The Dreamers, Karen Walker Thompson


Warning: this book will be superglued to your hand. You won’t be able to put it down. You think you’ll be able to stop at a chapter, but you won’t. You’ll be compelled to keep reading.

I’m not sure I’ve completely processed The Dreamers. I’m also pissed that I let it sit unread on my shelf for so long. What I do know is that this is a story that will stick with me and make me continually question dreams and life.

There were a lot of characters, but I felt invested with every single one. I needed to know how each of their stories ended. That’s what kept me turning the pages… I had to know who had the sickness, who woke up, who dreamed and what they dreamt of, who didn’t make it. I found myself holding my breath for several pages at a time.

The Dreamers is a freaking masterpiece of a mind f*#+. If you haven’t read it, you need to. Like yesterday. Don’t be a fool like me and let it sit on your bookshelf neglected for months.
