I just want to say this book was amazing!!!! I especially liked when Finn and Delphi realised they were twins! I think the novel was so detailed and thrilling that I couldn’t put it down! That book is now my favorite most exciting book ever!

I miss reading The Dream Dealer. I am sad that I can not read it anymore – it was really good.
My favourite part was….all of it!
But I really liked the mystery and way that it was told.

This book was simply mind-blowing! When I was reading the book I just felt like I was inside it. I could read it all day and all night!!!!! 100000000 stars!!!

You always pick up a book thinking it’s going to be boring – but this wasn’t, you were in it, right from the beginning. It was then good all the way through, except for the end, which was FAB! It’s like a mystery book with fantasy as well. My favourite bit was the bit just before the end, when there was total havoc, which was brilliant! The ending is really cool, I liked this bit “Mother Nature knows that by living in harmony with her, that there can be eternal life.”

I just needed to know what colour the Dream Dealer’s eyes were!

This book inspires and captures people of different ages. When you read it, you forget about everything – about time and about real life. When once I opened the first page of this gripping book, I couldn’t stop reading. The whole day I couldn’t get away from ‘The Dream Dealer’. The next day I told my friends about Finn’s life story. They wanted to read it. After reading they said that Marita Phillips’ book is wonderful. One of my friend cried while reading about the boy who had never seen his mum.

I’m getting the book today and with all the comments and thoughts I WANT TO READ IT RIGHT NOW! I can’t wait to get the book.

I thought the book was very clever, it was very creative and the way it was described made me feel like I was in Finn’s position as I read it. I also could picture what Finn’s life was like from other view points and how he was very determined to find his mum if she was alive or not. I enjoyed reading The Dream Dealer from start to finish. This book has taught me that I should never give up on something that I care about.

ADORED The Dream Dealer. In fact it was sooo good I’m going to suggest it for my book group! I really liked Finn, mainly because he cared for nature and because he was just the sort of person he was – friendly, without self pity and he just gets on with things. He is one of the only boys in books that I really like! Delphi seemed really friendly. Instead of just following the crowd she stood up for what she thought is right, and I admire that.

The story line was very interesting. Especially about the earth imp and her desperation to become human; how she would knock down anything in her path to get there. I also liked that when people get something from the Dream Dealer, he in return gets something from them. I find him very clever and cunning.

To make a long story short it is an excellent book, a bit like a dream itself.

This was a truly gripping book. I started reading it and finished it the same night! The Dream Dealer is my favourite book!
