Tell me your dreams by Sidney Sheldon


My Review: 3/5

WARNING: If you haven't read this book yet and want to read it, please do not read this review. I am going to bring the suspense out. Only read this review after you have finished reading the book. 


Honestly, I don't know whether I liked this book or not. The book is divided into 3 parts: the first part explains the problem of the main character, Ashley Patterson, who is the victim of Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD). Ashley is accused of murdering 5 men but she doesn’t even know 3 of them. The case goes to the court, which becomes the book’s second part. A lawyer called David, defends Ashley. David is shown as hero here. Actually, the first 2 parts are jaw dropping. I really liked it. Then comes the third part, where the suspense is out and this is where my disappointment lies. So, it turns out that the cause of Ashley’s MPD were actually her parents. Her father was sexually abusing her since 6 years of old and her mother never liked her. She was always criticising Ashley. To protect herself from this situation, her alter ego, Toni Prescott was born. Still, her father continues it and to be able to cope with the suffering, another alter ego, Alette Peters was born. Since then, every time Ashley comes close to a guy, her alter ego Toni takes over and she kills the guy. What I don't understand is, why wasn't the father killed in the first place? I totally didn't get that.
