Welcome to Thursday all

Hey all I hope this Thursday finds you all well and reading something fantastic. I know I have just finished 3 books. Blame the storm that rolled in last night, a power outage at 3 in the morning, a kindle paper white and two big ass dogs crawling into bed with you. Its the perfect early morning  to read . Todays book is a great book . THE EXPERIMENT OF DREAMS by Brandon Zenner

Benjamin Walker’s lifelong career of testing experimental drugs and medicines, as well as participating in fascinating sleep-related studies, has come to an end. A new and lucrative job opportunity is offered to Ben—working on a project named Lucy, a machine capable of reading and recording a person’s dreams in intimate detail. Headed by the genius Dr. Peter Wulfric and privately funded by the elusive millionaire, Mr. Timothy Kalispell—a man with a fascination of the arts that borders on the obsessive—takes Ben all over the world, from the Louvre in Paris to the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
Along his travels, Ben meets a beautiful girl named Sophia, who might just help him overcome his crushing depression over the death of his lost love, his Emily. All is finally going well for Ben . . . until strange dreams of a town named Drapery Falls begin to plague him, and memories once hidden begin to reveal themselves. The doctors and staff onboard team Lucy are not who Ben thinks they are, and Mr. Kalispell will stop at nothing to keep Ben’s emerging memories buried for good. Ben is put on a collision course that will bring him to the brink of total insanity, and perhaps even death. At the heart of it all, Ben’s worst enemy is his own mind, and he must confront his past in order to save his future.

  I was really looking for something different to read and boy howdy did I find it in this book.
  Say hello to Benjamin Walker. A man who suffers from severe migraines . He has become a trial drug testing junkie.  When his drug trial comes to an end . Ben is offered a very lucrative opportunity to help out in a trial called Lucy. Which he happily signs up for
  Along comes Sophia will she be able to help him with his migraines, and help get him over his loss of his wife Emily. Life is good for Ben right now. Until the a mysterious town keeps popping up in his dreams. People aren't who they seem to be and no one is going to help him . He is on a collision course with insanity. Will anyone help him come back from the edge. Will he survive confronting his past in order to save his future . I sure hope so
   If you ever have been intrigued by what the mind can do and comprehend. This is the book for you. The way Brandon takes through the agony of what Ben is going through , the agony of loosing his wife at such a young age. The not being able to let her go.  The twists and turns in this novel will take you one way then do a 180 and go in the other direction. You see the frailties of humans along with the greediness of big tech firms . Its kind a scary how easily they can get their way into the lives of people.
   You can't trust anyone in this book . poor Ben can't even trust his own mind at one point as the doctors push him to the brink of insanity. They don't help him when his memories start to surface about a small town. Ben is a lost trapped soul, that these men are just using to further their ideals and their greed.
  This is a great first novel for this gentleman. But I am hoping it will not be the last, This book has such a good plot with some great turns and sub plots. The characters are so well written , you can feel their angst and you know you just want to help Ben come back from the edge.
 Trust me when you read this book you will not know who to trust and really isn't that part of the fun. Admit it ladies, we all love a great mystery. I know I do .
  So if you like the book of Micheal Crichton, this is the book for you . It has all the intrigue and mystery that involve the tech world, Check this book out please cause I will say it is one that should be read. This I hope is the first of many books from this author .
