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.

Excellent story and good performance

I wanted to like it
I saw this at Barnes and Noble and as someone who has insomnia, I was intrigued. I read the first chapter there, then decided to get it on Audible since I commute on Fridays and Mondays about 3 hours and would give me something to listen to.
I don't like the narrator's voice at all. It annoyed me. I also did not really like the story. I felt like there could have been so much more done with this book. I stopped at Chapter 8. There was still almost 4 hours left of the book and I don't think I'll be finishing it. The other reviews praised this book, but I found it boring.
I did not like it at all.
I just wish it had been better. I love stories of this genre and this was definitely not worth it for me.
