A very different way of telling a story in novel format, Lee literally tells us who S. is through the characters in [xxx] dreams. What’s different about this novel is that, like our dreams and nightmares, it doesn’t always make complete sense nor does it give enough details in relation to the characters.

I did find myself more aware of the author, an acquaintance of mine, and the world of creativity behind a whole new world of story telling.

Overall the book, the story, the concept intrigued me and sort of has me wondering what comes next. As well as what actually was.

Dreams are a tricky topic, as you know, but this collection was very well written and each chapter was short enough that had you wanting more. What I did find missing was a concrete cliff hanger but as this was an unusual read for me I am very glad I read it, learned from it and now want to share it with you.

I also want to share Lee Thompson, its author, with you and will be interviewing him on my site in the next few months. Please stop by to see who my author of the month is any time!

As he clearly shares:

In which the author attempts to create, using only his dreams (obsessive on subject), a story through the after-image. In which the author decides to stand back and say here, with as little conscious interference as possible, is what happens when love fractures.

Is this fiction or non-fiction? Biography or autobiography? Prose or poetry?

-Lee Thompson

As always, thanks for reading,

Sarah Butland
