Publisher's Summary

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. After four weeks, the body will die. In the interim, panic ensues and a bizarre new world arises in which those previously on the fringes of society take the lead. One couple experience a lifetime in a week as he continues to sleep, she begins to disintegrate before him, and the new world swallows the old one whole...NOD.

Under rated but not for every one

There hasn't been only two reviews on this book from what it looks like, one disappointed and the other in the middle so for the third I'll say I loved it. Very sad but very intriguing.

Excellent story and good performance

The performance was almost perfect. The tone is a little bland, but he's consistent, and diverse in his characters. The story was excellent and didn't waste any time getting to the point. The only thing that I didn't like was the narrow focus of the story, considering the scope of the issue. There was much more story to tell, and at the end you are left wanting more of it. I would definitely like to see more stories based in this world.
