Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC of this book.
This book was absolutely not what I expected – in the best way, possible.
I always enter into reading “dream dictionaries” with a bit of skepticism; surface-level descriptions of what XYZ must mean. This book went far beyond that.
I am astounded at the amount of research Saul went into for this book, and do not find it “uncomfortable” as it has been mentioned by other reviewers. In fact, I find it simply solidified the absolute certainty that our dreams have a significant value in our everyday life. Thousands of years of study are evidence of that, and Saul shares that wisdom with her readers.
Anyone with a toe in the world of the metaphysical will know and understand how the moon can impact our daily lives, but to read about how it could influence our subconscious, and, subsequently, the meaning of the symbolism in our dreams, was truly fascinating.
Of course, since it’s a dictionary, I haven’t made it through all the item descriptions. In fact, this is one of those books that I would love to have in physical format so I can reference it more easily as I wake.
Brilliant. Easily my favourite “dream dictionary” I’ve ever encountered.
