Lucidity. A museum for dreams. Maury Bennet is a psychologist and psychopath, who can remove dreams from people's heads. Nolan Gage is a desperate father funding a project. Kevin, a victim of horrible crime plagued by a monster...
I admit I was skeptical of this book at first.With the introduction of a mad scientist and a mad millionaire funding a mad zoo... I wondered if this was going to somehow resemble a retelling of Jurassic Park (it did a little, but Kevin fixed it).
Kevin: how could one kid's childhood be so awful? Its like a train wreck, you can't look away from. Parental lies, marital collapse, murder(s), no wonder he has nightmares. And he's not like typical child heroes, who are instinctively innocent, just, and brave; this kid is scared. He's scared and he's angry and he feels guilty, and he doesn't know the right thing he just knows he has to do something.
And the ending. A bit of a twist at the end what with Maury and--------------No just kidding, I'm not going to spoil it. Because I did like this book. The creepy doctor, Mr. Freak, and Kevin, are characters that made the story enjoyable, even if the plot needed to be a little more polished.
