I was expecting a huge 'WOW! It rather felt anticlimactic and the lack of impact in the writing made the ending even more underwhelming at least for me.

All in all, I did enjoy reading this book. I was enthralled and charmed by his prowess in story-telling seriously, the plot itself is turny-twisty. Believe me , but it seems that my biggest issue with this book is a bit lackluster writing. This most certainly won't be my last Sidney Sheldon, I am willing to read some more by him, but I must say this book didn't necessarily live up to my expectations.

I gave this book 3. Nov 05, Eric rated it it was amazing. Well - a confession must be made, I find it embarrassing when some people frequently tell me nowadays that I have done well to review "many African books and writers Alas, this is patently untrue!

It would shock such people to learn that over the years, most - actually like over 80 percent! Why I might focus on reviewing African works is simple: I r Well - a confession must be made, I find it embarrassing when some people frequently tell me nowadays that I have done well to review "many African books and writers I reckon that the western world already has a throbbing surfeit of readers, critics, studies on their literary protagonists, which is not the case for most African works!

So why should I review eurocentric works? Also, why this preamble? After just re-reading this book, Master of the Game, I realised how much I love d the Sidney Sheldon novels, and how I read the whole series again and again in the recent past.

If only I could do the same with African works! Anyway, Master of the Game is Sidney Sheldon at his best, featuring what he does best - a very powerful, alluring, larger-than-life woman Kate Blackwell who on the surface has it all.

Except that she doesn't. What she is obsessed with, especially as she gets older, is to have someone in the family to take charge of the mammoth monolithic Kruger-Brent company that she has sacrificed all her long life for.

Her own child, and grandchildren have disappointed her greatly in this wise, despite all her schemes and manipulations. And despite the fact that she is one of the richest and most powerful women in the world. This superb story spans a hundred years or so, starting with Jamie who initially suffers incredibly before building a dynasty of diamond fortune; then his remarkable daughter, Kate, takes over turning the company into a global conglomerate; Tony, her son is only really interested in being a painter, and his mother's manipulations to try to prod him into what he is not ends in disaster; Tony's own lovely daughters twins also disappoint Kate, with one of them Eve who seems best qualified to run the company apparently possessed with evil By the end of the novel Kate is 90, and Robert is only 8, and interested only in music.

But it is clear that even at her age Kate would still do all she can to ensure the boy takes over Kruger-Brent one day Is it a great book? Not really. Is it worth reading? Aren't only great books worth reading?

You say, I'm just All I know is that I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Master of the Game

This was my first Sidney Sheldon and this won't be my last. The story is of greed, lust, ambition, manipulation, revenge and big business that threads its way through 4 generations of a family. It starts with Jamie McGregor, who is lured to South Africa by the diamond rush and receives betrayal for his unmitigated hardwork. The lu Is it a great book?

The lust for revenge makes him build one of the biggest business empires the world will witness in the upcoming years.

His successor and daughter Kate is the actual ''Master of the Game''. God knows I've loved her and I've hated her - both at extremities.

This ambition and achievement oriented woman drove me crazy and how I adored her before she started toying with other people's lives to meet her ends. She pulls every string in his son's life to persuade him to get into the family business. After wrecking him emotionally and mentally, she starts eyeing her twin granddaughters- Eve and Alex to choose a worthy successor. Eve is the bitchiest character I've ever come across and her sister is oh-so-sweet whose virtues hinder her ability to make use of her brain - the standard smart and evil vs good and dumb scenario.

Coins flip, fates change, conspiracies are plotted and what we have in the end is one entertaining read. Yes, it's a pages long soap opera about a family and it doesn't bore you one bit.

Sidney is a genius. Such a crafty plot! It had so many twists and countless moments where I actually went - '' Oh my God!

What did just happen?! The flow of the book is liquid and a years of melodrama just sweep by without befogging you once. It has a lot of drama, predictable scenes, some over the top characters, plot holes and the story telling isn't erudite. Oh, this book has plenty of flaws but even all of them stacked up don't impede this book from being an enthralling page turner. Sep 30, Kaung Myat Han rated it it was ok. A close friend's stepfather insisted me to read this novel "Master of the Game" by Sidney Sheldon telling me that it was one of his all-time favorite novels.

He even felt obliged to lend me his copy. Well, what could I say? I looked at the paperback book and it's nearly pages long. I finished the book anyway. It is about four generations of McGregor family. So, it's more like an epic story. My only favorite part was the captivating story about Jamie McGregor's adventures and how he tried har A close friend's stepfather insisted me to read this novel "Master of the Game" by Sidney Sheldon telling me that it was one of his all-time favorite novels.

My only favorite part was the captivating story about Jamie McGregor's adventures and how he tried hard to gain wealth out of his cleverness. Kate Blackwell was hardly my favorite character.

She seemed to be inconsiderate, harsh and manipulative. All of them later turned out to be weak characters mentally. They're not as strong and ambitious as the previous characters. Lusty romances and sexual manipulations kicked in the triangle between the twin sisters and George Mellis at the later parts of the novel.

With insufficient character developments, this novel is at best mediocre to me sorry Sheldon fans and the ending's also a bit disappointing.

Not my cup of tea and I'm not quite so sure about reading his other books. View all 3 comments. Jan 07, Rolyn rated it liked it. It should have been 4 stars but as Kate said, "I am a woman. I have a right to change my mind. And please forgive me if you found my choice of words offensive.

I am quite nice in person. When Van der Merwe asked Jamie to sign a contract written in foreign language, I was suspicious. You can be duped even if a contract was in a language that you understand. And Jamie signing a contract with a stranger in a language that he doesn't understand was downright lunacy. Van der Merwe is a low-li It should have been 4 stars but as Kate said, "I am a woman.

Van der Merwe is a low-life, scumbag, sad excuse for a human being! How naive Jamie was. He didn't even get suspicious when Van der Merwe asked him to pay for the goods he gave him.

So I was a bit carried away. I liked the story. The characters were flawed. I understood why Jamie and Banda did what they did. As for Margaret , at first, I was irritated. But she did all she could so that her son would get what was duly his.

With Kate , I am so conflicted. I got that she did what she thought was best. But what she did to David , Tony and Marriane was just freaking selfish.

Especially to Tony. She, though unknowingly, destroyed him. She broke his spirit. Personally, I know how difficult it is to find something that you really like and somehow you have the talent to be successful in the field that you truly enjoyed.

And she screwed it up for Tony. So I was really pissed off with Kate. And I really wanted to break something when she thought that everybody in her family betrayed her. And then there was Eve. As per her grandmother Kate, Eve was a whore, deceitful, cunning and a psychopathic liar. I couldn't describe her more accurately than that. George and Eve both deserved what happened to them.

And lastly, Alexandra. All I could say was I wanted to break her pretty neck. This book is about ambition, betrayal and how far people would go just to achieve whatever it is that they wanted to achieve. Everyone asks what your favorite book is, but now if anyone ever asks what my least favorite is, I have an answer. Until today, I would have said I love all books! Just don't. There is not a likeable character in the book.

Okay, there's one, but he's a VERY minor character. Banda is a black man living in South Africa in the early part of the century, fighting for civil rights.

He was cool, I would have hung out with him. They're all manipulative, evil, conniving bitches.

This one fucks a girl to get back at the girls father and gets her pregnant and refuses to marry her, even though she loves him and had nothing to do with the original offense. That one ruins her only son's career as an artist to make him run their big global corporation and then convinces his wife to have children, even though it will kill her.

He finds out and shoots the old bitch, gets a lobotomy, and spends the rest of his life finger painting. One of those twins consistently tries to kill her sister from the time they're five.

A plastic surgeon ruins his wifes face because she's cuccolding him every day, but he blackmailed her to marry him in the first place.

There is one not evil character. She's stupid and clueless.

I would have put it down hours ago, but I just wanted to see how it would come out, hoping everyone would get what they deserved.

No one. I can see no point to this book. I hate it, and I'm selling it on e-bay to get it out of my house. Mixed feelings. Audiobook narrator needs improvement. The book is broken into four parts - the lives of different generations in the family.

He goes to South Africa to find diamonds. Kate does evil things and permanently harms her son Tony. The fourth part was about Eve and Alexandria - identical twins.

That was the most troubling. I was depressed reading this part Mixed feelings. I was depressed reading this part. Eve is an evil sociopath. She tries many times to kill her twin and harm others. She lies and is always believed. Too one-dimensional to be interesting. I did not like reading about Alexandria who was stupid because she never suspected Eve was trying to harm or lie to her.

And I want justice in the end. I was angry and depressed. Sexual content: Several sex scenes occur and a couple sadist-rape scenes occur but they are referred to, no details shown. Shannon Engemann does not know how to narrate. Narrative mode: The Murder House. James Patterson. Sandra Brown.
