There is a dream that Steve keeps having. And like all dreams, vivid though they are, the details seem a bit fuzzy sometimes, and hard to pin down. Steve wants desperately to fill in details of this dream, as he is traveling to the west, away from the gray, depressive skies of his home.
Thankfully, there is hope and help. There is a special room- The Room- that allows Steve to piece together, direct, and sometimes transform a dream into a vibrant reality. It is a room where anything is possible, where the room and the person begin the change– for better or worse– permanently.
I won’t lie- this book irritated me at first. The structure and plot seemed so haphazard and disjointed that it was a difficult read for the first half of the book. But then, slowly, things started to fall and click into place when I realized (rather late in the game I’m afraid) that everything was being seen from Steve’s perspective and his perspective and reality didn’t always match up.
At times vibrant and surreal, or cold and detached, The Dream Room allows the reader to gain insight into the world that is slightly off-kilter from our own, but no less real to those who are able to see it.
I imagine that many readers will at first be frustrated with the book, as I was, but it does have a quiet, disturbing brilliance about it when taken as a whole. While I don’t see it as a masterful read, it is certainly a bold step into the world of the mind and dreams.
