that I did not, but in the end, I am glad to have read it.First, the thing that I felt hurt the book the most was that it was oddly paced The first half of the book is very slow and took me a long time to get through The problem is that as the character is bombarded with the ultimate experience of chaos, so is the reader The character feels restless The Closet of Discarded Dreams is a story

book the most was that it was oddly paced The first half of the book is very slow and took me a long time to get through The problem is that as the character is bombarded with the ultimate experience of chaos, so is the reader The character feels restless and hopeless and pointless and I couldn t help but worry that he actually was The third quarter picked up and was wonderful It was a relief for the character and reader for something to finally be happening The ending was unsatisfying to me It followed logically from everything before, and the longer I think about it, theI like it, but I wished that this was a series of novellas instead of one long story a wish that I know is not practical in the current publishing market The thing that is important about that feeling is that I can say with confidence that I will read whatever Rudy Ch Garcia writes next, in this setting or otherwise I expect him to win a PKD Award someday from a book like this Originally published at Risingshadow.Rudy Ch Garcia s The Closet of Discarded Dreams was a pleasant surprise for me, because it turned to be unlike anything I ve read recently This novel treads paths not often trodden and that s a good thing, because there are many readers who appreciate originality in their fantasy novels.The Closet of Discarded Dreams can be called an alternate world fantasy novel I found this fantasy novel to be interesting and entertaining, because Rudy Ch Garcia written Originally published at Risingshadow.Rudy Ch Garcia s The Closet of Discarded Dreams was a pleasant surprise for me, because it turned to be unlike anything I ve read recently This novel treads paths not often trodden and that s a good thing, because there are many readers who appreciate originality in their fantasy novels.The Closet of Discarded Dreams can be called an alternate world fantasy novel I found this fantasy novel to be interesting and entertaining, because Rudy Ch Garcia written something different In my opinion the closest match to this novel is probably James Walley s The Forty First Wink, because in both novels the protagonist wakes up and realizes that something s wrong and begins to explore his surroundings, but there are many differences between these novels.It s possible to say that this novel reads almost like an urban fantasy novel, but it is not urban fantasy Because there are quite a few elements in this novel that are often associated with urban fantasy, I think that fans of urban fantasy may enjoy reading it.Here s a bit of information about the story A young Chicano wakes up and notices that he s not in his bedroom and not even in his own world He soon finds out that he s in a strange and surreal place called the Closet of Discarded Dreams He s a newbie in the Closet and he has a lot to learn about the Closet The Closet is a place that has its own rules and it is inhabited by odd people He learns that the people who live in the Closet are Dreampeople who the Dreamers real people have abandoned He finds out that there is a Door in the Closet through which things arrive in the Closet, but it is not an exit He wanders around and learnsabout the Closet and its inhabitantsThis is all I ll write about the story, because I don t want to spoil anybody s reading pleasure by too many revelations and spoilers I ll only mention that exploring the Closet and its wonders with the protagonist is an entertaining reading experience.The inhabitants of the Closet are wonderfully weird and act in interesting ways Reading about the inhabitants was intriguing, becase they were quite an odd bunch of characters Almost everybody seemed to be in the Closet, including Napoleon, Einstein, Dali etc or at least their clones were there and the author wrote wel about them.It was interesting that the people who lived in the Closet couldn t age or die The protagonist noticed that he didn t have to eat or sleep, and he didn t collapse from exhaustion, although he wandered around the Closet He found out that no one can die, get injured or even get sick in the Closet, because they get healed.I also found it interesting that many Dreampeople tended to cyclically relive parts of their lives over and over again as if caught in a loop It was almost as if they d specialized in doing so The protagonist was different from these people, because he didn t act like the others and thought of himself as unique in that regard.One of the best things about this novel is that the protagonist is a Chicano man The author has taken a conscious risk by choosing to use a Chicano man as a protagonist, because there aren t many Chicano protagonists in speculative fiction Fortunately his taking a risk has paid off well It was interesting for me to read about a Chicano protagonist and I m sure that other readers will also enjoy reading about him and his doings.The author is capable of adding humour to the story, which is very nice The humour lightens the narrative in a good way and makes the story flow better There are also a few well chosen sexual references in this novel that add a bit of atmosphere to the story.The Spanish words and phrases added a nice element of fascination and strangeness to the story I have to mention that reading this novel was an educational reading experience for me, because I learned new Spanish words and phrases.It s amazing how many different elements the author has been able to add to this novel without making the story feel annoying this novel contains well known elements in a slightly different format I appreciated it that the author used plenty of imagination, because imagination is very important in this kind of fantasy novels.In my opinion Rudy Ch Garcia writes well and has a good imagination It ll be interesting to see what he writes next, because this novel was a satisfyingly told fantasy story.Rudy Ch Garcia s The Closet of Discarded Dreams may not be to everyone s liking because of its different kind of a story, but it can be recommended to readers who want to read something different and want to be entertained by what they read If you re tired of reading formulaic and traditional fantasy fiction, this novel has something new to offer for you.It s easy to like The Closet of Discarded Dreams, because it s something different and new for speculative fiction readers It s a refreshingly original and different kind of a fantasy novel full of imagination and charming quirkiness.My final words are This novel is interesting and delightfully quirky fantasy fiction It s almost like Alice in Wonderland for the modern age Closet of Discarded Dreams Rating 4 5 StarsI enjoyed reading Rudy s book and it left me with a different feeling The hero is an amnesia patient at the beginning but everyone starts that way when you fall into the closet so not as cliched as just the hero New guidelines on physics keep you from even moving You can t just walk around and the rules change depending on the dream area.An odd assortment of people and items are forgotten here in the closet They disappear into pink stuff as dreame Closet of Discarded Dreams Rating 4 5 StarsI enjoyed reading Rudy s book and it left me with a different feeling The hero is an amnesia patient at the beginning but everyone starts that way when you fall into the closet so not as cliched as just the

closet They disappear into pink stuff as dreamers reclaim items that were forgotten or are destroyed beyond the closets ability to heal them Stable describes the closets inhabitants and the inquisitive protagonist wants none of that He needs answers to his questions Why are they here How do they get back This quest gives the hero meaning.I would say the book is age appropriate for 16 to 17 years old It contains sexual references, drinking and drugs.The one downside, it almost needs a glossary of Chicano terms to be understood by a wider audience Most should be teased out by context alone.I did not see many of the twists in this book coming and love it I think this book could be a sleeper hit The conflict in the story is about the events and it is a nice change I didn t like this book, the places where he chose to spanglish Makes no sense to me, we don t even find out his real name Crazy but I didn t waste my time reading it.

A fascinating, psychedelic journey full of the unexpected It explores identity issues especially that of Mexican Americans and so muchIt s like a dream of a rabid elephant, and about as unstoppable I ve never read anything quite like it.4.5 I read a lot of weird stuff, but this is one of the weirdest things I ve read that wasn t by J.G Ballard, and I don t evoke that name by chance There are definite Ballardian elements in this strangeness, a lot of humor andthan a little philosophy Another gem from the Latinx story bundle, which has been a closet of wonders
