So Poet Anderson...of Nightmares is not necessarily a book I would immediately pick up...but it should be. This was such a cool story and well written plot. This book is different and definitely worth the read. I love Suzanne Young’s writing and so that shouldn’t be a surprise for me and of course Tom DeLonge. It’s like a power team.
I love anything that involves dreams and the possibility of controlling your dreams. I’m a vivid dreamer myself and even read in my dreams. So this book made me even more intrigued. Like not only is it cool but it made want to pull out dream studies and do some research. I love any book that can trigger that in me.
The world building is fantastic. You have these different types of dreamers. You have the lucid dreamers, the dreamwalkers and the poets. They all have these different levels of how they can manipulate and control dreams. This concept of the poets leading lost dreamers to a safe place is so cool. I just loved it. It kept me turning the pages because I had to know more, I was completely absorbed.
I loved Jonas as the main character. I find that I don’t often read male leads anymore and this book made me realize how sad that is. Jonas is not only a fun character to read but he also has some great character development. He is very family oriented but we meet him at a spot where he is having to stand on his own two feet. It’s not bad that his brother and him did everything together but I liked going through the motions of becoming his own person with him.
The side characters are great. I don’t even want to talk about them because I don’t want to give anything away.
So basically this is that book that I’m telling you to check out and read. You’ll be awed by it’s awesomeness and really great creative plot. Don’t let the cover scare you...okay so the cover totally freaks me out when I look at it and when you read…..well just read it.
