Are You Afraid of the Dark? by Sidney Sheldon


Are You Afraid of the Dark? by Sidney Sheldon
Date Finished: November 18, 2010
Thriller, Paperback, 416 Pages, Borrowed from Library

The Story: Kelly's and Diane's husbands are both dead. Several others all around the globe are being reported missing or dead and all are connected with the world largest think tank, KIG. Kelly and Diane join forces to find the truth behind their beloved husbands' murders. But, the one who is helping them is the one that wants to cut their life short the way he ended their husbands'.

My Thought: This thriller by master of storyteller, Sidney Sheldon, pushes me to edge of my sit. Starts with a little bit sad and depressing since the main characters are mourning over their beloved husbands' deaths and keep on flashing back the sweet memories. But then, the fast fired suspense make me feel like riding a roller coaster, with the adrenaline rushing all over my body (if you got heart attack, read this at your own risk) and I just can't stop flipping the pages to get to know what is going to happen next. I loved Kelly and Diane, because they're both beauties, brave as well as very brilliant (as they manage to outwit the genius bastard!). I loved the whole part of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" though the ending twist is a bit shaky (lost a cup of coffee). Sheldon also manages to relate the story with the "climate change" issue and it's effect especially to the world's economy. All in all, it was a satisfying read!! Recommended.

Remembered trying to read a book by Sheldon during my matriculation year but it did not manage to grab my interest. Perhaps I was a little young back then to really appreciate his work. Should try it again one day!

Must be an enjoyable read Are You Afraid of the Dark by Sidney Sheldon. loved the way you wrote it. I find your review very genuine and original, this book is going in by "to read" list.

This book is being sold everywhere with a lie-- that it is written by Sheldon. The author is Tilly Bagshawe. Having said that, it is a decent read, but I was disappointed by the end. It leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth.
