Her eyes saved his life.
Her dreams released his darkness.
After four years of sleeplessness, high school junior Parker Chipp can’t take much more. Every night, instead of sleeping, he enters the dreams of the last person he’s made eye contact with. If he doesn’t sleep soon, Parker will die.
Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. But what starts out as a chance meeting turns into an obsession; Parker’s furious desire for what he needs pushes him to extremes he never thought he’d go. And when someone begins to terrorizing Mia with twisted death threats, Parker’s memory blackouts leave him doubting his own innocence.
Parker was not the main character I was looking forward to. I could sense the point Johansson was attempting to place forward and make readers sympathise for his misfortune but honestly. His disrespect and stalkerish habits are no help in this criteria. Who the hell goes stalking a girl for good dreams? Desperation could be the reason behind it but, his reactions to everything is so surreally exaggerated. Definitely a difficult character to comprehend and mull over.
Cliché and stereotypical high school situations topped with distasteful romance, this book was definitely not for me. However, try this if you want. But I warned you, the ending is predictable.
There are people who genuinely enjoyed this book. Then there are the few that disliked this to a large extent- one of them being me. The only shining point in this novel was the idea. But look no further as the execution was illogical and far-fetched, also, in no way, shape or form I could relate to the main character. Calling Insomnia a disappointment does not even begin to cover my emotions right now.
Insomnia opens to a illustrative beginning. We are immediately thrown into ParkDNFDDDDDDEnnbjb
