Loved this series. It sucked me in and I couldnt stop reading it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the ending. Seriously. Not entirely a cliff hanger. But what is Janie and Cabels agreement? What happens with Janies mom? There are so many unanswered questions.
Wow, um... Okay so this book is kinda,sorta perfect. The balance of genres was amazing. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone.
This is a fast read, with a unique format.
Janie keeps falling into the dreams of her classmates, neighbors, and friends. She doesn't know why she gets sucked into others dreams and she doesn't know how to stop it. Janie doesn't know her father, but her mother is more of a dependent than a mother leaving Janie feeling alone with her fears.
Cabel is interested in Janie, but is in the middle of something important.

An author's purpose to writing a book is never clearly explained, but can only be assumed. This book was written to give romance, humor, and embarrassment to any high school student of this century. The author definitely wrote this book for staged in this century, since there is a lot of high school boyfriend/girlfriend drama, homework, drugs, alcohol, and the bullies that are always looking to humiliate people.
The theme of this book is to always keep trying to figure out what is going on arou
These three books were really good. I must admit though, the first one had me kind of confused in some parts. I didn't quite understand if Cabel was a cop, or he was a drug dealer but then they went to the police station and I got it, but the so call Captain said something about TV, guess now it was a joke, but the thing is it isn't exactly explained. That's the thing about these books, some things are just unexplained, which is ok because it's a type of plot and I get it, but it gave me the ide ...more

Okay, how to start?? Oh I know let's start with the fact that the writing format just wasn't my cup of tea. I've seen some people like that. Okay, there are more ways than one to do something.

I still can't get over how unique the idea is! I just hate the storyline. The whole being a dream catcher was cool until Lisa decided to execute weird things- not Tim burton weird. A bad weird.

Quick read for sure. I read one book each day, therefore finishing the trilogy in three days. I think it has the perfect balance of supernatural and romance. Janie and Cabel keep things good for the romance community and Janie's unique gift with dreams keep things good for the supernatural community without getting so far out there I get disinterested. My favorite kind of supernatural is ones that almost feel like it could really happen. Nothing to extravagant that you're just like get outta tow ...more

For me, this trilogy is simple but still great. The book gives the different definition of having an extraordinary ability. So many books thoughts to be a vampire/half-human is a nicest thing to do with the complexion of the lover character that manage the desire of turning. But, I need to appreciate the book to tell that it's not easy to have a super power of ability that no normal humans have. The best highlight point of this trilogy is every choice there must be risks. And well, not very expe ...more
I was sooooo confused!

In fact, my brain was so boggled, I quit halfway through the book :(

Yes, I am slightly ashamed to admit this ^^^. But I was so frustrated, and annoyed with the characters. I kept waiting for some sort of plot or character development to occur, and it just DIDN'T. So I refuse to read anymore. My rule is: if a story can't catch my interest by halfway through it, the book does not deserve to be read.

On the bright side, the whole 'dream catcher' idea was cool, and I love Carrie
Sophia Chen
I was really confuse with this trilogy. The first book was just... Terrible. I could not describe how many times I was just thinking, "what the heck???" I really did not need to know how big Carrie's boobs were in Melinda's dream. The second book was a lot better, but the first book made me wary about what else was going to be in this series. By far, the best book in the trilogy was Fade, where she had to investigate the sexual predator. The series finally had some kind of direction, and I under ...more

3.5 stars.
Now down to my review, this book is about a girl who keep getiing sucked in others dream, watching the dream inside the dream (Inception is that you? But it's far from that movie, their only similarity is that the story is talks about dreams). So while she's inside the dream, she too losts the connection in the real world so this is were the conflict of the story comes, what if while she's driving she suddenly sucked up on a dream, she might get into accident right? that's one problem
Honestly, I was not a fan of this trilogy. The first two books were just "okay" and then the last one was unsatisfactory. I wasn't emotionally connected throughout the whole bind-up/story; I didn't get excited, disappointed, or surprised. I didn't think the it was anything too spectacular although, I don't think any of that is only because of the story- the way it was written was bothersome too. I didn't feel any emotion or passion from the writing and it kept me from relating or understanding t ...more
Janie could be the most irritating and annoying character in the entire world. It's a little harsh I guess, but sometimes I wish she would jump off a cliff. She gets upset and, on quite a couple of occasions, completely shuts down and stops functioning! Cabel and her have an argument? Stop doing anything useful and mope around! Yes, that is what the does most of the time. The characters were all very bland. Almost no one had any background information, except Dorothea, Henry, and Cabel (maybe Mi ...more

I loved the concept, there is no denying that. The idea was original and unique, a very interesting story to think and read about. While I'm disappointed with how it was integrated with Janie's life, the books were still great reads. The writing style that the author pursued was well chosen - any other writing format would not have offered the same feel and effect of the story. All the characters were excellently used. They were well fleshed out and re

Resenha Wake

Janie tem 17 anos e um dom, se é que podemos chamá-lo assim, penetrar nos sonhos das outras pessoas, ser espectadora de seus medos, sofrimentos, vergonhas…

“A versão resumida? Sou tragada para os sonhos das pessoas. Não consigo evitar. Não consigo fazer parar. Isso está me deixando louca.”

Seu dom aflorou cedo, quando a garota tinha apenas 8 anos e desde então Janie é obrigada a vivenciar os sonhos alheios, ao passo que os seus, ah os seus próprios sonhos não existem. Se já não bastass
The first book in this three-book series, Wake, follows the story of a seventeen-year-old girl named Janie who is blessed(or cursed) with the ability to visit other peoples' dreams. The negative side of this is the fact that she is constantly sucked into dreams that she does not want to see or be a part of. This book had some ups and downs, one of the ups being its use of dry and ironic humor that relates so well to teenagers, and one of the downs being the rather annoying relationship between J ...more

As much as this book (the copy I found was all three books in one big book) kept me good company on my plane ride home from vacation, I couldn't help but feel that too many of the details had been rushed through. Though I loved the concept, I was pulled out of the book many times because the dynamics and relationships between characters were too unrealistic. I'm happy that I read this trilogy, but I wish that the writer had refined it more before publishing it.

The book had a good concept about how you enter dreams and things like that. But what I really liked about the book was the realism of the character. She was seriously between a rock and a hard place in the book and I like how they didn't overly romanticise the fact that she chose Cabel.

In the end, everything was sort of concluded nicely without me going WTF. So I liked that I didn't hate the female protagonist in the end as I do most of the time :)
This book was amazing as way the whole series I love the xharacters and how the author potrays Cable and Janies feelings toward each other but also give them rough times. I like the secrets that they keep it really gets good drama into the book between the two. I would have to say this book on a scale from one to ten is about a 9.6 I suggest this book highly. :)
The three books are Wake Fade and Gone they are about Janie who has a secret. She is sucked in to other peoples dreams. Some people may thing that it would be fun but Janie thinks other wise. Only a select few know about her gift. Janie gets a job with the police she goes into the suspect's dreams. Janie has a huge choice to make. She can either become isolated. Or become blind and not be able to use her fingers.
I just never did get connected to this story. The way it was written was choppy for me and I could not connect to the characters or feel for them. I thought the story line was odd and it never felt even remotely believable. Everything was convenient and predictable. Just not for me I guess...

I finished the series in a day, but man, I love it! Gone was very nice, the whole series is perfect. I sent my copy to my long distance boyfriend, because he's a reader and it'd be nice to share the knowledge of this book with someone.
Kyrstin Hunter
When I started reading the book I wasn't into the style of writing. But how that I'm into page 515 and just started "gone" I am really sucked into the story, I just love Janie and cabes relationship right now. I wish I had a boyfriend as caring as cable haha jealous!!
Sarah Erickson
It was good but there didn't seem to be an actual plot or reason for the book. It almost reads like an excerpt from a longer book. I don't know, didn't enjoy it as much as I did the first time I read the first two.
This book was a fun young adult read. I usually like an element of the supernatural in my stories, and it was interesting to see how the main characters emotionally became stronger while maneuvering the high school issues of romance, cliques, friendship and feeling "different" that many teens deal with, along with a serious lack of parental love and support. Each page held my interest.
Really compelling series. read it all in the one day! I liked they way the author has written the story, although the ending could be a bit more clear.....
I thought the plot of this book was pretty interesting and unique. After reading thru the series, I have to say that it is pretty depressing. This isn't necessarily a bad thing since most novels tend to have happily ever afters that aren't realistic, however, I did think the writing itself was rather simple for a teen/young adult novel. (Janie says, Janie does....) It just didn't flow smoothly the way it should have. The writing was more fitting for elementary/ middle school children, yet the co ...more
The concept of this series was really interesting - getting sucked into people's dreams - but unfortunately the story was a little too fluffy for me. McMann has a unique writing style, one that reminds me of Stiefvater and the way she manipulates text. It was a little simplistic at times, and I thinks that's what bothered me the most.

I was totally into the first book up until the time she starts dating Cabel. After that it got a little too mushy and unrealistic.

Not a terrible series, but also
Diana Vigueras
what an excellent book, I could not put it down. it made me sad when I was done reading this one
Wake started out as just a book I found at the library that I needed for my L/A reading log but I got so interested in it and that's when I got hooked! :) I had to find Fade and when my grandma bought it for me I was SOO happy, EXCTATIC! After finishing Fade I had to get my hands on Gone, the dream catcher series were my "crack" :)! As I read Gone I got to pg. 187 and panicked I couldnt believe I was almost finished. I wanted to cry thinking about the fact that I wouldn't have another to follow. ...more
