What if having one's dreams come true were to lead to a kind of living nightmare? This audiobook explores that idea with startling realism, thanks to George Newbern's bold voice and confident delivery. Newbern approaches the story of Winkler, a man whose dreams foretell reality, with a clarity and sincerity that are largely engrossing. Winkler endures a dream that changes his entire life, and his attempt to escape what he believes is inevitable lends the novel its heart. Newbern's style lends that heart its beat. Doerr, whose skill with storytelling and detail is evident here, sometimes slows the story in a way that is tough on an audiobook listener, but Newbern ensures that it's worth a listen.
