Zamm Boola from author Scott Chally is a thriller, suspenseful, mystery book. Scott Chally brings four major characters’ friendship to life in this story. All four characters are around thirty years old. They are from a junior high school district of a small suburb in Los Angeles, California. One of the friends researches his family history back to the time of slavery in America and finds out they came from Zamm Boola, Africa. The four friends set up a trip to visit Zamm Boola, a small village next to the Congo rainforest in Africa.
While in Zamm Boola, the friend that had traced back his family roots then met some of his distant relatives. They learn what the culture of the Zamm Boola people is like. One of his distant relatives introduces the four friends to a shaman in the camp. The shaman has spiritual powers to cast spells. The friends end up doing a spiritual ritual with the shaman on dreams. The shaman tells them they will acquire a dream, which could be for the good or bad, once a week that they will have to reenact for the next day. The friends didn’t think much of the ritual and laughed it off. They soon find out the dreams are never completed, and they have to find out what happens at the end. The dreams end abruptly with no ending. It becomes evident that what the shaman had casted on them is true as the story goes on when mishaps happen and even death. How they react to their dreams could mean good or bad for them. They see the future with their dreams and have to figure out right from wrong in order to stay alive. The shaman told them at the time of the ritual that the dreams will last for three years or until they pass the spiritual spell placed upon them. They are uncertain exactly how they can achieve this task. The plot has twists that will bring the audience into wanting to figure out each dream’s outcome.
