One thought on “Cat and The Dreamer”

  1. I give it a 4.5 rating.The book is basically a first person narration. A poignant, raw and very hard hitting portrayal of a woman - a survivor of a suicide pact, trapped in a teenager's mind, who struggles her way through the art of living.I loved the wordplay, realistic conversations and the process of Julia's slow awakening to reality and freedom.The book deals with the effects of bullying on young minds, covertly which works for it.An excellent choice for reading on a weekendd of course, havi [...]

  2. Originally posted on my blog, The Reader's Commute:Julia is a very sad and shy narrator, reflecting often on her friend's suicide. Her narration is poignant and heartbreaking, with lots of beautiful imagery on every page. There was some initial confusion as italicized passages were introduced into the story, but I soon learned that the use of italics signified a slip into Julia's imagination and daydreams. Some of these scenes are horrific, detailed accounts of Julia's daydreams of death (the bu [...]

  3. I have to say right away that this book was not what I expected. The writing style is very different in that we are inside the protagonist's head and she jumps from reality to dream world often. This happens constantly, in the midst of conversations, at work, on the bus, etc. It is interesting to see daydreams intersect with reality as so many of us understand where our day dreams can take us. We dream about the life we could have, wish we had. Julia does this often, and she also fights with dem [...]

  4. In this story we have Julia who survived an attempted suicide with her first and only friend. Rachel died but Julia woke up on the day of Julia’s funeral. But her life truly ended at that same time. We see a 29 year old woman basically stuck in her own head and still living the life of a 15 year old. She lives in a fantasy land that is until Adam steps into her life. I will NOT go into any secrets or tell you what happens but I will say that the Author has created a character in Julia that we [...]

  5. This is a book which I struggle to rate. Is it a 3 or is a 4.Julia survives an attempted suicide when she was a teenager - unfortunately her only friend dies.On the day of Rachels funeral Julia is still in hospital and doesn't get to go. This is something she can't live down and can't let go of.To get away from the guilt that hangs over her and her mother who is just too over protective, she likes to escape to her own little dream world.That is until Adam comes along, he just arrives in the the [...]

  6. This is a very interesting read. It's well crafted and original. The technique of drifting in, out, and between of the narrator's reality and her hallucinations and delusions is well done. It is occasionally confusing as to which you are in, but that's the desired effect. Crawford walks the line between presenting her protagonist's obvious deficiencies and keeping her sympathetic. It is never clear whether Julia's oppression by her coworkers is real or imagined. By the end, you don't know whethe [...]

  7. Fourteen years ago, when she was fifteen, Julia attempted to commit suicide with her friend, Rachel. Rachel passed away, but she lived on. All these years she’s been trapped by her past: the suicide pact, bullying she experienced in high school, and overprotective parents. In the present, she has a mother who continues to be overprotective, a malicious coworker throwing barbs at her, and a handsome coworker she daydreams about. It’s not easy getting over all that’s happened, but maybe she [...]

  8. This is a story about bullying and the tragic consequences that can arise and continue to cause harm to an individual. I really enjoyed the way this novel was structured, unfolding past events gradually through flashback and weaving Julia's fantasies with her reality. I thought the second person address for her antagonist, Cat, worked well. At times Cat's behaviour seemed beyond belief, and Julia's burgeoning relationship with Adam a little too idealistic at the start; however, as this was told [...]

  9. I finished Cat and the Dreamer yesterday and I'm still thinking about it today - which is always a good sign! I loved the way true events and imagined events were interspersed throughout the story. In spite of the unusual situation of being the survivor of a suicide pact, Julia is very easy to relate to. This is the kind of book you could read over and over, and always spot something new to think about. A definite must read!

  10. I really enjoyed this book. The inner turmoil and journey taken by the main character hooked me. It was an interesting peek into a life and the events which affected it.I hope Ms. Crawford keeps publishing. I'd read whatever she writes.

  11. I read this novella in one sitting and loved it. It's a very powerful and emotional story, and it's hard to imagine any reader not being touched by the character of Julia. A moving tale that went right to my heart. I look forward to reading more of Crawford's work.

  12. I downloaded a Kindle app to my tablet so I could read "Cat and the Dreamer" and I am so glad I did. What a well-crafted story! And the ending was satisfying too.
