The 3 stars are because I cannot bring myself to rate lower a book from Sidney Sheldon. I suppose one cannot always be on top of things but I do not really recommend this book if you are a fan.
Are you afraid of the dark is one of Sidney's best "trashy" novels to date and I really enjoyed it.
You have two sparkling heroines Diane Stevens and Kelly Harris both married to scientists who are killed in mysterious circumstances and who find themselves running from a vicious hit man with a penchant for hurting people before he kills them.
Using their brains to outwit a mad billionaire with global domination on his mind, the girls find themselves struggling to stay alive as they flee bullets, traitors, and sadistic hit men with the odds totally stacked against them until finally they make the fateful decision to stand their ground and fight back in order to reclaim their lives.
You can't call this book a classic in any sense of the word, its pure escapism, pure trash and pure fun.
I loved it, there are days that you need a read where you don't have to put your brain cells into overdrive and this book is one of those reads.
I can't give it more than three stars despite enjoying it so much simply because it is so trashy, but three out of five is not bad for a book that has to really come under the genre of great "brain rot" rather than an intellectual read of merit!
A fast paced gritty under rated novel. Would recommend.
Sheldon specializes in breezy melodramas featuring beautiful, strong, and infinitely resourceful young women; in this story, we get two of them - naive artist Diane and cynical supermodel, Kelly. The ladies find themselves in mortal peril countless times, and they come out of each sticky situation by using their brains, pluck, and good-old Sidney Sheldon girl-power.
If you like Sheldon's lightweight but often exciting brand of chick-flick-type novels, you will enjoy "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" It's an entertaining, quick read with spunky heroines and glamorous locations.
