    1 thought on “The Sky is Falling

    1. Ok read! typical S.Sheldon's kinda writing and storyline that involves entangled crime,mystery and a little suspenseful with a few flawed characters (paperback!)

    2. When I started reading it, I just couldn't leave it. It was such a hooker!!This was my first book by this author and ever since, I am his big fan. I love his way of writing and the best thing is the element of surprise. It revolves around a reporter(Dana Evans) who is working on a story, a dangerous story which poses a threat to her life. I just love Dana! She is so witty and controlled The books of Sheldon are so full of Suspense, you just can't put the book downI tried to but just couldn't.JUS [...]

    3. A fantastic read.In a normal book,the suspense is about who the killer is.But in this Sidney's masterpiece,the suspense builds right from the start on whether the consecutive deaths are murders are just a co-incidence.The character Dana Evans is portrayed with a surgeon's precision and I would love to meet such a character in real life.The cute love between Dana and Jeff, Jeff's concern for his ex-wife Rachel while she is in trouble are all simple things that make up this master-piece.The secret [...]

    4. I picked this up at a library sale, having never read anything from Sheldon before, and the dust jacket spoke highly of him and his other work (books, TV shows, awards, etc.). Well, it's obvious they weren't talking about this book. This one contains a very thin plot, foreseeable twists, and very little imagery outside of the basic story. Good authors, who do their homework, can put the reader in the character's shoes - what they're thinking, feeling, and seeing. Here you have a main character w [...]

    5. Quick read. Not necessarily my cup o' tea. I'd just finished a book. I wasn't sure what to start next. I was in the mood for something mystery/thriller. I didn't have anything that fit the bill on my shelves at present and no time to run to the bookstore. Two friends of mine had just finished reading this book, they liked it and recommended it. I said, why not give it a try. We have different tastes in book genres, the three of us but they both said that Sidney Sheldon is one of their favorite a [...]

    6. I am so sorry to write this, but this book wasn't my cup of tea. I didn't like the reason for the deaths in this story. Crime is my favorite genre and I don't like this type of crime stories. The style of writing is pretty light, it's an easy read, I did like the twist that happens, I just didn't enjoy reading this book as much, I had a totally different expectations.

    7. What do I say w/o sounding like the critics or the back of the book cover? I loved how he picked this title; from dialogue. The main character runs into her bosses office and he says you come running in here like Chicken Little screaming "The sky is falling, the sky is falling." I love that. But, this is really signature Sidney Sheldon. Once you begin reading, just buckle in and keep turning the pages. Once I reached like chapter 9 I had a difficult time putting it down. So much so, that I finis [...]

    8. I picked this book up because it was a "New York Times bestseller" and I had never read anything by Sidney Sheldon and wanted to see what I thought of him as an author. Answer: Not much. Situations are contrived, characters don't feel like real people. Just about every page has something on it that strains credibility, or seems fake or contrived. Conversations don't feel real. Situations don't feel real. There are lots of stupid little mistakes and inconsistencies. I won't pick up any more Sidne [...]

    9. Not finished - Probably won't finish since the e-library copy expired on my nook color a week ago.Here's the thing - this book above all else, is incredibly predictable. The plot is blah, the characters under-developed and shallow. He describes the characters(namely the men) the same. I suspect her fiance is the bad guy- lol. Either way, I was very disappointed. But don't take my word for it. (haaa)Sidney is a talented writer, no doubt. I just didn't care for this particular novel. Read "Memorie [...]

    10. a friend recommended this book to me have to admit I did not expect a lot but I was pleasantly surprisedTHE SKY IS FALLING is a scintillating thriller set against a world-class background. The elegantly crafted plot builds from curiosity to terror culminating in a conspiracy of enormous proportion. While fiction has its roots in truth, from the Author's Note at the end, one wonders. Could this really happen, or has it?

    11. "It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit." -Antoine Rivarol One day, you find yourself picking up a book you would never think about laying your hands upon and almost suddenly this novel has you fastened to the couch ominously preventing you from gazing away, even for a second from its iron-grip. The protagonist is a witty news reporter that has acquired fame from the perilous, lethal news reports she covers. The genesis of the plot is sparked by the curiosity she succumbs [...]

    12. Yawn. Another book from the box o' paperbacks (I am beginning to sense why my neighbor is getting rid of them). Written in the early nineties - characters were pretty lame. Tons of story lines and none of them intriguing enough to develop - apparently even for the author.

    13. i wanted to give this book 5 stars but :) nothing is perfect in life had to find something imperfect with it so there was i thought that it was not long enough (funny)on the other hand this was a very well written book

    14. Muy buen libro, la verdad que me encantó, aunque con un final bastante confuso Como siempre los libros de Sidney Sheldon, te atrapan, y te dejan como mas. Mucho misterio y Suspenso! me encantoo (= Recomendadisimo

    15. رهيييبةحاسة حالي عشت احداث فلم اكشن امريكي :|من بداية الرواية لحد اكتر من نصها ماكنت فاهمة حاجة وكل اشي داخل ببعضهوفجاة بدا كل اشي يوضح وفهمت كل اشي :|مممم اول مرة اقرا هالنوع من الروايااتاستمعت كتير :D

    16. Note to Mr. Sheldon: 20-somethings don't speak like Dana Evans. They don't call everyone, including boyfriends, "darling."

    17. Few hundred pages were great, and fast paced. I could feel the thrill. Though after a while, it started to become rather repetitive and boring

    18. Cuốn tiểu thuyết thứ 2 mình đọc của Sidney Sheldon và lần này lại là một cảm giác hào hứng trước cuộc phiêu lưu đầy kịch tính nữa của nhà văn này.Một đặc điểm trong cách tạo hình nhân vật của Sidney rất đặc biệt, đó là ông luôn chọn bắt đầu câu chuyện với những nhân vật nổi tiếng và có chức vụ cao (tất nhiên là hư cấu) đặt trong bối cảnh xã hội thì lại có thực. Điều [...]

    19. Another nice piece from Master Storyteller. But, my expectation was little high. From starting, story's plot was spreading. When it finished, I was felt that where is the special thrill! Dana Evans was a strong role. Kemal was a mystery to me. Jeff was the lucky guy who has his love in life.

    20. 3.5 estrellasEste es otra de mis ''lecturas para colectivo o lugares que tengo que estar mucho tiempo sentada'' (corta denominación, jajaja)Dana Evans es una reconocida periodista de Estados Unidos. Volvió hace poco a su hogar, ya que estuvo cubriendo la guerra directo desde Sarajevo para el noticiario en donde ella es conductora. Su valentía y humanidad traspasó la pantalla para así ganarse el cariño y la admiración de todo el público. Mientras se adapta de nuevo a su vida cotidiana, ju [...]

    21. I read this book to prepare for a First Reads book that (perfect timing) arrived yesterday. I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was definitely worth the read, and I wouldn't mind picking it up again for a deeper read. Although, I'm not sure a deeper read is possible. This is a book where the suspense is palpable, but the characters are a little flat. If you're looking for a book where the mystery is intense, this is for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for characters t [...]

    22. ESPAÑOL / SPANISHHacia muchisimo tiempo que no leia un libro tan bueno! Amo Sidney Sheldon! empecé a leer cosas de él por recomendación de mi Tio (el mejor del mundo tengo que decir) No es el primer libro de Sidney Sheldon empecé con "Si fuera un mañana" y me enamore!Me encanta a idea de que las mujeres sean las triunfadoras debido a que en la gran mayoria de libros, los hombres siempre salvan el mundo.Volviendo al tema en "Presentimientos" Dana Evans es una periodista muy inteligente! Me [...]

    23. Efficiently brisk and reliably suspenseful, Sheldon's novel demonstrates that this veteran master of commercial fiction has not lost his touch. Freshly returned to Washington, D.C from a stint reporting in Sarajevo, TV newscaster Dana Evans (introduced in Sheldon's "The Best Laid Plans") struggles to cope with her new adopted son, troubled 12-year-old Kemal, whose parents and sister were killed in the fighting. Back on the job, Dana interviews youngish millionaire Gary Winthrop, the scion of a K [...]

    24. arren AshleyJanuary 7 near Owings MillsI finished reading The Sky Is Falling, a second book by Sidney Sheldon, my friend Mary Lou recommended to me, whose style I took an instant liking to. Dana Evans, a news anchor, travels all over the world inquiring about leads to the death of Gary Winthrop, a senatorial hopeful. She has recently adopted Kemal, a little boy with one arm and takes a liking to Jeff, a sports reporter. Kemal has trouble in school as he constantly retaliates after getting bullie [...]
