The Stars Shine Down by Sidney Sheldon: A Book Review

I got tired of mouse clicks and clicking pages on my laptop. Instead, I badly wanted a feel for solid pages in my hands. That’s when I thought I would take a break and enjoy reading a novel, flipping through its pages for real by my favorite author, Sidney Sheldon.

I went to the nearest bookstore and felt compelled to buy three novels by him and hoped to enjoy weeks reading them which is exactly what I did. One of these books was, “The Stars Shine Down”. I do want to provide a review of this well-structured, well-plotted and well-crafted novel. Read on for the review.

The novel describes a 17-year old girl, Lara who has a hate relationship with her Dad because no matter how much she wants to impress and love him, he always passes on stinging remarks about her. After her Dad passes away, she dreams of erecting a building in a nearby spot from where she currently lived in a boarding house. Eventually she materialized her dream and that was how she got into real estate business.

She also aged and became a beautiful lady and everyone was mesmerized at the first glance. Yet she was America’s princess travelling London to New York, from Rino to Rome constructing buildings, hotels and shopping centers. She was successful and became a self-made billionaire. Of course, she had help all along. She also came across her soul mate while travelling, who happened to be a pianist. They fell in love and married each other. Yet they were from different backgrounds, one erecting high rise and the other engrossed in music.

When all her valuable assets seemed to be crashing down and she almost broke off with her husband, a surprise birthday party from her husband, friends and colleagues made it all a happy ending for her.

This is a fabulous book to encounter. I would recommend it to anybody who is interested in reading novels.

Some of Sidney Sheldon’s blockbuster novels are “The Sky is Falling, “Tell me Your Dreams”, “The Best Laid Plans”, “Morning, Noon & Night”, “Nothing Lasts Forever” and a countless other ones. Almost all have been number-one international bestsellers. His first book, “The Naked Face” was acclaimed by the New York Times as, “the best first mystery of the year” and received an Edgar Award. Most of his novels have become major feature films or TV miniseries and there are more than 300 million copies of his books in print throughout the world. Undoubtedly, Sidney Sheldon reigns as one of the most popular storytellers of all time.
