“It would be a box office hit if it was ever made into a Hollywood movie!”
A true masterpiece from the master story teller Sidney Sheldon. I bet many book lovers would have this one in their favorite list. and its the most famous book by Sheldon. Also this one occupies the top 1 , listed terms of reader base. This is my third read of Sidney , first being Doomsday Conspiracy and the second Tell me your dreams. Undoubtedly If tomorrow comes is my new favorite of Sheldon. I have aplenty reasons to like this book and an iota amount of dislike though. This wasn’t at all boring , like the other two mentioned books. It moved at a steady pace and never my guess was correct in this fateful story of Tracy Whitney.
One thing I loved about Sidney Sheldon is that , he establishes the characters firmly to the story line (that is far different even from the imagination) so that you wouldn’t stop admiring them. Such are the characters of Tracy Whitney , Jeff Stevens , Ernestine , Cooper , Reynolds, and so on… Perhaps he makes oneself keep betting to guess what’s next exciting thing going to happen in the story.
What a huge difference between the lady at the beginning of the story fearing What if tomorrow comes and the same lady at the end cheerfully dreaming about happiness awaiting which tomorrow brings in. Its all her destiny. The transformation of the innocent lady into a powerful , witty , clever and the best con player is very convincing and acceptable. Every episode leaves you no time for guessing and keeps engaged to enjoy the twists in the story. Hardly one could anticipate what’s in the store from the story teller. Tracy’s tryst with Stevens, their mutual love episodes all are too good.Their friction in every aspect amuses the reader and makes the book furthermore readable.
If tomorrow comes is a true page turner, fast–paced story that fills you with several kinds of emotions and overall a very good read.
