The Unamusement Park by Walter Black

Heads will roll, critics will scoff, and dead relatives will roll over in their graves. Follow Jacob, a mattress delivery driver, into uncharted realms of the human psyche. This irreverent tale of an infinite hallway of colored doors is theater-of the-absurd at its best. Jacob cautiously steps into bizarre nightmares and sublime dreams. As in Aldous Huxley's DOORS OF PERCEPTION, Jacob enters realms of the infinite, leaving behind his daily life with its narrow scope. At first fearful, he seeks to escape the strange hallway, but later, he questions his desire to return to his ordinary routine and the anxieties of today's world.

The author has an extremely vivid imagination. The beginning of the book started out a little slow, but I wanted to know what was going to happen. Was jacob going to get out of the hallway of colored doors? Did somebody set him up for revenge or some kind of experiment? Jacob ended up in some unusual rooms, one was a paradise (a tropical island), and another had a circular purple room that enduced terrifying dreams. There was a teenage skateboarder named Eric and a beautiful girl from Colombia named Zorra. I wondered what happened to Mimi, the old woman who seemed to have dementia. She disappeared in a cloud of smoke due to spontaneous combustion. There were puppet shows, and old movies that showed the older people when they were younger. Everyone, including Jacob was trapped in the house of mindgames. I wondered if he would get out.
When the book ended I was amazed. I had to set down the book and say, "Oh, my God!" I was left in awe of the detail of the story, of the creativity and imagination of the author.
