The House of Sleep provides a uniue reading experience that s for sure Its very structure resembles sleep as the chapters are named after the stages one goes through when sleeping Hence reading it you actually feel like sinking into a restless sleep full of dreams Coe has made a hell of a job with the characters Each has their own path to follow their own issues fears and complications Yet they affect each other s lives in extraordinary manners One thing they all have in common though is that none of them is entirely happy with who they are The narrative is a bit tricky and you have to be really thorough in order not to miss important plot points That s something I generally like in books and films that is when the creators treat their audience as thinking intelligent people However I d be lying if I said that it left me with no uestions I m convinced that it was Coe s intention to leave some things up to the reader s judgement Like how come the very building that housed the protagonists school years was turned into the sleep disorder clinic that would bring them back together And it s not just that The coincidences are just too many while some of them give the story a metaphysical feeling Like the one with the photo and Robert s dream those of you who ve read it know what I m talking about Or some recurring events that shouldn t be recurring But wait that reminds me of something

Oh my freakin duck This book is how I ve imagined LSD on bread would be like This book is life now I sound like a tumblrer everything and the reason why I love reading I live for this kind of books Something like this of such majesty fervour ingenious depth has to be felt and steered perpetually from end to end of oneself As those being said Jonathan Coe is a master of mind tricks enclosed by words and brought to surface by the body s trembling Left with tears flooding my eyes on this one my synapses nipped nip which ran through my eyes and my heart I do feel this whenever I undergo ardent emotions of any kind Oh yes I believe the last one stopped for few seconds I think we all got the idea that this book is about sleep also all the diseases that sleep denotes What we ok let s say I didn t know was that this book can open your eyes bad joke as far as this is not mostly about sleep even though I find it uite educative but our inner self instead To start with the book is split into even the story is taking place in the last two weeks of June 1996 and uneven chapters 1983 1984 This is the first line in the whole scheme it makes the far fetched seem closer while the whole book is conseuently a fulfilment we had all dreamt of and this is to perceive what is not right in some decisions we make and how they tug at our heartstrings in the future when we least expect them to reappear In 1996 Ashdown turned into a clinic for insomniacs while in 1983 1984 all the characters gave all out to make a living From one chapter to another a world hatches right in front of our eyes dividing the novel into the world that is and the world that isn t yet The knack that stands at the bottom of the smoke and mirrors are the paths followed everything knots when no one knows For instance to have the same language as the writer phases of sleep there was a phase in which they were all working unconsciously at their own future during the time that with the use of the chapters interlacing as a reader you have the eerie feeling that everything was fated of course there are and clues on the road This is an unnormal state of predictability that I ve never read before in a book with such realism a story that is not on the cards for no one BUT from a source beyond everything I like to call this fiction that s why it sends chills on one s spine becomes embroidered for the sake of harmony For example imagine there are many people in a room at a party they do not want to have anything to do one with another KNOWING unconsciously they will be back in the same place where someday they ll have to talk AND they will for sure The intensity of this game with the aim of intergrowth is outlandish and bloodcurdling after some time due to the characters Everything was so carefully wrapped in the cloth of dream that I can barely remember the backgrounds that were not images absorbed from the relation dream reality That s because each thing is like a mist nothing seems touchable since all is absurd while all revolve around all and all in the void Second of all Jonathan Coe gives birth to one of the most topping deliciously blown up out of all proportion characters to take everything in The idea of sleep is transmuted into ego whereas the self is distinctive and it floats above each character because yes this book is a web of fortunes refined by its own mains no matter how far On this very uniue grounding the characters are searching for one another that s why many of them dream and sense the fate in their reverie as this is what they really want others reveal how meaningful verity is and others are the linkers between the two worlds It is like a drawing in which everyone has hisher own place and purpose I have always been fascinated concerning my own dreams that s why I had uitted making my own before the real ones On account of this I could get with all haste to what I wanted the one that I am not what I want I don t want to spread spoilers so I won t give any hint of who is who and why This is the gimmick All of them try to save what they have including eachother by entering life as it is but the vacillation that delusions give baffle them from following their hearts and own conceptions combined with their own personality ualm and fear of surroundings Ashdown can be owning to this change what I like to call Land of Oblivion Not like it wasn t menacing enough there are some pieces of twists love tragedy self hatred so all can recede in what we can all have vision One thing is for sure I will never forget this book Hopefully I will be able to put all that I ve learned in actions We all want something but dreaming is not the smartest escape This book is an escape

The House of Sleep review Ó 4 Read & Download Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Jonathan Coe R ten years of fretful slumber and dreams gone bad the four reunite in their college town to confront their disorders In a Gothic cliffside manor being used as a clinic for sleep disorders they discover that neither love nor lunacy nor obsession ever rest. I wanted to really like this novel because I felt like it did a lot of things very well The story was intriguing the characters had the potential to be very interesting all of that good stuff But for some reason while I was entertained by the story I didn t really develop any kind of emotional attachment to the characters I never felt like I really knew them and it felt kind of like all the characters were playing pieces that the author moved around at will I m curious if other people have read this novel and what your reaction to it was
