Product Description

Product Description

Between adjusting to life as a newlywed and trying to survive the first month of medical school, Sara Alderson has a lot on her plate. She definitely doesn’t need to start visiting other people’s dreams again. Unfortunately for her, it’s happening anyway.

Every night, she sees a different person and a different dream. But every dreamer has one thing in common: they all hate Dr. Morris, the least popular professor in the medical school, and they’re all dreaming about seeing him – or making him – dead.

Once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.

Dream Doctor is the second book of the Dream Series.

This is the second book in the series and unfortunately I have not read the first one but I definitely plan to go back and read it and really recommend reading it first. The story contains references to the first one and it would definitely make more sense although I can honestly say I enjoyed this book without reading book one.

Sara Katarina Barnes has dreams that haunt her life and also give her insight into the people around her. Her current dreams revolve around a few topics, including one of her professors at school who wants to be Dean. Luckily Sara has her new husband Brian by her side to support her and help her navigate through everything.

I really liked the concept of this book and I will definitely going back and reading the first one before finishing the rest of the series. I found it refreshing as life isn't super easy for Sara and she has to work hard at school to become a doctor while also trying to solve her dreams before anyone gets hurt.

I really can't wait to go back and read book one and then the rest! Great job!!

HASH(0xa3232c90) out of 5 stars The last thing Sara wants is her gift of penetrating the minds of others July 18 2014
By Uvi Poznansky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The story opens with what should have been a crowning moment for Sara: walking to the podium to receive her degree. “She finds it harder with each step, until her ankle gives way and she tumbles to the floor, her cap falling off her head and rolling right under the stage.” This moment endears her to us, and makes her hesitation amidst all the chores and the confusing calls of life very accessible.

The last thing Sara wants is her gift of penetrating the minds of others. “Sara is surprised, but only for an instant; then it becomes clear to her what’s going on. This has happened before; this is not her dream at all. She don’t cry, or scream; she simply closes her eyes and pleads — already knowing she will not be answered — “Please, God, not again!”

I love the fact that from one book in the series to another, Sara is undergoing a change, both in the development of her professional career and in her personal life. At the beginning of this book, she starts out thinking about her upcoming wedding to Brian. “I’m not even nervous about the wedding itself. It’s pretty much all out of my hands anyway. It wasn’t as though I could do much planning while I was finishing up my last semester…” and by the end, she has just relayed the results of her pregnancy test to Brian. “He kisses me, and holds me even tighter. His cheeks are wet — he’s crying.” These events delineate the phase in her life, and the position of the book in the Dream series.

As in the first book, Dream Student, the narration alternates between two points of view: Sara's voice (in first person) and the description of her dream sequences (in third person, and in italicized font.) These are out-of-body experiences, and we get to witness them not through Sara's voice but through the author's all-seeing eyes. James DiBenedetto presents us with a riddle for us to solve, and allows us to see his lovely Sara from outside, as well as inside her skin.

Five stars.

HASH(0xa3232ce4) out of 5 stars Every Bit as Good as the First Book Aug. 6 2013
By Fran Veal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had purchased Dream Student (Dreams, book 1) (Book 1 in DiBenedetto's Dream Series) at an online book fair and had it on my Kindle for about a month before I actually got around to reading it. I was only about a third of the way through Dream Student before I bought the other three books in the series, anxious to see what happened next in the story of Sara and her amazing talent for finding her way into other people's dreams.

I really loved the first book, largely because I identified with Sara as a college student. She could have been ME, except for her major. I wasn't sure if book 2 would stack up. I was in for a pleasant surprise! I think I liked the second story of the older, more mature Sara even better.

Dream Doctor begins with Sara's marriage to her boyfriend, Brian, just before Sara starts medical school. It isn't long before she finds herself once again, observing other people's dreams, except this time the main character is her least favorite professor, Dr. Morris. Every dreamer seems to have one object: to kill Dr. Morris. Sara has no doubt that one or more of these people has real plans to kill the despised doctor - the question is, can she figure it out in time to save him?

Dream Doctor is very well-written, delving deep into Sara's life as a medical student who is also a newlywed. DiBenedetto does an excellent job of weaving together a thrilling story without leaving out the day-to-day aspects of the main character's life. Also, unlike many series, this book stands alone, and does not necessarily have to be read after book 1, although I highly recommend you download and read all four.

HASH(0xa3232fc0) out of 5 stars Read Dream Student first April 8 2015
By MED - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Dream Doctor is the sequel to Dream Student. I always try to read books in sequence if they are set up that way and I definitely think you need to read the first one first to understand some references in this part of the story. The dream series that Sara is experiencing this time are more varied. It is more difficult to figure out "who done it" this time. Sara is experiencing dreams of various people and true to her character, she feels she must help since she has prior knowledge of events. Her husband Brian is a constant character in this book as well, but Sara seems to be less needy and more an equal partner than in the first book. This makes her more interesting. For this reason, I like the way this book is written more than the first. Just the same, I recommend books be read in the sequence.

If you like a slightly weird plot, likeable characters, and a little humor in a lite mystery, you will like this series.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest opinion.

HASH(0xa32334dc) out of 5 stars Got to love a sequel March 24 2013
By The McG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
***Don't read unless you have read the first book***

I had this opportunity to beta read Dream Doctor before publication.
This book is a continuation of Sara and Brian's life, and the dreams are back. This time though, the stakes are so much higher as Sara is facing the very real, very adult world of med-school as well as dealing with the death of someone.

Again, this takes me back to being at uni myself. My room mate was a medical student, and I could smell the formadelhyde, clinging in my nose - thanks James!

There is an interesting twist in the way Sara's dreams lead her to the conclusion, but the pacing and characters were comfortingly familiar.

A great read, and on to the next!

HASH(0xa32334f4) out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars for Dream Student by J.J. DiBenedetto Aug. 23 2015
By Jen @ booksthathook dot com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*I received a free copy from Reading Deals in exchange for my honest review.

Dream Doctor is the second book in the Dreams series by J.J. DiBenedetto. This one was a little better than the first book, because it has more conflict and action. But, it still had a huge problem of not having the character progress toward a goal.

The main issue that Sara needs to deal with in the story is the dreams about people wanting to kill Dr. Morris. Unfortunately, she gets sidetracked with so many other things such as: her new neighbor who desires her husband, her friend whose mother dies of cancer, and a girl who gets injured while hiking. It takes until 72% of the way into the book before Sara tries to figure out who is trying to kill Dr. Morris.

The good...

I liked that it was easy for people to read this book, even if they haven't read the first book. I also liked how (when she finally acts) Sara puts the pieces together to figure out who the villain is. Another good thing about Dream Student is how well-developed the characters are. I cared about what was going on with each one of them, even if it didn't contribute to the main storyline. Additionally, I think the cover is great.

The bad...

I didn't like how Sara figured out what was wrong with her teacher. She basically piggybacks on someone else's work and then takes the credit for figuring it out. I also disliked how many of the dreams were memories. I have never met anyone who dreams exactly what they have done. It wasn't believable to me. If the author had said that Sara had a dream of what they had done (more like a vision), it would have been fine. But, saying that the other person is dreaming it and Sara is merely a spectator, doesn't seem real because I doubt they would dream memories.

I could put aside those complaints. However, I can't put aside my complaint about the slow progress toward the story goal. The writing in this book is good. The plotting is not. Even if there are a lot of subplots in a book (like there is in this book), the main character should be doing something to work toward the main goal of the story. In Dream Student, the issue of Dr. Morris is mostly ignored until the end. Every now and then Sara has a dream about him, but she doesn't do anything about it. She is too wrapped up in all the other subplots.

As a whole, the book isn't terrible. I did enjoy some aspects of it. I would recommend it to readers who like books that are more about characters' relationships than about any problem that needs to be figured out. Dream Student had the potential to be a great mystery, but it ended up being more of a story about relationships and the challenges of medical school. I will not be reading any more books in this series, but I don't want to discourage anyone from reading it. As long as you know what to expect, you might enjoy it.

I give Dream Student 3.5 stars.
