I read my first paperback copy of Sidney Sheldon’s in 2005 which was “Tell me your dreams”. I remember reading the book late into the night with a lantern because it was that intense and I couldn’t drop it. The book tells the story of a lady who is a murder suspect with multi personality disorder which was quite intriguing. Sidney has to be one of the most sensational writers ever. This present day I have read about 15 of his works. In fact, he was famous in the movie scene too before he died.
If you have read books by and love authors like James Patterson, John Grisham and co., you will definitely love Sidney. He’s the seventh best selling fiction author of all time. Amazing! What makes his books so great? The plots, the themes, the twists, the suspense. A regular story could have a background from way back in the main character’s childhood. It’s quite rare to predict correctly the ending of a Sidney Sheldon’s book. He was quoted as saying “I try to write my books so my readers can’t put them down.” Pure determination and he achieved that.
Enough with the appraisal. I think Sidney’s books should be read by everyone as they teach life lessons varying from the business world, to law, to medicine, to entrepreneurship, to entertainment and others. And upcoming writers should try and learn from him. Apart from “Tell me your dreams”, my favorite Sidney’s book is “If tomorrow comes”. Totally mindblowing book!
