This book captured me with its fast-paced plot and realistic characters. Reminding me of recent novels by Stephen King, the mystery and masterful use of suspense kept me entertained.
Meet Ben, the main character and immediately feel heart broken. A man making his living through testing and sleep experiments, Ben feels every needle prick and remembers the pain of losing his wife. Supplementing his income through the occasional gig as a bartender, he remembers just recently being on top of the world. Married, bar owner and in love with both he was devastated when his wife and bar were taken from him too soon.
Ben’s only friend was his doctor conducting the tests and when he advised Ben their time together was done his world changed for the stranger. Being referred to another doctor for more in depth testing, Ben soon found himself not needing the occasional shift at the bar and exploring the world one grande museum at a time, all expenses paid.
But what goes up must come down and for Ben, it came crashing down hard. No longer sure if he was moving on from Emily or protecting himself from the pain, not knowing if life was reality or a continuation of the dream he was having and with almost constant migraines he was in trouble.
Enjoy this fast paced adventure of dreamland mixed with heartbreaking reality to know how Ben escapes this nightmare.
