"As satisfying a literary experience as has come down the pike in a novel form in a long time.”
"Astonishing. This is one of those books which is a combination of intense, offbeat, compelling, brilliant and interesting at the same time! Loved it."
—L. Anne Carrington
"It mesmerized me. Not sure what I was expecting, but this was far different, and far more intelligent.. Stream of consciousness can be hard to control, but you’ve made it an art."
"Kooky and lascivious.. Sick, but wonderful."
"A girl with a very dark mind—the way she has it all figured out, as all teenagers think that they do—a disturbing life path full of deadly dangers and sexual exploitation, but all viewed calmly and clinically.. I don’t know why but I thought of a modern female Holden Caulfield at times. Haunting and ambitious."
"Beautiful! This is exactly the kind of book I’m searching for when I go to the book store. I’ll spend an hour there and not find it, though. I’m amazed. Things Said in Dreams reads like truth. The dialogue feels true, the thoughts feel true, and the narration too."
"The language flows smoothly and freely, and this combined with the events themselves, the main protagonist and the transformative conclusion, makes Things Said In Dreams a very impressive and deeply sympathetic work."
"A great example of the subjective opinion when it comes to voice..I like that the narrator’s concept of life is so skewed..the voice and the character pulled me in..humorous and engaging."
