Marcos just lost his mother, a famous dancer who is/was his everything. So he decides the world just isn’t the world without her.

So he makes a change, one in which that causes him to live life in an extreme way . . . by not sleeping.

*Short Review*

Espinosa is the creator of my most beloved show The Red Band Society. So it was only natural that I pick up this book. The idea that the future no only believes in sleeping is such an intriguing idea that the author got point simply off this.

However, the book went down hill. Marcos is the most lifeless character I have ever read and although I understand why the author choose that route for most of the book, it made for a hard read.

I also felt some type of way about Marcos relationship with his mother. It was off. Which made me see why Marcos was off.  Even after everything was said and done, it made a hard book even harder.

This book is part of my DNF list. The concept of not having to sleep again was great and it really brought attention to the book but the main character. . . I just couldn’t do it.
