Publisher's Summary

Let your imagination run wild with stories of danger and romance.
Wouldn't it be fun to experience firsthand the carefree life of a vagabond and a hunter, do battle with a dragon, find romance at the end of the world? Wouldn't it be even better to board a tram going to a land where fairy tales come to life? It definitely would! But as our characters themselves discover, you, too, will learn that imagination is a double-edged sword, for living a dream is not the same as a dream come true.
Two Stories About Dreams brings two wildly imaginative stories together into one audiobook. "The Hunter and the Dame" tells the story of a young and carefree hunter who entered the gates of the Sun City thinking only of decent lodging for the night. Little did he know that he was destined to slay a dragon and fall in love with a beautiful noblewoman. But was the dragon real, and was the beautiful woman all that she seemed?
"Fairy Trap" takes you on a journey with a traveler who falls asleep on a night tram and becomes the victim of three enchantresses in a match of their skills of seduction. Who was to win the contest, and was there to be a winner? The traveler wakens only to find that the dreams linger on.
For your listening enjoyment, at the end of the audiobook you will find the soundtracks - written by the author - to both of these enchanting romantic mysteries. So sit back, relax, and let your imagination run wild with Two Stories About Dreams.

No particular character, but I enjoyed the narrator's voice and presentation style

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

These are fairytales for grownups, with a touch of melancholy and romantic irony. The narrator's voice and background music are very soothing. Pleasant listening for a cold winter evening.

An amazing fusion of mesmerising stories and beautiful music.

'Two Stories about Dreams' is an amazing fusion of mesmerising stories and beautiful music throughout. The reading brings an air of complete tranquility along with the feeling of a sincere harmony. Both stories are beautifully written and frequent sound tracks help to keep the intrigue and encourage one to listen more and more. Some ambiguity in the second story gives an opportunity to use your own imagination and 'complete' the story yourself. This feature turns the listener into a participant and brakes the boundary between reality and the surreal. Also, this audiobook is filled with something special that is missed in everyday life... perhaps some kind of magic or well forgotten ability to believe in fairytales...

Fairy tales for grow-ups

What did you like most about Two Stories About Dreams?

I liked the rhythm: the way in which the Ainny Klover knows how to breeze through the narrative without insisting on the obvious. The pace and the dialogue is swift, and this keeps you immersed. We linger on descriptions of spaces and characters, of moods and atmospheres but we skip right through weeks or months of narrative when the details cease to be important. The shift between the two is almost unnoticeable. This keep the ethereal character of the story intact. After all, it is fantasy. At the end of both tales, there's a nice twist which either reminds you to drop back to reality, or to question it entirely and revert to fantasy. There is a very thin line between the two worlds and the author traverses it very gracefully..

What other book might you compare Two Stories About Dreams to, and why?

For some reason it reminded me of Maple Story, I'm not sure why.

Have you listened to any of Chris Sharpes’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't I'm afraid. But this performance is quite good. Like I said, I was immersed throughout the entire time. The music is cheery and light throughout the narration and makes a good compliment to the story.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me neither laugh nor cry. The stories are a bit naive, for my taste, but for those eager to enjoy a light fantasy, it is a good choice. You have your fair maidens, you enchanting fairies, you dragons, kings, and valiant youths, who ultimately might turn into something more palpable, but there is no drama or action to speak of. So it may not be the proper choice for those seeking adventure-packed fantasy.

Any additional comments?

Nice piece of narrative. Nice music, Nice performance.
