The Dreamers

The Dreamers - Karen Thompson Walker

by Karen Thompson Walker

 

I've been caught out once again by a book written in present tense. Why, oh why is this a thing?

 

The story is about a strange virus that makes people fall asleep and not wake up, but remain dreaming. It was an interesting premise, but because present tense is so difficult to read I couldn't really get into the story.

 

Some interesting ideas in there, but it's just not for me.
