tears of dreamers

Are There Lesbians? Yes

What Happens?
A new, all-encompassing love story from the author of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Strange the Dreamer is first and foremost the story of a dreamer and a dream. Orphan Monk-turned-Librarian Lazlo Strange has spent his entire life dreaming of the fabled city of Weep. When his dreams turn to reality in the form of a man known as “Godslayer” and his cohort, Strange will begin to unravel mysteries many never even considered.

The Verdict:
What can I say about this book other than Laini Taylor has me hook line and sinker! It completely lives up to the rich world and characters that she has in her previous series - Daughter of Smoke and Bone. If anything, the novel is even better, embellished with the bright images of a dream world disconnected from our own universe.

A few spoilers below the cut, but nothing too telling!

Alexander Hamilton was a dreamer. George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson were dreamers. I stand on this stage tonight and in this theater surrounded by dreamers. Dreamers like Lin Manuel who had a big idea and worked tirelessly over six years to bring it to life. Dreamers like Tommy and Andy and Alex and the extraordinary company of Hamilton who have showed up at our theater almost every single day for the last year and a half to share their vision of America. To the most supportive, appreciative, and diverse audience I have ever witnessed, Hamilton, An American Musical, embodies the best values, the best impulses that make our nation a beacon to the world. Inclusiveness, generosity, ingenuity, and the will to work hard to make our dreams come true. Look around, look around, how lucky we are to be alive right now. Thank you.
