Dream Girl by S.J. Lomas


Dream Girl narrates the story from two different perspectives of Gabriel and Christine. It is a novel that lets you dive right in to the world of dreams that is more than just lucid dreams. One you couldn't possibly imagine dreaming of.

Gabriel is an emotional and capable character, in my opinion. He is able to get things on his side without much of an effort. Although the demeanor he gives people can be intimidating, he is trustworthy enough that Christine believes in him. She is instantly pulled to him almost as the first time she caught sight of him at the public library. I thought that was inevitable as he is strikingly good-looking guy and foolish of her to be attracted, so much so without knowing him. The love at first sight was a rush and not a well thought out move, that's all. However, I started to realize something though and it was not half bad at all.

I had agreed with Daria (one of Christine's best friends), regarding the infatuation Christine feels towards Gabriel. Her views were right then. As I continued reading, the plot's climax or somewhere around it has dawned on me to think more clearly. From there, I started changing my views on what it really is about Christine and Gabriel's relationship. It has a purpose. The two were brought together for a revelation or something like it. Both of them are about to get to the bottom of things and find out.

The story started off to get the attention of the reader. It was intriguing enough when Gabriel appears all of a sudden into the plot. Honestly, I've had experienced a bit of a struggle at first, after Gabriel was introduced but I work slowly through it.

Readers have to pay close attention. There's a part where I got confused between what's real and dream world. I thought it was the character's reality until it was stated it was only a dream. Prior to what I missed out and clueless of what the events were, I had to reread it again.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading Dream Girl, one that reminds me of the movie Inception as it was pretty much alike to each other. I love idea when dreams are formed by the main characters, all can be felt physically and emotionally. Despite the difficulties Christine and Gabriel faced, they are determined to overcome the obstacles and end them. Both has survived the intense and every realistic they encounter in each of their dreams.

The ending wrapped up nicely. Even though it hasn't been fully revealed to readers of why Christine could have the ability that matches Gabriel's, I believe they still have a long way to go and better understand the dangers of the journey they have chosen for themselves. I definitely hope for a sequel to come! If you loved the movie Inception, I would recommend that you read this book!



(Actual) Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
