    Story

    For as long as she could remember, Sarah has had a frightening nightmare. In it, she inexplicably kills her mother. After this nightmare she feels compelled to steal something. Not just anything, but some particular item which seems significant. Yet over the years she couldn’t figure out the relevance of any of these stolen items. No one knows of Sarah’s problem and she has no solution, despite reading dozens of psychology books hoping to find the answer. Then Aunt Kat, her mother’s sister whom Sarah has never met comes to visit which begins a frustrating weekend.

    Story

    This one grabbed me from the first sentence, “Does a person know when they are going crazy?” Sarah thinks that because she keeps having nightmares about killing her mother but her nightmares have elements of Alice in Wonderland to them, every time she has these nightmares she shoplifts something the next day and now she is also sleepwalking. The dreams themselves were interesting to me of how your subconscious uses something familiar like the Alice in Wonderland story to try to help you deal with things you’d rather forget.

    I think I may have read this book years ago, but I still enjoyed this story very much, even though I did figure out one thing the actual reveal was more than I was expecting it to be. This is also a story of sisters and family and friendship since Sarah’s friend Jessie tries to help her find out the root of her nightmares. I really enjoyed this book.

    Audio production: Xe Sands narrated this with perfect inflection in all the voices I never wondered who was talking; she made each character unique and true to their personality. I was impressed by the narration as it enhanced this story very much. I will definitely be listening to more by Xe Sands!

    I highly recommend this book and give the audiobook a try you won’t be disappointed!

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    Story

    Because everyone knows this story whether from reading it or seeing one of the 100's of movies based on this book I will just be reviewing the audiobook version I listened to narrated by, Tim Curry. I must admit to being a huge Tim Curry fan I will watch anything if he has a role in it so when I found this audiobook at audible I had to get it. I was not disappointed!

    Tim Curry’s narration is absolute perfection ‘nuff said!
