If Sigmund Freud wrote a novel, this might be it. The premise of it explores dream interpretation, the subconscious, mysteries of the mind, etc. -- but as physically materialized in the waking life of the protagonist, who is a psychologist by profession. Life: Are we awake in a dream, or are we dreaming when awake? He seeks to unravel the meaning behind the manifestations so as to fix his life and his relationships. Personally, I would have preferred a more in depth foray into the esoteric and metaphysical, so for me, it's just an OK read.
