    Can you imagine a world without sleep? Asthe sun rises in each time zone, people around the globe realize thatno one was able to sleep the night before. There's no relief the next night or in the following days. Sleep Over is a collection of interviews with survivors whoexpl...

    ***Note: I received a copy curtesy of Netgalley and Skyhorse Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Very interesting premises: one day, totally out of the blue, people can't sleep anymore - at all! The most affected are the youngsters and the old, pregnant women suffer spontan...

    I had tremendously high expectations on this one and had been waiting a very VERY long time for the release since first hearing about it and about those expectations, hhhmmmmmmm, well, they were met. I had a lot of fun reading this, there was nothing too heavy, nothing too gory or viol...

    I enjoyed myself with this book so much, going to give it 5 stars as a dyed in the wool insomniac, even though it relies heavily upon the World War Z format. In fact, in one place of the book, one of the characters remarks upon World War Zzz, which would be an excellent name for this b...

    Book Review Title: Sleep Over Author: H. G. Bells Genre: Horror Rating: DNF Review: What I can gather from the blurb is that Sleep Over is a collection of waking nightmares, a scrapbook collection of haunting and poignant stories from those trapped in a world where the pillars of ...

    I loved how this book was written! The style lends itself to people who don?t usually have long periods of uninterrupted quiet. Every few pages is a good stopping point so it?s great to read when you know you might get interrupted. The story is told from a ton of different points...

    Meh. ...

    Not a shabby sci-fi/horror concept -- a plague of prolonged insomnia brings humanity to its knees -- but the oral history framework ends up working to the novel's detriment, as the writing isn't strong enough to atone for the (structurally inherent) lack of characters and plot. Yes, th...

    Really enjoyed this book. An interesting look into a world without sleep. Liked that it gave multiple perspectives from different people around the world and their experience during the event. The story beginnings seemed abrupt and choppy, this could have been a kindle issue but made i...

    A wonderfully chilling apocalyptic book that questions what would become of the world if no-one was able to sleep? We follow the story as the world breaks apart, bit by bit. The horror created by the insomnia of the entire human race is easily comparable to that of zombies or kille...

    A REALLY interesting idea that was well explored. One or two of the accounts got boring but on the whole I was completely intrigued. ...

    You must?ve had a sleepless night. Working on that work project? Studying for finals? Writing that long essay? You go out in the morning, deliver your work, manage to get through the day until it?s finally time to get home. You go to sleep earlier than usual, and that moment when y...

    2.75 Sleep over is a book made of a bunch of experiences written and narrated by different people all around the world. The first hundred pages are so perfect, they are interesting and captivating. They can be hard to read. There are described facts that are painful, as children self...

    It's nice to see another book written in the oral history format of WWZ. There was a lot of good science about insomnia in here, and some really well thought out scenarios. There's a kernel of a good book in here somewhere. That being said... 1) Typos. Typos, everywhere... consider...

    I generally liked it a lot- almost 4 stars. Loved the vignettes, but I was frustrated by the fact that we'd hear someone for 5 pages, and then never again. And everyone (with a very few exceptions) sounded the same, no matter where they were from. It's certainly an interesting premise,...

    This book is written in the exact same "interview" style as World War Z (which I LOVED), but unfortunately, Sleep Over wasn't nearly as compelling or captivating. The concept (no one in the world can sleep) is extremely fascinating, and I was definitely interested as the first few ...

    Great Apocalypse Story I haven't enjoyed an apocalypse so much since Stephen King's novel The Stand although this is a completely different animal. There's no binary good vs evil philosophical underpinnings to ponder. There are also no monsters and no real answers to what happened a...

    What would become of the world if every living human suddenly could not sleep? What would become of our infrastructure? Could we still function in a relatively structured society or would we turn to rage and despair when our leaders could not save us? The book consists of personal tes...

    2.5 Stars. An interesting documentation on what the world would be like if we couldn't sleep. Some of these stories hit me really hard, and I think the author captured all difference walks of life incredibly well and highlighted some of the struggles and tragedies that come from be...

    I wasn't sure about this one, but it was free so I gave it a try and wasn't sorry. Consider - what would happen to the world if some trigger in all humans tripped and suddenly we could no longer sleep? The book is presented as a round up of survivors' experiences, each describing one d...

    In terms of creativity, this book was off the scale. A TEOTWAWKI story that doesn't rely on zombies, aliens, an EMP, or a standard plague = rare! I really enjoyed how things unfolded in the book. The stories were grouped into time frames, and each person's story revealed more detai...

    A highly original apocalypse scenario. There's obvious Max Brooks influence here (World War Zzz?) and the book falls somewhat short of that mark because of issues with format. Brooks' brief introductions of each character and explanations of the specific interview conditions are absent...

    This was an interesting read in general and as an insomniac. This book made me appreciate Ambien even more than I do now. The idea of a sleep apocalypse seems kind of silly at first, but when was the last time you had to go to work after a sleepless night? It sucks. I also really love ...

    I love the author?s...pen name? Real name? H.G. Bells. Awesome. And her novel was a fascinating and horrific take on the apocalypse - what happens when humans are unable to sleep. I couldn?t put the book down, and it was very well written. What keeps it from four stars is the fact ...

    I loved how this book was written! The style lends itself to people who don?t usually have long periods of uninterrupted quiet. Every few pages is a good stopping point so it?s great to read when you know you might get interrupted. The story is told from a ton of different points...

    Meh. ...

    Not a shabby sci-fi/horror concept -- a plague of prolonged insomnia brings humanity to its knees -- but the oral history framework ends up working to the novel's detriment, as the writing isn't strong enough to atone for the (structurally inherent) lack of characters and plot. Yes, th...

    Really enjoyed this book. An interesting look into a world without sleep. Liked that it gave multiple perspectives from different people around the world and their experience during the event. The story beginnings seemed abrupt and choppy, this could have been a kindle issue but made i...

    A wonderfully chilling apocalyptic book that questions what would become of the world if no-one was able to sleep? We follow the story as the world breaks apart, bit by bit. The horror created by the insomnia of the entire human race is easily comparable to that of zombies or kille...

    A REALLY interesting idea that was well explored. One or two of the accounts got boring but on the whole I was completely intrigued. ...

    You must?ve had a sleepless night. Working on that work project? Studying for finals? Writing that long essay? You go out in the morning, deliver your work, manage to get through the day until it?s finally time to get home. You go to sleep earlier than usual, and that moment when y...

    If you enjoy my review of Sleep Over, check out my blog Too Long; Didn't Read: Polysyllabic Book Reviews at www.TLDRBookBlog.com! I received an ARC eBook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The first thing I have to say about Sleep Over: An Oral History of the Apocal...

    2.75 Sleep over is a book made of a bunch of experiences written and narrated by different people all around the world. The first hundred pages are so perfect, they are interesting and captivating. They can be hard to read. There are described facts that are painful, as children self...

    It's nice to see another book written in the oral history format of WWZ. There was a lot of good science about insomnia in here, and some really well thought out scenarios. There's a kernel of a good book in here somewhere. That being said... 1) Typos. Typos, everywhere... consider...

    I generally liked it a lot- almost 4 stars. Loved the vignettes, but I was frustrated by the fact that we'd hear someone for 5 pages, and then never again. And everyone (with a very few exceptions) sounded the same, no matter where they were from. It's certainly an interesting premise,...

    This book is written in the exact same "interview" style as World War Z (which I LOVED), but unfortunately, Sleep Over wasn't nearly as compelling or captivating. The concept (no one in the world can sleep) is extremely fascinating, and I was definitely interested as the first few ...

    Great Apocalypse Story I haven't enjoyed an apocalypse so much since Stephen King's novel The Stand although this is a completely different animal. There's no binary good vs evil philosophical underpinnings to ponder. There are also no monsters and no real answers to what happened a...

    What would become of the world if every living human suddenly could not sleep? What would become of our infrastructure? Could we still function in a relatively structured society or would we turn to rage and despair when our leaders could not save us? The book consists of personal tes...

    2.5 Stars. An interesting documentation on what the world would be like if we couldn't sleep. Some of these stories hit me really hard, and I think the author captured all difference walks of life incredibly well and highlighted some of the struggles and tragedies that come from be...

    I wasn't sure about this one, but it was free so I gave it a try and wasn't sorry. Consider - what would happen to the world if some trigger in all humans tripped and suddenly we could no longer sleep? The book is presented as a round up of survivors' experiences, each describing one d...

    In terms of creativity, this book was off the scale. A TEOTWAWKI story that doesn't rely on zombies, aliens, an EMP, or a standard plague = rare! I really enjoyed how things unfolded in the book. The stories were grouped into time frames, and each person's story revealed more detai...

    A thoroughly enjoyable and fast-paced read. If duties like work and family hadn't pulled me away I would have read it even more quickly. There were some voice issues throughout (the different perspectives all have exactly the same voice, regardless of age, gender, nationality, etc),...

    A highly original apocalypse scenario. There's obvious Max Brooks influence here (World War Zzz?) and the book falls somewhat short of that mark because of issues with format. Brooks' brief introductions of each character and explanations of the specific interview conditions are absent...

    This was an interesting read in general and as an insomniac. This book made me appreciate Ambien even more than I do now. The idea of a sleep apocalypse seems kind of silly at first, but when was the last time you had to go to work after a sleepless night? It sucks. I also really love ...

    I love the author?s...pen name? Real name? H.G. Bells. Awesome. And her novel was a fascinating and horrific take on the apocalypse - what happens when humans are unable to sleep. I couldn?t put the book down, and it was very well written. What keeps it from four stars is the fact ...

    I generally don't like horror. But World War Z was ok. Probably because each story is short. I found this one ok too. The premise is interesting - people just stop sleeping. The impacts are well explored from babies to art to gamers to power to doctors to ... The book has a few s...

    I generally liked it a lot- almost 4 stars. Loved the vignettes, but I was frustrated by the fact that we'd hear someone for 5 pages, and then never again. And everyone (with a very few exceptions) sounded the same, no matter where they were from. It's certainly an interesting premise,...

    This book is written in the exact same "interview" style as World War Z (which I LOVED), but unfortunately, Sleep Over wasn't nearly as compelling or captivating. The concept (no one in the world can sleep) is extremely fascinating, and I was definitely interested as the first few ...

    Great Apocalypse Story I haven't enjoyed an apocalypse so much since Stephen King's novel The Stand although this is a completely different animal. There's no binary good vs evil philosophical underpinnings to ponder. There are also no monsters and no real answers to what happened a...

    What would become of the world if every living human suddenly could not sleep? What would become of our infrastructure? Could we still function in a relatively structured society or would we turn to rage and despair when our leaders could not save us? The book consists of personal tes...

    2.5 Stars. An interesting documentation on what the world would be like if we couldn't sleep. Some of these stories hit me really hard, and I think the author captured all difference walks of life incredibly well and highlighted some of the struggles and tragedies that come from be...

    I wasn't sure about this one, but it was free so I gave it a try and wasn't sorry. Consider - what would happen to the world if some trigger in all humans tripped and suddenly we could no longer sleep? The book is presented as a round up of survivors' experiences, each describing one d...

    In terms of creativity, this book was off the scale. A TEOTWAWKI story that doesn't rely on zombies, aliens, an EMP, or a standard plague = rare! I really enjoyed how things unfolded in the book. The stories were grouped into time frames, and each person's story revealed more detai...

    A thoroughly enjoyable and fast-paced read. If duties like work and family hadn't pulled me away I would have read it even more quickly. There were some voice issues throughout (the different perspectives all have exactly the same voice, regardless of age, gender, nationality, etc),...

    A highly original apocalypse scenario. There's obvious Max Brooks influence here (World War Zzz?) and the book falls somewhat short of that mark because of issues with format. Brooks' brief introductions of each character and explanations of the specific interview conditions are absent...

    This was an interesting read in general and as an insomniac. This book made me appreciate Ambien even more than I do now. The idea of a sleep apocalypse seems kind of silly at first, but when was the last time you had to go to work after a sleepless night? It sucks. I also really love ...

    I love the author?s...pen name? Real name? H.G. Bells. Awesome. And her novel was a fascinating and horrific take on the apocalypse - what happens when humans are unable to sleep. I couldn?t put the book down, and it was very well written. What keeps it from four stars is the fact ...

    I generally don't like horror. But World War Z was ok. Probably because each story is short. I found this one ok too. The premise is interesting - people just stop sleeping. The impacts are well explored from babies to art to gamers to power to doctors to ... The book has a few s...

    Enjoyable book with a unique story line I really enjoyed that the books is written showing the experience of a number of different people during the Insomnia Plague. It was very well written and so realistic it almost made me crawl out of my skin thinking about not being able to sle...

    Can you imagine a world without sleep? Asthe sun rises in each time zone, people around the globe realize thatno one was able to sleep the night before. There's no relief the next night or in the following days. Sleep Over is a collection of interviews with survivors whoexpl...

    ***Note: I received a copy curtesy of Netgalley and Skyhorse Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Very interesting premises: one day, totally out of the blue, people can't sleep anymore - at all! The most affected are the youngsters and the old, pregnant women suffer spontan...

    I had tremendously high expectations on this one and had been waiting a very VERY long time for the release since first hearing about it and about those expectations, hhhmmmmmmm, well, they were met. I had a lot of fun reading this, there was nothing too heavy, nothing too gory or viol...

    I enjoyed myself with this book so much, going to give it 5 stars as a dyed in the wool insomniac, even though it relies heavily upon the World War Z format. In fact, in one place of the book, one of the characters remarks upon World War Zzz, which would be an excellent name for this b...

    Book Review Title: Sleep Over Author: H. G. Bells Genre: Horror Rating: DNF Review: What I can gather from the blurb is that Sleep Over is a collection of waking nightmares, a scrapbook collection of haunting and poignant stories from those trapped in a world where the pillars of ...

    I loved how this book was written! The style lends itself to people who don?t usually have long periods of uninterrupted quiet. Every few pages is a good stopping point so it?s great to read when you know you might get interrupted. The story is told from a ton of different points...

    Meh. ...

    Not a shabby sci-fi/horror concept -- a plague of prolonged insomnia brings humanity to its knees -- but the oral history framework ends up working to the novel's detriment, as the writing isn't strong enough to atone for the (structurally inherent) lack of characters and plot. Yes, th...

    Really enjoyed this book. An interesting look into a world without sleep. Liked that it gave multiple perspectives from different people around the world and their experience during the event. The story beginnings seemed abrupt and choppy, this could have been a kindle issue but made i...

    A wonderfully chilling apocalyptic book that questions what would become of the world if no-one was able to sleep? We follow the story as the world breaks apart, bit by bit. The horror created by the insomnia of the entire human race is easily comparable to that of zombies or kille...

    A REALLY interesting idea that was well explored. One or two of the accounts got boring but on the whole I was completely intrigued. ...

    You must?ve had a sleepless night. Working on that work project? Studying for finals? Writing that long essay? You go out in the morning, deliver your work, manage to get through the day until it?s finally time to get home. You go to sleep earlier than usual, and that moment when y...

    2.75 Sleep over is a book made of a bunch of experiences written and narrated by different people all around the world. The first hundred pages are so perfect, they are interesting and captivating. They can be hard to read. There are described facts that are painful, as children self...

    It's nice to see another book written in the oral history format of WWZ. There was a lot of good science about insomnia in here, and some really well thought out scenarios. There's a kernel of a good book in here somewhere. That being said... 1) Typos. Typos, everywhere... consider...

    I generally liked it a lot- almost 4 stars. Loved the vignettes, but I was frustrated by the fact that we'd hear someone for 5 pages, and then never again. And everyone (with a very few exceptions) sounded the same, no matter where they were from. It's certainly an interesting premise,...

    This book is written in the exact same "interview" style as World War Z (which I LOVED), but unfortunately, Sleep Over wasn't nearly as compelling or captivating. The concept (no one in the world can sleep) is extremely fascinating, and I was definitely interested as the first few ...

    Great Apocalypse Story I haven't enjoyed an apocalypse so much since Stephen King's novel The Stand although this is a completely different animal. There's no binary good vs evil philosophical underpinnings to ponder. There are also no monsters and no real answers to what happened a...

    What would become of the world if every living human suddenly could not sleep? What would become of our infrastructure? Could we still function in a relatively structured society or would we turn to rage and despair when our leaders could not save us? The book consists of personal tes...

    2.5 Stars. An interesting documentation on what the world would be like if we couldn't sleep. Some of these stories hit me really hard, and I think the author captured all difference walks of life incredibly well and highlighted some of the struggles and tragedies that come from be...

    I wasn't sure about this one, but it was free so I gave it a try and wasn't sorry. Consider - what would happen to the world if some trigger in all humans tripped and suddenly we could no longer sleep? The book is presented as a round up of survivors' experiences, each describing one d...

    In terms of creativity, this book was off the scale. A TEOTWAWKI story that doesn't rely on zombies, aliens, an EMP, or a standard plague = rare! I really enjoyed how things unfolded in the book. The stories were grouped into time frames, and each person's story revealed more detai...

    A thoroughly enjoyable and fast-paced read. If duties like work and family hadn't pulled me away I would have read it even more quickly. There were some voice issues throughout (the different perspectives all have exactly the same voice, regardless of age, gender, nationality, etc),...

    A highly original apocalypse scenario. There's obvious Max Brooks influence here (World War Zzz?) and the book falls somewhat short of that mark because of issues with format. Brooks' brief introductions of each character and explanations of the specific interview conditions are absent...
