A good paranormal murder mystery/romance

A good paranormal murder mystery/romance that opens in 1989 and involves a college student who dreams the dreams and thoughts of those she is in nearby contact with, including a serial murderer. Narrator Heather Jane Hogan has a very pleasant, easygoing voice and sets a nice, even pace; readers will know when they are in a dream scene because of her slowed, floating delivery for which she is very consistent. Her range of voices is very limited in fact, almost non-existent, but she does a good job at discerning characters. I’m sure the author was trying have us “live” as if we were Sara, the protagonist, but especially later on in the story, the dream scenes are much too long and repeated over and over. That said, Dream Student: Dreams, Book 1 is well worth the listen.

There’s lots of details, a little crazy college stuff and mild sex scenes that were more like those old black/white movies that I love to watch, where you actually must use your imagination instead of having pornographic sex shoved in your face, or ears in this case. The story is also believable; true, we see and hear all kinds of fantastical stuff and there’s probably an old movie out there that is has a similar storyline but Dream Student didn’t get too far-fetched from reality. The wildest of imaginings are often believed by the easily influenced, but this story is a bit more down to earth and about dreams…something everyone has, even if we don’t always remember them.

Sara is an unwilling participant in the dreams of others so within a short time she learns to help those she can in their daily college crises, and with best friend, Beth, and boyfriend, Brian, by her side, Sara comes face-to-face with terrifying events in order to solve the murders taking place near the college. She must keep dreaming the horror to find the killer before more lives are lost….

The cover of this 11 hours 33 min audiobook is beautiful though like everything else in life these days has a sexual undertone. Fortunately as I mentioned above that content is very mild.

A fresh spin!

I remember being at university and how I always afterwards wondered how on tv can people get a degree and play the entire time?

It drove me nuts. In this books the students actually does put in the time and I loved that.
Our main protagonist is a pre-med student with a problem. She keeps having nightmares. Not any old dreams, tragic murder scenes play off infront of her night after night.

While balancing study, friends, a social life and a brand new boyfriend she needs to figure out why she is dreaming of a serial killer and if she can do something about her dreams....especially once she knows that her dreams are reflections of what happens in the real waking world.

A fun read!

The narrator did a pretty good job in making the characters come to life, each with a unique voice all their own!
