Reviews

I enjoyed reading this book.

Author speaks about dreams and their interpretation; I was reminded of a micro fiction book that I published years ago where the editor told me it was a very different story and may not be liked by readers but after reading this book about dreams and how they impact on your lives, I’m sure people will like reading it.

This was a much more interesting book than I thought it might be.

The nature of dreams is something that is hard not to find fascinating. The thing is that we spend quite a bit of time dreaming – not the third of our lives we spend sleeping, but enough time to make us wonder why we dream at all. It seems incomprehensible that our dreams would be completely meaningless. But then, they can be so bizarre it is hard to know just what they might mean.

I dream my crisis unfolding by Sally Kairouze

I dream my crisis unfolding by Sally Kairouze is filled with theories about the connections between dreams and real life that she has discovered through her research. The author covers everything from the content within dreams to the strategies needed to interpret them, as well as diving into the finer aspects such as memory in dreams and connections to everyday life. Sally often quotes the extensive research that has already been done in the field of the analysis of dreams but points out that all of the work so far has been inconclusive and in essence raised more questions than it answered. In this work, the Author does her best to definitively answer the questions that we still had about interpreting our dreams.

This was one of those books I tried to read on my own back as a young college student.

This was one of those books I tried to read on my own back as a young college student. It wasn’t a part of any coursework, so I didn’t have anyone to help tie it to larger ideas. If I remember, I think I ended up making my own wacky meaning out of it… which was some sort of Jungian collective UNCS thing or another. Overall, it was fun reading this book as it discloses some of the meaningful insights

I dream my crisis unfolding by Sally Kairouze

I dream my crisis unfolding by Sally Kairouze stands as a unique and classic work
in the dreams and its exploration category. I liked the author’s hypothetical yet realistic
point of view towards the science of dreams and patterns. At some point, I could
relate to the dreams and their presence in my life because of some incidents
happened to me recently.

While Author does an excellent job in explaining

While Author does an excellent job in explaining the tracing of dreams back to
passing thoughts or unfulfilled wishes/desires, I think she attributes too many of our
passions and deepest yearnings to simple, instinctual sexuality. Sally, in my
opinion, speaks more of her own experiences and knowledge than she does to
explain the reasoning behind dreaming for the masses. This observation, however,
leads me to question the notion that one single methodology for interpreting
dreams could exist and apply to all. It seems that the encoding of dreams can only be
interpreted by the experiencing individual who can then apply the relevancies of
their life to the transcription of meaning. It was definitely a good read however
experienced readers would find it more appalling.

Sally clarified that a dream doesn’t come as a coincidence

In this book, Sally clarified that a dream doesn’t come as a coincidence; instead,
our unconscious makes its own way to our conscious through dreams. According to
her analysis, dreams are representative of imaginary fulfillment wishes that can go
way back to early childhood.

A really interesting book to read.

A really interesting book to read. I personally found it very enjoyable. One of those
books, however, where the debate and writing around the thing, and external
references, outstrip the original manuscript.

All my friends who were into books related to dreams

All my friends who were into books related to dreams and interpretations told me to
read this book. I was a bit sceptical in the start as such books tend to confuse you rather
giving a constructive way out however the way Sally has written this book, it is
very easy to understand and doesn’t force you to have a single opinion about the
dreams. It doesn’t try to be all preachy and scientific whereas giving us insights
and knowledge about the background of dreams. I am happy to get this book off my
list now.

This is maybe my favourite

This is maybe my favourite. I first read this while struggling to understand the occurrence of my dreams however took some time and tried to understand the reasons it provided. You will be amazed when you read the examples and interpretations of some dreams. Because some of them you probably had and you know it’s the reason why you saw that dream.
