Noelle, Larry, and his innocent wife, Catherine, are such fascinating, memorable characters that you won't want to stop reading until you find out what happens to them next. The story takes us to Paris, Hollywood, and Athens, as Noelle comes closer to tying up loose ends with the dastardly Larry, who proves to be her match when it comes to plotting evil. But don't underestimate Noelle's lover, Demeris, who will use all of his resources to get what he wants.
This is my favorite Sidney Sheldon novel. Fans who love his fast-paced, exciting stories are sure to enjoy The Other Side of Midnight.
This has glamour, sex, murder, twists and turns, sex, history...you name it.
Two women's lives are linked. They both love a rotter. One thirsts for revenge by climbing the social ladder through wartime France and then with an Onassis type figure. Joyously well done and you just can't wait to see how she'll get there. Meanwhile, nice but smart girl loves a man we want her to give up. And we see her make mistake after mistake.
And it all comes to a climax in Greece...with one hell of an ending. Fast, easy to read, back story and adjectives - all the things they tell writers not to do now - which is why Sheldon is one of the greats.
I was so anxious to read it on the strength of the praise she had lavished on it (and its somewhat beguiling title) that she feared that I would be disappointed when I actually read it. Eventually I got my hand on a second-hand copy and read it. I have to admit that I got a real surprise from the ending - which was all the more impressive because he had laid out the clues. It's just that it wasn't presented as a mystery, so there was no hint that there was going to be any sort of surprise at the end.
I read several other Sidney Sheldon books - the next one (Stranger in the Mirror) in one 12 hour session. But none of them were anything like as good as this one. After that I was on a high for a long time and found that most other books didn't live up to the high-octane intensity of this one.
One thing that I have never particularly liked about Sidney Sheldon is that there is an element of amorality about his stories. I don't mean sexual morality, I just mean that in his stories it is neither good or evil that triumphs but rather some sort of amorphous in-between state. But then again maybe that is realism.
The trouble is that this book corrupted me in another sense. Up until then I had high aspirations to be a literary author.Read more ›
This one took me a little while to get into as the story started by introducing far too many characters that wouldn’t appear again until later in the book. Having now finished the book I really don’t think this was necessary. Then the booked jumped between the two main female characters, so just as I was getting into the story of one, it would jump to the other, and by the time it reverted back to the first one I’d forgotten where it had left off. But once the story got going I could forgive all this as I just couldn’t put it down. Right till the very end there were so many twists and turns you just didn’t know what was going to happen. I can’t wait to read the sequel now. Sidney Sheldon definitely had a brilliant imagination and knew how to tell a fantastic story.

A gripping story that has you guessing right to the end. I found some sympathy with the "villain" as I could understand why she acted the way she did.Published 1 month ago by happycooker
I have read nearly all Sydney Sheldons books but this is absolute garbage, a tale of revenge, and wooden characters, reading this is like reading through the script of a 1970s tv... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mr D
