Memories of Midnight PDF ä Memories of PDF/EPUB ²

A story mixed with revenge, greed, romance and want for justice Catherine didn t have any idea how her life would become upside down when Demeris arrives in her life, not in a good way He is trouble, ensuring at each point Catherine suffers It is the sequel to The Other Side of Midnight but you will not miss out on anything much The story is still enjoyable. Memories of Midnight 1990 is a sequel to The Other Side of Midnight 1973 , what many people consider to be one of his best novels Memories, however, holds its own mixing revenge, greed, justice, and romance.I think it s a sign of a good book if, after some ten odd years, you can read it again and remember nearly all of the characters That s what this one was like for me.Demiris, the vengeful Greek billionaire Chotas, the brilliant lawyer and Catherine, the amnesic who just wants to fall i Memories of Midnight 1990 is a sequel to The Other Side of Midnight 1973 , what many people consider to be one of his best novels Memories, however, holds its own mixing revenge, greed, justice, and romance.I think it s a sign of a good book if, after some ten odd years, you can read it again and remember nearly all of the characters That s what this one was like for me.Demiris, the vengeful Greek billionaire Chotas, the brilliant lawyer and Catherine, the amnesic who just wants to fall in love the weakest character of the bunch, imo.Nevertheless, Sheldon is a master of plot In fact I don t know anyone who writes as breezy as he does a good thing , while throwing in as many twists and turns.I think part of James Patterson s success is due to his incredibly short chapters Like them or not, it just makes you feel like you re flipping the pages faster and you are because of all the white space Similarly, part of Sheldon s success I think is due not to short chapters but his short paragraphs Anywhere he can fit in a break he does It s a good technique to keep things moving, and it allows him to jump all over the place and get inside everyone s head seemingly without effort.More than any of Sydney Sheldon s novels, Memories of Midnight shows that the author comes from the movie and television script writing with its short scenes and generic descriptions of people and settings.The late Sydney Sheldon was the author of eighteen bestselling novels He wrotethan 200 television scripts and twenty five movie scripts and six Broadway scripts He started writing novels at the age of fifty.Highly recommended Sequels are usually tamer than the first book This one was still a good read, but was probably a sop to those of us who felt a bit cheated at poor Catherine s fate I think we all wanted a bitfor her. What a painful read this has been Everything from the plot to the writing was utterly banal This book didn t manage to quirk my interest at any point The whole thing to me seemed blatantly stupid, to be honest.Characters, along with being hackneyed were also completely unrealistic Especially, Constantin Dimires who was most ludicrous of all I ve read 2 Sidney Sheldon books before this and one thing that I ve found to be consistent in his novels is the dreadful writing The language, as alway What a painful read this has been Everything from the plot to the writing was utterly banal This book didn t manage to quirk my interest at any point The whole thing to me seemed blatantly stupid, to be honest.Characters, along with being hackneyed were also completely unrealistic Especially, Constantin Dimires who was most ludicrous of all I ve read 2 Sidney Sheldon books before this and one thing that I ve found to be consistent in his novels is the dreadful writing The language, as always, was extremely appalling and the plot evenasinine.After this book, I seem to have developed a strong aversion to Sheldon s books, for good In THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT, they played the ultimate game of love, lust, and deathNow, in MEMORIES OF MIDNIGHT, the survivors meet to play one last timeShadowed by tragedy and burdened by amnesia, a beautiful woman desperately tries to return to reality She is Catherine Douglas, destined to once again challenge the cruel, charismatic power of Constantin Demiris, the Greek shipping tycoon who murdered Catherine s husband Now, in the glittering capitals and carefree playgrounds of post war Europe, Demiris sets his deadly sights on Catherine and the single, treacherous secret whose shattering truth is known to her alone Sorry Sheldon Sorry sorry sorry sorry.It feels awful giving one of my favorite writer s books a two star rating And this is not the only one of his books where I have done that but nine times out of ten I love his books It is just that he has so many it is inevitable there will be one or two I will not like.But this is the one that let me down the most.Why because it is part two of his masterpiece one of his masterpieces The other side of midnight That was not a book that, in my opinion Sorry Sheldon Sorry sorry sorry sorry.It feels awful giving one of my favorite writer s books a two star rating And this is not the only one of his books where I have done that but nine times out of ten I love his books It is just that he has so many it is inevitable there will be one or two I will not like.But this is the one that let me down the most.Why because it is part two of his masterpiece one of his masterpieces The other side of midnight That was not a book that, in my opinion ever needed a part two But once I heard there WAS a part two I could not wait.But as with most sequels It was a let down.None of the characters in book two who were in book one seemed to be the same person They really didn t.But most of all was the issues with Constantine Demires.SPOILERS FOR BOTH BOOKS IN THE SERIES Constantine Demires was one of the most fascinating characters ever created He was like Kaiser Soze meets Tony Soprano meets a nasty version of Batman The master manipulator and a charismatic but mysterious and impossible to understand thunder bolt.Not in part two Here he is literally a different person, the usual bumbling but dangerous villain I could not believe it In fact I was so upset that I prefer to pretend I did not read this at all sorry but Part of the allure..actually all of it..with Demires is his crackling intensity and utter brilliance but he is not dangerous unless you wrong him Now in book two he is just a frantic killer and still obsessed with Noelle Page Never Not the Demires from book one I was thinking what on earth has HAPPENED to him And Catherine She just wakes up and doesn t tell anyone what happened to her There was no reality to it I also did not buy her love for the therapist This was a woman who literally went crazy because of Larry No way would she have been this..for lack of a better word..normal after all that happened.And the lawyers have done a good lawyer bad lawyer role reversal I felt bad I felt like the book was phoned in And I say that with so much love for the first book.If you are a fan of book one..or at least a mega fan..you maybe let down by this I don t know It is hard NOT to recommend a Sheldon book as I love his literature so fiercely Decide for yourself Memories is a brilliant novel that keeps the juices of one s
