Do not read this book. I am going to say this as many times as possible. If you are a Sheldon fan, run away. God, burn her at the stake. View all 4 comments. Mar 04, Jules added it. Instead it turns out that it's written by some no-name wannabe lame ass writer. Now I know that sequels to bestsellers by passed-away-authors aren't unusual but nowhere have I ever encountered a sequel advertised in such a way as to deliberately make readers believe they'd get something delivered by the pen of the original author.
I don't have words for how disappointed I am. This woman just can't write. And she crtainly can't hold a candle to Sheldon! I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. In fact, I want my money back! View 1 comment. Feb 06, Tim rated it it was ok. This story is about elitism, women, money, power and classism. If that floats your boat this is for you. This anchored sailor is unimpressed.

To be honest, if this book was NOT a sequel to a book written by Sidney Sheldon, I would have probably given it a 3 stars instead of a 2. However, because it is a sequel to one of the best books written by Sheldon and toys with fantastic characters that Sheldon created, I couldn't help but compare Bagshawe's with Sheldon's work and be disappointed with Bagshawe.
Hence, the 2 stars. If you haven't read Master of the Game, you should. Because I read it years ago when I was a teenager and until To be honest, if this book was NOT a sequel to a book written by Sidney Sheldon, I would have probably given it a 3 stars instead of a 2.
Because I read it years ago when I was a teenager and until today I will quote it as a must-read of the thriller genre. In fact, Master of the Game was one of the books that buoyed and fueled my transition from childhood reading to adult reading; that's how good it was.
Sheldon's prose was powerful and tight, I remember being gripped by every word he wrote and continually turning the pages to find out what would happen next. Each member of the Blackwell family was strong and so enigmatic that their motivations and actions were so tangible that I got utterly caught up with their next tactical maneuvoure. Not so Bagshawe's attempt at a sequel.
I really did try to like the novel if nothing for the sake of my good memories of Master of the Game but I couldn't. Bagshawe's prose was rambling and loose so much so I finished the book in one day because I was skipping chunks of text to keep my hold on the thread of the main plot. On that note, I think that's why although Bagshawe's and Sheldon's plot twists were technically on par in terms of creative genius, Bagshawe's didn't deliver as much impact and leave me reeling as Sheldon's did because I was spending way too much time navigating prose that was flapping all over the darn place!
I'd give credit where credit is due: But as it is, Bagshawe's characters lacked the spark that Sheldon's did. The Blackwells crafted by Sheldon had a certain grit and depth to their personalities that made me invest heavily in their stories; Bagshawe's didn't.
Again, I believe it might've been the prose that Bagshawe employed in describing them and their interactions? All in all, I'm not sure whether I'd pick up another Bagshawe book, especially one that attempts to continue in the vein of Sidney Sheldon. If you want a Sidney Sheldon-esque book, you might probably be better off re-reading books by the man himself.

The past is the past and it can't be changed. It's the future I'm interested in. Jun 09, DeRonda added it. The master storyteller Mr. Sheldon is likely rolling in his grave! Though no prude myself, even I put the book down when the author found it necessary to vividly describe a pedophiles tryst with 11 yr old twins in Thailand.
O The master storyteller Mr. Only later did I pick up the book, convincing myself that the minor character would most likely not be heard from again, and I was probably safe from such disgusting monologue.
Where Sheldon had introduced us to members of the Blackwell family as power-driven, determined, cunning, and yes, even obsessed I have challenged myself to complete the book, to honor the characters of Mr. Sheldon what's left of them! TBC Update; Upon completion, it didn't get any better.
RIP Mr. Feb 20, Rachel rated it did not like it.
Atrocious, is what I think! Having read and loved almost all of Sheldon's works in my teenage years, I was thrilled when a friend lent me this sequel. I wish she didn't, because I'm now questioning my unwavering adoration for SS: Were his works that good, or was I just too young and naive to lose myself into his stories? I've got to search for all these books again! Weird, freaky 8-year-olds; one calmly goes thro' a kidnapping ordeal without any fear.
Instead, she's already plotting her revenge o Atrocious, is what I think! Instead, she's already plotting her revenge on 'the pig'. Just what planets do these kids come from?
They then go ahead and have an incestuous relationship, all in the name of hate. Mothers poisoning their children against their fathers; offering them guns as birthday gifts??? These one-sided characters that are either all amazing like Alexandra, Lexi, Gabe or flat out evil like Eve and Max. Then came this clincher: Gabe's maiden flight to Johannesburg that was apparently " A family of 11 tried to bring a crate of live chicken on board as hand luggage". And when he Gabe goes to work on a construction site in Capetown, and all the blacks spoke Swahili.
This doesn't only reek of ignorance, but total laziness! This writer needs to stop messing up Sidney Sheldon for us. Mar 14, Richard Simms rated it really liked it.

Movie Screenplays A through M
And Sheldon would be proud of the lightning-quick plot that manages to both deliver exactly what one expects and yet still manage to surprise. These days, it's tough to find a truly good "trashy" novel. But Bagshawe's was so good that the day I finished, I rushed out to download After The Darkness, her second attempt to tackle Sheldon's style.
It's worth noting that in the past, I attempted to read one of Bagshawe's works, Adored, and simply didn't find it captivating. Somehow, channeling Sheldon helped bring her potential to fruition! First of all, I have never read Sidney Sheldon.
Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game
I have read and loved Tilly Bagshawe's previous books Adored and Showdown. Her writing is what Jackie Collins used to be, before Jackie lost her edge. You do not have to read his book to read this sequel. Bagshawe recaps everything. This book is a very light read. The character developments were good, even though none of them were likeable.
Y First of all, I have never read Sidney Sheldon. You have Eve, the demented Mother, who was turned into a monster, under the knife, from her blackmailing husband. Then you have the cousins, Max, the ever twisted son who was only born to do his Mother Eve's revenge. Then there is Lexi, who was kidnapped and sexually abused as a child. She is so demented you can't even root for her. Then there is Gabe who shares Max and Lexi's great grandfather a loser turned hero.
Honestly, I could have done without Gabe's story. The plot consists of cousins Max and Lexi who fight for control of the family business Kruger-Brent, Ltd.
Everyone is so messed up, you can't wait to see who kills who. Her and Max have x-rated sex, with zero boundaries. Did I mention they are cousins? Then Gabe comes into the picture. The fact no one found it disturbing in the family that they were related and getting it on, but actually encouraged it. I think even the author thought I should be rooting for her and Gabe.
Then add all the sick Thailand underage sex and sexual innuendos. Why did I finish? Just to see if any of them were killed off. If you are Jackie Collins fan and want to step it up a demented notch this one is for you. View all 5 comments. Jan 31, Isabel rated it did not like it. I have never read a book with so many unlikeable characters. Disappointed in Sidney Sheldon.
I apologize to Sidney Sheldon. I did not realize 5 years ago that they hadn't written this book, I guess I got lost in the title. May 08, Kirtan rated it did not like it. Certainly unlike what Sheldon might have written. Nov 01, Deena Allouni rated it it was amazing. The book was full of mystery scandal lies and love I absolutely enjoyed reading it.
Jul 27, LookPla rated it it was amazing Shelves: Eight-year-olds who think and have soliloquys like eighty-year-olds is weird rather than applausable. Lexi and Max at that young age were too well-spoken for eight-year-olds e. Lexi's thoughts when she was kidnapped. None of them were left out. Lexi and Max. In love and lust? Ugh, I know it's fiction but way to go grossing me out about a romantic relationship, Tilly Bagshawe!
The ending was a cliffhanger, in such a way that it seemed there would be a third book to this family's drama but there are no inclinations that there'll be a follow-up. I wasn't looking for a happy ending Sheldon books are scarce with happily-ever-afters but a proper conclusion would have sufficed.
Apr 18, Zulva Fachrina rated it it was ok. I don't like Sidney Sheldon's to begin with, and I don't like whoever this woman who continue his books. I know that even if this book is miserable, many people said that Master of Game is masterpiece, but then I realise Sidney Sheldon's works are not my cup of tea. I can't handle too much conspiracy, politics, adult stuff you know what i mean , free lifestyle, tragedy, revenge and such in every Sheldon's books.
I read many Sheldon's books just because my mom liked it and bought it, and I c I don't like Sidney Sheldon's to begin with, and I don't like whoever this woman who continue his books.
I read many Sheldon's books just because my mom liked it and bought it, and I can't let any book in my bookshelf unread. Mar 09, Kimberly rated it it was amazing. I remembered my college days after rating these book?
My bestfriend introduce me to sidney sheldon who at first is my ever favorite author. It was just like first love at first read! I can't blink my eyes as I scanned the pages and beholding the content of every word. As if I am one of the characters. And there was a time when I can't resist and let go of my studies! Amazing book.
Amazing author. Oct 17, Linda Shrum rated it really liked it. I certainly enjoyed this book. However at times I felt it was slow, too many characters to keep track of and I wanted it to move along.
The last pages took care of that. I was hastily swept away with the climax. Tilly did, in fact, do a terrific job of pulling it all together and left no doubt as to who was the mistress of the game. Well done! Jun 06, Sami Tunji rated it really liked it.
It's really intriguing how the lust for power culminates into losses - the loss of enemies, the loss of loved ones and the loss of self.
This episodic story salted with suspense is soaked with the lust for power and its tragic consequence of losses. Jan 29, Kathy Warren rated it it was amazing. Read Sidney Shelton's Master of the Game and loved it. Mistress of the Game the sequel is at its best.
Love the main character Lexi. Jun 23, Cherie rated it it was amazing. Y u do dis Sidney Sheldon and Tilly Bagshawe? Sep 02, Julie rated it did not like it. Sbg lanjutan dari novel Master of the Game , novel ini gagal membangkitkan kedigdayaan dan super manipulator Kate Blackwell. Lexi Templeton sbg cicit Kate tidak mampu menandingi pesona sang nenek downloadut.
Yg pertama dan terutama saya kecewa dgn susunan kronologis tahun-tahun yg berlangsung sepanjang riwayat hidup para anggota keluarga Blackwell ini, semuanya acak kadut dan berantakan, bila dihitung dari thn saat kematian Kate berusia 92 thn. Tidak mungkin Kate baru melahirkan anaknya setelah Sbg lanjutan dari novel Master of the Game , novel ini gagal membangkitkan kedigdayaan dan super manipulator Kate Blackwell.
Lagipula masa anak Kate sudah berhasil memberi Kate cucu saat usia thn? Jika Alexandra dan Eve dibilang berusia 34 thn pd thn , berarti mereka lahir thn Kedua, Max dan Lexi sbg downloadut Kate yg sama-sama berambisi, sayangnya author hanya memaparkan pendek dan kurang jelas bagaimana cara mereka dibesarkan.
Max hanya digambarkan sbg anak mama yg menuruti segala perintah ibunya yg super licik tanpa keberatan maupun keraguan sama sekali. Begitu pula Lexi yg dibesarkan dgn piring emas dan sendok perak, cuma digambarkan pernah diculik wkt masih kecil sehingga terobsesi pd balas dendam dan Kruger Brent, perusahaan milik downloadutnya. Saya heran Lexi yg terlalu ingin membuktikan diri pd dunia bhw dia bukan perempuan lemah, justru menunjukkannya pd cara terlemah sbg gadis pesta dan penggemar sex yg menyimpang.
Ketiga, terlalu banyak hal-hal dramatis dan lagi-lagi kurang deskripsi sebab-akibat. Perubahan diri pd Peter Templeton ayah Lexi setelah kematian Alexandra maupun Max Webster menjelang kebangkrutan Kruger-Brent makin membingungkan saya. Sosok Lexi yg mau digambarkan seperti burung Phoenix, yg berubah dari abu menjadi burung yg cantik, rasanya berlebihan dan tidak tepat.
Bagi saya, Lexi lebih mirip Paris Hilton yg manja dan senang mencari publisitas negatif. Karakter Gabriel McGregor sbg hero di novel ini dan menjalin asmara dgn Lexi, sangat dipaksakan. Apalagi dibawa-bawa bhw kakek downloadut Gabe msh bersaudara dgn Jamie McGregor. Sisi bagus dari novel ini, suspense nya masih terasa walaupun volume nya cuma bergetar saja, kalah jauh dgn Master of the Game yg membahana. Cara Lexi menjatuhkan Kruger-Brent lumayan menarik, begitu pula kucing-kucingan dgn kepolisian dan interpol.
Akhir cerita juga masih menggantung dan rasa-rasanya sih ada kelanjutan. Aug 28, Elizabeta rated it liked it Shelves: Solid sequel, but can't really compare to the first one. View 2 comments.
Sep 18, Archana Chari rated it it was ok Shelves: The Mistress of the Game: Not up to the mark http: Tilly succeeded in bringing back Sidney sheldon's characters alive but the characters were dancing for Tilly's tune and not Sidney's. If you want to be famous, write a sequel to a bestseller, don't go after the legend!
Sidney Sheldon was and forever will be the master storyteller. As for the characters, I'd like to start with Gabe. He is a drug addict, loser, criminal and a prisoner.
When he is released and suspec The Mistress of the Game: When he is released and suspected for a fraudster again, the natural reaction would be to think he is guilty. But the detective who inquires the case believes in him even though he knows Gabe is an ex-con. What was I reading? Sidney Sheldon's sequel or some self motivating crap? The characters were co-operative and lending a helping hand in every step of his. Dhai helps him in real estate business. His friend from "prison" yeah that's right.
People are very generous and kind is financing him to start a real estate business from scratch. Tara agrees to marry him on a lousy second date. He works for AIDS charity. He hires a detective to spy on Lexi. Now that is purely Tilly not Sidney!
This is not Jeffrey Archer's or James Rollins.. It is Sidney Sheldon's! It has to be thrilling, manipulative, evil cut throat competition. There was no room for warm sentiments in the Master of the Game nor should there be any in its sequel!
I am kind of disappointed to see how Robbie's character turned out. In The Master of the Game, the last scene goes like Kate getting tuned to manipulate her great grandson when she sees him at the Piano, waiting to build up a career as a Pianist and not as a Chairman in Kruger Brunt.
I'd have least expected that sweet little aspiring pianist to be gay. Lexi Late Alexandra's daughter is supposedly a wild cat I don't see it who is ambitious and righteous right from her childhood. Her moral values are crushed and her emotions are evidently shattered when she is kidnapped and raped as a child. But she doesn't let that or her deafness from the bomb blast affect her in anyway.
She tracks down the rapist and kills him in the prison. She strides Kruger-Brunt office along side Max Eve's son and proves to be a prospective Chairwoman of the company. But the tide turns over when Max seduces her and lures her into bed That's so gross because their mothers are twin sisters and they are cousins!
