A horror book with a male protagonist that was released in June this year. We meet Parker who has not been able to sleep for years. How he is still alive is a mystery but he keeps getting weaker and it’s only a matter of time before he dies. Then he finds a way to sleep, but this leads to obsession on his part that is almost similar to a drug addiction. His thoughts blur his memory is failing him and soon enough he don’t know anything at all, or does he?
Confusing ,yes? Well there was a lot going on in the book so many twists and turns that before you could make your mind up on whether you liked or disliked the event a new one came up. The main character is really good and even though the others were okay too, none of them really stood out to me. There is so much going on in the book that it becomes overwhelming at times but in the end I liked the weirdness and how strange everything was. It stood out to me in mostly a positive way.
I found that the setting was really good as well. With so many things happening it was nice to have a solid realistic place that everything happened in. This book is really strange tan extremely unbelievable so I really liked that R.J Johansson kept a normal setting and didn’t throw in some even weirder things. Tough this is an author I will keep my eyes on and I will be picking up the sequel when it comes out because Insomnia was a really unique book. 8 / 10
