Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this ``crudely carved'' sequel to The Other Side of Midnight , Greek tycoon Constantin Demiris orders the deaths of anyone who can prove he engineered a somewhat unsuccessful plot to execute his mistress Catherine--now amnesiac--and her lover. ``Subtlety is not Sheldon's strong suit, but rarely has it been so utterly absent from his character development and plotting,'' said PW .

Meet the Author

Sidney Sheldon

The novelist and screenwriter Sidney Sheldon remains one of the world’s top bestselling authors, having sold more than 300 million copies of his books. Are You Afraid of the Dark? was his most recent in a long line of huge hits on bestseller lists everywhere. He is also the only writer to have won an Oscar, a Tony, and an Edgar Award. The Guinness Book of World Records heralds him as the most translated author in the world. Sidney Sheldon passed away on January 30, 2007.

Biography

Best known today for his exciting blockbuster novels, Sidney Sheldon was the author of The Best Laid Plans, Nothing Lasts Forever, The Stars Shine Down, The Doomsday Conspiracy, Memories of Midnight, The Sands of Time, Windmills of the Gods, If Tomorrow Comes, Master of the Game, Rage of Angels, Bloodline, A Stranger in the Mirror, and The Other Side of Midnight. Almost all of them were number-one international bestsellers. His first book, The Naked Face, was acclaimed by the New York Times as "the best first mystery of the year" and received an Edgar Award. Most of his novels became major feature films or TV miniseries, and there are more than 275 million copies of his books in print throughout the world.

Before he became a novelist, Sheldon had already won a Tony Award for Broadway's Redhead and an Academy Award for The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer. He has written the screenplays for twenty-three motion pictures, including Easter Parade (with Judy Garland) and Annie Get Your Gun. In addition, he penned six other Broadway hits and created three long-running television series, including Hart to Hart and I Dream of Jeannie, which he also produced. A writer who delighted millions with his award-winning plays, movies, novels, and television shows, Sidney Sheldon reigned as one of the most popular storytellers of all time.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Sheldon:

"When I was 17, I was happy to be working in a drugstore, because I could steal enough sleeping pills to commit suicide."

"I have bi-polar syndrome and was not aware what was disturbing me until I received an Academy Award and went to see a psychiatrist."

"I have worked 7 days a week as long as I can remember. A business manager of mine gave me $25 worth of tennis lessons. I went down to my tennis court and we played once a week. I really enjoyed it. Playing with the pro one day, my teacher said to me that the money had been spent and did I want to continue. I started to say yes, then I realized that I didn't want to be out on the tennis court. I wanted to be in my office writing. That was 25 years ago and I haven't been on my tennis court since."

    Dont expect a good ending

    Catherine is back and still crying like a baby and dying to fall in love! UGH! Hate that part of the story..

    Besides that... This one was entertaining but not as good as the other one.

    Demiris is back and ready to hunt down and kill everyone that pisses him off.. This time trying to cover his tracks.

    Melina.. she kept me reading it. She was so determined and I like determination. I wanted to find out what she was going to do about her husband, after everything he put her through! and what she did was awesome sad, but awesome and she got a standing ovation from me.

    I didn't like the ending at all! Thats the reason for only 3 stars.. It was so boring, non eventful, after all of the ups and downs that were placed in the books for the ending to be so blahhhh it made me mad!

    It was like riding a rollercoaster getting to the top where you will be dropped and then the whole park is shut down!

    So don't expect a superb ending.

    Memories of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon

    I had read this book when it was first published as I had read all Sidney Sheldon's books. They are exciting and the characters are so interesting. I decided to read it again and I enjoyed it just as much.
    I, also, just reread Nothing Lasts Forever and enjoyed it as much.

    A suspense and thrill ride

    I found this book to be exciting and thrilling at every turn of the page. It is a sequel which proved to be just as exciting as the first book. Sidney Sheldon is an exceptional writer with his vivid descriptions gave me a great visual as to the surrounding and places the characters encountered. This book does not disappoint. This goes to prove that oldies are still goodies.

    FIRST TIME

    Memories of Midnight was the first book I ever read by Sidney Sheldon. He did an outstanding job at captivating my attention. He held my interest from the beginning, with the book's cover. I did not understand what was happening at the beginning because I had not read the first book of the series. As I was reading along the story I began to comprehend the plot. Constantin Demiris was a man not to be taken lightly. He was feared as much as he was loved. He was a mastermind and almost everything seemed to go his way. Cathering Douglas was very innocent to the end. She was tortured by her past because she couldn't remember it and until she got out of her safe haven. She met with Demiris and was grateful for his help. Sidney Sheldon was very suspensful, just when I thought Demiris was going to get what he deserved something happened to stop him from being punished. Sheldon is a master at plot twisting and a great story teller. I recommend this book to anyone who has a sense of adventure.
