I have only read a handful of books written by author, Sidney Sheldon. I can't remember the last time I picked up a book and read it all the way through without putting it down. Before I finished page one I was hooked. I was there. I don't know how he does it but I had been transported as though I was in the room with all of the characters. Never have characters been so real to me before. I only wish the book were twice as long! More..more...please and thank you!
