Book Synopsis
Sleep is a crime.

Insomnia has become the catalyst for our misfortunes.

We receive Stims, side-effect heavy stimulants, which we use to stay awake,
but like a withering rose, so have the people given up on fighting sovereignty.

Atelier is the door to restoring our lost peace.
Arc is the key.

This story was interesting and Out-there, to say the least. And I enjoyed it. to summarize the plot: The book is told in first person, by the main character named Chord who finds himself on a quest for revenge to save the planet from an evil dictator who controls the people with drugs that keep them awake. I thought that plot alone was interesting, and made me ask the next question, why does he want them not to sleep? Right off, I wanted to know more, and the answer was even more interesting.

The only major problems that I had with the book, was that it was difficult at some points to understand what was going on. for example: The plot went into something a bit more fantasy and outlandish then what I was mentally expecting from the first chapter and the description of the book. This threw me off for awhile. It seemed like two separate story's rushing together very quickly, leaving me confused at first. Once I wrapped my mind around this new plot twist,(which I found also very creative) it was difficult for me to track new characters that came into the scene, that knew way more then I did, which left me clueless about things mentioned in the dialogue. I felt like they had inside information that mattered a lot to the plot, but I was never told. It made my brain hurt, just a little, and forced me to re-read pages over and over again just to understand only a little bit.

Though it could have been more enjoyable with those issues more developed, the story had me invested into the main character with his fight for good to win out against evil, while saving his friends along the way. If you do decide to pick this up, Just prepare yourself to enter the Atelier Arc itself. (you'll know what I mean, when you read it)

I look forward to more by Jay Bachelor, and will be looking.
