"LUCID Nightmare” packs a whole lotta story for such a short book (it comes in at just under 100 pages), and is an intelligent, well-written story that held on to my attention the entire time. I was almost disappointed when it was over, but the ending was like, “whoa” and I wish there was more! I liked how everything was connected in ways we didn’t see at first, and personally I wish the nightmare part started a bit sooner – I know the backstory of Clay’s life and problems were important, but the real action was in the nightmare part of the book, I believe. The author says that it is based on real events and names the title of the book in the book “LUCID Nightmare” as well (how meta) and the author/main character share the same name (Clay). So in that regard this book is very unique and more impactful than just a typical ‘horror’ or ‘ghost’ story. It wasn’t predictable at all, though, and I appreciated the originality, especially for being in a genre where so many books seem the same. This one had a fresh, distinctive flavor to it and was entertaining to read and experience.
