THis is a really good book for little girls that are fancy at times and tom boys at others. My grand child loves it - especially with the mirror on the last page that shows her the most special princess.

I thought it was a little pricey, but the dvd was more than worth the cost. It's really helpful. His books are good too. I found it helpful to watch the DVD, to see the program in action. The "scenarios" are a bit over the top, but they do the job. Tom Phelan is a great speaker--funny, accessible, authoritative. I enjoyed watching it.

Poet Anderson… Of Nightmares is the latest installment of a cross-media project written by Tom Delonge and Suzanne Young. I have been a fan of Tom Delonge’s work for over a decade and have particularly enjoyed the Poet Anderson project which has already included an award winning animated short, three comic books, a graphic novel and two albums, The Dream Walker LP and the …Of Nightmares EP which is a companion to the novel. I impatiently awaited the release of the Poet Anderson… Of Nightmares novel and I was not disappointed. The plot is a typical hero’s quest, but what really drew me in was the depth and detail of the world created by Tom Delonge and his creative team. It describes a Dream World, a place where all of us visit when we sleep. Most of us simply wander through the Dream World, unware that we are even dreaming. The Lucid Dreamers are well aware of their dream state and have the ability to control their dreams and, to an extent, change their environment. But there are those in the Dream World who have even greater awareness and even greater abilities. Unbeknownst to most of the Waking World, there is war waging in the Dream World where REM, the epitome of evil and the harbinger of nightmares, strives to not only control the realm in which he exists, but he seeks to enter the Waking World where he can make nightmares real. He and his army of Night Stalkers and Night Terrors consistently battle the Dream Walkers, dreamers who will stop at nothing to put a stop to REMs malevolent ways. Enter Jonas Anderson, an orphan who, like his older brother Alan, are Lucid Dreamers and have enjoyed exploring the Dream World in a very limited capacity. They have suspicions of deeper levels of subconscious awareness but never had a chance to fully explore. After Alan is put into a coma from a terrible and suspicious car accident, Jonas resolves to find a way into the deeper realms of the Dream World to find and retrieve his brother. It is then that Jonas begins to learn the true nature of the Dream World and his place in it. Jonas has a destiny that neither he nor his brother ever imagined and Poet Anderson… Of Nightmares is about his journey to that discovery. In the Dream World he makes many friends and enemies, learns to overcome his fears, to own the pain he has for so long locked away and to trust in himself and the people he loves and love him. The book reads extremely easily and the prose flowed so smoothly that I, as a 40 year old man, initially thought it was a little to “young” for my liking. However, after a few chapters of getting used to Suzanne Young’s style and getting familiar with the world and characters she eloquently describes, it was very easy for me to visualize everything that was transpiring on the pages. The dialogue between Jonas and his younger companions was appropriately juvenile (he is a high school student, after all) and the manner in which the more grown-up characters spoke effectively contrasted the attitudes of the mature and not so mature characters. The development of Jonas’ relationship with his love interest Sam felt particularly awkward, but then, what teenage romance isn’t awkward? The morals and philosophies of the Dream Walkers, though ultimately benevolent, beg us to ask many questions: How far can you go to stop evil, even if it means sacrificing the lives of the good? How far is too far? It is a devastating war the Dream Walkers are fighting and REM has no objection to killing anyone in his way. But when the Dream Walkers determine that Jonas is the key to their victory and to REMs victory, should Jonas be destroyed for the sake of the rest of the world? It is a very important question that the book poses and it is an obvious reflection of our Waking World. It is a question we should be asking ourselves. I enjoyed this book on all levels… the characters, the story, the highly detailed world. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys science-fiction… from cyberpunk to fantasy, space opera to thrillers… it even appealed to the part of my heart that is still 15 years old. The characters are loveable and loathsome, the story is gripping and the settings is unbelievable. The imagination of Tom Delonge is rich and deep and Suzanne Young did an amazing job putting it on paper for all of us to experience.

My husband reads all the Tom Clancy books and can't always find them in the stores. It was easy to find the ones he was missing and order them from Overstock.

This novel exceeded my expectations in terms of quality of the story and was an enjoyable and excellent read. When I think of video game tie-in novels, I tend to be prejudiced towards thinking of them as juvenile and just in it for a quick buck from fans of the games. Eric Nylund did an amazing job of fleshing out the characters and setting, and allowing the book to stand on its own merits. I am a fan of the Halo video games, but I believe that these books would be accessible to any fan of sci-fi action novels, especially if they like special forces/military novels as well (such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six novel). I can also highly recommend his follow up novel, First Strike. Skip "The Flood", written by a different author, as it follows the story of the first Halo game, and doesn't really bring anything new to the table.
