Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Its epigraph may be from Rimbaud, but the rest of this mega-soap opera is pure Sheldon (Nothing Lasts Forever): a twisty, turbo-paced yarn of international intrigue set in the "champagne wishes and caviar dreams" world of the super-rich. When ruthless billionaire Harry Stanford is found drowned off the coast of Corsica, his three legitimate children gather at Rose Hill, the Stanford estate in Boston. They are Woody, a polo-playing playboy who likes to abuse both drugs and his ex-waitress wife; Tyler, who has parlayed a first-rate legal mind into a Chicago judgeship; and Kendall, whose success as a fashion designer is marred by her dark secret and the blackmailer who knows it. The mogul's will dictates that his fortune be divided among his "issue"?including the beautiful young woman who, hearing of her father's death, flies to Boston to at last meet her half-siblings. She is Julia Stanford, the tycoon's cast-off love child, now an enterprising executive secretary in Kansas. Of course, Julia finds herself cast as an object of suspicion by the doubting Stanfords. But even as she is drawn into the web of deceit that surrounds the family fortune, the troubled lives of the other heirs and, it turns out, Harry Stanford's death, she finds, in typical Sheldon fashion, enduring romance. This isn't Sheldon's finest. The narrative is a bit choppy and the characters less than lustrous. But his plot hooks remain sharp and it's the rare fan who's not going to be ensnared once again by this perennially bestselling author. Major ad/promo; Literary Guild main selection.

From Booklist

Prolific storyteller Sheldon is at it again in his latest melodrama. Multibillionaire Harry Stanford leads a double life; to the public, he appears charming and philanthropic, but to those who know him well, he is conniving and utterly heartless. No one knows that better than his three grown children. In spite of their mutual abhorrence for their father, the siblings couldn't find solace in each other because Stanford's cruelty kept them apart while they were growing up. It is not surprising, then, that they are filled with glee when they learn of their father's fatal fall from his yacht during a storm. The reading of the will promises to be a crowning moment for these children, but it is apparent that one of them is up to no good. Then their half-sister, Stanford's long-lost fourth child, shows up--but can she be trusted? Fans of Sheldon's previous novels will appreciate his usual quick pace and plot twists, but generally the writing, particularly the dialogue, is stale and forced. Nevertheless, you better stock up.

Sidney Sheldon, the best author in the world, will not disappoint any of his readers with this book. Morning, Noon, and Night is another intriguing, fast-paced thriller. There are innumerable plot twists, and the end is no less shocking. As with most of Sheldon's books, every chapter ended with a cliffhanger, keeping the reader interested in what the next chapter will bring.
This book revolves around a very wealthy and influential family known as the Stanfords. When the father dies, his children, the three heirs to the fortune, are shocked to find that they may have and illegitimate sister with whom they must share their wealth. This family carries out all of the major components of a great action novel: murder, revenge, greed, blackmail, and a splash of romance.
Although shorter than the average Sidney Sheldon novel, Morning Noon and Night has no less an impact. The short nature of the book actually gives it a sense of urgency. A combination of these elements kept me constantly reading. I finished this book in a little more than four hours.
Morning, Noon, and Night is a masterpiece, even for an author as brilliant as sheldon. No Sheldon fan will be disappointed with this work.

The plot lacks integrity. There are so many errors that made me wander if the book had been edited at all! Also, I believe that the author should've spent an extra 50-100 pages to better develop characters and settings. Nevertheless, I did enjoy reading the book with its many twists & turns. Mr. Sheldon seems to be a very talanted story teller who just needs a better editor. This was my first Sidney Sheldon book, and it would have been the last except that based on the good reviews that I've read here on Amazon , I'm willing to give his "Master of the Game" or "Rage of Angles" a try.

I had the opportunity to see this work performed by Spalding Gray at UCLA and I must say that some of the grit and edge in Gray's earlier monologues was no longer present.
However, I am always amazed at Gray's ability to tell simple stories and I remain in awe at his facile use of language and description.
A true artist evolves over time, so even if I don't enjoy the kinder, gentler Spalding as much, I must still respect him for for what he is--one of the greatest monologue-ists out there...

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Judith E. Pavluvcik on September 28, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Morning, Noon and Night is another spellbinding thriller from Sheldon. The ending is explosive, with intriguing twists, turns, and subplots along the way. As with all of Sheldon's books, I have to finish them in one day, as I cannot bear to NOT know what the next chapter will bring!
The ending is a shocker, as it is with all of Sheldon's books, with all of the character's "secrets" unraveling and exposed. Sheldon is great at keeping the reader cleverly baited until the very end. Sheldon sort of deviates from his typical strong main heroine character type on this tale and casts his light instead on four heirs to their father's massive fortune, with one of the heirs being illegitimate. Murder, mayhem, revenge, greed, blackmail, and hate all cast their hooks in this one, with some romance thrown in. As usual, the reader gets immediately drawn into the mystery and gets completely knocked off course just when you think you have figured out "who did it"! The action is non-stop!
This book will not disappoint any Sheldon fans and I found it to be one of his best.

I stumbled upon a discount copy of Spalding Gray's Morning, Noon and Night and was morbidly compelled to read it. Basically, he recounts a day in his life when his youngest son was still an infant.
Other of his works are better written and with sharper wit and insight, and to plod through this one - to get it - you have to hear Spalding tell it in your head, see his expressions and mannerisms.
This memoir is something of a reflection on parenthood, and, well, everything, in true Spalding fashion. The book is full of sentiments that everyone confronting parenthood can relate to. I found myself angry at him for saying some of it though (OK, so I'm not finished with my anger just yet). Toward the end he writes:
"Here it is only ten-fifteen in the evening and I'm wasted, and I didn't even go to work. I don't know how people do it. I don't know how people raise families and work at the same time. What's more, why would they want to do it? With only one life to live, why bring more life into the world to be responsible for? It's absurd. It's ridiculous, I think. Why complicate your life with more life that you are ultimately responsible for? I love my children, but they could only be accidents born out of a kind of blind passion. I could never have had a child if I had to think about it."
Although he didn't go to work, he didn't do much parenting either. His girlfriend, working from a home office, also cooked, managed the household renovations, tended to the baby. He was selfish and spoiled - yoga, bike-ride, drinking.
But in the light of his death this work also sketches a portrait of a very sad, confused, scared - desperately scared - childish man. (Lots of inky water imagery too.) The humour and the wonder had already started leaving him.
