A Dream of Wessex

By Christopher Priest

Rating: 3 stars

I have to admit that I approached this book with some trepidation, having not really liked The Separation, but I enjoyed this quite a lot. It’s about a group of scientists who explore the nature of reality by creating their own “projected” world and living in it, with alternate personalities for months at a time. A nice little piece about the nature of reality, and a good human story of conflict with one of the participants having to deal with an abusive ex-boyfriend. The end was confusing, but when you get layers of reality like this, it often is. It could probably do with a re-read.
