Dreamsphere: The Day We Stopped Dreaming

Dreamsphere is a profoundly philosophic, chaotic, nihilistic story without heroes, plot, climax, or purpose; but with cats, flying pigs and meaning. An epic cyberpunk/science fiction tale about nothing. Life has meaning ... does it not?
Kindle Edition, 143 pages

Well! I have no idea what I've just read.

It's a mix of sci-fi, humor, and has some historical elements tossed in. The comical side was fantastic! I was laughing out loud and some of the antics of the characters. This novella is written in an intriguing way, introducing new characters without making it confusing, which seems to be a hard thing for most writers to accomplish successfully. The colorful artwork is appreciated; I quite enjoyed each new chapter bringing with it a new drawing.

Now, onto

This futuristic cyberpunk tale is fun, thought-provoking and thoroughly enjoyable. Don't be fooled by the blurb - this book handles some big themes but with an unapologetic humour that makes this incredible world run straight to long term memory.

I had a lot of fun with this read and I love the art work. Definitely worth a read! If not least for the flying pigs!

Thank you so much to author Samson Tonauac for providing me with a copy of Dreamsphere in order to write an honest review.

I'm calling Dreamsphere science fiction because I think that is the closest genre to apply. But it's more than that. It's philosophy, it's satire, it's humorous, it's challenging, it's dissociative, and it has pictures.

Dreamsphere is a love it or hate it kind of book. I lo

This was a strange one! I’m not sure if it’s the most novel approach to writing I’ve experienced or the worst idea since the invention of the underwater toaster. Maybe a touch of both...

The characters were intentionally written to be unlikeable, however I saw them as interesting, honest and complex. Their experiences were simultaneously identifiable yet otherworldly. I strangely identified with some of their weirder thoughts; I’m not sure if this betrays something about my psyche or if it’s part

Wow. This may be one of the best books I've ever read. Hands down. It is dark, it is hilarious, it is philosophical, it delves deep into the meaning of life and the problems each and everyone of us faces, and it is definitely punk. I am quite surprised by the one reviewer who mentioned that the dreamsphere is "is a place or state of mind created by Dr. Clive W. Rossak with the aid of nano drives and the bIOS (Biological Operating System)." That isn't what the book says at all. The dreamsphere wa ...more

I like the writing but the art and the "ads" keep taking me out of the story. It also jumps around too much for my tastes. DNF at 60%. ...more

Dreamsphere: The Day We Stopped Dreaming by Samson Tonauac is a futuristic sci-fi cyberpunk enlaced with dark humour. The writing is raw and direct and mostly I didn't mind it as it gave a unique edge to the story. The plot structure was okay and the story was good and in spite of being presented in fragments and a lot of head-hopping, I found it engaging. 

The characters were obviously written with the intent of not being loved, but, as a writer myself, I think that it could have been done in a

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway prize. I was not compensated otherwise. I truly enjoyed everything about this book. Not only was it a quick easy read, but the writing was wonderful, the story itself was novel and different, and the ideas presented resounding. I consistently found myself smiling and nodding, and just feeling really peaceful and content while meandering through this futuristic stroll. This book was more of a philosophy presented through story, reminiscent of Ayn Rand, ...more
