The Stars Shine Down by Sidney Sheldon

My Review: 3/5


I am really confused about whether I liked this book or not. One point, it is like a biography of a famous person, on the other side, it is like an inspirational book but at the end, it’s a fictional with lots of twists by Sidney Sheldon. Sometime, the story is quite slow but it is easy to follow. Whatever the story may turn into, the ending was good though. 

It is a story of a very ambitious woman: Lara Cameron. Coming from a poor family, she has a dream to become rich and conquer the world under her name. She is shown like a wonder woman. Her continuous rise to the top was very inspiring but too much detail about small things made it quite boring sometimes. Her love life was interesting and the way author highlighted the problem that can come into when two ambitious people from different fields come together was very interesting and realistic. Overall, the book was okish. Once in a while, I involuntarily put myself in her shoes and actually, I would love to see myself as ambitious and courageous as her.

Looking at positive side, if reading other people’s story inspires you, this book is for you.
