This is a book about an insomnia plague that threatens to wipe out humanity. Sleep Over is written in a series of survivor statements in a style similar to World War Z by Max Brooks

I’ll give the author credit for the premise, and for writing several dozen segments, each with a unique voice. Some of the segments weren’t strong, and some that tried to be humorous did not hit the mark. There were some jokes (or what I felt were meant to be jokes) that were unclear or needed additional explanation.

I debated whether to give Sleep Over three or four stars. I ultimately decided on four stars based on the book’s premise and strong writing rather than focusing on the shortcomings.
