Well, generally speaking, the response of a reader oftentimes is affected by a dream sequence in many ways. A dream sequence is a technique mostly used in storytelling to set aside a brief break from the main story. The interlude, in most cases, comes in the form of flash-forward, flashback, vision, fantasy, dream, or some other elements. Although many authors are being warned to be careful of its usage in order not to confuse their readers, in some cases, the response may be negative, while in other cases, positive; the dream sequence primary assignment is to enlighten the reader.

Fortunately, if the dream sequence is properly put to use by the author, readers would most likely grasp the logic behind the story set aside in the literary work. In other cases, when the usage is improper, the reader’s mind may possibly be tangled, and the message remains abstruse. Overall, the effect of a dream sequence, in most cases, is nothing short of enlightening, which turn makes readers exhibit signs of satisfaction while reading.

A dream sequence is a technique used in storytelling to set apart a brief rest from the main story. The interlude may consist of a flashback, flashforward, fantasy, vision, dream, or some other element. It is often used as a way to shed light on a specific character's perspective or an event. Typically, dream sequences give the reader an exclusive peek into the featured character's past.

The book's overall plot determines the main content of a dream sequence. However, most editors warn the author not to rely on the dream sequence. Too much detail may confuse the impatient reader, as they are figuring out the message of the story.
