I'm pleased to tell you that I just finished reading "Akio & the Dream World" this morning and I was very impressed with the whole story.
The publicity material for the book states that the author, who is 25 years old, took to writing this story after losing his mother in 2013.
- In his first published release, Snook lasers in on the true power of dreams. 'Akio & The Dream World' is vivid, engaging and thought-provoking. Above all, it's a message to the world straight from the author's heart.
I found that the tale read well right from the very intriguing beginning about the young man getting on the strange bus, until the very lovely ending. The topic about dreams and not being afraid to question the unknown, brought back memories of when I was a small child and having to listen to my older brothers tell scary tales to each other as we all waited for sleep at night.
I especially liked that there "were lessons to be learned in this story."
I'm certain that most children will find this story as interesting as I and feel that this book is meant for teenagers more than younger ones.
Would I recommend this book to others? YES
