recommend me #3

Kate at the The Neverending Shelf is hosting this fun weekly meme Recommend Me where you recommend a book, old or new, that you really enjoyed.

To play along, grab a favorite read and tell us about it. You can include your thoughts about the novel, its summary, your favorite memory related to the novel.

I always love Sidney Sheldon's. I read all his books since I'm 16 and still re-read his books in my leisure time. but this year, I'm moving into something new and feel that I need a break from re-reading his books like old time *LOL* All his books are quite much stand alone books. However, two of it are series that I would like to recommend.



1) The Other Side of Midnight

Beautiful Noelle Page meets dashing WWII American pilot Larry Douglas in France and falls in love. She expects him to marry her, but instead Larry abandons her. In the United States, successful Catherine Alexander meets Larry Douglas and they marry. But Noelle hasn't forgotten Larry even as she's become a successful actress. She maneuvers to have Larry hired as the private pilot of her wealthy and powerful lover Constantin Demiris so she can seek revenge on him, but instead she and Larry rekindled their passion. Desperate to be together, Larry and Noelle make deadly plans. But soon the lovers face a terrible fate determined by the jealous Demiris using Catherine as his pawn.

**This one one has been made movie in 1977. And a huge success too.

2) Memories of Midnight

Catherine lost her memory and wound up in a convent in the care of nuns. She is later taken in by shipping tycoon Constantin Demiris and given a job in his Trade Corporation office in London. Catherine is actually Catherine Douglas, a woman believed to have been murdered by her husband Larry and his mistress Noelle Page. Noelle was also the mistress of Demiris and he had set up the trial lawyers so that Larry and Noelle would be executed. Catherine's emergence causes a threat of exposure to Demiris and he hires Atanas to assassinate her.

Bottom Line:

Sidney Sheldon's books have enormous promising ending and twist. I love the suspense and the mysterious storyline that always become his ingredients in his writings. Try one, and you'll never forget Sheldon's!

  4. @ steph: I love all his works except the doomsday conspiracy. Quite bothering with the alien thingy. my 1st read of his was Bloodline and i liked it. If you have his 'the best laid plan', that will be a good start!
