The Dream Chair by Giles Ward

Are some things best left undiscovered? Or is progress just a necessity and the consequences a bi-product?

Morgan Sweet is no longer sure – it’s not his fault the world so loves his Dream Chair. Like Alfred Noble belatedly realising dynamite probably wasn’t such a good idea and offering his peace prize as compensation, Morgan rues the day his father-in-law’s passing comment over the dinner table inadvertently laid the way for the world’s most influential discovery since man realised he could rub two sticks together and ignite his own farts.

But can you blame the world? With your dreams of choice at the press of a button, it really does beg the question: what’s the point in reality?

    I was thrilled, entertained and thoroughly left wanting to read more. The style was perfect and led me, the reader into a world of infinite possibilities. The sadness of the demise of the orange juice man, so beautifully reflected modern corporate greed. Morgan and his dreams, now this I can relate to, so many ideas and possibilities – where to begin, if only one had the time and space! Energetic adventure, well written, what more can I say. Thanks.
