Sleep scientist Dr. Spence Reston is having trouble sleeping. His experiments are giving him dreams that haunt his waking hours. He has long periods for which he has no memory. Suicide is beginning to seem like a good idea. Is he losing his mind? Or is there another altogether more frightening explanation? Thus begins a battle for the future of the universe, in which the fate of humankind hangs on the fragile sanity of one man. Original and accomplished, bursting with suspense and intrigue, Dream Thief is science fiction on a grand scale.

I have loved the Dream Thief for the last decade and I cannot tell you how many times I have read it! Lawhead writes with such a descriptive, entrancing style that draws reader into the story. A man on a space station is researching dreams but soon enough his own recurring dreams become the focus of study as he unveils a plot to destroy mankind that only HE can stop! This is a slow read - if you can hang on til the end, you will be well rewarded I promise!

...Of prescience on the side. Loved Stephen Lawhead for years, so this early work is a fun visit to a developing writer. Enjoyed the seriously nerdy and oblivious protagonist and the eerily familiar (though coincidental) villain. The story carries you along nicely, with a heady dose of science fiction that is not completely out-dated, so makes for a good read and doesn't throw you out of the story. Sci-fi fans will enjoy.
