    1. I am so glad I stumbled upon this through some amazon recommendation engine magic.This is a book about dreams, the strongest and most well formed of which take on their own personalities and lives. Narrated by Fang, a nightmare that is all about the chase, and the gnashing teeth in the dark that you cannot escape, Sweet Dreams Are Made of Teeth is an ethereal journey of self discovery.What I loved most about this book was the fact that almost all of the dream and nightmare characters were never [...]

    2. i came to know Richard Robert as an Author thanks to his Supervillian Series, and browsing through his works i came to find this little marvelous piece of fiction, Sweet Dreams are Made of Teeth is about personal growth and definition of identity, and just like most things in life often find or define ourselves by the circumstances that surround us, that, at least for me is what Fang's story means's not a Romance, it's not an epic quest nor is about the intrincacies and politics of the Realms, i [...]

    3. I wasn't sure I would like this book at first, but it quickly grew on me. Fantasies and nightmares. Angels and demons. And the odd dreamer. This novel painted a motion picture, shadowy and vivid, that reached out and touched this reader.

    4. I generally like Richard Roberts' books. This was his first "non-children's book" that I read. It has interesting characters, an idea of the dream/nightmare world that I have never seen before, and wanting to know how the characters ended up kept me interested. Definitely don't look to it for any theology, because in addition to dreams there are lots of angels and demons in it. I would have rather just seen dreams.I admit I have very kiddish sensibilities, but this was not a "horror" novel. Ther [...]

    5. All in all, a very different and unpredictable book with a unique, fresh story and characters that don't quite fit into worn-in archetypical roles - beautiful in its broad strokes, but falls short upon closer inspection.[SPOILERS BELOW]This book was not what I expected at all - weird love triangles (if nightmares, demons, and demiurges were even capable of such things), haughty angels, and Lucy. There is no clear-cut good force vs. evil, no definite 'leading couple' to root for. The book itself [...]

    6. This review can be found on my blog: susreviews/2013/04.5 starsIn the world of dreams, there are two sides: the side where the happy dreams are made and then there is the side where the nightmares are made. Fang is a nightmare. He is the large, scary thing that's right behind you, jaws snapping at your heels, just a second away from catching you. It's not that he's mean or evil or anything, he just really likes chasing, and since he's a nightmare, he's able to. Fang's best friend is an amazing n [...]

    7. I literally just finished the novel, and my head is still spinning, this was a fantastic read. I am an avid reader of fantasy, paranormal, and sci-fi, and I have NEVER came across a novel like this. At first it was a bit difficult for me to wrap my head around because the characters and perspectives are so unique, but I quickly found myself as drawn to this story as Fang is to the Dark.It's title might be confusing, but this is a novel with great depth and exploration of fantasy, good vs. evil, [...]

    8. At first this book kind of reminded me of a Piers Anthony book, with the crazy cast of fun characters, but as I read on, the author really grew into his own. This book is not only fun, but you never know what is going to happen next. The world-building was awesome, and the characters are different from any that I had experienced before. This book is a rare gem that you really want to tell everyone about once you have finished reading it. Kept me up reading even when I knew I had to work the next [...]

    9. I find that I enjoy gems like this - unexpected and unusual settings, a hero honestly like nothing I've really ever read before, and a world that combines mythology and imagination in ways I still don't fully get my head around.Sweet Dreams is one of those books I've gone back and read a dozen times; it's a YA book, a quick read, but the themes are timeless and deep, exciting and unexpected. It's the story of nightmares and their purpose, their hopes and dreams and aspirations, taught by a hero [...]

    10. This was quite an engaging read, even though I'm not normally a big fan of the fantasy genre. It's set in a world inhabited by dreams and demons, existing on the fringes of our own reality. I found myself identifying with some of the characters, especially Fang, in spite of the exotic setting; the story really drew me in and kept me reading right to the end, and I still find myself thinking about it. It reminds me of Charles DeLint's work, in a way; it has that same sense of being set in a mytho [...]

    11. Another awesome example of why Richard Roberts is hands down my new favorite author. Sweet Dreams are Made of Teeth followed highly original and detailed characters into the dreamland where we met Angels and Demons, Demi-urges, ghosts and nightmares, following them are they scared dreamers and discovered who they really are. Absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend it, as well as checking out his additional works of fiction. Five stars hands down!!

    12. This story ended better than it began. The first half was really difficult for me to get into but the last half was better - the characters were more defined with separate personalities instead of all feeling like the same person/nightmare/creature. Overall, not terrible but also not one I'd recommend to my friends since it felt like work slogging through the first bit.

    13. Richard Roberts gives you a new take on nightmares. He gives them life and thought. I was entranced in this book and regretted having to put it down for even a second. Fang is a nightmare who slowly becomes so much more. Trust me when I say that this book will take you on a ride and make you rethink your theories on nightmares.

    14. I found this book a little different than I was expecting. While there was nothing wrong with the book, I found it not to my taste. I think I was expecting something different from reading the description and felt let down by the story. Even though it was not to my taste, give it a try it may be to yours. This book was given to me for an honest review.

    15. Sweet Dreams are Made of Teeth is a book about dreams and nightmares. The author is awesome with the details and really brings the dreams to life for the reader. Although it's not my usual genre, I did enjoy it.

    16. i Usually can find something I like about a book.is one was i guess the imagery. It is very detailed. So much so that I had nightmares. i could not get into this book.

    17. This book was a lovely unique surprise, worth reading at least once. author has a distinct voice and the scenarios that play out in this strange and whimsically horrifying book consistently delight.
