Summary

Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell....

If he's in the right mood, divine Angus might grant you sight of your true love in a dream. You might even fall in love with him, but he'll never love you back. He's too busy making mischief, stealing the palace of the gods from his father, turning his enemies into pigs, and so forth - until he is trapped by his own romantic games, falls for an unattainable woman and is doomed to seek her forever.

In 20th-century Scotland, Angus's troubled alter ego searches for his true family and identity. A psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, his life seems to parallel that of his mythic namesake - which begs the question, could they be one and the same?

Disappointing

I didn’t like the format at all, and it didn’t work for me like the others in the series. As a series of short stories it was ok, nothing special. And I don’t feel like I really have learnt to think of Angus in a more in depth or different way.

I think Sandy took a wrong turn.

Did I just listen to 3 unfinished plots? Would Sandy do that to his readers?
