Agents of Dreamland Summary ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub A government special agent known only as the Signalman gets off a train on a stunningly hot morning in Winslow Arizona Later that day he meets a woman in a diner to exchange information about an event that happened a week earlier for which neither has an explanation but which haunts the SignalmanIn a ranch house near the sho. Agents of Dreamland follows a slow creepy apocalypse No really This is Lovecraftian horror and for that I have to compliment it is very very disturbing The entire book is a journey in how far your mind can take you to dark places in how to terrify human beings without ever really being specific about what we are meant to be terrified by It is a book that forces you to stare into the void and then beg someone to look backIt s excellently written mysterious enough to be compelling and a bit existential So I ve been super complementary of this but I also three starred And that s because I am not a horror person at all I was expecting a lot of cool worldbuilding and cool character development and then horror as one aspect of a whole But the sheer level of horror was kind of all I got out of this book Especially as it s a novella causing existential fear is the end all be all of this bookBut I will also say that as a whole this narrative is so confusing that I ended it feeling as if I had gotten nothing out of the book as a whole Which is not the feeling you want when you finish a book So overall good but not good for meBlog Goodreads Twitter Youtube
