When I was about to finish The Best Laid Plans by Sidney Sheldon, I realized that I couldn't get enough of the author. The more I read his works, more I fall in love with his writings. Probably the most translated author and a master storyteller are well suited compliments for Sidney Sheldon.

The Best Laid Plans by Sidney Sheldon

Title:- The Best Laid Plans

Author:- Sidney Sheldon

Number of Pages:- 344

Publisher:- Harper Collins

Genre:- Suspense/Thriller

My Verdict:- 

I came across this book while browsing Sidney Sheldon's books. The one great thing about the author I like the most is that he plans and implement the plot very cleverly. He knows how to pull the readers attention and he is very much successful in building up the suspense throughout the storyline.

This book is about jealousy, anger, ego revenge and all sorts of similar emotions you can think of. The plot is extremely well executed and Sidney Sheldon knows well when to open up the mystery. The conspiracy theory he brings in in this book is pretty much attention grabbing which will lead you to crave for more.

It is about two characters primarily, Leslie Stewart who is a beautiful PR executive who learns through her experience that power is all she needed for the revenge. Oliver Russell who is a governor of small southern state and a presidential candidate with strong chances of winning.

The story has a lot of twists and turns which will keep your mind busy in guessing the sequence of events. The thing about Sidney Sheldon's books is that you keep on guessing and get surprised every time. If you like reading Sidney Sheldon and a die hard fan of Suspense/Thriller genre with a political touch, this book is definitely for you.

My rating:

I would like to give this book 4/5 because of engaging plot and the way the story unfolds itself chapter by chapter.

Title:- The Rozabal Line

Author:- Ashwin Sanghi

Number of Pages:-362

Publisher:- Westland Ltd.

Genre:- Thriller

My Verdict:- 

The Rozabal Line is the first book by the author. It was published by the author himself under a pseudonym, Shawn Haigins in 2007 before being published by Westland in 2008 under his own name. Coming to the book, as I have read the other two books of the same author viz. Chanakya's Chant and The Krishna Key, I decided to pick this one as well.

One thing which I like about the author is the way he is able to grip the reader's attention by writing in such a way that it seems like a movie is being played vividly in front of the eyes while reading. The enormous  amount of research the author puts in his books is something which can be an eye opener as well.

Secondly, through his books, author definitely depicts his love for the history and he is very much able to build up an intriguing plot with it. Easy language is what makes his books a fast reading experience.

The story of The Rozabal Line is gripping tale that depicts the birth of religion and how it has been molded across the ages which can be seen through the sequence of events that occur in the book as the story gradually progresses. The use of past life regression technique is also something which kept me hooked to the book till the end.

Finally, carefully chosen characters and building up of suspense is the nest quality which will keep your mind busy guessing. Overall a wonderful read by the author. If you are a history buff with an inclination towards suspense/thriller genre, I am sure this book will not disappoint you.

My Rating:-

I would rate this book 4.5/5 because of its engaging, intriguing plot and authors way of writing the story which makes it fun to read.
