In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America--addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland. With a great reporter's narrative skill and the storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones weaves together two classic tales of capitalism run amok whose unintentional collision has been catastrophic. The unfettered prescribing of pain medications during the 1990s reached its peak in Purdue Pharma's campaign to market OxyContin, its new, expensive--extremely addictive--miracle painkiller. Meanwhile, a massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel--assaulted small town and mid-sized cities across the country, driven by a brilliant, almost unbeatable marketing and distribution system. Together these phenomena continue to lay waste to communities from Tennessee to Oregon, Indiana to New Mexico. Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents--Quinones shows how these tales fit together. Dreamland is a revelatory account of the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.

Dreamland Book Review:

Bob Lazar is the reason Area 51 became infamous in the 1980s and his recent appearance on Joe Rogan's podcast with 7 million listeners is credited with inspiring the Storm Area 51 phenomenon. In his DREAMLAND autobiography, Lazar reveals every detail of his highly controversial story about being an insider within the world's most legendary military research base. Bob Lazar was a brilliant young physicist that found himself employed at a top secret facility in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas. Under the watchful eye of the government elite, he is tasked with understanding an exotic propulsion system being used by an advanced aerospace vehicle he is told came from outer space. The stressful work and long, odd hours start to wear on Bob and he becomes concerned for his safety. He tells his wife and a couple close friends about what he's doing in the desert, and his employers find out and are furious. When they station goons outside his house, Bob seeks help from wealthy UFOlogist, John Lear, who encourages Bob to take his story to award-winning investigative journalist George Knapp at KLAS-TV, a CBS affiliate. To prove he's telling the truth, Bob takes a group of people out into the desert to watch a test flight of the "flying saucer." On the way home, they are stopped by the police, who notify the base, and Bob loses his job. In a series of interviews with CBS TV, Bob Lazar then blows the lid off "Area 51," blows the whistle on the effort to conceal this craft from the American people, and blows up his career as a top physicist. Bob Lazar's reports have been the subject of intense controversy for decades. He has been interviewed numerous times and his story has been corroborated by other individuals he worked with and who were present when these events happened. But until now, Bob Lazar has never told his own story, in every detail in his own words, about those exciting days in the desert outside of Las Vegas and how the world came to learn about the experiments being conducted at Area 51.

Dreamland Book Review:

Dea Donahue has been able to travel through people's dreams since she was six years old. Her mother taught her the three rules of walking: Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person's dream more than once. Dea has never questioned her mother, not about the rules, not about the clocks or the mirrors, not about moving from place to place to be one step ahead of the unseen monsters that Dea's mother is certain are right behind them. Then a mysterious new boy, Connor, comes to town and Dea finally starts to feel normal. As Connor breaks down the walls that she's had up for so long, he gets closer to learning her secret. For the first time she wonders if that's so bad. But when Dea breaks the rules, the boundary between worlds begins to deteriorate. How can she know what's real and what's not?

Dreamland Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep Book Review:

An engrossing examination of the science behind the little-known world of sleep. Like many of us, journalist David K. Randall never gave sleep much thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking. One midnight crash into a hallway wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep. In Dreamland, Randall explores the research that is investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third of our lives. Taking readers from military battlefields to children’s bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn't as simple as it seems. Why did the results of one sleep study change the bookmakers’ odds for certain Monday Night Football games? Do women sleep differently than men? And if you happen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, does that count as murder? This book is a tour of the often odd, sometimes disturbing, and always fascinating things that go on in the peculiar world of sleep. You’ll never look at your pillow the same way again.

Dreamland YA edition Book Review:

As an adult book, Sam Quinones's Dreamland took the world by storm, winning the NBCC Award for General Nonfiction and hitting at least a dozen Best Book of the Year lists. Now, adapted for the first time for a young adult audience, this compelling reporting explains the roots of the current opiate crisis. In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland. Quinones explains how the rise of the prescription drug OxyContin, a miraculous and extremely addictive painkiller pushed by pharmaceutical companies, paralleled the massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel. Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharmaceutical pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, teens, and parents--Dreamland is a revelatory account of the massive threat facing America and its heartland.

Dreamland Book Review:

Arnold Joint is a middle-aged jovial detective working for the South Africa Police Department. For the last three years he’s been haunted by the unsolved murder of Samantha, his sister, and supported by his boss and colleagues he got by and tried to focus on other important cases. But the picture of his murdered sibling is unexpectedly and painfully brought up from his memory when the body of a young beautiful woman, along with her lover’s, is found exactly in the same condition as Samatha’s: a clean cut separating her head from her torso and the mysterious tattoo of a rose inked on her skin in a very intimate position. This time Detective Joint won’t stop until he finds the truth and will soon find himself entangled in a dangerous plot that involves so much more than he can imagine. When Nick Scott receives the call from a distraught Veronica Bings, the last thing he expects is to learn that his friend Mark, a pioneer in the development of Virtual Reality Software and Veronica’s husband, has been killed. But Nick, ex Major in the Royal Marines and founder of Executive Decision, an international security company, knows how to take the matter into his own hands and immediately starts digging into Mark’s murder, discovering the potential and the menace hidden in the depths of Virtual Reality, a parallel electronic world connecting every device with internet access. Matt Carbutt’s debut novel is an engaging, dark, layered thriller in which nothing is as it appears, a fast-paced intriguing spy story that will manage to captivate the lovers of this literary genre with every page. Matt Carbutt was born in England and immigrated to South Africa at a very young age. He currently lives in Noordhoek, Cape Town, South Africa with his wife, his young daughter, and Justice, the family timber wolf. Over the years, due to his business commitments in the electronic security industry, Matt has travelled extensively throughout Africa, gaining invaluable knowledge and experiences from the mysterious African continent. When he isn’t writing you’ll find him sailing Moonshadow II or plotting his next novel. Dreamland, an adult thriller, is his debut novel.

Dreamland Book Review:

Roy Rempel argues that the past decade has been marked by an ideological and domestically driven foreign policy agenda that has lost sight of the national interest. As a consequence, Canada's policy options are narrowing, national sovereignty is eroding, and the country risks evolving into a protectorate of the United States. Dreamland analyzes how Canada's foreign policy has subverted the myths that Canadians believe about themselves and their place in the world.

Dreamland Book Review:

In Dreamland nothing is what it seems, so when a group of total strangers wake up in the dark, in a place they know nothing about, what could only be described as a quest begins as they search for reasoning and a way out. Having no idea how they arrived at this strange place, they must search for answers and determine who, or what, is keeping them here. Faced with real world scenarios to either succeed by doing what's necessary or perish with failure, they must learn to work together if they expect to survive. Guiding the way, and driven by a need to lead by example, ex U.S. Army Intelligence Agent Brad Miller puts his own life above all others and obtains the respect of a psychologist, a geek, a mentor, a dancer and a photojournalist. These people might be the last he ever sees, and the last friends he might ever make, as he attempts to free them from this strange place.
