    This is the short preuel to Chris Bohjalian's The Sleepwalker I enjoyed this but am left wondering how it compares to The Sleepwalker which is a full novel and is getting so many less than wonderful reviews The young girl in this novel seventeen has a premonition of an event that will have an impact on her relatively small town and specifically on one family The same young girl is the daughter of a sleepwalker When her mother goes sleepwalking twice one summer when the husband is away on business The first time her actions lead them her to be the talk of the town people driving slowly past their house to take in what her mother had done The second time though was another story More of a cautionary tale There's another family who are new to the area that they befriend the daughters somewhat begrudgingly Their two stories are somewhat entangled and I imagine where this ends is or less where The Sleepwalker begins By itself this is a little less than satisfying the ending seems to be left too open unless you are sure you want to read The Sleepwalker Since I haven't read it I'm not sure how this ties into The Sleepwalker

    This short preuel is a wonderful introduction to Chris Bohjalian's The Sleepwalkeruick creepy and leaves you wanting

    2 stars it was OK I read this because I really enjoyed The Sleepwalker and it was nice to visit Lianna again a character I was fond of in that book However I don't think this added anything at all to the novel or its characters and generally seemed unnecessary

    Shrouded in foreshadowing and laced with supernatural elements this tale introduces us to sleepwalking and premonitions This is classic Bohjalian and I cannot wait to crack open Sleepwalker Bohjalian gives us glimpses into the life of a young girl who experiences a premonition before a bizarre electrical accident a mother who does strange things while sleepwalking and an odd little boy who obsesses over medieval times The author delights in sharing these preuels with us and I find they wet my palate and prepare me for the main course The author also seamlessly shares information about sleepwalking and how it impacts the entire family He left me wildly curious about Lianna's premonition and the strange young boy Cady McClain did an excellent job narrating and I am almost sorry I didn't wait for the audio of The Sleepwalker Copy provided by publisher This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

    Can't wait to dive into The Sleepwalker now


  6. Susan Crowe Susan Crowe says:

    Excellent Now I can't wait for the book

    This is the preuel to Sleepwalker and as I was planning on reading Sleepwalker I opted to read this first It's in 1st POV of the daughter of the Sleepwalker At this point in time she's 17 which may explain why this felt rambling and pointless I was bored with all the content and it took 5 days just to get through this I kept putting it down Shouldn't preuels have a point? Shouldn't they make you want to read the actual book? Now I'm wondering if I want to read Sleepwalker after all


  8. Stephanie Stephanie says:

    I picked up this read because I loved Bohjalian's book The Guest Room After finishing this preuel to The Sleepwalker I felt curious as to how it will fall in line with the following book The short story is left extremely open ended I'm unsure of what significance this will have on The Sleepwalker but I'm very curious to find out I wouldn't say this vague beginning has gotten me hooked but if this story is anything close to how suspenseful and well written The Guest Room was then I'm super excited


  9. Michelle Michelle says:

    Some great background for those who've read The Sleepwalker or a nice intro to that book uick and enjoyable read


  10. Sue Sue says:

    This is a preuel to Chris's new novel The Sleepwalker due in January It gives some background to the soon to be released novel and makes you rush to to pre order the novel I read the novel first and then the short story Even though I knew what was going to happen I was still entranced by the author's ability to foreshadow his novel just enough but not too much It introduced the characters and the main premise of the story and told about one incident that happened several years before the novel starts where the mom sleepwalks and how much the family is upset with her nocturnal wanderings You should try to read it before you read the novel and now that the novel has been published you won't have to wait Whether you read it before or after it's still an amazing short story
