Thanks Ramya for this book. I can't wait to read more of his works: Aug 27, Vanessa rated it it was ok. Anatomy of a Sidney Sheldon read 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 Oh well, at least this one is a lawyer page You so can't do that. Maybe if I were on an airplane.
Still, way better than James Patterson.
Sheldon really was a good storyteller for his genre and yet I wonder what he was trying to say. Stay virgins girls or you'll end up with a shady lady killer, literally? Or perhaps I overthink this.

But from all the book he I thought it was a she wrote, this one and Sand of Times is my favourite. But then many things happen and many people came along the way, that changed her innocent way of thinking. I found it scary, that people actually can change because of the situation happened to them. I hate end of the story by the way. Her loneliness described very well, cause I felt a sting in my heart imagining her closing the door and trying to remember when was the last time she was happy.
I need end of Sands of Time to recover my sadness from reading this. View all 4 comments. Dec 27, Hayat rated it really liked it Recommended to Hayat by: More importantly, I couldn't help admiring the main character, Jennifer Parker, a successful lawyer for sticking up for herself, for being such a fighter, a go-getter, a woman with talent, courage and intelligence who is not afraid to show it. At times, Jennifer was weak, she made stupid decisions that destroyed her hard work and reputation but then continued to follow up with more bad decisions concerning men, but that just makes her a deeply flawed interesting character and I like that.
The ending was fitting and left space for possibilities. I really admire Sidney Sheldon for letting his main character go crazy, for not being afraid to let his heroine soar high, to be triumphant and suddenly fall to pieces in a major way that had me horrified.
Usually, I don't like character devolution, but Rage of Angels was well done. I can't wait to try another Sidney Sheldon book. View all 19 comments.
Jun 10, Mwanamali rated it it was amazing Shelves: I had a different review where I gushed about Jennifer Parker, but upon closer inspection and reevaluation I've changed my mind. I still love this book because the story is just This story revolves primarily around Jennifer's stupidity and questionable decisions when it comes to Michael and Adam.
The action was insane. But if I met Jennifer right now, I would bitch slap her back to the land of common sense. Then again, if she had been smart in the first place, there wouldn't have been such a I had a different review where I gushed about Jennifer Parker, but upon closer inspection and reevaluation Then again, if she had been smart in the first place, there wouldn't have been such a captivating story.
FYI, view spoiler [Jennifer, when you see some guy act like he is part of a group then tells you to deliver a sealed envelope to a key witness, just don't do it. And also, if a mafia boss tells you to become his consigliere, please don't. You could get a convicted murderer out of a second conviction. You were definitely capable of getting out from under cosa nostra's thumb. And sleeping with Adam? Le sigh I can't even hide spoiler ] But Sidney, you slayed me with this one.

Sep 20, Asmita rated it it was amazing Shelves: In Goodreads, a five star rating means that the book was really amazing, but Rage of Angels was not just amazing, it completely blew me away. Every author is so keen on making the leading character, a living legend, that the tragedy is lost. But that is the only emotion that we can relate to best apart from love.
Joy is individual, sorrow is universal. Sidney Sheldon has pushed his imagination to the extremes, and finally there is everything in this book that a book needs to be complete. Jennifer In Goodreads, a five star rating means that the book was really amazing, but Rage of Angels was not just amazing, it completely blew me away.
Jennifer is in love with Adam Warner and Michael Moretti and nothing seems to make sense and on top of that her son, Joshua, dies and she is all alone. Every author feels the need for adrenaline for his readers to enjoy his book to the fullest, but very few can actually display it in words. Everyone wants to play it safe, because no one wants the leading character to die or become the bad guy or change.
But Sidney Sheldon had really shown what he can do with his characters. I love the ruthlessness in the writing.
What happens to Jennifer in the book is what is likely to happen to a person sharing a fate similar to hers and no one can escape it. In that way, Jennifer would become Tracy Whitney If Tomorrow Comes for some time and then she could go back to living her normal life.
But this is the only book that I have ever read that actually goes beyond the limitations of imagination and penetrates deeper into the tragedies of human life, which makes it much more believable as we can relate to it.

You never fail to entertain me. This time, though, you didn't quite electrify me. I don't think this is one of your best works.
It's got some absolutely terrific elements two thumbs up for the kid's near crucifixion; ditto for his water skiing horror , but somehow it just doesn't quite scale the giddy heights of excess that 'The Other Side of Midnight' does so very, very well. But this i Ah, Sidney, Sidney But this is not to say I wasn't gripped and engaged. I read this in a couple of days, which is doing very well for me.
But some of the expectations I had in the excellent first half didn't quite deliver with pay-offs in the corruption-drenched second half. They didn't. Not even poor Stumpy, the limbless beauty queen.
Also, Ken? Was he a pillow biting old Nancy or not? Admittedly my beat up 80s copy was missing ten pages around a third of the way in, but I doubt if those bits were crucial to the Ken subplot.
What WAS Ken? Anyway, even when faintly mediocre, Sidney is never boring. He continues to teach ME lessons about storytelling, and there are plenty of other writers with books on the shelves that I rather wish he'd teach as well. One word: Rage of Angels is a brilliant piece of literature. I loved everything about it. The protagonists, the plot, writing, everything gets a thumbs up from me.
I know this book was written in the early seventies and I tried really hard to keep that in context, but I just couldn't get past the rampant chauvanism this book was laden with. Sheldon tries to portray Jennifer Parker as a strong, independent woman but throughout the story, her life revolves around men!
Her father dies of a broken heart after his wife's affair and subsequent abandonment It just didn't jive. I f I know this book was written in the early seventies and I tried really hard to keep that in context, but I just couldn't get past the rampant chauvanism this book was laden with. I found very little to like about Jennifer. She was just so needy. But I think what I disliked most about Rage Of Angels was that by the end, it had turned me into a feminist and now I realize 5 years later that I never hated feminism, I am a feminist, I only dislike the brand of feminism that strives to hate men for everything.

I'm not sure why is Sheldon against women in general, since I've read like only three books of his, but in both The Sky Is Falling and A Stranger In The Mirror can be found a miserable and lonely woman that ends up exactly like that. And she hasn't really done anything so bad.

I mean seriously? And don't you dare tell me that it happens. Because this book left me depressed and fucked up for a couple of days.
It's terrible. Not even one spark of hope.

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 Beautifully written. One of them is a good white angel, another is a dark angel. The young intelligent attorney is Jennifer Parker, an attractive lady who lives in a cruel man's world, full of crimes, lies and murders, as she tremendously rises as a successful prominent lawyer in New York after being framed for threatening the District Attorney Robert De Silva who is the Chief executive against a Mafia boss, Michael Morreti which in turn leads to a situation that almost break her life's dreams.
As the story progresses, our protagonist picked up every pieces of strength and dignity she still has in her and after having been successful in her pro bono cases she turns out to be the figure of the Godess of the courtrooms.
If you are an aspiring lawyer or in the field of law, this is totally a book for you. You will learn several courtroom dialogues which might be useful for future Criminal Cases whether you are a Prosecutor or a Defense Counsel. You will also learn how to look into details in every possible legit way. Jun 13, VsReadYs rated it it was amazing Shelves: My First Sidney Sheldon and I fell in love. 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. Never take for grated the happy ending for a story and be ready to have you own heart broken in pieces over it. I liked Michael he was who he was no pretendence calls a Spade a Spade,He was a dirty yet handsome crime boss and had no apologizes for it.
I never could take a stance for Adam sometimes I liked him "seriously only sometimes" and the other time Hated him for being the spineless goody two shoes But at the end of the day story purely belong to Jen,from starting as summons deliverer - to the lawyer to the mafia lawyer -and again to fall for Michael bullet. The only regret I have in the entire story Michael dies thinking Jen betrayed him hide spoiler ] Mar 31, Amrutha Stephen rated it it was amazing.
Loved every single page of it. Nov 19, Nancy rated it it was amazing. I read this book when I was in college. I think I still have it. Smart lawyer lady Jennifer gets involved with mob guy Michael Moretti I just loved that name when she enlists his help to find her illigimate son Fathered by a powerful congressman who has been kidnapped by a lunatic who blames her for mishandling his case.
In return for Moretti's help, she becomes involved in a relationship with him It's good vs. This is one of the books. Probably considered a bit "low brow" but, I don't care I loved it.
Of course, that was almost 30 years ago. I might read skim it again and see if I feel the same way about it. This is the first Sidney Sheldon novel I've read, and I can now understand why he's so popular. Jennifer Parker is on her first day of her new job working for the District Attorney's office in New York City, when she does something horrible. She takes a package from a man in the courtroom and delivers it to the witness. She thinks the man works for her boss, but she's wrong.
And the package contains a dead canary. With his Mafia trial falling apart once the witness refuses to continue his testimo This is the first Sidney Sheldon novel I've read, and I can now understand why he's so popular. With his Mafia trial falling apart once the witness refuses to continue his testimony, the district attorney vows to disbar Miss Parker.
Weeks after the trial, Adam Warner steps into Parker's life. He's been asked to investigate her case for the disbarment hearing and to make a recommendation. People have political ambitions for Warner, and Parker's case is seen as a stepping stone for his great future.
Jennifer Parker, a beautiful, inexperienced, newly sworn in Assistant District Attorney for the State of New York , inadvertently participates in a plot by Michael Moretti, the rising star of one of the most powerful organized crime families in America , to escape a trial. Manhattan District Attorney Robert Di Silva, believing that Jennifer is truly responsible, fires her and vows to destroy her for her part in the fiasco with Moretti.
Di Silva initiates disbarment procedures against Jennifer, and young lawyer Adam Warner is assigned to investigate Jennifer. Adam immediately realizes that she is not guilty at all, and falls for her. With Adam's help Jennifer begins to rise again; meanwhile Moretti, inspired by her determination to succeed, follows her career from a distance. Adam, despite being married and groomed for the United States Senate , cannot help falling in love with Jennifer.
When he tells her that his wife Mary Beth has asked for a divorce, Jennifer meets with her. Being so close to the Senate election, the two women decide it is best for Adam to wait until after the election.
But Mary Beth sleeps with Adam one last time, in the process tricking him into impregnating her. Adam learns that his wife is pregnant, wins the election and Jennifer ends their affair. Jennifer, having previously discovered that she too is pregnant and not wanting to be hurt by Adam, accepts but does not reveal to him that she is carrying his child. Jennifer gives birth and names her son Joshua Adam Parker. Only her assistant Ken Bailey knows of Joshua's existence. Jennifer returns to her practice and soon makes headlines as a successful lawyer.
Meanwhile, Moretti constantly tries to spark friendship with Jennifer, which she rebuffs at every attempt, reminding him of his earlier trick that was devastating to her early career. Nevertheless, when her son is kidnapped by a criminal Jennifer is defending, she, in desperation, turns to Moretti for help. After helping her, he seduces her and Jennifer eventually becomes the Family consigliere.
Jennifer's son Joshua dies following a water skiing accident. Jennifer and Moretti are soon being hunted down by the government; he shoots her, wrongly thinking she has betrayed him, and is killed himself in an FBI raid of his house. Adam is able to use his position to save Jennifer.
Jennifer returns to her home town and a small law practice, with everyone she loved taken from her and all joy and happiness gone from her life. It was followed by a sequel, Rage of Angels:
