    One thought on “Daydreams on the Sherbet Shore”

    1. I received a copy of this book from the author to read with my hometown Young Women's Book Club. I enjoyed this short, fun read :) It was extremely creative and truly fit the purpose of feeling like a dream!Sometimes, especially the first chapter I had a hard time figuring out what was going on. The characters just appeared in the book without much of an introduction, so I had a hard time understanding who they were and what they represented. Also, what were their personalities like and what did [...]

    2. I read this book for the Young Women's Book Club. I chose to give this book three stars because I liked that the book was very creative and dreamlike, fitting the theme perfectly. However I had a difficult time following who all of the characters were because the transitions between stories made it difficult pick up where the last dream left off. The poems at the end of the book were very good. Thank you J.D. for sending us your book!

    3. J. D. Estrada invites us to the realm of his dreams, which he presents as his own wonderland. Through his narrative, he makes the absurd and fantastical seem believable and fun. The narrative’s simplicity makes the book one of those I enjoy while I want a break from much longer books (which I do like too). My favorite part, I would have to say was the Kung-Fu circus, with its flaming dragon and the dancer who controls fire, among other interesting entertainments. I only wished I had read the p [...]

    4. wow, this felt just like a daydream.The first time in ages I actually liked the whimsical writing. It was the perfect little escape from everyday life.And I loved the poetry at the end and the fact that characters from Only Human popped up in this short story. these cameos were fun and funny.The little book felt like an extension of the Human Cycle as the Lucid has an important role in it. I found it almost a shame our darling Nathaniel Runnels didn't get a cameoere was one thing though, a thing [...]

    5. Daydreams on the Sherbet Shore is a whimsical, strange, and fun collection of short stories. I suggest these for any insomniac who has given up on their own dreams for the night. Delve into the world with tickle soda, the world with a lovely sidekick who carries a heart compass, a world where worry wolves do not win for once.Reminiscent of Beetleguice or Alice in Wonderland, this series would translate well to film.My only warning is Estrada relishes in providing details for delicious treats thr [...]

    6. A recommended fun readExcellent read with good characters and humour , found myself laughing out loud, and that's not like me, well done J. D. ESTRADA

    7. I really enjoyed the world building aspect of your book. I was able to truly feel transported to a magical land. However, I thought that the world building was the best part of the story. I did not really find myself drawn to the story, and it did not feel cohesive or completed to me.

    8. This collection of short stories is creatively crafted to draw the reader into the world of Draem. As with most dreams, where one ends is usually not where the next one begins.J.D. is an overworked character whose boss is Faet. Together with his dream time friend, Claudette, the Sherbet Shore has become an endless expanse filled with exciting adventures and unusual creatures. Picnics, parties, and a trip to the circus. In dreams, anything can, and does, happen.Not all adventures are happy, thoug [...]

    9. I received this book for my book club. While I like the general idea of the book, I thought that it would have been more beneficial for the poems to be before the start of the chapters to introduce the characters. I thought the poems were a wonderful description of the characters and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I was confused as to why they were just thrown at the end of the book. The transitions from chapters were a tad unorganized in my opinion. Other than that, thank you for sending us books a [...]
