A virus created for biological warfare is overtaking humanity, threatening the very fabric of society as its victims are transported, by the emotional power of music, to a seductive dream world. Francis Lanier is one of the few ""stalkers"", a person who is immune to the virus and is able to travel through its dream world in order to rescue others. The book follows him through a series of adventures, as he becomes more embroiled in the politics surrounding the virus and its cure.
This is a fascin
This book had a very intriguing concept of a virus causing those infected to be transported to an imaginary dream world. I enjoyed reading bout Francis who could go between the "real" world and the dream world and found the book to be an interesting experience.

I found it fascinating because it is in many ways quite similar to a story I am now writing, and I wanted to see what Cook did with his story that might help (or hinder) with mine. Other than that, I don't have much to add to the former reviewers.
Take a world that is falling apart, greedy conspiracies and a very unusual disease that causes you to physically teleport into your own dream world and you have a very imaginative and unusual story. Well worth the read.
