Audiobook Review: The Fangirl's Dream by Fierce Dolan, Narrated by Devra Woodward

When I started “The Fangirl’s Dream” by Fierce Dolan I didn’t have too much of an idea what I was getting into. I’ve never heard of this author before nor read her work. First, I have to say that this is a very short story. It’s a novella about 44 pages and an hour and seven minutes on audiobook. When I started the story I was highly confused and it took me a while to understand what was happening but at the end the author really delivered on many different levels.

So when the story starts Siler Dunham is a hard working woman who is too busy to have a real romantic relationship. Her only “interest” is a tv character Farraj Reza. Farraj is a sexy, action personality that fulfills all of Silers dreams. One day she meets Madame Eve who has a very unique ability to fulfill Siler’s dream and give her one night with Farraj. When the story changes Siler is stuck in an action scene with Farraj. So at first this was a little overwhelming and confusing. I had to remind to make sure I did not miss anything. Because Siler is a fan of Farraj’s show she knows all there is to know about Farraj and the scene he is stuck in. At first Farraj is not sure he should trust Siler but as the work together to safe each other’s lives and those of the villagers that are in need of rescuing, he begins to trust her and begins to open up to her. Siler finally confesses to Farraj the real reason that she is in a scene with him, but to him it’s not a scene but real life. As they confess their fantasies to each other they then fulfill each other’s fantasies.

So a couple of things. It’s not easy to get to know characters in novellas or short stories because they are limited. Keeping this in mind we do find out that Farraj had a difficult child hood. Also, even though it’s short there is very steamy fantasies and also a lot of action. Although there are many holes in the storyline and it does take a stretch of the imagination this was still a clever and unique story. I ended up really enjoying it and becoming engrossed in how the author would wrap up the ending. I recommend it for anyone that is looking for something fun and light, yet unique and very diverse. The narrator, Devra Woodward did a great job as Siler but it took some getting used to as Farraj since he apparently has a thick accent. But overall, she did a great job.
