I know this is just a book. That they are just fictional characters but I was freaking glad that I pegged all three of them correctly. Even if what I was reading at a certain moment contradicted with what I thought their characters were, I stood by my assumptions.

As I turned away from my boyfriend's supple arms, I took a book I had read over a million times, with its dog-eared pages and put it aside. And picked another book I decided to reread, Windmills of the Gods, which I had last read in Having taken 7 years to revisit the book, I thought it would be nice to traverse the We are all victims Anselmo, Our destinies are decided by a cosmic roll of the dice by the winds of the stars the vagrant breezes of fortune that blow from the windmills of the gods.
Having taken 7 years to revisit the book, I thought it would be nice to traverse the course of finding these windmills of these gods.
However, there were no windmills. And there were no gods. What happened was lots of suspenseful narration about the American ambassador to Romania. There were some assassins, a freedom fighter, some guns, some explosions and some more guns.
I enjoyed the hell out of the thrill ride.
Windmills of the gods
But upon turning the last page, when I realised that there were no gods I simply put the book away to join the dog-eared library and wondered why they didn't at least add some windmills. Jul 05, Henry Ozogula rated it really liked it. Another gripping work by Sheldon of course. For me the character of Angel the international assassin remains intriguing, if not quite convincing in the end.
It is some sort of masterstroke that the author ensures throughout this work that the reader would imagine that both Angel and Neusa are the same. One eg assumes that Angel would be a man, not a woman. The author writes - a fine sleight of hand really - "First Angel had some shopping to do.
There was a good lingerie shop on Pueyrredon, expen Another gripping work by Sheldon of course. There was a good lingerie shop on Pueyrredon, expensive, but Neusa deserved the best".
How would the reader suss out here that Angel was actually referring to himself Yet from a critical point of view, the concept does not ring true. Neusa is presented as a very unattractive, illiterate dithering, quite foolish individual; yet in reality she is sophisticated, canny, quite a genius.
So maybe we should assume again that she is the greatest actress the World has ever seen with what she pulls off! Mary Ashley, the real female protagonist of this work finds herself trapped in a diabolic international plot… which sees those she believes are very much on her side propelling her towards a terrible fate.
But at least the ruthless 'Controller' in the end is not only decapitated, but has his eyes torn out…hmmm…. Jun 05, Salymar rated it it was amazing Shelves: Anyway, setting that emotion and the feeling that my mind-has-been-"Sheldonized" aside hahaha. Windmills of the Gods is a thriller novel written by my all-time favorite American writer shall I say his name uh-gain?
Sidney Sheldon. I think Sheldon defied the laws approvingly in writing this book!
Back from the end of World War II in until the end of the Cold War in , Iron Curtain was utilized to separate the ideological conflict and physical boundary dividing Europe, hence, the democratic sphere and the communist sphere was thoroughly divided.
Windmills of the Gods, on the other hand, is a story under the "Iron Curtain days" where the utmost concern of the United States to Eastern Europe bloc particularly in Romania was fictionally discussed. And damn it was overly intriguing, heart-thrilling and mind-boggling! The first situation that appealed me is when Sheldon introduced a beautiful and accomplished scholar who has suddenly became the newest United States ambassador to an Iron Curtain country, a woman who is about to dramatically change the course of world events.
Imagine how her pretty face could survive on the glinting edge of East-West confrontation. Every chapter is exceptionally impressive. Exceptionally and excessively impressive. This novel grabbed me with all its all-sort of cliff-hangers, hooks and everything that come with it and finished read it in just one-sitting.

This book felt so different from the other books he had written. I mean different. Like isolated LOL. Anyway teh plot is great!
I was waiting fo This is actually my favorite SS book. I was waiting for them to kiss or hold hands but they never did; it was almost I love the man forgot the name, i tend not to remember the chars name after reading a book , the dark and sexy aura he has, and it was described in a magnificent way; like your watching him yourself, like you can touch him and talk to him.
The girl wasnt my fave heroine but i did care about her. The story is intense, i finished it in a just a few hours. The way SS write his books are always as smooth as a silk and seemed so effortless.
He writes with such simpleness that makes you think he has written the book in just a few weeks, published it then viola made millions of dollors, thats how smooth and well-woven it is. Dec 13, Kristin rated it it was amazing. I have never liked Sidney Sheldon before. But after reading his novels consecutively, i learned to appreciate his works at full blast. He's an easy to understand writer. No highfalutin words, no overdescriptions, just fitted for an average reader.
Likewise, i loved how he connected his stories. At the end of every work he made, i learned to love this author: View all 5 comments. Mar 23, Anika Zaman rated it it was amazing. This is the first Sidney Sheldon book I ever read and I simply loved it. I found the characters very dimensional and they grew through out the story. I enjoyed every minute that I was reading and was in a moment of awe after finishing it.
It is definitely one of my most favorite books of all time! Jan 11, Mayush Shrestha rated it really liked it. This is one hell of a book. Like damn you. I started this book 3 years back and stopped in 4th page. After all these I came back on it and surprise surprise. What twist, marvellous plot. My eyebrows are still raised. Did I just read it? Even with the 4 star rating I gave. This book is just delicious. Pretty much predictable.
Apr 18, Mohammed M. Sheikh rated it really liked it Shelves: Marie Ashley a beautiful young lady, teacher of the Cansas state University. New USA president wants to improve relationship with the communist countries. When Marie ashley's column catches the presidents eyes, He immediately knows that she would the perfect candidate for his People to People program to improve the relationship between the USA and communist nations.
So he decides to nominate Marie Ashley as the ambassador of the Romania. As Marie starts her job in Romania she finds that she isn't liked by many for colleague and she has also got some powerful enemies who wants erase her for good. Not the best work of Sidney Sheldon but still this book offers much to the thriller lovers. It was amazing. Nov 17, Shivam rated it really liked it. Not only does he take you around the world, painting vivid pictures of the cities duly mentioned, but also provides the readers with informative political scenarios, coupled with 'his' fair share of crime and drama.
The Writer cleverly enmeshes the opaque "political underworld" to the glim picture he paints of the apprehensions of the communist countries, towards the United States, and vice versa. The workings of a diplomat have been put in with incredible care and in great detail And the tenacious, amiable, and homely nature of the protagonist is certain to win you over.
Each of the characters have been sketched with utmost ambiguity and ONE amongst them, in particular, is certain to knock you off your feet!
The book overall may not possibly touch you emotionally which i do not think it intended to , but will leave you highly satisfied and with a smile on your face! Keeping in mind the amount of declassified information available today, and the number of clandestine operations the governments of the modern world are involved in, Sidney Sheldon and this book remain all the more relevant.

Frequently bought together
There's only a few writers who can bring it on; and Sidney Sheldon is one worth to get such prestige. Mar 01, Sheila rated it it was ok Shelves: This shortish novel was a pretty speedy easy read.
The plot was Ok in parts but other partts just did not ring true - I just cannot imagine that an American Ambassador to Communist Rumania would have been allowed to walk unescorted through the streets of Bucharest, surely sercet service agents would have been close by.
Consequently the whole premis of the staged abduction was flawed. I liked the complexity of people involved the secret society manipulating things behind the scene, and its contin This shortish novel was a pretty speedy easy read. I liked the complexity of people involved the secret society manipulating things behind the scene, and its continuation even after its fall.
I thought that worked well and was the novel was quite ambitious in this plot aspect as it meant so many different threads and different people contributing a little regularly to advancing the storyline.
The characters in this book are compelling and keep you on your toes. One thing I didn't like about this book though, is it seemed to constantly jump all over the place.
Not that it was hard to keep track of everything though. I was quite surprised at the end when Mike turned out to be the good guy! That caught me completely off guard. I was truly hoping Stanton would be the man he had been portrayed as, also, but that wasn't the case, either!
Everyone in this book wasn't who they seemed to be! I The characters in this book are compelling and keep you on your toes. I enjoyed it though. Anyone who is a Sheldon fan should definitely add this one to their collection. Jul 27, Adrian rated it really liked it. Mar 13, Pankaj Nandal rated it it was amazing. You simply cannot put down the novel. Jun 15, Jim Foster rated it did not like it. This was the worst book I have read in my entire life. Overwritten, full of unnecessary junk, and rather predictable.
Wasn't the maestro's one of the worthier efforts, truly. Oct 10, Jenny Hilborne rated it really liked it. Ashley has never left Kansas City and plenty of high-level political figures are understandably against the ambassadorship. The appointment of Mary Ashley is questionable and sets the reader up to expect some hefty shenanigans.

The beginning of the novel is exciting.Neusa is presented as a very unattractive, illiterate dithering, quite foolish individual; yet in reality she is sophisticated, canny, quite a genius. But the story, as a whole, was good. Mary initially declines the post, but after her husband dies in a suspicious car crash, she warily accepts Ellison's offer in an attempt to quell her overwhelming grief.
