Pre-Pub Pick: THE DREAMERS by Karen Thompson Walker
Pre-Pub Pick: The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker (Expected publication: January 15th 2019 by Random House).
Walker returns to the dystopian genre (see her previous novel, The Age of Miracles with her new title, The Dreamers. With a small, California college town serving as the epicenter, an unknown virus takes hold in a dormitory, leaving its victims in a deep, coma like sleep. The reader is rapidly drawn into the story through multiple POVs as the virus takes over California. While more attention could have been given to the national and global reactions, Walker's novel is suspenseful with many discussion points (ethics, survival, dreams, what would you do if..). A definite page-turner! *Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for providing an e-galley for an unbiased review.*
