Publisher's Summary

A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. She's not his mother. He's not her child. Together they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.

Fever Dream is a nightmare come to life, a ghost story for the real world, a love story and a cautionary tale. One of the freshest new voices to come out of the Spanish language and translated into English for the first time, Samanta Schweblin creates an aura of strange psychological menace and otherworldly reality in this absorbing, unsettling, taut novel.

What the Critics Say

"A wonderful nightmare of a book: tender and frightening, disturbing but compassionate. Fever Dream is a triumph of Schweblin's outlandish imagination." (Juan Gábriel Vasquez, author of The Sound of Things Falling and Reputations)

    Story
    "If you need resolution you won't find it."

    This book defys description, I hate a book where when it is over everyone who reads it will have a different idea about what happened. This book I guess was not for me, but I was interested in the fact that it was translated and the author is Argentinian. I suppose there could be cultural differences as to why I don't understand it. I'm not really a fan of magical realism, but I do like stretching my mind by reading books written in other countries in other languages.

    Story
    "Wtf did I just listen to?"

    I didn't understand or like this story. The narrator was annoying. Don't waste your money.

    If anyone would like to explain this to me, I would welcome it.

    Story
    "Poorly Translated and Narrator Made it Confusing"

    The book synopsis drew me in. The translation was odd and made some passages jagged...and Nina's stuffed mole?

    The strange en medius res start to the story sounds Julio Cortozar...but the plot goes nowhere. There is no aha moment that makes it fall into place...it just sizzles out. It was narrated by an androgynous voice that attempted to narrate two parts, David and Amanda...but it was difficult to distinguish between the two. I felt as though I was the one with a fever dream.

    Very disappointed.
