      Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Sidney SheldonIn four cities across the world, four people die violently and mysteriously. The dead share a single crucial link: each was connected to an all-powerful environmental think tank. Two of the victims' widows—accomplished painter Diane Stevens and international supermodel Kelly Harris—may hold the key to their husbands' demise. Terrified for their lives, suspicious of each other, and armed only with their own wits and guile, they must join forces in a [...]

      could also be called "the bitches did it again!" because really, how many times can someone say that in one novel? it was like a scooby doo episode. "and i would have gotten away with it too" and that would have made more sense than the title, which is just dumb and has nothing to do with the plot at all. but seriously, i was rooting for the bad guys sometimes, because the heroes are just. pathetic airhead twats. at some point, i kept reading hoping they would all die. in the end, i decided that [...]

      It seems that I’m in a Sidney Sheldon marathon this January. This is my second Sheldon novel for the month; I had Morning, Noon & Night last week. What I appreciate about Sidney Sheldon is that his books are always page-turners, the kind that makes you not want to drop the book until you get to the last page. This is the reason why I was able to finish the each of the books above for only one day.But like what I said in my review of Morning, Noon & Night, I find Are You Afraid of the D [...]

      I really enjoyed reading Sidney Sheldon's last novel, ''Are You Afraid of the Dark?'' Not just that, I liked it so much that I would have loved to give it a 4 out of 5, but I cannot possibly ignore it's faults and flaws. Really. But however, despite it's flaws, it seemed a wonderful novel to me- both an emotional and suspenseful novel. Amazing book!The story has a blend of suspense thriller, adventure, drama, sci-fi and romance. Really. Four scientists, working for the KIG (Kingsley Internationa [...]

      Okay, so if this book was Sidney Sheldon at the top of his game, I'm definitely not reading any of his other books because I really didn't like this book.First of all, it was way to predictable. Even for me, who doesn't read a lot of mystery novels. So if you're one who loves mysteries and reads them day in and day out, save yourself the trouble and don't read this one, because a few chapters into the book, it's no longer a mystery.Another thing that annoyed me about this book was our two protag [...]

      Sidney Sheldon's Are you Afraid of the Dark isn't of the same caliber as some of his other works such as Master of the Game, If Tomorrow Comes, or Bloodline. These books have bigger-than-life characters that are still believable. Books like The Best Laid Plans and The Other Side of Midnight have complicated plot twists that the reader considers plausible. The storyline in Are You Afraid of the Dark is simplistic and the book just feels as though it has been rushed. I am a Sidney Sheldon fan, so [...]

      It's all about the endings, isn't it ? So this is his Omertà, the book that capped off his career and quite possibly his life. Naw, just his career. It's hardly his Deerhunter, an obscure Entourage reference that no one will get, haha. Even if Omertà wasn't written by Ser Puzo it's still better than this novel.In stasis, just for the heck of it I reread this because clearly I don't love myself enough but I don't think I have laughed aloud like this in a long while. I laughed until it wasn't fu [...]

      It's really hard to believe this book was written by Sidney Sheldon. Though he's known for writing popular, commercial fiction, this book was downright pretentious and lame! It's riddled with too many unnecesary flashbacks and near misses. The plot, characters, situations, everything is just soo lame! Too bad this was the last novel he ever wrote. I kind of feel sorry for him :/

      Thirty years back, this book would have felt unputdownable. Now, it's an unbearable drag. My humble suggestion: please avoid this inflated work full of two-dimensional stereotypical characters, which is devoid of any real surprise or twist. You can find much-much better techno-thrillers or suspense-driven thrillers now, dime-a-dozenT RECOMMENDED.

      Are you afraid of the Dark is my third novel by Sidney Sheldon, respectfully. The title of the book first caught my attention and I realized I should give it a try. As expected, I was literally blown away by the plot development as I resumed the reading. The plot development was awesome, in it's fair sense. The flashback, which Mr. Sheldon uses became and effective tool in the plot development.The characters, were creatively portrayed with their unique characteristics that will hook the reader a [...]

      Of all the authors I have read so farSidney Sheldon is the one who has never disappointed me.He always comes up with breathtaking unputdownable suspense. The moment one thinks that this is it, there won't be any more surprises BOOM!! and the biggest secret is revealed to you.The ending of his novels are always unpredictable and I simply love them for this very reasonis novel just carries his legacy forward.There is one thing that caught my attention this time; the title of the novel. I love the [...]

      although the run is pretty interesting but at one point it gets too surreal and it does seem like fiction. Is it just me or has Sidney Sheldon lost his touch?

      I don’t usually post negative reviews. If I don’t like a book, then I simply don’t write about it. Sidney Sheldon’s “Are you Afraid of the Dark?” however was such a disappointment I have to make an exception. One of the biggest surprises (Sheldon was after all a playwright and a scriptwriter) was the dialogue. Stilted, flat (no-one seems to use contractions) and “on the nose” (to borrow a screenwriting term) it was at times painful to read. It was almost as if the author had writ [...]

      I'm no Sheldon neophyte. In high school, I ate these books like candy, and sometimes (when I'm stressed, or can't focus on the depth of language in "real" literature) I like to return to the fluff of Sidney Sheldon. Somebody already wrote the perfect review; they stated "this book should have been called 'The Bitches Did It Again,' because that line is used so frequently throughout the novel. Two widows are on the run, trying to escape the perilous fate of their dead husbands. Episode after epis [...]

      I read this book because it is by my mother's favorite author. She told me that is was not one of his best, and I hope she is right because this was super cheesy. The characters were not believable and their emotions did not match their situations. I'm pretty sure if I was being stalked by some crazy, rich, and powerful man who wanted to kill me, I would not go on a shopping spree at an expensive boutique, even if I was looking for a disguise. I'm going to have to read his other books to redeem [...]

      Once in a while, I get an urge to borrow a 'toilet-read'. That's not to say that the book is badly written. Not at all. It's just a term I use to describe something easily digestible, compelling and great fun to read. Sidney Sheldon is one such writer I turn to in moments like these and Are You Afraid Of The Dark lived up to my expectations. I could hardly put the book down and found myself reading it in the car, while I took a shower (yes! It's one of my talents), while I ate my meals and while [...]

      Perhaps it is unfair to judge a writer by his last novel, so I will just say it is boring, predictable, and anachronous. The characters actually called each other, "darling." Dialog appears not to be Sidney Sheldon's strong point.I wasn't suprised to discover that the author has been writing for a very long time and is considered to have a "commercial style" of writing. The two female characters appear shallow and witless, but they still escape from professional assasins time after time. Go figu [...]

      This is my second book by Sidney Sheldon, and I was a little disappointed in this one. It seems like I was listening to a soap opera. Things just didn't seem real or believable. For instance, the two main characters continued to get burned by people after contacting people at KIG. It seems like after the first couple of times, they would realize that KIG was the common link and find another way make contact. Second, the women were shot, but didn't die because the killer wanted to have his way wi [...]

      Generally, very few books that I have read, go to the bottom of my library. Unfortunately, this one is one of them. It was boring and uninteresting to read it and on every 20-30 pages I wanted to throw it away. But I didn't. I decided to give her a chance, because well, who knows, the end could surprise me. But that didn't happen.I will be merciful and will appreciate the novel with two stars. One for originality and one for well, just because there ware any developments.

      It should have been 4 stars but I feel like deducting a star.I deducted a star because Tanner being the villain was a dead giveaway. Aside from being the one behind the killings of six scientists, it wouldn't take a genius to figure out that he was responsible to what had happened to his older brother. Tanner being the second child was always in the shadow of his brother. And he abhor being the second best in the eyes of his parents. So when something happened to Andrew and Tanner played the con [...]
