A DISILLUSIONED WOMAN. Jill Castle came to Hollywood to be a star and discovered she had to buy her way with her body.
A WORLD OF PREDATORS. Here they are bound to each other by a love so ruthless, so strong, it is more than human and less...
Toby Temple hailed from a humb...more
Sidney 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 and m...more
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...more
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 grow...
And the characters are strongly drawn out. We kn...more
tahun 1976!! Buku ini luar biasa bagus, asal tahu saja ya, aku menemukan buku ini di sebuah pasar loak yang penjualnya memperlakukan buku2 dagangannya seperti setumpukan koran bekas :( warnanya telah menguning dimakan usia, bahkan bentuk bukunya sudah melengkung dan tidak simetris lagi. Sayang sekaliii :(
Ini kisah hidup sepasang manusia yang merangkak dari bawah demi mencapai impiannya masuk ke dalam ranah perfilman Hollywo...more
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 stor...more
"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...more
Toby Temple was the epitome of Hollywood Elite. Jill Castle would do just about anything to escape from her small, but humiliating life back in Odessa, Texas and become a Hollywood Starlit. When these...more
The characters play with emotions like love, hatred, joy, sadness and the beauty of a pop star life, but with two different visions: Toby Temple's and Josephine Czinki's visions.
I'd actually give this book somewhere between 2-3 stars. This book has just about everything...starting with poor humble beginnings to pride,greed,revenge,sex - a lot of sex,consequences of choices made....and 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. I...more
the man is madly in love with her and do anything for her with his power as the most paid celebrity in town. even he grants her wish to fire his manager.
the ending is unpredictable just like many of Sheldon stories. in the end th...more
It begins with two stories, one of Toby Temple who wants desperatley to be a big time comedian, and the other of Josephine "Jill" who runs to hollywood to get away from her past and make something of herself. These characters are potentially likable. Cut to book two where their stories collide. They each become disgusting caricatures of their formal self just to "be somebody" in showbusiness. It has an inte...more
that he wants, but under the superstar image is a lonely man.
Jill Castle is a sensuous starlet. She has a dark and mysterious past and has an ambition even greater than Toby's.
Together they rule Hollywood.
I don't know, I think the story is lacking mystery as what I think should be in any Sidney Sheldon books. Well, unless the little bit in the end.
The whole book mostly tells about Toby and Jill career, a little insight about...more

A Stranger in the Mirror
The 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 explicit cont...more

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 friend
[After few hours.]
Uncle: here. [Gave me the book] it’s the only...more
It`s a story wound around some characters which we can't decide whether they are Black or White or Grey. Throughout the pages you will switch your support from one character to the other and at the end Sheldon will deliver an ending which we all wanted but never expected. So I can recommend anyone to read this book.
i never wonder if i will falling in love with this book.
toby is the stronger women, she have a lot of fans and she must give her body to take her glory. . .
this book have a lot of romance, sacrifice, and very real. . .
