    3.5 out of 5 stars 189

Shortlisted for the Arthur C Clarke Award. Dawn breaks over Vancouver and no-one has slept the night before, or almost no one. A few people, perhaps one in ten thousand can still sleep, and they've all shared the same strange, golden dream. A handful of children still sleep as well, but what they're dreaming remains a mystery. After six days of absolute sleep deprivation, psychosis will set in.

I gave this a go but just couldn't get into it. Didn't seem to get going

A story of obsession, revenge and deceit, of a woman caught up in terrifying circumstances. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins and Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. Laura Maxwell appears to have it all - perfect career, perfect husband, perfect life. But how well do you really know the people around you? All it takes is one tiny crack to shatter the whole façade. A series of accidents causes Laura to believe that someone out there is deliberately targeting her, trying to harm her.

Took a while to get going and didn't really redeem itself. Weak story line (sorry)
