Just One More Chapter

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

The Master of Dreams

The Master of Dreams - Mike Resnick

Hmmmm... this is a difficult book to review. On the one hand: the writing was good, the MC was snarky (almost always a plus), there were multiple worlds visited (another surefire point in its favor), the secondary and tertiary characters were engaging and fun and the world(s) building was solid.

 

On the other hand: the answers sought after in the different worlds (like who was the Dream Master in each world) were easy to suss out. The antagonist was not only wimpy but obtuse to boot. I loved the different incarnations of Lisa/Ilsa... The main questions (why all of this was happening to our protagonist and who exactly was Eddie Raven?) still remain unanswered leaving wiggle room for book #2. Even though we got to visit, and lucid dream through multiple worlds, the pacing felt a bit sluggish at times.

 

Overall:

I enjoyed this light romp through multiple dream worlds a lot more than I thought I would after reading the first couple of chapters... so if you are floundering a bit, hang on, it gets better.

 

~ Enjoy
