    The fact that I enjoyed this book had nothing to do with the plot It was the way that the parents of a disabled child who came home from a summer camp pregnant handled a difficult situation entirely with love


  2. Megan Megan says:

    i like this book but i think it would have been better if it was longer it was over so fast too fast


  3. Veronica-Anne Veronica-Anne says:

    Another brilliant imaginative story from Joy Cowley This time the focus is on a rather remarkable and fearless 12 year old girl named Starbright Unwillingly to believe at first Starbright watches as the people she is closest to begin to succumb to 'Spindle sickness' that is creeping all over the world with no known cure Is she really the hero that can save everyone from the Dream Eater or is she just as powerless as everyone else? Joy Cowley has done it again Wonderful Highly recommended


  4. The Scarecrow The Scarecrow says:

    Oddly enough not as good as I remember but the concept is still uniue and the general message of the book is really good and it’s a uick read

    This book really messed with me as a kid and haunted me for years

    What a strange and very interesting bookStarbright Connor is a rather eccentrically named kid who lives with her mentally retarded mother Esther and her grandparents who adopted both Esther and Starbright A strange illness known as spindle sickness is spreading around in which people have upsetting dreams have their energy sapped away and eventually die The illness is not what it seems at all and as it infects Starbright's friends and Starbright herself she learns that even dreams are not what they seem as she must survive them and find a way to stop the Dream Eater who is the source of spindle sicknessWhat follows is an odd mix of suspense life drama fantasy and sci fi This is not an action story with fights and chases Instead there's plenty of character building suspense when the spindle sickness spreads an unexpected origin for the spindle sickness itself and a rather unusual method of fighting the Dream Eater The story spends a good amount of time letting us get to know Starbright and the people close to her and fleshing out Starbright's personality particularly her love of inventing new words on the spot Hoo diddly Inventing floozin' new words? What a crazycentric kid If those last few sentences annoyed you well I too was a little annoyed by Starbright's odd hobby but after a while it grew on me and I came to accept it as a fun character trait Even with that habit Starbright comes across as a believable character and that to me is a big part of what makes the story work Bruce Coville once said that if you take a believable kid and throw that kid into an unbelievable situation as long as the kid's personality and reactions are convincing then for the most part so is the story I feel that principle holds true here If it didn't then a story that deals with an alien prophecy a midwife who tries to hunt down the child she helped birth to let her know about her role in saving the world and a strange dream world that allows people to connect to each other would all come off as patently absurd or overblownBut instead I feel that the story was handled very well The different elements of the story tie into each other nicely and ensure that nothing feels out of place If I were to go into detail I'd risk spoiling parts of the story but suffice to say everything makes sense when you read itI have to close by saying that I was pleasantly surprised by this dramasci fifantasysuspense hybrid story It has so many disparate elements that seem like they wouldn't belong in the same book but here they just work well in context The characterization and a fast moving well thought out plot are the glue that keeps it together and makes it both believable and fun

    Starbright and the Dream Eater is yet another one of my all time favourite New Zealand books I have to say though this one is actually for a younger audience but it is still a great read and I think that some of the content of the book could probably be classed as young adult anywayI love Starbright she is a cool girl She's tough and she is able to fight the bad guys I also love Esther she's a really cool and down to Earth personThere was one thing I found confusing at first but the good thing is that it was later revealed and talked about so then I knew what was going on to do with thatOne reason I really really enjoyed Starbright and the Dream Eater was because it had a lot of mystry in it which is something I really loveThis book is one that I have read about five times It is seriously that good So if you ever see it anywhere pick it up because it is truly an amazing piece of writing It is also uite short so it wouldn't take very long to read at all


  8. Holly Holly says:

    The book started off well with a promising premise a strong cast of characters and wonderful details in scenery and description Unfortunately it lacked something for me and the ending was it was all a dream to me than anything surprising or uniue Maybe I'm just not one for philosophy or hippy love all things from flies to cockroaches stuff There was some potential in how the ending could have turned out with time shifting to a parallel universe and the resolution of the conflict with the Dream Eater felt too easy and uick Just a few little lines about loving the world and please find another planet? and it was off to find its home world The only really positive thing I can say is that Joy Cowley certainly has a way of describing the world and the characters within She managed to make the nightmares creepy disturbing and unsettling in a way that made me feel as though I were having them myself


  9. Kate Hastings Kate Hastings says:

    A spindle sickness causes people to permanently fall asleep and one girl will be called on to save the planet


  10. K K says:

    I remember enjoying this book when I was younger but unfortunately unlike some of my other favorites it didn't stand the test of time and now seems predictable and gimicky
