u can go with the list as u have written.

If Tomorrow Comes - best works of Sidney, but with the all time fav. plot (loss of innocence, take revenge.. kinda' stuff.. peppy girls type) but exciting.

The Brethren is not that great,
I still haven't finished 'love* cholera', so Brethren comes a first choice before it ;-)

ps. romba vetti'a iruntha en kelkiku padhil solliyirukkalam :-(

If tomorrow comes is the best Sydney Sheldon novel I had read so far. Most of his novels will be like Tamil movies,i.e, u can guess the villain by 30th page.

but this one is very different

amma idhu yellam enna. annanda vigatan, kumadham , kalkandu maathri puthagangalaaa enna...

I am zero in that part....

Beautiful Mind said...

Hey..go for "Godfather" thats the best book..I have read many times..You would admire the Don after read it.
If tommorrow comes is typical book of Sidney..
dont know about Love Cholera :)

So my order
1
2
3 or 4 (No Comments)

KD said...

What? You have not read God Father yet??? Read that right away. Then I suggest Gabriel Garcia's. Div, youv'e not read some novel that I have ;-)

Vivek said...

hey
guess u mus hve started readin sth by now...i do suggest u start off wit Godfather..its lyk the bible for mafia n gangster books...:) As everybody has already told u, IF tomo comes is te best sidney work...I don lyk John Grisham much since his stories r all te same:"te firm aint wat it luks lyk"...marquez impressed me in One hundred years of solitude....newayz go for Godfather

Vivek said...

Btw tis is Me A Rebel aka Vivekanand from NIT-C....plz do note the disp name change :)

Ramesh Nair said...

Live in the time of Cholera... of course...

Bhavna Neel said...

kiraN said...

Godfather - :)

kuttichuvaru said...

i wud say godfather!!

P.R.A.D said...

hi fellow Coimbatorean !! First time in ur blog !!

By da way, Love In The Time Of Cholera would be my choice. GodFather has an awful climax.. Rajinikanth Movie maadhiri irukum.. One man heroism and verum masala !!

Arun [The One] said...

I'd go with the popular opinion about reading god father first..

U ll simply love this stuff provided u haven't seen the movie b4 and u dont know the plot or the story..even otherwise it is a good read.. u ll be captivated with the italian famiy...

i dont know much about Cholera.. heard much but havent read it.. so not much to comment on it..

but id suggest a small change in ur order.. read brethren b4 sheldon... it will give u a difference between reads...

if trow comes is a regular sheldon stuff.. same plot.. locale and environ's differ.. same old story in a different place.. that s all...

and can u send me "love...cholera" by email... i ll send u a mail rite away..
