I'd say that this is sheldon's best book. Among all of his books, this was the one that could drop my jaw down..haaa. I remembered reading this book during my grammar class, since i could not put it down even for a single second.In the end i was kicked out of the class because unconsciously i was gasping very loudly. Sheldon really put the story in a stunning and excellent way. The plot, starting from the beginning,the climax, till the end was really well written. You would never have guessed th ...more

Svakom prevodiocu je zadovoljstvo i čast da dobije priliku da prevodi autora koga voli i čije je sve knjige pročitao... :) Prošlo je 15 godina od prvog objavljivanja ovog prevoda... I knjiga je doživela da je objavi i treći izdavač... Prvo izdanje bilo je Narodne knjige, drugo Alnarija, a najnovije, ovogodišnje Vulkana... a verovatno će ove godine osvanuti i prvo crnogorsko izdanje... :) ali u pitanju je u svim slučajevima isti prevod... :)

This is another masterpiece of Sheldon. This book is full of psychological brain game. Sheldon described the alters with very good tricky ideas. I should use my imagination as good as my logic mind to find out what the issues really were. I still couldn't find another fiction book which tells Multiple Personality Disorder as clear as Sheldon's "Tell Me Your Dreams". It even helped to understand MPD when I took psychology in university! ;p

I own this book for myself, Indonesian version, and had re

First off, I really don't know how to start, I didn't write a review right away 'cause I was speechless. This is another book you simply cannot put down (even for just a little bit). Anyway, I'll start with the usual. :> Tell Me Your Dreams is a 1998 psychological thriller by the well-known American author, Sidney Sheldon.

The mystery in this novel lies within a woman named Ashley Patterson and her past. It’s better to say less about the story. I might spoil it too much and you wouldn't like i
I was quite familiar with Sidney Sheldon's novels since I was in the junior high school. By familiar, I mean I've been knowing his famous name with dozens of bestseller book yet didn't have any interest to even try to read some of his books. Not until my husband eagerly introduced it to me and showed me how he'd been impressed by the Sheldon's novels.

So at first, I tried to please him by reading one of the Sheldon's novel he had recommended me, "Tell Me Your Dream". This eventually marks the fi

I have to confess that I'm really not a fan of Sidney Sheldon's works. The thing he writes isn't just my cup of tea. But I can honestly say that I really like Tell Me Your Dreams. That's because there's a touch of psychology in here.

Psychology's holy grail plus murder equals a masterpiece! I can say that Sidney Sheldon is a good writer because of this book.

I remember being amazed of how Sidney Sheldon narrated this novel. Where everything at first is confusing and gradually it all becomes clear
This is what happens when you have a brilliant idea but you’re simply a shitty writer. There was no suspense, no plot twist and I really wanted the story to end quickly so I could read my other “precious” books. Second part felt like an alter of John’s Grisham A time to kill… or The firm…..or his other not so cool law-based books. Lately I’ve seen this Korean drama based on lawyers and prosecutors entitled I hear your voice. And the way their attorneys defended the supposed victims was goose-bum ...more
This story is about the women, Ashley Patterson, who suffer the multiple personalities disorder. She have a two seperated different personalities, Toni Prescott who is a very aggrasive girl and Alette Peters who is a shy and kind girl. Both of them was created when Ashley was raped by her father, Dr. Steven Patterson, who is famous doctor in the world.

This story is divided in three part. First part is related to the story of murder by Toni and then, in the second part, author narrated that how

Ashley Patterson is a brainy and gorgeous "computer whiz" with a cushy job at a fast-growing start-up computer graphics company in Silicon Valley. She is lonely, shy, and lives a life that is unfulfilling to her. She is also absolutely convinced that someone is stalking her. Toni Prescott and Alette Peters are both co-workers of Ashley's, however the similarities end there.

Toni is a saucy, British vixen with a penchant for Internet dating and dancing at discotheques. 'La bella Italiana' Alette

I picked up this book cuz I am a BIG HUGE SUPER fan of Sidney Sheldon. If you want a book you can't put down, his is the best shelf in the library. So, obviously, I was expecting nothing less than perfect from the book.
And, this novel matched, no, went beyond all the pre-set standards! The story is about a girl with a multiple personality disorder..And she's completely unaware of it. The book goes through three stages: One, the girl, and her multiple conflicting personas, get involved in a horri

Primer libro que leo de este señor y me gustó mucho. Al principio era un estilo el psicoanalista pero después cambia de rumbo y me sorprendió porque pude conocer más sobre el tema judicial; planeo leer otras obras suyas.

Romance wise, I would never recommend Sheldons' book. But when it comes to mystery and thriller, there is no doubt S.S. could make you scream to the the nth level.

A fantastic page turner...
The best Sidney Sheldon novel by far, and I have read quite a few in my days, when life was all about sneaking novels into the dorms and reading them under blanket covers. A feat feasible through generosity of friends who were days-scholars and made them available for reading

I just finished reading the Book 1. Amazing Climax! A++
Everything was un-expected.

The best thing about Sheldon is that - He never fluffs (unlike twilight). Every page contains at least 1 major incident. I was actually unable to keep the book down.
Kaycee Sapinoso
Tell Me Your Dreams is a very interesting, engaging, nail-biting and heart-pounding read based on the concept of Multiple Personality Disorder or Split Personality. Being a nurse, this book grabbed my attention immediately. And I was hooked from page one up to the last. I won't go into details because I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it yet and besides this book needs to be read. If you are Sidney Sheldon fan or Mystery/Suspense lover, you would really have a great time read ...more

This was such a great book! I couldn't put it down! It was full of twists that just made me gasp.
The characters were great and had depth. I totally believed the whole story. I believed the characters. The writing stil though simple, was really capturing.
But: there are a few things about the plot I did not like.
1. The romance between Gilbert and Ashley wasn't actually shown, even though it was clearly pointed out in some places that the two had feelings for each
i've read this book when i was a freshman in highschool. all my peers talk about this like it's the best book ever. and back then, i though it was too. but after a few years, i can't help but frown all throughout re-reading this book.


the circumstances that was chosen by the author to set and deliver the "twists" of the story was HORRIBLE. really? a character who only meets sexual abusers??? are you serious? THE PLOT WAS SO FORCED. it almost sounds juvenile. and the development

I have read many of Sheldon's books, but this has to be one of his best. Sure, it's not literature, and sometimes I laughed out loud at the pure schlock factor. But it was so fun to read a novel that I couldn't put down.
wow amazing
the end was truly unexpected !!!
But i wanted the villain to die :( :(

This was a really cool concept.

Except.. incest (hence, minus a star).
I just want to make it clear that I LOVE Sidney Sheldon's books. I was slightly disappointed with this particular one though. All the books I have read of his are fast paced and give you an adrenaline rush. You want to put your life on hold and finish up with the book. Tell Me Your Dreams did not give me that feeling though.

At some times, it was intriguing and engaging but the death scenes were abrupt and I thought the characters weren't very detailed. Ashley Patterson's two alter egos weren't
"Tell me Your Dreams" by Sidney Sheldon was another fun read. I have a friend that has suggested that I ought to read some lighter material for a while. She gave me a stack of books from authors like Sidney Sheldon and Clive Cussler. So far, they have been improbable in plot development. I find that I can hardly endear myself to any of the main characters, because they are barely even one dimensional. And so what...I've enjoyed reading them.

Tell Me Your Dreams is a first thriller novel for me. Tell Me Your Dreams was written by sideny sheldon in the year of 1998.

lets begin the review……

Tell Me Your Dreams- This title attracted me to read this book. And its thriller story too. So i just got into. I would found out Anniyan Movie is copied if i read this novel before 2000(which is not possible 90%). Yup, I.

This book’s Core is MPD. I really got much interested upto 90 pages. after that slowly the slower part becomes out. Particularly th

This psychological thriller kept me poised on the edge of my seat, turning the pages frantically, while I grappled to solve the mystery that lies at its core. I loved Sheldon’s fast-paced plot and racy writing style in this novel, which, based on real cases, really hooked me in from the first page. My favourite character has to be David – the young attorney who finds himself somewhat reluctantly responsible for representing the defendant in what becomes one of the most bizarre trials of the cent ...more
