible for me to contract I caught a bad cold two days after finishing The Stand , and I was convinced the end was near I m a mess.Needless to say, it might not have been the best idea to finish Karen Thompson Walker s The Dreamers just before bed, but luckily I m here to tel

    Me Liking a sci fi book It s true And no, I did not undergo electric shock therapy This book is almost pogo stick worthy, it s so damn good I don t even know what category this book fits into To me, it s not pure sci fi, really Is there such a thing as disaster books, like there are disaster movies Because that s what it is It s not about aliens or weird gadgets it s about a virus, a sleeping sickness, that takes over a college to

    4 genre spanning stars The Dreamers is a different sort of read for me, and I m grateful I read it The premise A disease is affecting a college town causing unstoppable sleep and vividly strange dreams It all starts at a university in Southern California when a student, Kara, falls asleep and no one can rouse her, not her roommate, Mei, and not even the doctors at the hospital That event is then followed by another student, and then a
