Maybe The Dream Knows What Is Real by Steve Grogan is a unique little book which is sure to make you squirm in your seat no matter how big your appetite for dark violence is. This book is a quick read which will make you feel unsettle and uncomfortable with a story and a character as unique as the book's name.
I liked the book, even though I felt a bit quesy while reading it, but I would have enjoyed it more had the main character been developed a tad more. The story was okay but the characterization compromised the plot because it was a character-driven story which needed a very strong lead. Still, I won't write it off only based on characterization because it was a short story and not a full-length novel.
If you have a stomach for violence and if you are okay being uncomfortable then go ahead and give this book a read.
