Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Jeremy Bates comes the second book in the all-new WORLD'S SCARIEST LEGENDS series.

In 1954, at the start of the Cold War, the Soviet military offered four political prisoners their freedom if they participated in an experiment requiring them to remain awake for fourteen days while under the influence of a powerful stimulant gas. The prisoners ultimately reverted to murder, self-mutilation, and madness. None survived.

In 2018, Dr. Roy Wallis, an esteemed psychology professor at UC Berkeley, is attempting to recreate the same experiment during the summer break in a soon-to-be demolished building on campus. He and two student assistants share an eight-hour rotational schedule to observe their young Australian test subjects around the clock.

What begins innocently enough, however, morphs into a nightmare beyond description that no one could have imagined--with, perhaps, the exception of Dr. Roy Wallis himself.

   Not sure.
It was a little weird, said Blair. The story itself went in a peculiar direction, he said. The end was anticlimatic.

   Just what I was looking for!
We give this book away as a part of one of our Care Packages. It's the perfect size for our packages, great book reviews also help us keep our readers and clients happy, Ms. O'Neill said. I almost kept this one for myself, Tunick said.

   Very good read!
I highly recommend this book to anyone. As a scientist I understand the desperate need for new discoveries, so I related with the protagonist at first. He manages to change that opinion in a hurry. It was a great ending to a great show, Gillian.

   A twisted look at sleep
We've probably all read or heard about sleep experiments in one form or another. This book lets us meet and get to know all the characters very well, but doesn't overburden us with needless details. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot to keep you interested, but the ending was a surprise.

   Well!
Note that I've gotten you to read this glowing review, I can tell you that it was actually quite poorly written. Hey, if you would like to get this book for free, I will send it to you! Don't complain if you can't stand it either.

   Nope
Not my kind of story at all, I thought it was going to be similar to Russian sleep experiment, no.... there was a few parts that were like, here it comes, then... nothing, so no it was not my cup of tea, not scary at all.

   Inappropriate content for product description age group.
Inappropriate for children ages 3 to 17 years. According to the product description, "Talking about sexual toys is not appropriate for a 13-14 year old." The Harrisons’ lawyer Paul LiCalsi said: “The Harrisons are completely unacceptable. No stars, no producer, no director, no writer.

   not good
One-dimensional cornballs and some of them kind of border on racism, Sosa said. Sometimes authors get lost in the world of characters and this book is a great example of that. It's a wonder he didn't make 20 references to his protagonists' beard alone, how handsome he is and his grooming habits. All the book's readers have at least one opportunity to opine on how good looking, well dressed and sweet smelling he is. The whole thing is just dumb, Ms. Kennedy said. The book is rated 5 stars based on the five star reviews. Because it's a public utility, the city must pay for the privilege.

   An amazing read! Loved it!
I recommend this book to anyone. I'm not a big reader, but I wanted to change that. When I came across The Sleep Experiment, which had received rave reviews, I went for it. For someone who would fall asleep reading any kind of book, it was almost a no-brainer. I read so many chapters and keep reading well into the night, wanting to find out what was going on. It took until late Thursday to finish the book, which took less than a week to do. I highly recommend this book, and even more for people like myself who just want to get into any type of reading but don't know where to start. Sir Richard was a passionate advocate for the English language and culture.

   Good. But could be better.
You have to read 160 or so pages in order to get to grips with the story line, before things start moving. By then, your almost done with the book. its hard to get through the first 34th of nothingness.
