Publisher's Summary

Liv has been dealing with a lot lately. She and her family have just moved in with her mother's new boyfriend in London, and she's starting over (again) at a new school. But Liv isn't sure that explains her dreams, which have gone from odd to...well, bizarre. Lately her nighttime hours have been filled with talking stone statues, mysterious corridors, and creepy rituals conducted by four boys in a graveyard. The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys. They're classmates from her new school, and they seem to know things about her that they couldn't possibly know...unless they actually are in her dreams. Luckily Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute....

Great listen

I love Gier's sense of humor and, now that I have listened to everything by her that Audible has, I really hope they translate more of her stuff! I want more books!

The narrator has a great range of voices, plus just sounds great in general. The story seemed a little weak in a few places, but mostly explains all that away. It's a fun adventure and a great exploration into the mindset of siblings who grew up traveling around.

Too Dark For Me

I am so disappointed with the turn in this book. I was loving it up until about half way through when secrets start being revealed. Without revealing too much, just to give you an idea, the kids get mixed up in stuff similar to Ouija boards, dark magic, etc. I'm not a fan. It totally changed the mood of the book from charming, clever, and witty to uncomfortable, in my opinion. I like paranormal books, books with good vs. evil, but with so much emphasis on Satanic rituals it no longer was enjoyable for me.

loved the ruby red trilogy but this fell flat

What did you like best about Dream a Little Dream? What did you like least?

the range of characters was too limited and weakly developed.

If you’ve listened to books by Kerstin Gier before, how does this one compare?

this is weak compared to the ruby red trilogy although it begs to be compared to it.i am happy that i purchased the ruby red trilogy but i won't buy another book in this series.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Marisa Calin?

yes

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

no

Annoying narrator, poor boring story

The narrator chooses to read in a whiny voice what makes the book that is already not very good and boring impossible to listen to. Didn’t finish listening. Sorry

Cute book and great execute of awesome idea

This was a really cute book with the great execution of an awesome idea.
This is my second series with Kerstin Gier and I haven’t been disappointed.
Gier is such a talented and skilled writer. She knows how to describe, how to tease the reader, how to give information and detail in an organic way without it feeling like an info-dump. Basically, she knows what the heck she’s doing.

The characters in this book are very intriguing and all have a depth to them. The male characters were all really interesting and Liv’s family life is so complex; there was just a great feeling of not knowing what exactly was going to happen next, either at home or at school, or in Liv’s dream, for that matter.

The idea of lucid dreaming and the dream corridor, etc. was executed really well. Most of the story takes place in these dreams and Gier does a really good job of letting you know what scenes are happening in dreams and what’s happening in real life.

The twist at the end was shocking and I really didn’t see that coming. Gier did a really good job of leading us in the wrong direction and then hitting us over the head (semi-literally, haha).

I do have one complaint and it’s about the Liv. I don’t understand her ability to refuse the existence of a demon. She’s experiencing fantastical things in this dream world, and she excepts that REALLY easily. So I don’t understand why she so fervently and surely rejects the idea of a demon. If one fantastical thing exists, why can’t another? Why would she be so opposed to one, but so readily accept the other. That creates an inconsistency in Liv’s character for me.

Fun & So Imaginative

What made the experience of listening to Dream a Little Dream the most enjoyable?

I love Kerstin Gier's imagination... Without giving too much away, this story is about a group of high school age kids that get pulled into each other's dreams by them trying to bring a demon back during a bored moment on Halloween. Completely sounds like something stupid a group of bored high school kids would do as a joke... but when it turns into more then a joke the whole thing goes more sinister. There is a lot of humor, mystery and suspense. This is the first book in a series of three and you'll definitely want book two and three and they are all worth it! The narration by Marisa Calin is absolutely perfect, I loved listening to her accent in the narrating, character voices, and her wonderful acting skills and inflections just made it even more entertaining. These books would make a great set of movies!

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

I laughed out loud several times throughout the story. Liv and Mia have such fun and open personalities that they say what they think without the filter that many people seem to have, and it causes awkward and funny moments.

Best half way through book

First few chapters were rough to get through & un-necessary swearing took away from story.

Terrific!

Intriguing story with pace, humour and a cliff-hanger ending.
Really great narrator with wonderful comic timing and brilliant accents.
