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 this was written Like a lot of Sheldon s work, it is soapy but not so much so that we lose interest In fact, that s actually part of its charm.Anyone who remembers watching The Other Side of Midnight, then grabbing a copy of the book, knows how much fun it can be to read the master of melodrama Sheldon s never going to make anyone forget Remarque s Three Comrades, but for sheer entertainment, you can t beat The Sands of Time If you ve got a few days at the beach, you won t be sorry you took this with you. 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.Finally, I found a good copy for only Php150 Lucky huh will give the review next time D 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 other works.
