Book : The Sky is Falling by Sydney Sheldon

Filed under: Books — Tags: , , — krishnafromtoronto @ 3:42 am

Well, another typical Sydney Sheldon. After losing some of his verve
(mental block?) in novels after his peak, (witness the sequel to
Other Side of Midnight and Sands of Time), Sheldon seems to be back
doing what he does best from the Best Laid Plans onwards! He
has ‘done it again’ in this thriller and is sure to delight die-hard
fans of Sheldon (I am not one).

The story is a typical ‘woman triumphs against all odds’ story and
is another in the successful formula perfected by Sheldon. This time,
a reporter is on to the planned murders of a political family and
tracks it down with a pit-bull like tenacity that is the hallmark of
any of his heroines. It is unfortunate that you start to suspect the
most unlikely characters because you are trained to, having read all
his earlier books but still the fun is all there.

If you are looking for another Sheldon in the typical mould, go
ahead and read this. You will not be disappointed.

Let’s say a 7/10, shall we?
