Review of Sleepless by Cyn Balog

MR. SANDMAN BRING ME A DREAM! Now that is out of my system, I thought I would provide you with a brief review on Sleepless by Cyn Balog.

Sleepless by Cyn Balog centers around a sandman named Eron. Eron has a charge named Julia. It is his job, as a sandman, to lull people to sleep every night. He grows attached to Julia. Of course, Julia’s boyfriend dies within the first few pages of Sleepless by Cyn Balog, and what do you know, he eventually winds up becoming a sandman. Julia, though, is dealing with grief and unwanted attention from her boyfriend’s best friend.

Unfortunately, I read Sleepless a few months ago and am quite fuzzy on the details. What I remember is that this was a very, very quick read. I absolutely did not like Julia’s boyfriend at all. He was rude and never emotionally committed to her. He was belittling. He turned every moment into a joke. That is not cool to me. Eron, on the other hand, he was a perfect gentleman, but I never really got a full sense of Eron. Perhaps that is because Sleepless by Cyn Balog is so brief?

I did enjoy Sleepless, but I was never fully engaged with it. After finishing the book, I didn’t exactly think about it. It was sort of one of those books that you read just to have something to read. Yes, the story is interesting, but it did not stay with me.
