Sarah is a narcoleptic who has dreams so vivid she mistakes them for real events; Robert has his life changed forever by the misunderstandings arising from her condition; Terry, the insomniac, spends his wakeful nights fuelling his obsession with movies; and the increasingly unstable Dr Gregory Dudden sees sleep as a life-shortening disease which must be eradicated...A group of students sharing a house. They fall in and out of love, they drift apart. Yet a decade later they are drawn back together by a series of coincidences involving their obsession with sleep - and each other.

    " Read this a few years ago, I loved it the way he plots his stories, having read a few more of his books since I realise he always does this. "

    " Never have so many coincidences combined in one book to create one totally implausible story. I found the novel highly readable, and enjoyable. The characters were however all rather odd - the manic movie critic who never sleeps, the love lorn puppy who changes sex to attract the lesbian girl of his dreams, the nutty psychiatrist - and I laughed out loud several times. The mis-edited movie magazine article was brilliant! "

    " I really liked this book, it was well written and neat. Every bit of the plot was there for a reason and tied together with something else but without feeling forced. Gave the impression of a very balanced and well thought out novel. "

    " I read this book in Italian years ago. The book is really well written and I can still remember the feeling of being completely immersed in the plot. For a while I could not understand whether I had dreamed of it,if I had hard the story on the radio, or if someone had told me about it... Magic! "

    " Terrible, could not get into any of the one dimensional characters and cared less for their respective fates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mighelon | 11/16/2010

    " E' un libro con molte coincidenze, che narra gli intrecci delle vite di alcuni studenti e di loro stessi 13 anni dopo, il tutto con il sonno a fare da sottosfondo. Si accenna a temi importanti, ma con uno stile leggero, in alcuni passi si ride, ma fa riflettere. "
