      I m a Sheldon fan His books usually make quick reading and are entertaining He is not one for deep, haunting tales but it snags me everytime the way he can spin almost any story and make me stay up reading it However, for this one, he seems to have lost quite a bit of his spinning abilities.There was the usual twist where things don t end up how you would expect I was mildly surprised with this one but the problem was, it wasn t an Ah I ve figured it out moment I was like, are you seriously exp [...]

      Wait, what 2 stars Yes I know, I know I couldn t believe it myself I mean I HEART Sydney Sheldon but this book was annoying I saw the plot twist coming, there was absolutely no action until three fourths of the book and I thought the characters were CREEPY but I didn t give up hope I went on and on, looking for the revenge, for something unexpected but I just grew sadder and tired At the end I just wanted to stare into nothingness, wait, then I have to read the book again, it had NOTHING So at t [...]

      I found the first few pages of this book so interesting that I read it through at once I thought the theme of the novel was about revenge Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned and all that But halfway towards the end, the plot got so convoluted it might as well be a soap opera in text form The heroine turned into the villain of the story and a new heroine was introduced The evil Senator Davis and President Russell who s not really evil but just a jerk of the highest order came out unscathed and [...]

      Added 4 25 15 First published in 1997.Well written Excellent plot development Written with amazing clarity, despite the large number of characters and the many shifts in time and place Easy to read A page turner The plot concerns the machinations of politicians for power and the role of the media There s even some romance, such as it is.

    7. Michael on said:

      Not Sheldon s worst, but certainly not his best There s a little too much going on here that felt irrelevant Nonetheless, a page turning read, ideal for the beach.

    8. Pooja on said:

      What I like about Sidney Sheldon books is that the female protagonist always well most of the time looks back in their life and think about how and what went wrong, that led them to this state of destruction At least, the books I ve read till now, are based on this statement Isn t that fun to see a character in complete puzzlement and to find yourself perplexed too thinking and asking the questions as them What I don t like about Sidney Sheldon books is that when the female protagonist is gettin [...]

      A wore out political assistant stops just before a decision yet is compelled to run a sad crusade in transit out He makes an arrangement with a dried up old Scot, Angus McLintock a designing educator who will do anything, anything, to abstain from instructing English to engineers to give his name a chance to remain in the race No compelling reason to crusade, sure to lose, et cetera At that point an awesome outrage overwhelms his rival, and sadly, Angus is chosen He chooses to perceive what grea [...]

      I m still having Sidney Sheldon marathon, folks and this is the third book I have read in the past three days Yep, you got that right, I read one book a day, nothing difficult with this one as Mr Sheldon s works are quite light and entertaining.How can I start with The Best Laid plans Before I picked it up this morning, I only remember that I have read it once and I thought it was awesome, but that was me 15 years ago perhaps and I m sure that I have changed a lot since then, including the littl [...]

      Sheldon is an well known international bestseller writer and in this book he just wrote like a cheap newborn writer He spend writing than 50 pages on a minor character when I was reading the last final pages,then I discovered that particular minor character has not a slightest impact on the story Then why the hell Sheldon filled the pages just for nothing to make it a fat,big book who knows Besides, I expected the main female protagonist will take her revenge Here also Sheldon has done a very s [...]

      as it usually is with Sheldon, I finished the book in one day mind blowing as usualOliver Russell kind of reminds me of Obama charming, well meaning and absolutely useless the part about the Arab king and the peace treaty is my least favorite of courseI found it stupid which is a shame cuz Sheldon doesn t do stupid.I cried when Kamel cried in the van which by the way reminds me of how infuriating the whole it s nobody s yet everybody s fault explanation Sheldon appointed to both mentioned wars I [...]

    20. Rita on said:

      Read it in a handful visits to the toilet at my parents house This is the first book by Sheldon I ve completed and probably the last The writing technique is basic and unskilled The characters are flat and uninteresting An example the omniscient narrator tells us the main character, Leslie Stewart, is very intelligent He repeats it about three times over the first pages instead of showing it via the character s actions of AT LEAST making other characters say it The ending is very predictable.

    21. Tim on said:

      I liked this story until its less than fulfilling ending that left things unresolved for me 6 of 10 stars

      What a gripping story u can see Mreldon s trademark twists and turns didnt feel boring through out the book

      A half heartened mixture of Sheldon s previous works A familiar plot intelligent, attractive woman takes revenge against the disarmingly charming and speciously sincere man, who doesn t hesitate to throw away love for ambition A guaranteed page turner I was excited, I read the whole book in one sitting However, there are a lot that are missing Compared to Sheldon s similar works, the book seems like a hurried project, rushed out to meet the publishing deadline Talking about revenge, Leslie Stewa [...]

    24. Green Singh on said:

      Boring If I have to describe this book with one word,that s the one I choose.dney Sheldon clearly wrote this when he was bored out of his mind in all the other books of his I ve read, the protogonist always accomplish what they re set out tobut in this one,he made Leslie Stewart a laughing stock in the end does one expect to give the lead role to another character in the middle of the damn story Moreover the whole book rides on the simple twist at the end no spoilers but other than that the stor [...]

      Author is Sidney Sheldon corporation, suggests owners of a name hire ghostwriters to capitalize on previous successes by the original name Formula seems to be power hungry characters of importance, fame and physical beauty threatened by affairs and murder, international research, with a surprise twist or two Lead female cleverly outwits men to success Action avalanches so fast, I forgot previous reading and whodunit Others use the same title, Terry Fallis for an honest Ottawa candidate, and poki [...]

    26. Bidushi Das on said:

      The biggest problem with this book is that it tries to handle too much at the same time There are so many sub plots that the main plot sometimes gets lost There s romance, betrayal, revenge, adultery, politics, murder mystery, investigative journalism, war, insatiable libidos and very few of them receive adequate treatment There s even substance abuse thrown in for good measure Although some of the subplots do tie in with the main plot, a majority of it is left hanging and unused The protagonist [...]

      The first Sidney Sheldon s book for me.Seems like I m going to be a fan of him after reading his other titles.It s full of drama and unexpected twist towards the end Love and revenge seems to be inseparable for Leslie Stewart, towards her former fiancee who left her days to their wedding, to wed a Senator s daughter.As Oliver Russell, her former beau, got a place into politics, and as he climbed up the political ladder to become the President of The United States, Leslie built her own empire, co [...]

      Love, jealeousy, crime and revenge in world of US politics and press market Characters of The Best Laid Plans are of flesh and blood they love, betray, get married cause of reason to make a carrier, kill to hide their secret passions Sheldon s book is similiar to Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer Those books aren t so FBI or CIA as Tom Clancy s stuff Good for reading while travelling by a train, a tram or a bus.
