Lincoln’s Dreams

By Connie Willis

Rating: 2 stars

A researcher for an author who specialises in the American Civil War meets a girl who appears to be dreaming the dreams of Civil War general Robert E. Lee, while his boss runs around trying to find symbolism in the dreams of Abraham Lincoln.

This was a good enough thriller of a book for most of the way through, but it fizzled out, without much of a climax, leaving me feeling disappointed at the end. No explanation, and nothing to make it seem worthwhile at all. Oh, and it should really have been called ‘Lee’s Dreams’, since it spends most of the book focussing on him and his story.
