Imagine you could visit a world where everything was exactly the way you wanted; where you had it all to yourself and where everything was possible. And imagine if all you had to do to get there was to sleep.
Would you ever want to wake up?
Welcome to Dreamland.
This book caught me off guard, I'm not gonna lie. After finishing it, I couldn't stop thinking about it. It is a ghost story, suspense novel that had me all turned around. At one point, I didn't know who to believe to be the good guy and who to be the bad guy. Now THAT is good writing!
I spent the entire time on the edge of my seat, anxious for young Louie to understand what was going on. I think I was literally muttering to myself, Come on, Louie, don't do this.
When everything seemed lost, there was more to the story. I even got teary eyed at the end.
All I can say is, the book was awesome. It is only 158 pages in print from Amazon, therefore PERFECT for light reading.
There were times I could tell the text was translated, because certain things I would've said differently, but this did NOT take anything away from the essence of the story. In my opinion, it actually added to the story, reminding me that it was taking place in Europe.
The end came together, answering all of my questions and providing closure to the reader.
To rate it... I'd give it 5 stars. Why? Because I can easily read this book again.
It is free on amazon May 4th. If you miss the giveaway, you can still get it free if you are a Kindle Unlimited member. Otherwise, $7.99 in the U.S. And trust me, it's worth the read.
