Strange the Dreamer (by Laini Taylor)

Hey everyone! I haven’t been blogging much, due to busy and unpredictable life, but I just finished reading an amazing book. I wanted to write a review about it, because it’s one incredible story that all readers need to check out. Strange the Dreamer. I saw the title and thought, “What kind of book is this? I have to read it!”. Have you ever read a book, and as soon as you finished it, no book could compare? At least for me, every once in a while, I come across a really great book, and Strange the Dreamer was that. I have never read anything like it, it’s a true fantasy and high-action story.

Here’s the blurb from Strange the Dreamer

Strange the Dreamer

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way aroundand Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.
What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?
The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries–including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? and if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
Welcome to Weep

My thoughts

The world-building was incredible, it felt like Ms. Taylor really put some thought and effort into making Lazlo’s world as real as possible. The writing was beautiful, I rarely come across nice and flowing writing. The characters were absolutely amazing, it was fascinating watching all the pieces fit together, like how the characters were important to solving Weep’s problem. The book was absolute perfection! I’m a big fan of fantasy, but I will be the first one to admit that some fantasy has the same elements, that’s why I was curious about reading this book. I wanted to know if Strange the Dreamer would be the same ol’ same ol’, and it was not at all. I would recommend this book to all readers, even those who don’t particularly enjoy fantasy. It’s a unique book that has beautiful writing, unforgettable characters, and a memorable story about a lost city named Weep.
