    One thought on “The Sands of Time”

    1. No one really ever wrote a entertaining romantic potboiler than Sidney Sheldon, and The Sands of Time is one of his best It has loads of color and atmosphere, and characters you root for Each divergent story line is as interesting as the last, Sheldon s tremendous gift for storytelling on grand display here.You won t forget nuns though not all are actually nuns Lucia, Teresa, Graciela or Megan, nor will you forget the wonderfully colorful portrait of Spain and its conflicts of the period when t [...]

    2. This books is a story about some nuns who have different and strange background and who are either trying to get away from this nun ship or want to involve deeply into it.Either way they end up getting outside the place they spend their lives and to see the world and how it is working and doing now.With a lot of tragedies and up and downs in these women s lives, this story progresses.Having read considerable number of books by Sidney Sheldon, I thought it could have been entertaining than his [...]

    3. It failed to disappoint I love this book The first time I read it I was just a sopho student in high school and I just couldn t put it down It really different from the usual stories that I was used to reading I promised myself then that I will buy a copy of my own.I started collecting books then with John Grisham s and Agatha Christie s works It was so hard to find this book from second hand bookstores I couldn t afford to buy a new one since I was still a student and lived on a tight budget.Fi [...]

    4. When I finished reading this book, my first reaction wasI mean, after all the excruciating details for the bull run, the convent, what happened with Sister Teresa in the military camp and some other things that I cannot remember any I did mention in my other reviews that I do not have a good memory , I found the ending somewhat lacking Okay, to be perfectly honest, I found the ending totally lacking After reading this book and after my what the hell moment, I really wanted to hit something or ev [...]

    5. A good read but far from perfect 1 Not a single likeable memorable character in the entire book2 The entire backdrop of Spanish Civil war didn t have major impact 3 Too many characters, each with his detailed backstory which had no relevance to the main story OK except 1 Not the auhor s best work But overall a good read So 3 5

    6. An okayish thriller I know it is a story and one should not have too many questions but still there were many things not very convincing The premise was good This is the second book I have come across of a convent with the code of silence followed by its inhabitants But the atmosphere was so different from The Beautiful Mystery which was a five starrer for me.It is the story of four nuns who escape from their convent during a military attack on it and of the rebel leader Jaimie Miro How all thei [...]

    7.

    8. I couldn t put it down at all I never wanted to stop reading it, it was a really addicting and enticing read But then we are talking about Sidney Sheldon aren t we Though I think at a point in the middle I thought the flashbacks were getting a little too much, but then I found myself grateful for all that knowledge The character development was precise and each character had an intricately drawn past which was explained in detail And that does sound awesome.

    9. Either I am going to reallyyy regret my decision to read Mr Sheldon or it might be the start of a beautiful love story starring me and his books But keeping in mind my history with suspense thriller chances are of latter.

    14. Sidney Sheldon spins a yarn that is both entertaining and addictive It was a spellbinding moment reading the thick and rich plot At first, I thought Sands of Times is gory and bloody, chaotic, historical and violent However, it was the opposite It was a 400 page full of reminisces of each of the major characters On the other hand, Sidney Sheldon s writing prowess is sometimes predictable, in a good sense that you want to prove you re right And when you are, you felt great because you feel that y [...]

    15.

    17. It has been an engrossing and entertaining read throughout the time i had this book.The book can be described as a true novel with mixed feelings and emotions throughout and as the title aptly describes, a sequence of events adventures would be better and feelings and their change with time.Its worthy of the time you spentA problem i had noticed was that each character had a flashback to him her and it becomes difficult to match the characters with their flashblack as the story progresses and it [...]

    20. Another Sidney Sheldon book with strong heroines and huge plots Once again, Sidney Sheldon shows his attitude of money and power can buy anyone or anything I was kinda surprised reading the blurb when I came to know that the heroines are nuns The freedom fighting, terrorists and spies make the book all the interesting and spicy Well, there were few gross, filthy parts every book of his has some that I hated The prose was kinda bland too but somehow added glamour to the thriller I loved the end [...]

    21. Warning Once you start you cannot stop, seriously You have to make sure you re not in the middle of something especially cooking, or in my case studying for exams This is the very definition of page turner brought to you by the master story teller himself.This is one of the best of Sidney Sheldon the other one is The Master of the Game I finished it in one sitting, believe me And it was midterms week, of all things I think I went to bed at 4am back then I didn t regret it though, my eyes hurt so [...]

    22. Started this book with lot of expectations as the author Sindney Sheldon has a huge fan following in India and it was my debut read of his books Opening scene was the only highlight of the book Rest of the incidents that took place were merely coincidental with lots of loopholes in the plot Author s writing was very straightforward and too boring which makes the story less interesting Not sure if I will pick his other works or not

    23. One my favorite books Another book I cried to and I fell in love with Jaime Miro.In my opinion, one of Sidney Sheldon s best It had suspense, humor, romance and history all rolled into one.
