Book Review & Giveaway: The Experiment of Dreams

The Experiment of Dreams
By Brandon Zenner
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Available on Amazon!

A shocking psychological thriller: Benjamin Walker's lifelong career of testing experimental drugs and medicines, as well as participating in fascinating sleep-related studies, has come to an end. A new and lucrative job opportunity is offered to Ben, working on a project named Lucy, a machine capable of reading and recording a person's dreams in intimate detail. All is finally going well for Ben . . . until strange dreams of a town named Drapery Falls begin to plague him, and memories once hidden begin to reveal themselves. The doctors and staff onboard team Lucy are not who Ben thinks they are, and Mr. Kalispell will stop at nothing to keep Ben's emerging memories buried for good. Ben is put on a collision course that will bring him to the brink of total insanity, and perhaps even death. At the heart of it all, Ben's worst enemy is his own mind, and he must confront his past in order to save his future. The twist and turns in The Experiment of Dreams will keep you guessing, down to the very last line.

My Review

Brandon Zenner has crafted a psychological thriller that will have your emotions riding on a wild roller coaster. We meet Ben, a broken man who has turned to alcohol and medical testing in an attempt to numb the grief of losing his wife. He is the perfect candidate for a dream study that includes testing new machinery as well as medications. As Ben goes deeper into the dream studies, he begins to lose himself, and the line between reality and dream becomes blurred. The plot is fascinating and just when you think the truth has been revealed, you're thrown another curve ball. I love the in-depth plot, the growth of the characters, and tightroping Ben's mind.

Author Bio:

Brandon Zenner was born and raised in Red Bank New Jersey, only a short distance from the shore. His short fiction has been published in both print and online publications, the first being PLAZM 28, submitted when Brandon was just 19 years old. In 2014 Brandon published his first full-length novel, "The Experiment of Dreams," as a Kindle ebook. The paperback novel followed a year later. His second full-length novel is well on its way.

Throughout his early years writing, Brandon's favorite practice was to open a dictionary to any random page and aimlessly select the first word that this finger touched. He would then feverishly write a short story using his Smith-Corona typewriter. Using a mechanical typewriter, without the aid of auto correct, taught the importance of grammar and spelling (as well as patience and aggravation).
