No one really ever wrote a more entertaining romantic potboiler than Sidney Sheldon, and The Sands of Time is one of his best. It has loads of color and atmosphere, and characters you root for. Each divergent story-line is as interesting as the last, Sheldon's tremendous gift for storytelling on grand display here.You won't forget nuns -- though not all are actually nuns -- Lucia, Teresa, Graciela or Megan, nor will you forget the wonderfully colorful portrait of Spain and its conflicts of the p [...]

This books is a story about some nuns who have different and strange background and who are either trying to get away from this nun-ship or want to involve more deeply into it.Either way they end up getting outside the place they spend their lives and to see the world and how it is working and doing now.With a lot of tragedies and up and downs in these women's lives, this story progresses.Having read considerable number of books by Sidney Sheldon, I thought it could have been more entertaining t [...]

It failed to disappoint. I love this book. The first time I read it I was just a sophomore student in high school and I just couldn't put it down. It really different from the usual stories that I was used to reading. I promised myself then that I will buy a copy of my own.I started collecting books then with John Grisham's and Agatha Christie's works. It was so hard to find this book from second-hand bookstores. I couldn't afford to buy a new one since I was still a student and lived on a tight [...]

When I finished reading this book, my first reaction wasI mean, after all the excruciating details for the bull run, the convent, what happened with Sister Teresa in the military camp and some other things that I cannot remember anymore (I did mention in my other reviews that I do not have a good memory), I found the ending somewhat lacking. Okay, to be perfectly honest, I found the ending totally lacking. After reading this book and after my "what the hell?" moment, I really wanted to hit somet [...]

A good read but far from perfect: 1. Not a single likeable/memorable character in the entire book2. The entire backdrop of Spanish Civil war didn't have major impact. 3. Too many characters, each with his detailed backstory which had no relevance to the main story(OK except 1 )Not the auhor's best work But overall a good read. So 3/5

An okayish thriller. I know it is a story and one should not have too many questions but still there were many things not very convincing. The premise was good . This is the second book I have come across of a convent with the code of silence followed by its inhabitants. . But the atmosphere was so different from The Beautiful Mystery which was a five starrer for me.It is the story of four nuns who escape from their convent during a military attack on it and of the rebel leader Jaimie Miro . How [...]

“The difference between a rebel and a patriot depends upon who is in power at the moment.” — Sidney Sheldon, Sands of TimeThe Sands of Time is an action-packed novel published in 1988 by the Master of Unexpected, Sidney Sheldon. The story is set 37 years after the Civil War in Spain or the Spanish Inquisition (which lasted from 1936-1939). Remember, that Civil War was one of the bloodiest civil wars in history. More than half people lost their homes and lives in the battles for power betwe [...]

I couldn't put it down at all. I never wanted to stop reading it, it was a really addicting and enticing read. But then we are talking about Sidney Sheldon aren't we? Though I think at a point in the middle I thought the flashbacks were getting a little too much, but then I found myself grateful for all that knowledge. The character development was precise and each character had an intricately drawn past which was explained in detail. And that does sound awesome.

Either I am going to reallyyy regret my decision to read Mr. Sheldon or it might be the start of a beautiful love story! (starring me and his books) But keeping in mind my history with suspense/thriller chances are of latter.

4 nuns escape their covent with a group of terrorist. They walk through the mountains to different countries, and finally to the basque countries. Lucia. Graciela. Megan. And Teresa. All of them has a terrible terrible ending. Except for sister Megan and Graciela. Even though the plot of the story is really messed up, and really complicated, the theme was obvious in the end. Help others and you will get your help back. Helping someone and tricking them into something, can be the best way to assa [...]

This is a story of four nuns who were able to escape the hostile military forces of Acoca who got into their convent. They were instructed by the Reverend Mother to take the convent's most precious possession with them and bring it to the next convent where it can be safely kept and where they can seek refuge as well. However, they fall into the hands of the rebel group led by Jaime Miro. Jaime Miro was ultimately the handsomest rebel this story has ever created. He was so manly, undeniably char [...]

Sidney Sheldon spins a yarn that is both entertaining and addictive. It was a spellbinding moment reading the thick and rich plot. At first, I thought Sands of Times is gory and bloody, chaotic, historical and violent. However, it was the opposite. It was a 400 page full of reminisces of each of the major characters. On the other hand, Sidney Sheldon's writing prowess is sometimes predictable, in a good sense that you want to prove you're right. And when you are, you felt great because you feel [...]

"The difference between a patriot and a rebel depends on who is in power at the moment"I have no words how much I adore Sidney Sheldon and his books, and his brain, and his ideas, and his entire being. There will never be another Sidney Sheldon. Note that. THERE WON'T BE A STORYTELLER LIKE SIDNEY SHELDON EVER AGAIN.There is something inexplicable about his writing, which grips the reader from the beginning till the end, keeps the reader intrigued, letting them feel every single emotion. And how [...]

It has been an engrossing and entertaining read throughout the time i had this book.The book can be described as a true novel with mixed feelings and emotions throughout and as the title aptly describes, a sequence of events(adventures would be better) and feelings and their change with time.Its worthy of the time you spentA problem i had noticed was that each character had a flashback to him/her and it becomes difficult to match the characters with their flashblack as the story progresses and i [...]

Damn did I love this book or what. The four nuns were the best characters each with a different catchy story. Each finding love, each having the most not to expect ending. Each becoming a nun not by choice. The story of their lives, Lucia daughter of Mafia boss came to the nun to hide, Megan abandon in Italy as an American baby, Teresia, became a nun to run away from a heartbreaking home, Graciela, the beauty of them all who remained married to the church after all the drama.

Another Sidney Sheldon book with strong heroines and huge plots. Once again, Sidney Sheldon shows his attitude of money-and-power-can-buy-anyone-or-anything. I was kinda surprised reading the blurb when I came to know that the heroines are nuns. The freedom fighting, terrorists and spies make the book all the more interesting and spicy. Well, there were few gross, filthy parts (every book of his has some!) that I hated. The prose was kinda bland too but somehow added glamour to the thriller. I l [...]

Warning: Once you start you cannot stop, seriously. You have to make sure you're not in the middle of something (especially cooking, or in my case studying for exams). This is the very definition of page-turner brought to you by the master story teller himself.This is one of the best of Sidney Sheldon (the other one is The Master of the Game)! I finished it in one sitting, believe me. And it was midterms week, of all things! I think I went to bed at 4am back then. I didn't regret it though, my e [...]

Started this book with lot of expectations as the author Sindney Sheldon has a huge fan following in India and it was my debut read of his books. Opening scene was the only highlight of the book. Rest of the incidents that took place were merely coincidental with lots of loopholes in the plot. Author's writing was very straightforward and too boring which makes the story less interesting. Not sure if I will pick his other works or not
