    “Amazing Reading”

  2. 4 out of 5

    I have never liked Sidney Sheldon before. But after reading her novels consecutively, i learned to appreciate her works at full blast. She’s an easy to understand writer. No highfalutin words, no overdescriptions, just fitted for an average reader. i also liked how she made WOMEN heroes of her novels and how she leaves her readers at awe and question: WHAT HAPPENED AFTER? that we wish there’s a part 2 of that novel.Likewise, i loved how she connected her stories. very relevant, very current, something that we can relate to. we know her stories were really happening in some parts of the globe and that’s really nerve-shaking. At the end of every work she made, i learned to love this author 🙂

    How a story is presented in the beginning, middle, & end is an essential factor that keeps the readers of into pages. Sidney Sheldon did it well on his Windmills of the Gods, & successfully placed a strong ingredient that surprises readers every now & then. The pacing is perfect. The plot is excellent. The story itself is well-researched. Windmills of the Gods is one of the greatest suspense stories I’ve had read, and Sidney Sheldon succeeded in hooking me up with such a breath-taking story, a fast-paced journey unto the world of politics & its darkest mysteries, the hidden risks behind intellect & fame, the roller coaster ride to the international secrets, sex & murder at their worst, a family at danger in every choice to take, and the survival amidst greedy interests and deceits in a game of life. There’s only a few writers who can bring it on; and Sidney Sheldon is one worth to get such prestige.

    The good, old political espionage thriller. The typical Sheldon style. A heroine, Mary Ashley, who is an ingenious personality and who is going to change the scenes around Romania with her power as the American Ambassador. Despite this book being the formulaic portrayal of a political thriller, in which none can be trusted and faith is a stupid term, it certainly gets unpredictable at times. The reason being, the projection of multiple characters as villains.Mary Ashley is supposed to bring changes to foreign policies in Romania, but there are people who do not want that to happen. And that is where the danger comes in. Rest is a convoluted piece of clandestine meetings, murders, betrayals, suspicions, love and patriotism.The characters are fine, but none have been done very boldly. The sketches does not endear one to them.All in all, a light read, good for travelling, as I did.

    This is the first Sidney Sheldon book that I’ve read and it didn’t disappoint me. I found the first part of it kind of slow-paced, but when I got latter part, I just couldn’t stop myself from flipping through the pages. Sidney definitely has a way with words. I cannot imagine an author with such amazing diction. He’s an author who doesn’t expound much on a certain topic; he conveys clear ideas to readers with help of minimal amount of words. I am not a fan of politics, let alone international politics, but I surprisingly finished this book though it’s loaded of political ideas and conspiracies. Now I know why he’s considered as one of the greatest author ever

    This is actually my favorite SS book. It wasn’t as dynamic or surprising as the other books he have written but there is something in it that draws you. This book felt so different from the other books he had written. I mean different. Like isolated LOL. Anyway teh plot is great! kinda ordinary compared to some of his works that went extreme (in a great wayh) but as gripping as the othersI thnk the fact that the pro and the man never kissed or made love increased the excitement. I was waiting for them to kiss or hold hands but they never did; it was almost…innocent and i think that made me like it 10 times more. I love the man (forgot the name, i tend not to remember the chars name after reading a book), the dark and sexy aura he has, and it was described in a magnificent way; like your watching him yourself, like you can touch him and talk to him. The girl wasnt my fave heroine but i did care about her. The story is intense, i finished it in a just a few hours.The way SS write his books are always as smooth as a silk and seemed so effortless.He writes with such simpleness that makes you think he has written the book in just a few weeks, published it then viola made millions of dollors, thats how smooth and well-woven it is.
