    Srpski prevod nema materijalne i logičke greške koje je imao original :) Šeldon je bio već u dubokoj starosti kad je pisao ovaj roman Istraživanja za knjige mu je radio neki asistent koji se nije baš proslavio a kako se radnja dešava na našim prostorima, i kako je Šeldon na Balkanu omiljen autor nisam mogla da dopustim da razočara svoje verne čitaoce :)

    I'm a Sheldon fan. His books usually make quick reading and are entertaining. He is not one for deep, haunting tales but it snags me everytime the way he can spin almost any story and make me stay up reading it. However, for this one, he seems to have lost quite a bit of his spinning abilities.There was the usual twist where things don't end up how you would expect. I was mildly surprised with this one but the problem was, it wasn't an "Ah! I've figured it out" moment. I was more like, "are you [...]

    Wait, what? 2 stars?Yes I know, I know. I couldn't believe it myself. I mean I HEART Sydney Sheldon but this book was annoying. I saw the plot twist coming, there was absolutely no action until three fourths of the book and I thought the characters were CREEPY!but I didn't give up hope. I went on and on, looking for the revenge, for something unexpected but I just grew sadder and tired. At the end I just wanted to stare into nothingness, wait, then I have to read the book again, it had NOTHING! [...]

    I found the first few pages of this book so interesting that I read it through at once. I thought the theme of the novel was about revenge - "Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned" and all that. But halfway towards the end, the plot got so convoluted it might as well be a soap opera in text form. The heroine turned into the villain of the story and a new heroine was introduced. The evil Senator Davis and President Russell (who's not really evil but just a jerk of the highest order) came out uns [...]

    Love and betrayal linked in the world of politics.Written by the master of deceit, Sidney Sheldon <3Sidney Sheldon's "The Best Laid Plans" intrigues from the very beginning and compels the reader to continue reading until the last page (Message to the future readers of Sheldon's novels: Forget about peeing! It ain't going to happen until you finish this in just one sit)OSM SHELDON.

    Added 4/25/15. First published in 1997.Well written. Excellent plot development. Written with amazing clarity, despite the large number of characters and the many shifts in time and place. Easy to read. A page-turner!The plot concerns the machinations of politicians for power and the role of the media. There's even some romance, such as it is.

    Not Sheldon's worst, but certainly not his best. There's a little too much going on here that felt irrelevant. Nonetheless, a page-turning read, ideal for the beach.

    What I like about Sidney Sheldon books is that the female protagonist always (well most of the time) looks back in their life and think about how and what went wrong, that led them to this state of destruction. At least, the books I've read till now, are based on this statement. Isn't that fun to see a character in complete puzzlement and to find yourself perplexed too thinking and asking the questions as them?What I don't like about Sidney Sheldon books is that when the female protagonist is ge [...]

    A wore out political assistant stops just before a decision - yet is compelled to run a sad crusade in transit out. He makes an arrangement with a dried up old Scot, Angus McLintock- - a designing educator who will do anything, anything, to abstain from instructing English to engineers- - to give his name a chance to remain in the race. No compelling reason to crusade, sure to lose, et cetera. At that point an awesome outrage overwhelms his rival, and sadly, Angus is chosen. He chooses to percei [...]

Oliver promising to Leslie that he will marry her. But because of Senator Todd Davis's greedy words(marry my daughter and I will make yo [...]

    Another delicious revenge/love/backstabbing story. Leslie's character's ending is so appropriate and I was surprised to find out who was responsible for Chloe's death.

    The Writer
    I’m still having Sidney Sheldon marathon, folks and this is the third book I have read in the past three days. Yep, you got that right, I read one book a day, nothing difficult with this one as Mr. Sheldon’s works are quite “light and entertaining”.How can I start with “The Best Laid plans”? Before I picked it up this morning, I only remember that I have read it once and I thought it was awesome, but that was me – 15 years ago perhaps and I’m sure that I have changed a lot since [...]

    Leslie and Stewart, had it good. she was on the top of her game, young, beautiful, intelligent and the number one in public relations field. He was handsome, charismatic and have a lot of potential. They were in love, engaged to be married in a few days until Oliver got a call from his former girlfriend, Senator father.Todd, promised him money and power but he has to marry his daughter. Oliver was sure he would not do it but the Senator's word echoed in his mind and left Leslie to be humiliated. [...]

    Sheldon is an well-known international bestseller writer and in this book he just wrote like a cheap newborn writer. He spend writing more than 50 pages on a minor character! when I was reading the last final pages,then I discovered that particular minor character has not a slightest impact on the story. Then why the hell Sheldon filled the pages just for nothing? to make it a fat,big book? who knows! Besides, I expected the main female protagonist will take her revenge. Here also Sheldon has do [...]

    as it usually is with Sheldon, I finished the book in one day!! mind blowing as usualOliver Russell kind of reminds me of Obama; charming, well-meaning and absolutely useless!the part about the Arab king and the peace treaty is my least favorite of courseI found it stupid which is a shame cuz Sheldon doesn't do stupid.I cried when Kamel cried in the van. which by the way reminds me of how infuriating the whole it's-nobody's-yet-everybody's-fault explanation Sheldon appointed to both mentioned wa [...]

    Read it in a handful visits to the toilet at my parents' house. This is the first book by Sheldon I've completed and probably the last. The writing technique is basic and unskilled. The characters are flat and uninteresting. An example: the omniscient narrator tells us the main character, Leslie Stewart, is very intelligent. He repeats it about three times over the first pages instead of showing it via the character's actions of AT LEAST making other characters say it. The ending is very predict [...]

    I liked this story until its less than fulfilling ending that left things unresolved for me. 6 of 10 stars

    What a gripping story!! u can see Mreldon's trademark twists and turns!! didnt feel boring through out the book!!

    Ros
    A half-heartened mixture of Sheldon's previous works. A familiar plot: intelligent, attractive woman takes revenge against the disarmingly charming and speciously sincere man, who doesn't hesitate to throw away love for ambition. A guaranteed page-turner. I was excited, I read the whole book in one sitting. However, there are a lot that are missing. Compared to Sheldon's similar works, the book seems like a hurried project, rushed out to meet the publishing deadline. Talking about revenge, Lesli [...]

    'Boring' If I have to describe this book with one word,that's the one I choose.dney Sheldon clearly wrote this when he was bored out of his mind in all the other books of his I've read, the protogonist always accomplish what they're set out tobut in this one,he made Leslie Stewart a laughing stock in the end. does one expect to give the lead role to another character in the middle of the damn story Moreover the whole book rides on the simple twist at the end (no spoilers) but other than that the [...]

    An Odd1
    Author is Sidney Sheldon corporation, suggests owners of a name hire ghostwriters to capitalize on previous successes by the original name. Formula seems to be power-hungry characters of importance, fame and physical beauty threatened by affairs and murder, international research, with a surprise twist or two. Lead female cleverly outwits men to success. Action avalanches so fast, I forgot previous reading and whodunit. Others use the same title, Terry Fallis for an honest Ottawa candidate, and [...]

    Bidushi Das
    The biggest problem with this book is that it tries to handle too much at the same time. There are so many sub plots that the main plot sometimes gets lost. There's romance, betrayal, revenge, adultery, politics, murder mystery, investigative journalism, war, insatiable libidos- and very few of them receive adequate treatment. There's even substance abuse thrown in for good measure. Although some of the subplots do tie-in with the main plot, a majority of it is left hanging and unused. The prota [...]

    Love, jealeousy, crime and revenge in world of US politics and press market. Characters of The Best Laid Plans are of flesh and blood - they love, betray, get married cause of reason to make a carrier, kill to hide their secret passions. Sheldon's book is similiar to Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer. Those books aren't so FBI or CIA as Tom Clancy's stuff. Good for reading while travelling by a train, a tram or a bus.
