Dreams

 

I don’t enjoy dreams in books.  I feel it does not further the story hardly at all.

 

However, this is just my pet peeve.  Maybe you enjoy reading about characters dreaming.

 

I’ll be reading a book and it has a paragraph (usually long, sometimes a whole chapter) that I have to discard since dreams are not reality for that character.  For any character.

 

Dreams may bring our character a revelation, and try to bring that into the story in another context rather than a dream.

 

I don’t know how many readers agree with me, it is just my humble opinion and pet peeve.

 

What do you think?  Let me know.
