“I read this book in a day. It definitely kept me interested. I liked the Characters and settings as I knew some of the locations written about. I liked how each chapter ended with a hint of where the next was going…. just overall feel good book.” – Lori Cox (Frogs, Friends & Funerals review)

“From the very opening of the book I felt like I was part of this story. My life pretty much ran parallel to Hank’s & I immediately identified with his character. And the rest of the characters became my friends (or were just like my childhood friends) & the things they did constantly took me back to my youth.” – John Tussey (Frogs, Friends & Funerals review)

“This was a great beach read for me. Typically, I do not read fiction books because, as a homeschool Mom I am always looking for ideas and information for teaching lessons/classes and I love learning new things….that’s just who I am. However, I decided that I would try this book. SO glad I did. Finished it in one weekend….glad I had sunglasses on because the last part of the book had me in tears, with huge lump in my throat. It was just full of emotion and…WOW.” – David Funderburk (Frogs, Friends & Funerals review)

“I loved this book, it’s characters, their stories and the glimpse into how lives are changed by the choices we make; a page turner. I picked it up and didn’t put it down!” – Parichute (St. Purgatory review)

“This book was excellent. A real page turner. Very insightful and it shows us for what we are….human. It is easy to relate to the characters as they discover themselves through human interaction. It was like seeing an old friend every time I opened it up.” – Peter Radin (St. Purgatory review)

“Joe Silva is an EXCELLENT writer. Every single word on the page has meaning and purpose. For this book, the reader must pay attention to every single detail because it’s all intertwined. There are several “Ah ha” moments and even a few surprise twists and turns that one might not see coming. Very thought provoking. I read this in two beach weekends….couldn’t put it down.” – Wendy F. (St. Purgatory review)

“What a uniquely written book! I felt like I was in the middle of a movie throughout the entire reading of it. When I realized I could download a soundtrack for the book I immediately did so and was blown away by the songs and how it was all tied together. I have since ordered copies for my children as there are so many great lessons interwoven throughout A Journey Through a Dream. Probably the most interesting and inspirational rock and roll story I have read. Amazing that it is based on a true story!” – Amazon review (A Journey Through A Dream)

“As a native of Rhode Island who left for 40 years (also going to California), to pursue my dream I couldn’t wait to read this book. I have also returned to Rhode Island. I have read this book twice. Both times it has made me laugh and cry. Beautifully written.
I highly recommend this book.” – Liz Notarianni (A Journey Through A Dream review)

“An amazing and inspirational story of a man chasing his dreams. No matter what obstacle or set back he encounters, he continues to follow his heart with such strength and faith. The screenplay layout of this book different, intriguing, and lures you in immediately. I would love to see this on the big screen someday! The CD that goes along with the book is equally amazing. You will not be disappointed!” – Amazon review (A Journey Through A Dream)
