Did not care for it

For us Sheldon readers, we are always hungry for more until we reach the climax in any of his books and discover some mind spinning twists about a charater that run chills down our spine, but unfortunately, I was so convinced that the twist would be about a specific character that when I came to the conclusion, I was left hanging. I may be the only person who wasn't completely satisfied by this book, but it was still worth reading. Besides, I was surprised the book had a creepy ending. If he was willing to experiment, Sheldon should try a horror novel.

The prologue was the best beginning of any book I've read and its tie-in with the ending was genius. You gotta read this book!

Read this a while back and I thought it was great. Just reread it and had to laugh, the twists were so much better back when, but I still enjoyed it, Maybe I'm becoming jaded, LOL

This book has been passed around my whole family and most of my co-workers. We all loved this book and recomend it to anyone and everyone. Although in the beginning I found it a bit difficult to stay on track with the two stories being told it was worth sticking it out. For teenagers or adults of any race, it just doesn't matter. The book is great.

Yes, this is one of my favourite Sheldon book. I was earlier avoiding the book as the summary did not seem to be matching his other works like Bloodline, Naked Face But I was proved wrong. This book has all ingredients of love,hate, power, vengenance and of course tragedy. An almost realistic book. I liked the ending and also the elaborate narrations of the rise of Toby Temple as a Hollywood star.Though the book has only a few characters the book is fun and unputdonwable.

This was by far the best book I've ever read! I finished it in no time because it was impossible to set down for even a minute! The details were all so vivid, and I felt as if I knew the characters! An excellent novel!

This is another great book by Sidney Sheldon which is impossible to put down. Sheldon goes in great detail in portraying the characters, and the plot is amazing!

I haven't read a Sidney Sheldon book in years, and now I remember why. Stranger in the Mirror is classic Sheldon--sexist, classist, homophobic, soap opera, but if you know that going in and are not looking for intellectual stimulation, then this is a quick read. Only in the world of Sheldon characters can a man who attempts to stab to death his sister's Mexican laborer lover be seen as having made an unfortunate but ultimately forgivable lapse of judgement, but God-forbid the woman that he wants to marry having made a porno-flick years before. Again, a quick read when you've got nothing better to do, but you may have to remind yourself more than once that what you're reading was intended to be dramatic stuff.
