Fever Dreams by Samantha Schweblin

My Rating: 2.0

Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. This is told in various flashbacks. You know how when you have a fever and have the most wild crazy dreams and, when you wake up, you remember disjointed pieces that are just enough to unsettle you. This book was aptly named. Even after it ended I wasn't sure what to think. On one hand, this captured a fevered dream so well - disoriented, confused, bizarre, patchwork of disjointed pieces. Pieces that I didn't feel came together even in the end.

As much as the writing was amazing, this would not be a recommend.
