the weak, the ignorant and the evil

Would you try another book written by J.D. Oswald or narrated by Wayne Forester?

I couldn't manage to finish this book. I just got too sick of the timid and weak main characters of 'good' who do nothing but internalize and don't do much else of anything.


What was most disappointing about J.D. Oswald’s story?

The main characters both have their minds messed with. One who could have solved his situation by simply getting angry and pointing, and the other spent a year doing nothing but reading when he knew almost right away that he was remembering things that didn't really happen, and did nothing about it.


What does Wayne Forester bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I liked the narrator, though he took a one dimensional book and made it more enjoyable.


What character would you cut from Dreamwalker?

None, but i would change then 2 main characters a bit, it seems they fell all emotions unless they are a victim, then they just do nothing.


Any additional comments?

Making the main characters meek to further plot devices, most author do it and it is infuriating. The first book really is just a laying out of some information, basically. The dragons don't get described in stature or body shape, but most of the time act like normal humans in most regards.

A summary I would make is, dragon boy does nothing but manage to point something out after a year of sulking. The human male does nothing after a year of not bothering to wonder why his memories are a mess. The 'evil' characters easily further their plots without any problems.
