Book Review of Lucid by Katherine Angela Yeboah
Lucid by Katherine Angela Yeboah is the tale of Sloane, a young woman who has begun to have terrifying dreams of a girl held captive and tortured. She suspects her neighbor. As she shares her fears with her friends, one of them decides to explore the neighbor's apartment while Sloane distracts him. In the end, Sloane herself is taken captive. All along, the neighbor is the suspect, but the ending has a surprise.
I enjoyed reading this book and kept turning the pages to find out if Sloane's dreams were real or if she was merely experiencing "lucid" dreaming. The generous use of sentence fragments at times was distracting from the story, but many skilled authors make use of this grammatical method.
It was a good scary read. Warning: it does not have a happy ending.
