King’s prose portrays Monroe as a woman still trying to find her authentic self while navigating the Hollywood facade and the Kennedy political intrigue. Her story resonates a complexity that has kept the world guessing and wondering what she could have accomplished had she not died so soon.
While Monroe’s story has it’s unanswered questions regarding both her life and death, I found Dr. Campbell’s story just as compelling. Campbell is a man trapped in his life just as his newest patient albeit for different reasons. While trying to remain professional , he falls victim to Monroe’s charms and vulnerability. Campbell provides a satisfying frame story that aids in personalizing Monroe’s situation.
A Dream Called Marilyn gives the reader a chance to be an eyewitness into Monroe’s last days through the eyes of Dr. Campbell.
Ms. King has written a fast paced, intriguing tale of a Psychologist who was hired to subdue Marilyn at all cost, including death. An enjoyable and satisfying read! Leaves the reader with questions and wondering how much is truth and how much is fiction. We have all heard the stories... An interesting and unique tale of passion, suspense and a dream that was Marilyn Monroe.

She was a sad creature- so loved by so many and yet so lonely and broken. This book of fiction takes the suspected affair with JFK, her break from the studio, a false pregancy and many of the people who moved in and out of her world. and throws them all together.
It puts a psychiatrist whose own life is in shambles into a relationship with Marilyn. Supposedly the studio has asked him to get Marilyn "straight" so that she can be reinstated and finish the film from which she has been fired.
Our intrepid psychiatrists gets personally involved in the fantasy and proceeds to make an even bigger mess of both of their lives.
There is also a secondary story going on and it could have been the more interesting of the two. We already know what the historical outcome of the story will be. Our hero is so weak and rather pathetic that it is hard to care what happens to him in the end.
Marilyn Monroe is one of those icons that we don't forget, even years after her death. The book, A Dream Called Marilyn by author, Mercedes King writes a book that gives us inspiration and pages that you don't won't to quit turning. The author, goes into the final days of Marilyn Monroe through Dr. Charles Campbell, her psychoanalyst. Ms. Monroe was struggling to find herself while being int he Hollywood scene and the Kennedy political life. The story has such a complex plot to it that the world has been kept guessing what Ms. Monroe could have become and accomplished if she hadn't died. Her life has many questions that are unanswered. Even in her death there were answers to be had. Dr. Campbell story was just as interesting. He was trapped in his life just Ms. Monroe was only for different reasons. Ms. Monroe was very charming and vulnerable and Dr. Campbell was falling for her. The author wrote a tantalizing book that gave the reader an eyewitness account into the last days of Ms. Monroe's life through Dr. Campbell's eyes.Mercedes King wrote a book about one of our never to be forgotten icons and what her life held. As the reader you wonder what a different person she couldn't have been, but that is true for all of us. If only?
I was given a complimentary copy of A DREAM CALLED MARILYN from the author, Mercedes King and Pump Up Your Book Virtual Book Tours for my view of the book.
