    Bohjalian's books are always a unique experience.

    You never know what you're going to get with a Chris Bohjalian novel. To date, he has written nineteen of them and every single one is its own unique experience. With The Sleepwalker, his initial thoughts were to write a story about dreams but when he met with the director of a sleep center as part of his research, sleepwalking came up and Mr. Bohjalian was so fascinated with this topic that he incorporated this element instead. I learned so, so much about the subject of parasomnia. I can see why the author himself became so enthralled by it! However, the overall mystery of The Sleepwalker kinda puttered along with moments of intriguing suspicion until the big reveal at the very end...and then the other big reveal at the very, very end. You have to wait for it. The ending had my jaw dropping for sure but I can't say that it had me overlooking the lengthy-feeling journey there. It did warrant an additional 1/2 star from me, bumping up my rating from a 3 to a rounded-up 4 but that's about it. After having the full experience, I would recommend The Sleepwalker to fans of mysteries and definitely to fans of Chris Bohjalian. Check it out! My favorite quote: “Sometimes I’m not sure which hits us harder,” he said, his voice growing wistful, “that relief when we wake up from a nightmare and realize it was just a dream, or the sadness when we wake up from a good dream—a really good dream—and realize that nothing was real.” “And then there are moments like this: you’re wide awake and wish you weren’t. You wish it was just a dream.”
