R.L. Stine likens his books to "a roller coaster ride . . . fast and exciting." If that's the case, Bad Dreams is a bad ride. Seventeen-year-old Maggie's nightmarish dreams of mayhem seem to be coming true. However, the plot is predictable, the character development minimal and the dialogue uninteresting. Alyssa Bresnahan's reading is precise and slowly paced. She's best at the bored teenaged tone ("Mommm!"). Unfortunately, the popularity of these little thrillers and Recorded Books' reputation for impeccable choice and flawless recordings will make this a popular audio selection.
