Book of Dreams

Book of Dreams, Davis Bunn, Howard Books, Fiction/Suspense, October 4, 2011, 352 pages.

Synopsis: For Dr. Elena Burroughs, life is divided into two chapters—before and after the death of her husband. Today marks the point that her span of being a wife is equal to her span of being a widow. Even her success as a psychologist and her worldwide acclaim for a book on the interpretation of dreams is dimmed by an unspoken If only. Then a new patient arrives, one so private only her first name is given. Impeccably dressed and escorted by two bodyguards, Sandra recounts a frightening series of recurrent nightmares. Elena agrees to consider her case more carefully, convinced that something ominous may be at work here. Elena's interpretation of her dreams confirms that, indeed, the new patient and her family confront a powerful global network of dangerous forces. As the story unfolds, they face a key question of the Christian life: How do you understand and fulfill the will of God?

My thoughts: This isn't what I would call an action book. It was boring occasionally, but had an underlying tension that kept me going. The focus was more on dreams and government proceedings.

Only a few characters were developed well, while many were simply plastic players. They didn't drag me in.

Mr. Bunn still has great writing skill, however. That was key in the enjoyment of the book. I've never read a style like his, and it makes me curious about his other books. He knows how to craft a situation and a setting.

This book was provided free by the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.

My rating: 4 stars
