    1. A Stranger in the Mirror, Sidney SheldonA Stranger in the Mirror is a 1976 novel written by Sidney Sheldon. The novel is one of the earliest Sheldon's works, but contains the typical Sheldon fast-paced narration and several narrative techniques with the exception of a twist ending. The novel tells the life story of two fictitious Hollywood celebrities - Toby Temple and Jill Castle (roman à clef on Sheldon's acquaintances Groucho Marx and Erin Fleming) portray the emotional extremes of success a [...]


    2. This was my first ever Sidney Sheldon book and I loved it. I literally could not put the book down. I slept at 11 pm for three nights and finished it then. The suspense really got me every night and the only thing that kept me from reading was that I knew that I needed to wake up early in the morning. Never has a book made me feel so much emotions in one time. I felt the passion, the hate, the love, and to be honest, I felt turned on (Blame it on my fourteen year old hormones) at the well-explai [...]


    3. ** spoiler alert ** I could give Sidney Sheldon's books 5 stars without even reading them because I know they're all gonna be great! "A Stranger in the Mirror" is another amazing story by this amazing author. I got really annoyed when I had to put it down. The story is absolutely breathtaking!It's about a boy "Toby" and a girl "Jill" who wanted to leave their hometowns to find fame in Hollywood. Terrible things happen to them along the way. The girl seeks revenge when she finally becomes an impo [...]


    4. “You don't know what can happen tomorrow. Life is like a novel, isn't it? It's filled with suspense. You never know what's going to happen until you turn the page.” ― Sidney SheldonA Stranger in the MirrorThe story presented a trashy look at Hollywood with an awesome twist in the tail. Good for easy reading in the rain~This book has a promising start and a successful ending. It haunted me just like any Sheldon books I have read. Another awesome novel, Sheldon.P.S.: There's too much explici [...]


    5. লাইফে প্রথম শিডনী শেলডনের বই পড়ি কাজিন রিচার থেকে নিয়ে। সেই ববই সম্পর্ক এ সে যা বলছিল সেটা এখন ও কানে বাজে। এই বই পড়তে গিয়ে মনে হল ওর কথাটা খুব একটা ভুল না। কাজিনের এপিক বানীটা ছিল "আর বলিস না ক [...]


    6. I didn’t quiet remember what I liked with this book except that I cried to the uber tragedy romantic ending scene.Yeah! Well I’m just 12 when I read it. And you probably are wondering why I read this kind of book at that early age.So I’ll give you the short version of why this book landed in my hand at the age of 12:Me: we have book report in English. Do you have novel books?Uncle: none. I’ll just get you one from my friendMe: Okay.[After few hours.]Uncle: here. [Gave me the book] it’s [...]


    7. I am in the process of re-reading my Sidney Sheldon book collection. I haven't read these books for many years and thought it would fun to go back try them again. I'd actually give this book somewhere between 2-3 stars. This book has just about everythingarting with poor humble beginnings to pride,greed,revenge,sex - a lot of sex,consequences of choices maded much more. I don't think this is one of Sheldon's better plots. It was interesting but didn't hold my interest for very long. It was very [...]


    8. Mr. Sheldon does it again! Another breathtaking story about love, betrayal, vengeance and murder. This is bit different than his other books but I really enjoyed it.Toby grew up with an idea that he was born to be famous. On the other hand, Jill grew up dreaming about being rich and beautiful. Soon, both realize that the only place that gives them what they want is Hollywood.Both of them have to struggle to reach to the top. The part that describes their struggle is really heart touching. They h [...]


    9. Ah, Sidney Sheldon, what can you say about him? His novels are trashy, full of unrealistic, rather silly plots, sex and situations and they are so un-putdownable that they might as well be made of crazy glue. In this one, two young aspiring performers have simultaneous stories. Toby Temple is a young comic with a boyish, innocent face but a mean streak a mile deep. Jill Castle has had to fight and claw to get any sort of career. This one gets three stars rather than just one because the story g [...]


    10. Sheldon enjoyed - that's just a saying, mind, I'm not sure he was even aware - a brief super fame in Sweden in the early 80's and his books were published in large, low-price hardbacks with fashion model covers that had nothing at all to do with the content. Unfortunately for me and my friends (who for the longest time thought he was a woman for some reason), this coincided with our early to mid teens and we devoured his sex-spiced outings. The story-lines were often 'shocking' (albeit simple, b [...]


    11. Well.s my 5th Sidney Sheldon book. I could not rate less than 5 stars in any of his books so far. Here, Toby Temple captures the title "the most funniest man in the world" though he passed through many loathsome folks in his path. On the other hand, Jill Castle who also had an ambition but partial talent, uses Toby to reach her heights. Selfish love, revenge, hatred, betraying were brought out in a marvelous way. The tale was really interesting that i was reading contiguously skipping my appetit [...]


    12. I actually read the version that is translated into the Russian language. The book is a good read, but it doesn't really get too interesting until the last few chapters. It seemed to drag on a bit, however it leaves you wanting to know what is going to happen and WHEN it will finally happen! All in all, it was alright.


    13. Enjoyable, entertaining, unputdownable and amazingly written. The title is intriguing. Characters were full of suspense. I enjoyed this book very much.


    14. I read this a while back. While the book is very well written, there was a depressing air to the entire book. Even now as I remember vividly the storyline, it feels me with sadness. Both the hero and heroine in the book went through so many horrible events in the book. I really do hope that Hollywood is better than how it is portrayed in the book.



    15. This story is about Toby Temple who is a superstar, the world's funniest man. He will make you laugh if you are an audience. He will make you go through a lot of emotions if you are reading his life story. Go for it.“But a comedian is naked. His only weapon was his wit.” ― A Stranger In The Mirror


    16. By Sidney Sheldon. Grade: CSidney Sheldon is time and time again pitted as one of the world’s all-time best fiction novelist. From being an author to a screen writer to a producer, Sidney Sheldon has done it all and then some more. A Stranger in the Mirror, a fiction suspense novel, is the third of his career.Toby Temple is a superstar, the world’s funniest man. He gets any woman that he wants, but under the superstar image is a lonely man. Jill Castle is a sensuous starlet. She has a dark a [...]


    17. Novel ini memakai setting tahun 1940-1960-an. Novel bercerita tentang Toby Temple, seorang anak laki-laki dari keluarga miskin yang lari ke New York untuk menghindari tanggung jawab karena menghamili teman sekelasnya sewaktu SMA. Toby yang mempunyai bakat menjadi pelawak kemudian berjuang keras untuk masuk ke dunia hiburan. Dengan rasa percaya diri, perjuangan keras, keberuntungan, bakat dan kepandaian berkomunikasi akhirnya dia mulai menapak menjadi artis yang mengorbit di level internasional. [...]


    18. A Stranger in the Mirror is a hard book to describe. The basic story is split in 2 for most of the book. Toby Temple begins the tale, he is a very famous and very successful actor/comedian in Hollywood. However the story starts with his early life. He left home very young as he had impregnated a girl at his school whose parents were looking for a shotgun wedding, so with his own mother's blessing he fled. He worked for many years trying to make it big and finally did. Meanwhile, we have Jill Cas [...]


    19. This is so different from Sheldon's books. And while we know this story will end in a tragic way, I had to complete it!It is compelling, intriguing, well-informed, and in the end, justified - for we sure don't want to have a negative feeling like "They got away"And Sheldon has taken care of that. I kept hoping things might get better, but I knew they wouldn't, for it's always a good thing that we remember where we came from, how great we growAnd the characters are strongly drawn out. We know the [...]


    20. This is a wonderful book which I would recommend to people of all ages. A girl has so many dreams for herself and with little help of the resourceful people, she could have achieved all her wishes and lived the life which she dreamed of. she works so hard, she perseveres , she sacrifices but alas the cruel world only uses her. She fights back and gives them back they deserve. But the end, however, still does not give her that satisfaction . Perhaps because, in life , love is the most important e [...]


    21. Esta obra estuvo tan fascinante que escribiré dos mensajes a públicos de diferentes áreasRA LECTORES: Es una historia muy bien desarrollada, la prosa de Sheldon es rica en detallar los sucesos. Te enamoras de los personajes y de cierta manera, el libro te hace sentir un famoso más en el mundo del espectáculoRA LOS QUE SE DEDICAN O QUIEREN DEDICAR AL MUNDO TEATRAL: Se sentirán identificados y tomarán consejos que Sidney nos presenta a lo largo del libro. Soñarás y te convertirás en un T [...]


    22. This is a remarkable book--my favorite of Sheldon's and probably his best (of the ones I've read--I've not read them all), and I think it shows that he's underrated as a novelist. His content tends to be shallow and materialistic and glitzy, which is typically not my favorite; however, beneath that in Sheldon's books, there is often so much well-plotted storytelling-cleverness that I can overlook any shallowness, like with this book.I'm not going to give away the most-excellent plot because I ha [...]


    23. Mixed feelings about this one, certainly. Familiar style, some sort of familiar events in most of his books yet manages to capture my attention time and time again. I weep for Jill and Toby. I pity the ambitious little girl, Josephine.There are so many rights and wrongs that sometimes one tends to get lose in them.You lose yourself as the darkness surrounds.but I couldn't say that this is my most fav from him. I didn't enjoy the central idea much.


    24. I read this one long agoI remember "If Tomorrow Comes" because of the "YES!" feeling I had at the endI remember this one because of the "yucky" feeling I had at the end. I obviously got involved with the characters, because I was almost depressed by the ending. Least favorite.




    25. Another phenomenonal work by Sidney Sheldon. This is my third Sheldon's novel and I found it thrilling. The best thing I liked about this novel was character build up of Jill Castle and Toby Temple. The characters were carefully sketched. One could have number of emotions for a single character as one reads the book. You could be angry, sympathetic, happy and sad for Jill. Toby could make you laugh and also make you feel pity for him. The entire environment of 'Hollywood', all the struggle it ta [...]


    26. yes I would stick to a 4 only, thought it came from the master story teller. This one has something missing in it when compared to his other works like Rage of angels or The Blood line. they are perfect 5 starse struggling part of the story was good but after that it all went flat. the book three could have been much better. but who am I to tell this, I'm not the master. Sidney is. may be after reading his would like sands of time or the two I mentioned above one would definitely expect mores bu [...]


    27. When I started, I didn't know what to expect. The only thing I knew was that a friend of mine is obsessed with Sidney Sheldon's writings. This is the first book I've read from this author. And I wasn't disappointed. Sidney Sheldon had a talent for story telling. Yes, the story kept me at the edge of my seat. Took me two days, almost three, to finish this. Which was good considering how hard I've been trying to finish other books lately. However, I wouldn't go as far as categorizing this as a thr [...]
