The Dreamtaker is an inspiring book by Chad Burn which tells a story of a sergeant who has a keen mind with a compassionate spirit and how he was able to pull through the obstacles he encountered. In the book, a man who is convinced he can undo his inept decisions keeps trying to control something that he is not in control of which results in consequences he cannot accept. Those involved with him learn along the way that their choices also may not have the desired effect.
The Dreamtaker, set during the time of the Vietnam War, tries to be many things at once, and for every part it succeeds. The characters, for the most part, are sympathetic and well developed. The Dreamtaker was written with lots of vivid detail and good, strong language. Some scenes surrounding the monstrosities committed during the Vietnam War are harrowing and definitely not for faint-hearted. It’s a very humane story.
The Dreamtaker is a worthy and must-read for not only historical fiction lovers, but anyone who loves empowering excitement. It is a book that grabs your attention from the very first page due to its striking mix of literary elements.
