Summary

For Jeff Johnston, a young historical researcher for a Civil War novelist, reality is redefined on a bitter cold night near the close of a lingering winter. He meets Annie, an intense and lovely young woman suffering from vivid nightmares. Haunted by the dreamer and her unrelenting dreams, Jeff leads Annie on an emotional odyssey through the heartland of the Civil War in search of a cure.
On long-silenced battlefields their relationship blossoms - two obsessed lovers linked by unbreakable chains of history, torn by a duty that could destroy them both. Suspenseful, moving, and highly compelling, Lincoln’s Dreams is a novel of rare imaginative power.

Critic reviews

"A novel of classical proportions and virtues...humane and moving." ( The Washington Post Book World)
"A love story on more than one level, and Ms. Willis does justice to them all. It was only toward the end of the book that I realized how much tension had been generated, how engrossed I was in the characters, how much I cared about their fates." ( The New York Times Book Review)

Beyond dream

In Lincoln's Dreams Connie Willis has created characters and built a world that will both open your eyes and haunt your dreams for the rest of your life. A story of loss, obsession and love, it is also proof that ordinary humans can build more worlds and live more dreams than most gods and heroes have room for in their philosophy.

If War & Peace was a great triumph, Lincoln's Dreams is a true miracle.

Last chapter not missing

I hesitated about buying the audiobook since the only comment complained about the end missing, but took a chance on it being fixed. Luckily it was, and the end is not missing anymore.

The book convinced me once again that Connie Willis is a fabulous writer, so I will continue to listen my way through her bibliography :)

missing the last chapter

What did you like best about Lincoln's Dreams? What did you like least?

I love willis's style that sucks the reader or listener in to improbable situations and accelerates the excitement and uncertainty

Any additional comments?

last chapter was missing. the last 20 minutes was a replay of the middle of the book.
