Preview — Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon
Rage of Angels (Large Print Edition)
A memorable, mesmerizing heroine
Jennifer brilliant, beautiful, an attorney on the way up until the Mafia's schemes win her the hatred of an implacable enemy and a love more destructive than hate.
A dangerous, dramatic world
The Dark Arena of organized crime and flashbulb lit courtrooms where ambitious prosecutors begin their climb to political power.
But from all the book he (I thought it was a she) wrote, this one and Sand of Times is my favourite.
This book is about Jennifer (see, I still remember her name though I don’t have the book), a young lawyer who entered her career in a positive manner and optimism in her blood. But then many things happen and many people came along the way, that change ...more
Upon getting book from library: I have read so many serious books lately. It'll be fun to read Sheldon again. I loved Hart to Hart. Cannot wait.
Page 20: another virginal brilliant ingenue heroine? Oh well, at least this one is a lawyer
page 31: well, that's actually a plausible setup for her losing her job with the DA's office
page 104: seriously, she did NOT just turn to the jury in the middle of arguing a rule of judiciary evidence to deliver a lengthy soliloquy ...more
Yeah, Sidney Sheldon was definitely better when I was 16. And by the way, I could have sworn he was a she. I cannot say I wasn't entertained though.
The story never gave a hint that it would be such a heart breaking novel at the beginning at all.I had guessed that the trouble that had began for Jeniffer at the start of the story will be overcomed by her and she would have a beautiful happy ending.
Boy was i in for a Shock.
Conclusion : Never take for grated the happy ending for a story and be ready to have you own heart broken in pieces over it.
I loved Jeniffer's character ,she had a ne ...more
This is another Sidney Sheldon novel that will take you off your seats, a real page-turner. A masterpiece. Another Phenomenon. If you remember his novel Nothing Lasts Forever where it revolves around an intelligent doctor, now, the Rage of Angels tells the story of a young brilliant lawyer and anything that goes around the courtrooms. Rage if Angels is filled with love, tragedy, and a woman with two men. One of them is a good (white) angel, another is a ...more

The story focuses on Jennifer, a young idealist lawyer from a small town who has moved to the big city to put away the bad guys. After a major, albeit innocent, mistake she is completely outcast from her prosecutor's office and struggles to stay in the city and become a top lawyer.
I don't want to spoil too much more then that. I had no idea what I was getting into when I read this one and enjoyed the ride. I will warn you that this is ...more
All you want when you read a book is already in this book. Sheldon was always successful to describe anything so clear and easy to understand/imagine.
He described crime like it is not as sinful as it sounds, he described justice like it's not just about law, he described sex and make me agree that sex has so many shadows, he described romance and make people like me think that romance can be sweet too, and he described family just as it is.
And he des ...more
Speaking about this book, it is one of the books which took me along with its script!! The narration by Sheldon was as awesome as usual!! It gives u an unexplainable thrill and the way it was maintained through out the plot is praiseworthy!!
Plot begins slowly gains its pace n never looks back!! Its a perfect amalgamation of thriller, romance and fiction!! No o ...more
Jessica Parker had been a lawyer all her life. Even before she became a lawyer, her dad seemed to have instilled in her qualities that made it seem obvious that she would become a lawyer. This story woven intricately by Sidney Sheldon describes her staggered lifestyle, varying between extreme conditions of happiness and sorrow; and one cannot help but revel in her joy and empathize with her during her times of grief.
The woman cared not for money or for the luxury that came ...more
Jennifer's life is dominated by two men.....the protagonist is romantically torn between a famous politician, Adam Warner, on the way to Senator elections,who had helped her rise again from her law firm trauma and a Mafia boss, ...more
Michael Moretti had so many faults that they were uncountable but he made the book come alive.He and Jennifer were a nice power couple,though twisted what with him being a criminal and married...
Notwithstanding all the negative feelings I had for all the ch ...more
I loved (and still love) The Rage of Angels because of Jeniffer Parker. She is so woman: ...more
Jennifer Parker passed the New York Bar Exam the first time. From there, it was going to be all good. She had a job working for the NY District Attorney, Robert Di Silva, and the idealistic outlook of a go-getter young lawyer. And then, suddenly, it ap ...more
I'm a fan of Sidney Sheldon's work, and I'm an especially big fan of any of his heroines who are smart and clever. One of my all-time favorite books from my childhood is his book If Tomorrow Comes because the heroine, despite being beset by all kinds of bad breaks from bad guys, overcomes it all through cleverness and quick thinking, without being afraid to use her beauty, her unique skills, and her background to advantage.
Rage of Angels is a little bit like that book, excep ...more
But as I want to analyse it, I would like to compare his novel with some other eminent writers:
1.Style: I found style more or less like Dan Brown and Jeffery Archer, the former's way on emphasizing on information and facts with short chapters and interesting plot and the later's ways to play with all types human emotions
2.Plot: The plot is important aspect, the story line ...more
Flimsy storytelling. Weak vocabulary. High on style but low on substance.
Still frothy and fun. And he does manage to squeeze some pathos out of some very uninspired writing. I read a chunk of this with some vodka last night and a heart string or two we ...more
It inspires the readers. Also,Sheldon has provided a strong contrast between Adam and Michael, the two important men in Jennifer's life that even the readers find it hard to ...more
