A story for people who lost their dreams.
Cheongdae Times Editor in Chief Gyeong-Im Bok
Dreams reflect reality, but the least realistic thing is a dream. Sometimes things that cannot be achieved in reality comes true in dreams and what happened in a dream becomes a reality. ‘Dollargut Dream Department Store’ is a story about such a dream. Dollargut Department Store sells dreams.
People visit Dollargut Department Store to dream what they want. Dollargut Dream Department Store is located in a city that looks almost like reality. This city is a dream world where only sleeping people can enter.
So, most visitors wear pajamas and walk around barefoot or in socks. I have seen this city somewhere, but I have never seen before. I feel like a Western fantasy novel when I see the main character's name and background description.
But it feels like an ambiguous Western feeling because it is written by a Korean. The supporting characters’ s names are Korean style and the setting reflects Korean culture in part. In short, the content seems to be written by a Korean who lived abroad. But this feeling does not interfere with reading books.
There is less description of the background and It is not awkward because it is a fantasy novel. The content It reminds me that it is a city in a dream that feels like various cultures are mixed.
All characters are attractive. Each character has a distinct personality and no there are no bad characters. The main character Penny is a bit clumsy but passionate newcomer.
Mr. Dollargut who is manager of Dollargut Dream Department Store is a reliable and smart. He sometimes shows a cute side. At that time, he is like affable mister not uncomfortable manager.
I especially like Vigo Myers, one of the employees of the Dollargut Dream department store. He does everything perfectly, it looked great. And, many characters appear such as dream makers, employees of Dollargut Dream Department Store, and guests. Everyone has their own stories they are all fun.
I was disappointed when I read completely. The writer seems to have hidden the remaining stories to enjoy alone. The foreshadowing even reminded us of things left unsolved.
I wanted to hear the stories of the characters in dream world and other guests. Dollargut Dream Department Store is like a prologue of grand and wonderful story.
I can imagine how much better stories will begin after this prologue. My imagination is not good. After reading the Dollargut Dream department store, I could easily expand my imagination.
If I dream tonight, can I meet the main characters of this book? Am I a regular customer of Dollargut Dream Department Store? It is so fun to imagine and dream like this.
This imagination is not just meaningless imagination. When you imagine you are great yourself, and you dream about yourself this way. And then, you can see great yourself even in reality. I would like to recommend this book especially to adults. Adults who were too busy living that they have forgotten the small but joyful world of dreams.
