  • Description

    Master Of The Game by Sidney Sheldon takes readers on a gripping journey through the trials and tribulations of the Blackwell/MacGregor family set against a thrilling canvas of hate, wealth, lust, crime and greed.

    Summary Of The Book

    Master of The Game revolves around the MacGregor/Blackwell family and Kate Blackwell in particular. Kate is one of the richest and most powerful women in the world. The story starts with her ninetieth birthday celebration which is attended by other powerful people and dignitaries. She is hugely enigmatic with innumerable mysteries surrounding her. Her father earned riches beyond his imagination a long time back as a diamond prospector. Her mother, on the other hand, was born to a sly Afrikaner merchant. Her birthday celebrations see participation and toasts from prominent people like a judge of the Supreme Court. The White House also sends a telegram. The old lady herself sees the specters of long gone friends and enemies surround her on her birthday.

    Master Of The Game takes readers on a thrilling ride of suspense, ambition, murder, blackmail, lust, vengeance, hate, wealth and power. Born out of vengeance, Kate recounts these absent supernatural beings, all part of her empire. There are umpteen twists in the plot to keep the audience guessing till the very end. Sidney Sheldon is one of the masters of this genre and this story is one of his best works and is guaranteed to keep readers hooked till the last page.

    Master Of The Game reached the top position on the New York Times Bestseller List and remained entrenched for eleven weeks. It also became the United States’ fourth best selling novel for the year 1982. It was also picked up by The Literary Guild as a Main Selection. Rosemont Productions International Ltd. and CBS Television made it into an acclaimed mini series on television which even received an Emmy nomination.

    Master of the Game, a gripping and thrilling read.

    This book is too good to mention it in a short summary. It was suggested by one of my friend, the initial knock started with that thrilled adventure and eventually it engrossed me in such a way I did finish it within a week. Author had successfully portrayed all the characters exquisitely.
    Just few words who till haven't read this one, "Go for it.......

    What about writing sytle!

    Do you find sidny sheldon's work a 'pulp fiction'?
    the plots of his work are great, but they got no literary value
    just kind of any movie's script, that's it! Master of the game and other are just for time pass and fun, isn't it?

    For Sidney Lovers...... ONLY

    The book starts with an emotional description of misfortunes and hardships faced (perhaps the success sentiment of Sidney Sheldon from my experience of him from reading Rage of Angels) by Jamie Mc. Gregor. The book boasts of the family line of a Ninety year old wealthy 'Master of Game' named Kate Blackwell as the lead, but other characters are equally or may be have higher importance in the story line. The events associated with several characters of the book are loosely connected and one may...

    Prolific Novel

    One of the best novel i have read. The way sidney sheldon has described the whole story cannot be described in words. This is the very first novel of sidney sheldon i have completed and it took me about 1 month but really worth the money. every page i turned was a suspense. No Second thoughts, Go for it straight Away.
