I must admit that prior to reading Danielle Steel's Star, I had not shown any interest in Steel's novels; for the ones about which I'd heard all sounded like Knot's Landing in novel fiction ...

But after reading Star, I'd developed a genuine respect for the fictional storytelling of Ms. Steel, and I don't feel that those made-for-TV movies based on her books do the novels themselves any justice.

About a month after its release, after I finally read the synopsis, I went out and purchased Star in paperback. And once I got started, I was hooked. The storyline gripped me from the beginning, and I really bonded with Crystal ... You just feel for her, you know? The odds she had set against her and all...

Star is an excellent book, and worthy of 5 stars. I won't go on, lest I end up spoiling it for anyone else, but it's definitely a great novel with well developed characters and a fierce plot. I highly recommend it. ( )

This was the first book I'd read of her. It was such a great story of tragedy and triumph. It took you through the life of a young woman who suffered so much and for a long time. I love the way the story was told and it remains a terrific book to me. ( )

From one of the book boxes that Moem sent to me, this book is looking for a new home.
