Four sisters, a Manhattan brownstone, and a tumultuous year of loss and courage are at the heart of Danielle Steel’s new novel about a remarkable family, a stunning tragedy—and what happens when four very different young women come together under one very lively roof.

Candy–it’s the only name she needs—is blazing her way through Paris, New York, and Tokyo as fashion’s late

My kid bought me this book for Valentines Day. Since he's five, we won't really judge him on his lack of literary tastes. Yet. Give him a few years.

Sentimentally, I read it. And then I hated it. Her writing seems to be aimed at the barely literate. She uses small words. Short sentences and repeats things over and over. Then again. And again, just to make sure the point was made.

This book. It made me feel less intelligent, just for having read it.

Awful, couldn't finish.

The characters were "too perfect," and the father absolutely pathetic when he doesn't visit his daughter in the hospital because it's just "too hard." If I could talk to the book I'd tell the girls to get over themselves and to the dad to grow a pair.

Doesn't even deserve one star.

The reader can almost predict what they will read when you choose a Danielle Steel book. Sisters is about the relationship of four sisters who overcome tremendous loss. The reader knows all will evolve into a happy ever after ending. I did like how the author wove the story together to make it realistic. I also liked the sisters and their bond. 4 stars for this easy, summer read.

First of all did anybody else notice all the errors in this book? There were so many contradictions which irritate me to the core! First she says tammy's hair is red like her mothers only curly, then when the sisters are dividing up their mother's clothes Annie puts on a cashmere sweater and looks so beautiful, of course, and just like her mother who "has the same color hair", yet Annies hair is a chestnut. Then when she is describing Tammue's home in the beginning she says that tammy is just to ...more

This is the second book I have read by Steel - well, nearly read, seeing as I couldn't finish it. The first one - Coming Out - was bad. Very bad. But I thought everyone deserves a second chance, and tried this novel. What a mistake that was.
While yes, the accident did bring a small tear to my eye, it soon became pretty apparent that there was no use in crying over this book, as it is completely unrealistic. The sister goes blind - a tragedy yes, but it's amazing how the metal pipes that cause

I love the way the book opens for you. There are four sisters in the book and the first four chapters are dedicated to introducing you to them and their current lives. Sabrina(a successful lawyer in Manhattan), Tammy (a successful t.v. producer in Hollywood) , Annie (an aspiring artist living in Florence, Italy), and Candy (a globe-hopping supermodel). Their family ties are very strong and always drop their own lives to celebrate family holidays together with their parents in Conneticut.

They al

The best part about this book is how awful it is. Hilarious! My favorite part is when the artist sister gets in a car accident, which does no damage to her pretty face or green eyes on the outside, but the doctor can see on the X-ray that her brain is like totally broken and she is going to be blind forever. Oh, and she will have extra brain damage if they don't operate. Immediately. "Oh no!" her sisters think. One says, "She would totally hate that." (She meant about being brain-damaged.) <- ...more

I am not a huge Danielle Steel fan but this book's title, "Sisters" and blurb on the back caught my eye (I am one of three girls so ya, I have sisters). Interestingly enough, I didn't completely hate it. It had the makings of a good story. However, there were some serious turnoffs about it. The major one being the author's characters are almost, in a sense, overcooked. For me, I prefer to have the characters remain a bit pink so they retain some flavor! I, also like to develop my own opinion of ...more

2.5

Razočarenje. U suštini dobro osmišljena radnja ali slabo razrađena. Previše patetičnih opisa svakodnevnice bez bilo kakve dinamike osim u prvih 50ak strana. Noviji roman ove spisateljice, 2007.godina kada joj je, očito, ponestajalo ideja...

Since 1981, Ms. Steel has been a permanent fixture on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestseller lists. In 1989, she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having at least one of her books on the Times bestseller list for 381 consecutive weeks. But Guinness was premature. The fact is that one or more of Ms. Steel's novels have been on the New York Times bestseller list for ...more
