Book Summary: Tell Me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon

Someone was following her. She had read about stalkers, but they belonged in a different, faraway world. And she had no idea who it could be, who would want to harm her. She was trying desperately hard not to panic, but lately her sleep had been filled with nightmares, and she had awakened each morning with a feeling of impending doom.

Thus begins Sidney Sheldon’s chilling novel, Tell Me Your Dreams. Three beautiful young women are suspected of committing a series of brutal murders. The police make an arrest that leads to one of the most bizarre murder trials of the century. Based on actual events, Sheldon’s novel races from London to Rome to Quebec City to San Francisco, with a climax that will leave the reader stunned.


Book Review: Tell Me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon

Ashley Patterson is a brainy and gorgeous “computer whiz” with a cushy job at a fast-growing start-up computer graphics company in Silicon Valley. She is lonely, shy, and lives a life that is unfulfilling to her. She is also absolutely convinced that someone is stalking her. Toni Prescott and Alette Peters are both co-workers of Ashley’s, however the similarities end there.

Toni is a saucy, British vixen with a penchant for Internet dating and dancing at discotheques. ‘La bella Italiana’ Alette is an aspiring artist who prefers quiet, dreamy weekends spent in the arms of handsome painters. Reminiscent of high school, Toni and Alette do their best to keep Ashley out of their cool clique, but find it extremely difficult after a string of murders irrevocably binds their lives together. Toni, Alette and Ashley know virtually nothing about each other until all three women are inexplicably linked into a murder investigation that will lead to one of the most bizarre trials of the century.

“It was as though her emotions had been worn out. She went from hatred to anger and, finally, to a resigned acceptance.”

Tell Me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon is a work of fiction, but is based on several actual cases. I really enjoyed this book and found it to be an interesting read. I was definitely hooked by the plot and wanted to discover what happened next. Tell Me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon was laden with such realistic details that I learned plenty of information about certain subjects that I never knew.

The best thing about Sheldon’s novels is their ability to completely immerse the reader in the ocean of the plot. You smile when the protagonist begins a love story, cry when she has a heartbreak, and laugh the most evil laugh when she takes her revenge. And, it’s not just the few main characters, but you feel attached to each sidekick that comes along too, the way you are related to all people in actual life.
