Tell Me Your Dreams: was written by Sidney Sheldon, which deals with Psychological disorder. The book was published in the year 1999.
Computer whiz Ashley Patterson is convinced she is being stalked. Coworker Toni Prescott has a penchant for Internet dating and little time for anyone else. And Alette Peters prefers quiet weekends in the arms of a beefcake artist. They know virtually nothing about each other – until the three women are linked by a murder investigation that will lead to one of the most bizarre trials of the century.
I’m a huge fan of Sidney Sheldon. He is the master of story teller when it comes to writing Suspense. He is the one author where. I don’t read the synopsis on back cover before buying the book. I always loved the titles of Sidney’s book; the titles have always justified his story. I was intrigued with this title “Tell Me Your Dreams” I could not guess what the story might be about and that’s one of the qualities I like about Sidney Sheldon. You can never guess!
“Tell me your dreams” was my second or third book of Sidney Sheldon. The first book I read of his was “The Stranger in the mirror” and I was highly impressed with his fast paced story narration. But his “Tell me your dreams” is what made me a fan of him. Now coming to the story of “Tell me your dreams” –
The story has 3 characters who play a pivotal role in the book: Ashley Peterson, Toni Prescott and Alette Peters. Ashley Peterson works for a computer company. She is Single, Beautiful looking and thinks she is being stalked. Her two colleagues are Toni and Alette. Toni, a British woman of mid twenties had a strained relationship with her mother. She is fierce, bold and rash.
Alette is a quiet, shy romantic gal. She is an artist but is not confident in herself. Murders are happening in cities like Chicago, San Francisco and Quebec. Men are getting butchered and every evidence is being pointed at Ashley. Ashley though has no recollection of the incidence despite waking up next to a corpse!
Is Ashley lying about having no idea about the murders or is she being honest? Is there something else which is not meeting the eyes is the crux of the story.
Sidney Sheldon hardly disappointed his readers. This book is one of his best out there. The book is bone chilling at times – like when you get to know about Toni and Alette or when you find out why Toni and Alette are like that. The atmosphere is eerie. The tension and suspense is palpable. Sex, abuse, betrayal, power, selfishness is used in a right proportion by the author. What can one complain about Sidney Sheldon? He is a master when it comes to writing books about ulterior motives. I actually enjoyed how the author has portrayed the psychological disorder.
The cherry on the top moment for me was the climax. The ending makes the book terrifying. The author does not write will justice will be served or not. He leaves it has an open statement. you can make the ending as you want.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book from starting to ending. Nowhere I lost the focus. The book is fast paced and well edited out. A definite page turner. I would definitely recommend my friends to read this. I rate this book 4.5 star.
