    2. Mark R Brand s Life After Sleep is a sleek peak into a not so distant future where we humans use machines to control our sleep They put us instantly into REM and wake us up after 3 hours, maximizing our rest and allowing us to work longer Sounds like something most of would like, certainly me But the ramifications are interesting, and this novella explores them You find characters such as the war veteran who dreads using the machines because by entering REM and waking directly from it he faces n [...]

    3. Sci fi is not usually the genre i read the most, but i always admire the ideas that collide in Sci fi writers s brains to imagine visions of a future that could be In this instance, i felt compelled to read the book because the subject it revolves around is SLEEP I love sleeping besides, it is absolutely necessary to our survival we spend a lot of time sleeping, and yet we don t really hear much about sleep studies, and what goes on behind the actual science of sleeping In life after sleep, Bran [...]

    5. Fascinating and very funny science fiction novella about what life in the future could be like without sleep Due to the amazing regiment offered by the especially manufactured Beds, humans no longer need than a few hours of sleep at a time to function and even thrive in their daily lives But wait just a moment the side effects are starting to kick in and life gets very interesting for the cast of characters in this wonderful new novella from Mark Brand.

    6. A comment on who we are now and where we might be, that still remains grounded in all things recognizable as real, work stress, PTSD, family dynamics, and mostly, finally, sleep, how we get it, why we need it, and what happens when we can t find it

    7. Originally posted on my blog, A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall Whoa, what a world Brand has created in Life After Sleep In many ways, its society is similar to ours, but working long hours, being busy, and socializing via technology has gone to extremes Glimpses into our own culture s habits and behaviors are stark, moving, and sometimes distressing.How Sleep and the Beds work are slowly revealed over the course of the novella This left me content with the science, without ever feeling bogged down [...]

    8. I was a little disappointed in Life After Sleep I wanted to be totally blown away by it and I first, I totally was It s a fascinating exploration into the not so far out premise on what American society would do if technology was developed only requiring us to Sleep for a few hours a night The technical aspects of the book were spread out enough that I didn t feel overwhelmed by them and there wasn t a whole lot of world building to be done though the music promoter visiting virtual bars to seek [...]

    9. Loved it Very good premise and a different perspective for all of us in this hurry up and do society we live in.

    10. Proofreading pre publication copy Great idea, well worked out More like separate stories within a single underlying framework than a single novel.
