    "Lessons on medieval torture"

    If you ever wanted to know how they tortured people in medieval times you'll enjoy this book. The main character has survived several serial kidnappers and seems to be a magnet for them. She's also a self-proclaimed sociopath.

    The summary gives a good description of what this book is about. Aislinn is recruited to help catch a serial killer that uses medieval torture. If the author did their research then you'll learn all about medieval torture devices.

    The cast of characters are quirky and well-developed. The book is pretty fast paced. There is violence but it doesn't go into real gory details. It's also hard to believe that you might come to like a sociopath.

    The other cast of characters all have their own quirkiness and for the most part are as likeable and interesting as the main character, with an exception or two.

    The narrator did a terrific job.

    "Prepare to suspend your disbelief"

    Christy Lynn's performance is god awful. I listen to audio books almost everyday. I listen to cheap ones and best sellers. I've heard a wide range in quality and she reached a new low. The voices she chose for the male characters were horrible. I know women don't always do the most convincing male voices but hers were just plain irritating. The main character was annoying as well. I really tried to like it and wanted to finish the story.
    If you're really considering this book, consider this minor spoiler. The story involves about thirty deaths from crazy torture like impaling and it doesn't make national news. They literally say to make national news, murders have to be more shocking. So, yeah, prepare to suspend your disbelief for this one.

    "Worst Narration Ever"

    the story was well written however it was overshadowed by the narrator . She made the men voices seem like shrill cats, the word at the end of ever sentence was held for about 3 seconds. bless her heart, never again will i listen to a book narrated by Miss Christy Lynn

    "Painful audiobook"

    The story was okay, but seemed to be written for younger readers. The narration was beyond painful. Her verbal tics got on my nerves quickly and I couldn't shake them. One character's voice seemed to be modeled after William Shatner and the other was bad in other ways.

    "Interesting Premise. Horribly bad narrator."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes, the story was interesting. It's part of a series. I feel like there's room for character growth.


    Would you recommend Tortured Dreams to your friends? Why or why not?

    yes, the story was interesting. It's part of a series. I feel like there's room for character growth.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A replacement for the narrator who painfully stretched out almost all the words and chose horrible accents for just about every character involved.


    Was Tortured Dreams worth the listening time?

    it was painful. the narrator's voice and mannerisms were very annoying and distracting but the story had merit.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there's a new narrator for the next book in this series.

    "Not Horror"

    This was billed as horror but it's really just a y/a mystery with old world torture devices. Disappointing.

    I have become an avid listener to James Patterson's Alex Cross series. I can't get enough of them!

    "Who knew"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. I can't wait to start it over again! At first I wasn't sure about the narrator but she made it work and did a great job yelling the story.
