Superlative fiction! Snooze: A Story of Awakening tells the captivating ‘coming-of-age’ tale of Max Diver (aka ‘Snooze’) as he accepts and explores his ability to travel in his dreams and ventures on a quest to rescue his astronaut father.
Engrossing, entertaining and occasionally humorous, Snooze also takes a look at a wide range of subjects including levitation, telepathy, lucid dreaming, spirit animals, parallel universes and shamanic like journeying; giving a wide range of information effortlessly absorbed as you enjoy the story as well as much food for thought should you want it. Fortunately it’s a fair size book; larger than the average paperback and 486 pages – although time certainly ‘flew by’ for me when reading it.
Author, Sol Luckman, says that (like me) his earliest dreams were lucid ones of flying and these exhilarating dreams still occur for him today. The writing in Snooze is equally animated and I enjoyed every minute of Max’s adventure as, with the support of friends, he ‘awakens’ to the life-changing reality of his dreams and accepts who he is.
The book says it’s aimed at ‘Teen and up’ age wise but I’m 58 and enjoyed every minute of it – it’s written in a highly accessible style but sufficiently articulate to keep the most discriminating reader engrossed.
Highly original fiction with more than a dash of the otherworld; well-developed characters, both male and female; excellent adventures, heart-warming conclusion and lots of wonderful ideas – what is there not to like? Highly recommended, a must read and I’m definitely going to look out for more from this author!
