Sidney Sheldon passes away….

February 1, 2007 at 3:32 pm 5 comments

Sidney Sheldon died on Tuesday afternoon(30th jan. 2007) of complications from pneumonia at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage.When i read this news on CNN IBN….it surely had me shocked.One of my favorite authors,the author who was responsible for inculcating an interest in novels in me was no longer alive.It was really hard to digest.So that meant an end to those nerve wrecking thrillers,no more of those double crossing games,no more female protagonists taking revenge, and that meant an end of an ERA of fantabulous story telling.
Many authors will come and many will go but none of them will be able to fill the lacuna that Sidney Sheldon’s demise has created.The reading community will definitely miss you Mr. Sidney Sheldon….and my bookshelves will never remain the same.

Here’s  a chronological narration of Sidney Sheldon’s life.

My favorite books of Sidney Sheldon (in order of preference)
1.If Tomorrow Comes
2.Doomsday Conspiracy
3.Nothing Lasts Forever
4. Other Side of Midnight
5. Memories of Midnight

Other books by Sidney Sheldon .
Sidney Sheldon’s autobiography….The Other Side Of Me (This is the only book of his that i have not read as yet)

So if you have not read Sidney Sheldon’s books then you better buy a copy and read one.Start with the books that I have recommended,they shall definitely provide for some very good reading hours.

    I’m also sad that sidney sheldon passed away. He’s one of my favorite author too. I like the way he gives importance to women. He thinks that they are not damsel in distress..
    I will forever cherish the books he wrote. they are my treasures..
