Summary

Hypnotized to quit smoking after his dad is diagnosed with lung cancer, Ben Danski begins to dream about a childhood he doesn't remember. The dreams become more frequent. Vivid. Frightening.

Further hypnosis reveals events he doesn't want to believe, but as Ben decides to ignore them, his past finds him. Details trigger more than Ben bargains for, as both distant and recent memories are unblocked, and change his life forever....

Story with a surprise twist

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't listen to this story in one, in fact, I listen to it part way and thought, not so great and left it alone. Now much later, months in fact, I listened to the whole thing whilst being sick and bed ridden. What a surprise, it is a good short story and not to give it away too much, a good twist at the end.

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed it, nice surprise.

Solid buildup, rather predictable ending

The premise and build up in this story were great. The author pulls us in deep and makes us care about the character and his plight. My only gripe would be that while there was a twist ending (that you could see coming fairly early on), it left other, more important (IMO), elements of the story unresolved. The author spent a good deal of time throwing red herrings to distract us, but for me, those herrings ended up being interesting and I felt they deserved a bit more resolution.

The narrator did a good job on all characters except the main IMO. He tended to give the protagonist a whiny, childish voice even when not in a regression session. Otherwise, top notch.

Overall, a decent listen.
