    Well I don’t know where to start Do I start by saying I hated all the characters? The authors writing style? The empty shallow ridiculous conclusion? Nah I’ll just say skip this bs book 👎🏼

    It starts off menacing enough with a prologue meant to grab your interest it may did for me and then moves along with freuent mentions of a class trip to New Orleans where something terrible happened something nobody wants to talk about any Turns out someone was murdered shocker i know and the group of kids including the teacher swore never to tell anyone what happened Unfortunately for everyone involved when they got back home one by one they start having nightmares and one by one they start killing other students This is the part that kind of lost me i mean i know it would be terrible if i woke up to find out i had drowned someone in the ocean but there's no real threat directly aimed to the main characters throughout the book well except at the end of course I just never felt like any of them would die or were in trouble because they weren't Only unimportant barely mentioned characters get bumped off And of course the one character from the group that does get killed is done so by lighting himself on fire he was just paranoid never in real danger He was also the least developed and most uninteresting of them allAnd then there's the final twist I mean i can't say i saw it coming because i didn't and it was a nice change of pace to have something unexpected i just did not fully see the character's motivation to do this to all of her fellow students Yeah she was troubled and having an affair with the teacher whatever i just felt there could have been a better reason for her to want to murder half her class But the way she did cause the sleepwalking was really neat through hypnosis using this old projection machine with character's names etched into creepy old paintings Sure its completely implausible but it sure is niftySo it's a pretty uick read that is hampered down by a unfortunately uninteresting take on the I Know What You Did Last Summer story a group of uninteresting characters and a meandering plot that never really feels like it actually goes anywhere especially anywhere interesting I'd give it a 25 if i could but i cant and i'm not feeling generous today A 2 out of 5

    Isn’t the cover amazing It caught my eye right away and I couldn’t wait to dive into the story But in the end I was disappointed with many aspects of the book but in love with other partsI’ve found that most horror novels I read start off horribly They’re incredibly boring and I have to force myself to read the book Sleepless was no exception Even right now trying to write this review I can’t remember what the first half of the book was about I just read it I did soak up the main details and the important plot points but nothing else really mattered I just wanted something scary to happen Also I was not a fan of the way the novel switched between telling the present and telling the past and the dreams I found it to be choppy and confusingThat being said the last half of the book was amazing It was scary with great twists everything that should be in a good horror novel Best of all it was very fast paced nothing that was unneeded happened Also Fahy’s descriptive writing which I had found long and annoying in the beginning was greatly appreciated during the ending because it brought the story to lifeEven though it took me a day to read the first 100 pages and an hour to read the last 100 I did enjoy the novel The ending was enough to redeem the book in my opinion What do you guys think did you like the book?Check out my book review blog at wwwanibelleblogspotcom

    This book is about four teens who join this class Then the pictures do some kind of voodoo type thing and make them kill people in their class or just people they dont like Emma and jake end up having this thing Emma is trying to figure out whats happening to everyone she finds out that caitlin is behind all the killings The killings are very graphic you can tell just by reading how gross the deaths are there was this kid who is on the football team and his nickname is hicky stevens beacuse he gives like every girl hickies This one girl who hates him She sleepwalks then she finds him at the train station where the class is and she pushes him over the edge right in front of a train He dies Duncan sets himself on fire because he kept dreaming about killing lily the girl he likes Lily goes insaine JakeEmmaCaitlinDuncan and Lily try staying up all night when they start sleepwalkingnightmares Emma and Jake end up sleeping in the same bed then they end up making out Dr Beecher ends up dead in the end of the book because Caitlin stabs him and hits him in the junkI thougth this book was really good It was a good read You could read that book in days It was graphic and fun to read I would recommend people read the book

    BEFORE I found Sleepless in the school library after being told that we're doing a project in english involving reading a book No big deal The cover is amazing Kind of cliche but it makes you think So a girl is wearing those eye cover things you use to sleep sometimes and there's blood streaming out from behind it EW At 209 pages this book is a bit shorter than I usually read but this is for a class so I didn't want to pick too big a book just in case I didn't like it Because either way I still have to read it So it's best that it's shortI have high hopes for this book I'm hoping that it will be scary yet not too gory It's hard to find a good bookmovie that knows how to differentiate between the two So I know by the blurb that Emma the main character starts having dreams and she kills people in her sleep Then people in her school start to have the dreams too and kill people They have to work together to stop themselves from killing anyone else

    It seems to me that YA horror books are either good original or using tropes in new ways or bad stuffed with clichés like a Thanksgiving turkey It’s difficult to find books that go beyond the low budget horror films kind of suck Sleepless was not one of those books It just wasn’t very goodThe New Orleans backstory where the starting point of all that ensues was not fleshed out enough I wasn’t comfortable with the fact that it was right after hurricane Katrina and the whole cliché of evil Voodoo magic was brought up It just came across cheap and disrespectfulAs for the characters I disliked them all Didn’t care about who died or who lived shrug The romance was highly annoying Jake and EmmaI could have crawled into this book just to murder them bothJake is your typical pothead and drug dealer He’s failing out of high school No direction whatsoever in life besides wanting to sleep with the pretty Emma And Emma likes him too I don’t understand why but 99% of the time she’s thinking about him Everybody else is dying but who cares right? He admits he thinks he killed a girl on the beach considering he woke up with sand all in his clothes and bedbut does this bother her? NopeTeens are dying under mysterious circumstances and this is her train of thought“Why won’t he touch me like that? Emma keeps asking herself”Not only that but she had some petty reasons to hate another girl The list was things like big breasts blonde hair and blue eyes perfect body and “putting the moves on Jake Hardale” I know girls can be petty to the point of childishnessbut in all my days of disliking someone it was not because of their breast size or hair color Emma retracts some of this once she gets to know the other girl a little but it’s painfully obvious that a dude is trying to write girls and it just didn't work The only character with any real depth is Jake even then it’s not much besides getting high and hoping to bang EmmaIf you’re looking for a good horror book to read this is not it So underwhelming from beginning to end

    I liked the book I wanted to give it five stars but there was a loose end that I just could not standThe loose end waas the whole Jake and Emma situation I just love it when you get a book and in the blurb it doesn't mention anything about romance and then in the book there is some smoochy smoochy or something So Jake and Emma both like each other and they hooked up in Jake's room before and yeah And that's it They like each other still and worry about each other but nothing else happens I mean they were in abed making out with each other for heavens sake And I know that there was stuff going on in their lives but I can't stop worrying abput what happens between them afterSometimes in the book when it is in dream seuence I am confused Like not in all of the dreams but in some of the dreams I barely have any clue to what is going on Maybe I was reading too fast or just not paying attention or something but I dunno BlehyI KNEW IT I KNEW IT I had a feeling that person was making everything happen I had a bad vibe coming from himher I never like himher Blehy THAT PERSON'S AN EXSPIRED BURRITOI give tribute to all those people who died in the book because honestly they didn't deserve to die A moment of silence pleaseYou ever notice that sometimes when you read a book and the book gives off this book like smell You just breathe it in and sigh Not because it stinks or something but because the smell relaes you or makes you feel good The copy of this book that I had had that smell AhSo yeah here's my review I seem to notice that my review now a days seem to just really talk about what happens in the books and not about the writing itself so let us say someting about thatHmmmThis book had very grown up words DPeace

    Being a horror fan I was impelled to pick up this book The whole concept made me think it was like A Nightmare on Elm Street but it had a different twist to it Instead of being killed in your sleep the dreamers themselves are the killers When they wake up they have no recollection of what happened until they're left with a little hint at where they might've been and what they've done I liked the book but I thought there could've been a little added to it This book leaves you with some uestions that go unanswered the whole time I feel as if I was intrigued by the relationship between Emma and Jake Any less of the horror involved would've made it just another love story between some troubled teensAll of the characters except Emma were way too underdeveloped Most of the book talks about Emma's past and her life in general Readers don't really get a chance to relate with any of the other characters Personally the book was lacking in the horrorgore parts so I would have liked to see of that Those parts of the book weren't as descriptive as I would've liked but for others it could have been the perfect amount Although there was a shock element at the end of the book the rest of the book was pretty dull It was still a good and uick read nonetheless

    Someone else will die soon she tells herself Someone else will die and I'll be responsibleA group of teenagers in high school are in a club They all have one thing in common They all went to volunteer in New Orleans Something happens and it is making some of them sleepwalk This story is told through Emma and Jake Each chapter is told through their point of view The premise hooked me but I was a little iffy about reading this book because some of the reviews said it wasn't scary I went into this book thinking I won't be scared but halfway in I got spooked This may not be the case for most of you but if you are scared easily beware Sons of HypnosThe gods who bring dreams into the worldBring us restview spoilerThe ending of this book sorta leaves as a cliffhanger Yes the culprit has been found but Emma is even shaken after all the event unfold for her It started off as Jake being scared of his dreams and now it ends with Emma being scared I guess this adds to the suspense Overall this was a 45 for me Thomas Fahy knows how to write a good suspense and this book has the suspense but if only he kept the suspense building up until the end then this book would have been a 55 for me It was close but not close enough hide spoiler

    Gets one star because I stopped reading and skimmed the rest of the book I feel really disappointed in this book because the premise sounded great and the cover is beautifully haunted I was hoping for a good horror novel I simply couldn't get past the third person present tense voice that jumps from narrator to narrator and the tell don't show descriptions The choppy disjointed sentences really kept me from getting involved in the book From page 7Jake Hardale likes old cars Everything about themHe likes his job than school that's for sure But Saint Opportuna High isn't the worst place in the world Some of the girls are hot Especially Emma Montgomery Sure she's a total nerd always studying and carrying around a book but still she's hotBlugh Then the book gets into some New Orleans Voodoo nonsense and it completely lost me VoodooVodouVoudon et al is a real religion that involves ancestor worship and particularly in Haitian Voodoo is tied to Roman Catholicism I'm not a big fan of raising yet another generation to have misconceptions and racist fears about a religion Anyway I would ignore that if the plot made sense andor the book was good
