Ordinary people are experiencing lucid nightmares about Nazi death camps filled with such intense detail that the dreamers are haunted by them even when awake. Psychiatrist Dr. J. Michael Keating becomes immersed in unraveling their stories. Focusing on topics such as past-life regression and reincarnation, Thomas F.

Shelves: thriller, 2011-read
The story was excellent, and emotional with a fantastic ending. I loved it. My only criticisms are that there was too much telling and not enough showing at times, some of the characters could have been done better, and some of the sub stories could have been more complete or perhaps done differently. For example, the romance seemed arbitrary, didn't contribute much to the plot, and felt unfinished. Still, the main story was just great. Overall, a really good read.

3.5 stars. It was really good, and really enjoyable. I have not seen many authors take on the task of telling a story about the holocaust. But this was amazing. It was interesting, suspenseful, and just well written.

My problem with this book (and it's a big problem by my standards) is that the first half of the book gets repetitive to the point where I almost had to put the book down. Basically, here's what happens. (no spoilers here, but still...) It starts off with random people having terribl

Seemingly ordinary people are having very lucid and scary dreams...
In these dreams they are jewish victims of the Nazi Concentration camps.
But none of the dreamers are jewish
What is the significance and reson of these dreams?
...and what happens when a goverment secret agent starts also having dreams...but in these he is NOT the victim...
A great Read!!!

An enjoyable, creepy, over the top romp with history and the supernatural. I found this made a good pairing with Simmons "Carrion Comfort", reading them at about the same time.
