Publisher's Summary

The eagerly awaited new novel from the author of The Age of Miracles.

Imagine a world where sleep could trap you for days, for weeks, months.... A world where you could even die of sleep rather than in your sleep.

Karen Thompson Walker's second novel is stunning, the story of a Californian town's epidemic of perpetual sleep.

Critic Reviews

"The Dreamers is harrowing, riveting, profoundly moving, and beautifully written. In a word, this book is stunning." (Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven)

"A modern Midsummer Night’s Dream...In this wonderful novel, Walker paints a haunting canvas exploring time, memory, consciousness, and youth." (Marisha Pessl, author of Night Film)

"Frighteningly powerful, beautiful, and uncanny, The Dreamers is a love story and also a horror story - a symphonic achievement, alternating intimate moments with a panoramic capture of a crisis in progress." (Karen Russell, author of Vampires in the Lemon Grove: And Other Stories

Oh for the love of god

Exhausting read. I’ve never slogged through so many wildly unnecessary adjectives in my life. The only reason I didn’t throw this book out the window in frustration is because it’s for book club.

lacking substance

This could have been so much more. The characterisations were shallow and lacked depth. the narration was almost insipidly nasal. The story.ine could have been really explored and more interesting. overall it did not live up to other reviews.
