Oh my god.

This is so bad.

Very short sentences.

Paragraphs made from single sentences.

Then huge info dumps that come across as laughable attempts to be scientific, but in reality just fill pages that no one is going to read because they're so banal.

And characters who have no personality, just a trait.

And that ending - only "and then he woke up" could be lamer.

Actually, it reads like it's a proposal for a film rather than a finished novel.

Crossmaster I noticed you criticized his "very short sentences" with a very short sentence. Well, a very short fragment.
