It’s the ones who don’t realize this that are being driven into the ground by the daily routine. Drama and comedy are a part of who we are.

The Dreamseller: The Calling: A Novel
Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I loved the ideology, the principles, and the motivation behind it, but on the other hand there is way too much existentialist talk for my taste, and I didn’t like how the narrating character seemed to be constatly surprised by the actions of his master. Muita pagina para repetir a mesma mensagem.
There’s a charismatic, roving wanderer who uses the Socratic method to wake up society from its ignorance and self-destruction. It’s part self-help book, part allegory. To be truthful, only a few instances were profound and most of the book felt “been there done that.
I prefer to read flowery prose; that’s just me. So I got this book as a b’day present and it seemed interesting. The thing is, the story is OK, and it has a good happy little utopic message, but the narrator is incredibly annoying in his ramblings and self-doubts. I’m all about Pollyanna and ‘things can be better’ and such, but this was too utopic even dreamselle me!
Dreamselldr, when you use the word ‘vehemently’ three times in two pages, and the word ‘insight’ every other page especially considering the word ‘insight’ was used in English in a Portuguese b So I got this book as a b’day present and it seemed interesting.
Also, when you use the word ‘vehemently’ three times in two pages, and the word ‘insight’ every other page especially considering the word ‘insight’ was used in English in a Portuguese book over and over and overyou’ll get on my nerves. Sep 26, Gina rated it it was ok. What started off as an inspiring gripping read fades off to be slow, draggy and too philosophical after the 5th chapter. The contents and concept of the story is intriguing but the writing style fails to keep me reading the pages to the end without lots of breaks in between.
It simply got too textbook heavy. O livro tem muitos elementos que remetem a filmes “pipoca” brasileiros da nova safra. At the first time that I saw this book in the book store, I felt that it’d be so amazing I read the tittle of the book and I wanted to read So, I bought an e-book and I started to read and for the first impression, I identified myself on the book But after reading page by page, it started to become a boring book with many idiot thoughts from the main character While I was reading, my thoughts were focused on how we can be a better person but the main character was always judging and dreamsellee At the first time that I saw this book in the book store, I felt that dreamselldr be so amazing While I was reading, my thoughts were focused on how we can be a better person but the main character was always judging and never learned about all the knowledges he was getting from the ‘Master’.
There are many great sentences and things that we can think and do day by day It’s a very strange book that in the end, the mystery is not callig. This is what drew my attention in the first place, but after having read it, it doesn’t even compare; the aforementioned two are more about the workings of an inner transformation.

This book seems to have more of a ‘messianic’ theme, with the dreamseller approaching each underdog and downtrodden character and reawakens them to their worth and purpose — stirring in them the remembrance of the dreams and ideals of their youth, or before they became jaded in life. And then these ‘disciples’ follow the dreamseller and go about reinvigorating proselytizing others who have abandoned their hopes and dreams.
The inner struggles of the followers are never really addressed. Conveniently, the dreamseller’s cryptic messages allow them to figure things out by themselves, or sometimes not. To me that’s what makes the story seem lacking in flow and connectivity.
The Dreamseller: The Calling
There is a sequel to this, so being that I have written a rather unflattering review — perhaps, the fullness of the ENTIRE story unfolds in the subsequent work, so I will read it too. The message here is wonderful and important personal acceptance, appreciation of the gift of life, and practicing the love of Christ with each otherbut I agree with other reviewers that its delivery in fiction form was very cloying, i.
This was just ok for me. I do enjoy philosophical novels sometimes, but I thought this one got all the ideas out it the first 10 pages. The rest of the book felt like he was beating a dead horse. I think I’ll be passing on the dreamssller. Very poorly written, repetitive, and, most of the time, the author says in every chapter what will happen next.
However, I liked the hopefulness of Cury, but too much of it became annoying. Excellent ideas but NO style. No mystery, no plot. Loved the ideas but the book is dull because of lack of style.
