“I want a dream”
Once Upon a Purple Pill is a 40-paged fictitious novel that begs the question, “what if it was possible to request for a dream?”
The story is narrated from an omniscient point of view, with backdrop of the slums of Jamaica gleaned from the lingo used which is understandable, yet curious.
It tells the story of a man who concots dreams but ironically, cannot dream.
It’s intriguing in its ways of description such that the reader feels that what is being said must be true, and the use of lingo is quite endearing. We follow the dreamer through his ordeal of finding dream matters which causes him to come upon a realm never before seen by man, and we are shown a place as beautiful as only dreams could be.
Here the writer builds up to the climax and the reader becomes quite engaged at this point.
We later find out how the he lost his ability to dream in the first place. He then becomes a prophet for what seems like a brimming war.
This book is quite a short, engaging and an interesting read, which tells us simply that no matter how painful the past is, it should not be discarded because it helps our future.
The author has other sequels which follow this one, and they are:
In a Field of Purple Dreams
