A tycoon Demiris who get into this revenge and Catherine, a normal girl who is the pawn in this game of revenge till her life turns up side down.This Sheldon's book made me HATE anti-heroine/hero that I've never been before, ugh. The book is told from Catherine and Noelle's POV and I hate Noe [...]
I think I found this book via my mother. When I was in university, whenever I went home to visit, I'd return with a big bag of books my mom had bought and read.One night I grabbed this from the bookshelf, not knowing what to expect. I think I had been putting it off for a while because it had a cover from the seventies and looked like pseudo romance.Anyway, I read it in one or two sittings! I'd never read an author as breezy (and I say this is a very good way), as Sheldon. His writing is so clea [...]
This is one of my favorite books and has been for a long time - I think I have read everything by Sidney Sheldon and loved all of them!!
So I inherited a lot of books from my mom and among them were about 10 Sidney Sheldon novels. I had read a couple of his years ago and while I thought they were pretty good, I wasn't compelled to go out of my way to aquire more of them. So I went into this one with a certain hopefulness but not expecting to be blown out of the water.But I wasblown out of the water, I mean. Written in the '70s, it takes place during and shortly after WWII. But it's not "about" WWII but rather about three main cha [...]
Being somewhere in the middle of the most recent Man Booker Prize winner at the moment and finding it decidedly uncompelling, I needed an antidote stat. And what better than this sordid potboiler, rediscovered on my shelves during a recent book purge? I always expect derision when I tell people of my Sidney Sheldon love, but oddly, it never comes. At least, not to my face. Perhaps this review will break the rule? Sheldon is a marvelous writer. The lessons to be learned from reading him are long [...]
By Sidney Sheldon. Grade: ASidney Sheldon is one of the most prolific writers of all time. In the literary circles, he has been dubbed “the master of the unexpected”. From writing novels to screenplays to TV scripts, Sidney Sheldon has done it all. The Other Side of Midnight is the second novel of his career, the first being The Naked Face.The story follows a beautiful French actress whose craving for passion and vengeance takes her from the gutters of Paris to the bedroom of a powerful bi [...]
What a book! The story, the characters And the ending! Totally unexpected :D
"Era copleșită de un profund sentiment de singurătate, de tristețea de a se despărți de persoana pe care o iubea cel mai mult, dar, în același timp, era nerăbdătoare ca trenul să plece, încântată că avea să fie pentru prima oară liberă să-și trăiască viața.""Demiris insistă ca Noelle să-l însoțească pretutindeni. În afaceri, nu avea încredere în nimeni, așa că era nevoit să ia singur toate deciziile. Descoperi că îi era de ajutor să discute despre afacerile s [...]
Read when I was really, really young. Thought it was great then. Not sure how I'd feel about it now
Though Sidney Shedon's "Stranger in the Mirror" affects me more strongly than any of the other books in his magnificent canon I would introduce "The Other Side of Midnight" as a flagship example to explain why Sidney Sheldon was one of the great story-tellers of the twentieth century. There are four protagonists with diverse backgrounds, and Sheldon puts them in his crucible - what emerges is a spectacularly textured epic that lifts and plunges us through the highs and lows of life.Sheldon said [...]
This is a smashing brilliant work, with layers upon layers of fine plots and intrigue. But there is one aspect I just cannot understand. Why couldn't Larry Douglas recognise Noelle Page when he later became her main pilot as it were? Yes, he had had countless women over the years, but surely he would remember a woman depicted as incredibly beautiful with especial featuresa woman he had lived with in an hotel for quite some time before he disappeareda woman who just some years later became a glob [...]
A really intriguing book from the start -as always by Sidney Sheldon. However, this time Sheldon has negated the story in the middle to the end, and it made a disappointing point of view.Essentially, The Other Side of Midnight occurs before, during, and after World War II, but this is not a war novel. The novel deals with a love 'quadrangle'. It started with a beautiful French woman, Noelle Page. She was sold into the fashion business by her father, Mr. Jacques Page. Mr Page advises his daughter [...]
This is the first book I read of this author. It doesn't happen often when I'm in awe with an author's writing skill more than the story and characters he created in a book. Absolutely brilliant and clever writer. The summary of the story may seem simple but do not let it deceive you as it is as complex as it can get. Because the characters have more layers of depth under the surface that you will not be able to write them off simply as good and bad. The author kept me on edge the whole time and [...]
This book is fantastic! It's the first one i read by Sidney Sheldon and I just loved the way he built the story of the main characters induvidually, until they crossed and became the same. The story is super catchy and the characters are fascinating.
Heart-gripping but totally wicked. I read this book when I was in high school and loved so very much. But that time it was borrowed and now I got my own personal copy. As this is my second read of the book, I was really glad I feel the same way I felt the first time I read it. Even much better.It has got to be the most suspenseful book where you do not see the twist until at the very end. It is a brilliant twist! The storyline was utterly amazing and he had such a masterful mind. And the book is [...]
I read this book when it first came out (in the 70's) and remember it as being amazing, but I had forgotten the details. This time when I picked it up it was with a sense of anticipation, and I was not disappointed. Sheldon writes so well, compelling the reader to hurry from page to page to find out what will happen. The characters are well-rounded and exciting, not necessarily likeable but always forceful and interesting. The story could be considered commonplace--romance and murder--but instea [...]
It's a very addictive book with the combination of Dumas, Wilde and Archer. The book is basically about power and its consequences, which is just beautiful. The writing is all very dark and haunting, with elements of surprises. One would never know certain events would occur until it happened. It leaves the reader asking questions incessantly and of course, the perfect ending.
Unputdownable. I devoured this book. I found the characters fascinating, the time period fascinating and the end played perfectly into the whole idea of these people playing a big game of chess.
Two totally different woman crossed path because of the same purpose to fight for one man.Noelle Page a true born beauty, was raised as a princess because she possessed an extraordinaire beauty that nobody has ever seen. She was raised by her Parents, protected and cared by his Father who wouldn’t let anyone touch his daughter unless you can give him fortune. Catherine Alexanders A simple girl, with a simple dream. TO make her family stay together and to embark a future that could hold a tight [...]
This book was absolutely brilliant. It's the first Sidney Sheldon book I read, handed down to me by my mum. Though this probably wouldn't be something I'd choose from a pile of books initially, but because it was recommended to me I gave it a go. And the blurb did sound intriguing but it didn't do the book justice. It certainly didn't prepare me for what I got.Noelle and Catherine, the two main female characters were very different and yet very similiar too. They both love the same man, Larry Do [...]
I really do enjoy the fun exercise of reading a particular writer's entire canon in chronological order, because you can truly track the progression (or regression) as a writer and observe developmental nuances. Obviously, this is all a little over-the-top for the Sidney Sheldon bibliography (oh, if only I can get my act together for the long-awaited Thomas Hardy and John Steinbeck renditions of this project), but the guy was quite the master of his game.I believe a large inspiration for Sheldon [...]
If i have to Describe this book in two words i would say "Deliciously wicked ". To start with, The plot revolves around Larry Douglas, Noelle Page and Catherine Alexander.Catherine and Noelle are both born in 1919. Catherine, from Chicago, grows to young adulthood, somewhat naive.Noelle, from Marseille, France, grows to young adulthood somewhat naive too, but early on she falls in love with Douglas, who inadvertently twists her. He beds her and dumps her, and she never recovers. She turns into a [...]
This novel is quite enjoyable in the book 1 and book 2 of this series. I have read one of Sidney Sheldon's book before this book, Rage of Angel. I can't stop comparing similarities between those books: heroine- beautiful, intelligent women, sex& pleasure, and tragedy. In this book, there are 2 leading female characters and both of them are very sexy, beautiful and really intelligent. Somehow, the heroine are made way too much amazing that I can imagine them in real life. Over-depicted. I per [...]
After reading this novel I found myself inundated in the deepest chasms of emotional sensitivity, so much, that before I write this synoptic outline I plead forgiveness for, if by any chance, out of my overwhelming gratification I happen to pilot a fragment of the plot into the review. Reading emanates a psychological illumination in the unherded abyss of the mind which always invigorates me. More than the storyline, I am fascinated by how the novel has struck me in the deepest core of my psycho [...]
My first Sidney Sheldon and perhaps not the last. The whole story is set on 1940's set during the world war scenario in the glittering world of glamour and grandeur of theatre, fashion and business.It revolves around three characters involved in a love triangle where a new and a powerful character jumps in and has quite an impact which gives the book a perfect and unpredictable ending.A crude, memorable and a glamorous story with a beautiful parallel development of characters. At times, it seeme [...]
What a tale! After reading “The Other Side of Midnight” I am reminded of why Sidney Sheldon is called a master storyteller. This book was actually un-putdown-able, there was no part while reading that I felt there was a lull or drop in the thrill. This is one of the greatest story of love, lust, revenge and hate all rolled into one, that I have read in a long time. Sheldon weaves a tale so grand and detailed that cumulates in the one of the most unforeseen ending, which will knock you off yo [...]
Brilliant read. Completely astonishing and mind-blowing! I love all of Sidney Sheldon's book and this one's a favourite. An amazing story of beautiful and powerfully wealthy people. Loved the end and absolutely loved the part of Constantin Demeris. Absolutely engaging.This book is all about Noel. A beautiful young girl who was sexually exploited in her childhood by her father and later sold to a guy who also exploited her sexually. Finally she runs away and then meets Larry Douglas, our hero. He [...]
This interesting story of power, conceit, arrogance and betrayal is masterfully woven around WWII. It's primary weakness is lack of proper judgement for some characters and its conclusion. 7 of 10 stars
