    Kept you on the edge of your seat until the end of the book.

    This book throws so many twists at you. You never know what is going to happen next. I recommend this book to high school readers and anyone above. If you like a good thriller, and a book that catches you off guard, Are You Afraid of the Dark is the book for you. This book teaches you to trust noone.

    Shelton scores another suspense novel

    This fast paced story begins with the death of three men in seperate parts of the world. How do their deaths relate? It is up to two young widows to discover the connection. Their plight takes them on a wild chase while the enemy tries to thart them at every turn. Who is the enemy? I found this to be a fun and exciting book...easy reading and hard to put down.

    A SUITABLY SCARY READING

    Better keep the lights on (and it wouldn't hurt to make sure the doors are locked) when you listen to the latest thriller by that master of suspense, Sidney Sheldon. Actually, I'm doing him a bit of a disservice by calling him a 'master of suspense' when, in actuality, he's a master of much - from creating hit television programs to winning an Oscar to being the most translated author in the world. But, there's not room to list all of his awards and accolades, so to 'Are You Afraid of the Dark?' on audio CDs by HarperAudio. This scary story of two young women fighting for their lives is ably read by Kit Flanagan. She gives each woman equal emphasis, clearly projecting their fears and strengths. Four mysterious happenings occur - miles apart. Surely there can't be a connection. A woman disappears while on a street in Berlin; the Eiffel Tower is a take-off platform for a man; a small plane goes down in Denver; and the East River yields a body in New York. It doesn't take authorities long to discover that there can be and is a connection - the four people in question are all connected to an enormous think tank. The widows of two of the victims, Kelly Harris and Diane Stevens, are young and bereaved. They meet in New York where the head of the think tank convinces them that he's stopping at nothing to find out how and why their husbands died. Those questions almost become moot when Kelly and Diane discover that their lives are at stake. Who wants to destroy them and why? They do not know. Sheldon always delivers shivers, and he does it again. - Gail Cooke

    Well-worth the read

    I enjoyed this book thouroughly. It was very Sidney Sheldon-esk...suspensful, fast-paced, addicting. I didn't like it as much as his other books, however. Nonetheless, its worth a read :)

    Very good Book

    I absolutely love well written books, and this book was very well written. The character development was great and the story kept my interest. It touched many of my emotions. Another book I recommend is A Year Since Yesterday by a writer I was not previously familiar with, George Edward Zintel. It is also one of the very best books I have ever read. If you buy A Year Since Yesterday, it is listed as paperback but is actally a high quality soft-cover. Great book for the money!!

    Perfect for a long-haul flight

    After a long wait we have a new novel from Sidney Sheldon. The 300-odd pages zap by and before you know it you've enjoyed a well-told tale. The format is not new but it works and if you start reading at LAX you will have finished before CDG ! Enjoy the flight & the book !
