They fall in and out of love, they drift apart. Yet a decade later they are drawn back together by a series of coincidences involving their obsession with sleep - and each other.

A terrific listen
well researched page turner,
Brings factual reality to life with Narcolepsy. Well crafted, gripping novel. Lyrical language delivered brilliantly on audible. Loved every minute.
All characters were well crafted and realistic. No favourites.
Understated with the right amount of light and shade. Easy to listen to. Character voices well played without being over dramatic.
Yes, both. I have Narcolepsy. I loved the way Coe linked factual content to fiction creating a believable reality with which I could identify. I almost felt part of this fictional 'world'. I had a profound reaction to much of the content. Listening to this alone, whilst driving, I found myself shouting out at plot twists as they unfolded.
Brilliant work of fiction which integrates factual information on sleep disorders. I could see this as a high brow TV Drama.
