The story was soo realistic and shady at the same time that it made me sick ( )

Didn't really care for the main character. She had a terrible childhood that made her become obsessive with owning property and having the best. ( )

Great read. ( )

Sidney Sheldon is quite the writer and that is reflected once again in The Stars Shine Down which follows a young girl with an abusive father who shrugs off the shackles of her small town and father to rise to the top of the real estate development world, then towards the end it looks as if one too many risks have been taken and everything is going to crumble back down.

It's a good page turner which draws you in with a decent female protagonist however I couldn't help but feel the ending was a bit of a let down, I felt like there could have been more too it and detail what actually happened to the main characters.

Despite that it was still an entertaining read. ( )

Weak excuse for a novel

Lara Cameron is young and beautiful. Rising from a past she seeks to repress, she achieves her wildest ambition, creating a much envied business empire. Then, overnight, all that has gone - her fortune, her achievements, and her marriage - everything is at risk.
