      Full text online:gutenberg/catalog/worlIt's a beautiful story about two soulmates who are brought together by destiny but kept apart by circumstance (specifically a life prison sentence), yet who manage to create a life together by constructing a virtual parallel world in the astral realm made of every past experience and memory they've ever had in their lives, which they look forward to going to every night when they sleep. They walk among their unchanging, fully reconstructed memories (like in [...]

      Reading the info on this book above I''m not sure I've got the right one, but I'm pretty sure "Peter Ibbetson" by George Du Maurier was published in 1891 and not 1963, but anyway:Peter Ibbetson is a romantic novel from the late Victorian era - poignant, melancholic and deeply nostalgic, with a paranormal twist. The plot makes use of the idea of a shared lucid dream in bringing together lovers who are otherwise separated in waking reality, by class and circumstance. Although a powerful love story [...]

      I skimmed a lot of this book. While seemingly exciting things happen, they are glossed over in favor of long passages about Peter does with his dreamtime girlfriend, Mary. They chat a lot and look at stuff. And go to concerts. The author even makes a statement at one point to the effect that his waking life is not worth describing, as it would only be interesting as a foil to his delightful sleeping life. Well, precisely; this book needs a foil to uneventful picnics with your girlfriend! Sometim [...]

      « Η ελπίδα για όλους εκείνους τους εραστές των απώτερων Συμπάντων του Άχρονου χρόνου… Του ασυγχρόνιστου.»Για αυτό ακριβώς πρόκειται αυτό το βιβλίο. Όλοι όσοι ερωτεύτηκαν θανάσιμα και δεν κατάφεραν ποτέ να συγχρονίσουν τους ρυθμούς τους, αντί να αφεθούν μοιραία και να σβή [...]

      This book gets off to a slow start. DuMaurier loves describing trivial things (mostly nostalgic details about France) for pages on end. But once Peter Ibbetson learns to "dream true" (some kind of lucid dreaming/astral projection combination that allows him to meet with his lady love while he is in prison) this book becomes very cool. I really enjoyed reading about the dream paradise that DuMaurier imagines for Peter and the Duchess of Towers. I am interested to find out more about this book's r [...]

      Read for Advanced Critical Reading.It's a long while since I've read anything by Du Maurier and it was nice to return to his writing style. He has a way of capturing a feeling that sets him apart from everyone else. I love how he builds the dream worlds, and he manages to put his finger on a childhood feeling of daydreaming that I think is rather difficult to capture.

      Great book. Kind of dry in the first half, but really comes alive later. I read it after watching the film on TMC. The book was a lot better than the movie which changed the story, possibly to make the novel's somewhat supernatural plot seem more believable.

      One of the original "dreams are reality" books and a great love story to boot!
