I read this book out loud to my 10 year old son This was a creative and engaging adventure fantasy The style that it was written in made it incredibly easy to read out loud I didn t find myself stumbling over strange speech patterns or awkward dialogueThe story is based on the creative premise of a society that performs exceptional activities while they sleep for them wakefulness is a state of laziness It was interesting and full of a ton of adventure and excellent action scenesThere are uite a few plot holes and inconsistencies throughout the story However those didn t bother my son So this is probably one of those reads that kids will really love but adults will only feel so so aboutThe story is a bit drawn out and at times it felt like there was too much detail However the whole family enjoyed this and my son would like to continue with the seriesOverall this was a fun middle grade adventure read My whole family ended up enjoying it There are some plot holes and inconsistencies throughout the story but these didn t bother my son Only other complaint would be that at points the story gets a bit long because there is too much detail Generally this was a good read and I might continue on with the series if my son wants to

read & download Dormia by Jake Halpern Dormia by Jake Halpern characters È 107 Nap Alfonso blinked open his eyes and discovered that he was perched at the top of a gigantic pine tree – some two hundred feet above the ground The view was spectacular Alfonso could see for miles in every direction and he could even make out his house in the distant hamlet of World’s End Minnesota Unfortunately there was no time to enjoy the view The small branch that Alfonso stood upon was covered with gleaming snow and creaked dangerously under the pressure of his weight Icy gusts of wind shook the entire treetop Alfonso looked down grimly at the ground far below If he fell he would most certainly die“Oh brother” muttered Alfonso to himself “Not again?. In the words of someone I know mehThe concept was interesting enough and there were plenty of sleep related jokes in Dormia but the whole story seemed rushed and the ending seemed abrupt and vague I m sure since there is a continuation to the seriesThe story was interesting enough however to merit 3 rather than 2 but I m not sure if it was enough to get me to read the seuel Who knowsIf you have time to kill go ahead and read this otherwise don t go out of your way It sat on my bookshelf for 3 years
