The Al-Ex Project (Alternative Existence) by C.M. Donaldson

the al ex projectAccording to Merriam-Webster the word dream means 1.) a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during sleep, 2.) an idea or vision that is created in your imagination and that is not real, 3.) something that you have wanted very much to do, be, or have for a long time.  So does that mean that our dreams are fantasy?  What if you had a way to find out?

Alex is a brilliant scientist with a brilliant mind full of curiosity.  When the opportunity presented itself to work with The Scientist George, Alex jumped at the chance.  Along came Kay-Johanna, the woman which would become Alex’s wife and life was now just grand.  The project that Alex was working on with The Scientist hit home because Alex had been having bad dream or night terrors since he was a small child after the death of his parents and then again later in life so to see dream analysis was totally fascinating to them both.  But how would they do it and would it work?  And if it worked what would they do with the information they obtained from the research?  Would this be ground-breaking or detrimental to the test subjects life?  Only time would tell.

The Al-Ex Project is sci-fi fantasy but who knows what the future holds, it could very well become reality.  It is a very interesting book with the cast of characters that are interwoven in the story because you have characters from the dreams involved in the story and some of them play a reoccurring role in the lives of the characters.  CM Donaldson writes a very captivating story that doesn’t even feel like sci-fi.  This is my first encounter with Donaldson but it is NOT my last.
