The Doomsday Conspiracy is very different from Sheldon’s other works Sheldon’s stories usually feature a strong female protagonist with a rags to riches story and twists turns on every page This one however is a thriller with shades of science fiction sort of with the CIA spies UFOs all thrown in the mix The story concerns an American naval officer Commander Robert Bellamy of the US Naval Intelligence dispatched on a top secret mission A weather balloon carrying sensitive military information has crashed in Switzerland Bellamy is assigned by the NSA to locate the 10 people on a tourist bus who saw the crash But as Robert tries to complete his mission he discovers that there is lot to the mission than he is told and a deadly chase begins The book can be divided into 2 halves One with Bellamy tracking down each of the passengers one at a time thanks to convenient hints It’s repetitive but uite enjoyable The other half deals with unraveling of the mystery and Bellamy criss crossing entire Europe that carries the reader to Washington Zurich Bern Geneva London Munich Rome Brussels Ottawa Kiev Bucharest Naples and other interesting places it really feels like a luxury tour at this point It’s as if Bellamy the readers are running around circles till they reach the eventual climax The Climax is uite unbelievable After reading 400 pages you are expecting some answers but the climax feels so abrupt inane you feel as if the writer ran out of ideas to finish this book There are just 5 main characters in this book So you can guess the ‘evil villain’ even before the second half begins The Doomsday Conspiracy is not very original either in theme or characterization; however it is a thoroughly slick job of fiction writing Last but not the least Dan Brown the author of The Da Vinci Code named The Doomsday Conspiracy as the book that inspired him to write thriller fiction citing its simplicity of the prose and efficiency of the storyline So this may not be one of the best works of Sheldon but in the end it lead to lot of good things Several years before the X files movie Sidney Sheldon writer of I Dream of Jeannie wrote this thriller about aliens and government cover upsIt's pretty silly over all What was weird though is that Sheldon includes a bunch of real evidence of a government conspiracy in the book's postscript dozens of scientists who worked on Reagan's Star Wars who mysteriously diedMoral of the story Don't read books off of your mom's bookshelf even if you're really bored The Doomsday Conspiracy is another thriller novel by my favorite author Sidney Sheldon The story concerns an American naval officer Commander Robert Bellamy who was mysteriously recruited in the NSA to investigate a balloon crash accident in the Swiss Alps where it said that there were seven 7 witnesses He was tasked to search for the said witnesses and report it to the authorities immediately I know I shall not go into the story in detail as it will contain spoilers but personally I kind of dislike this novel because this is a Sci Fi and unfortunately I am not a fan of that kind of genre especially those that contains aliens and zombiesDespite the fact that I was uite irked with the novel’s sci fi twist luckily this novel involves illegal and barbaric ways of the government in covering up a situation that will cause public panic In a wider sense Sheldon exposes the failure of the military and other governmental organizations to tell the truth about certain events that they would prefer not to explain The rationale was Why alarm the public unnecessarily about phenomena they cannot understand Since the authorities themselves are basically ignorant about extraterrestrial beings they rather than making any attempt to meet them and learn their purposes automatically classify their appearances as enemy action In other words dehumanization is the price paid by the government to protect our national security I mean would that be possible in the near future That specific uestion disturbed my mind for uite some time nowJust a surprise fact I randomly learned that Dan Brown the author of popular thriller novel The Da Vinci Code named The Doomsday Conspiracy as the book that inspired him to write thriller fiction citing its simplicity of the prose and efficiency of the storyline “The line came from a legend about a hunter who was relating an experience he had on safari “This huge lion was racing toward me and all my gun bearers had fled I had no gun and there was nowhere to hide Not a bush or a tree in sight And the beast was charging straight at me coming closer and closer”The Doomsday Conspiracy by Sidney Sheldon 35 starsIt wasn't bad I happen to be a long time fan of Sheldon and this book reminded me greatly od one of his others Are you afraid of the dark Both t hose books are fast paced have many twists and turns and feature PoliticsSpies as main charactersThis was better then Are you Afraid of the Dark but I did not love it simply because I prefer some of Sheldon's other books I am not really into international conspiracy books or spy books but I have tried to read everything Sheldon has written and am almost doneThe writing i s good so if you are a fan of this genre you may want to read this I prefer Bloodline and The other side of midnight which I count as my favorite of his books The plot is indeed captivating But Mr Sheldon didn't do his homework on the USSR The book swarms with American stereotypes about the Soviets Bad Russian sweets he says bullshit you should have tasted some before making statements like that I don't want to list all those errors and provocative paragraphs in The Doomsday Conspiracy yet the book had been written long after the end of the Cold War Well it's a work of fiction rather than a documentary but still it looks like a cheap propaganda piece The Aliens are invading The world is dying They are killing usWorld's industrialization is the problem for Aliens They think people are destroying the earth due to all chemicals released from the industry So Aliens have demanded the nuclear and manufacturing industries to be stopped They have warned that unless people agree to do so they will invade the earth Now the secret agency from the strongest countries of the world have come together and formed the secret organisation 'Operation Doomsday' to fight against the Aliens The operation is hidden from the world in order to avoid public panicOne day while making a trip to the earth UFO consisting of 3 aliens crashes in the Alps of Switzerland 2 out of 3 aliens die and one gets lost The incident is witnessed by 10 people Now the Operation Doomsday is eager to find those 10 witnesses and stop them from spreading the news Commander Robert Bellamy of US Naval Intelligence is temporarily recruited by NSA for this assignment His job is to find those 10 witnesses without consulting with anyone Dutifully Robert innocently finds those witnesses one by one but after each time Robert locates the witness is mysteriously killed Robert is unknown about this fact until he hands them the final witness and his own life gets in danger Now Robert is trying to save his own life His own friends have become enemies There is no place to go to and no person to trust to but the only thing he has is the skills and intelligence Robert once had training in US Naval Intelligence to avoid the circumstance like this Now whatever he learnt from them he tends to use on them I felt deep pain for Robert when he unfolds the story of the only woman he ever loved and will ever love He had her but because of too much of work away from home she slowly slips out of his hands and ends up marrying someone else The annoying thing is she comes back to him at the end Robert should have found someone else She should have suffered as much as Robert had Oh well it feels nice to read about happy ending though After reading almost all of Sidney's book I kind of knew beforehand that this books consists of suspense with many twist and turns but never ever expected Aliens UFOS and scientific fiction from him It totally blew my mind Without a doubt he did a great job ps Do you know what inspired Dan Brown to write thriller fiction The Doomsday Conspiracy Just wondering if Dan Brown named his character Robert Landon because of Robert here Sidney is getting another point for this I got to 23% before I gave up That's 66 pages I read today I could probably have finished it by tonight However I just couldn't force myself to do so Let me tell you whySpoiler Alert Don't read if you plan to read this book The characters were thinner than the electronic pages I was reading from They are so unbelievably wispy and ridiculous that I couldn't even move past them to forgive the low hanging fruit of a story line For instance a man is driving to work when he sees a woman on the side of the road waving Now we as readers know she's going to kill the man My you sure are handsome even though you're an elderly man and I get turned on by being pushed out of a moving car by my boyfriend so will you have sex with me Just No Just noIt was terrible He could have at least made these necessary interactions believable I know people who know too much need to be taken care of It's necessary to any conspiracy story But give it than three sentences It's like Mr Sheldon didn't want to waste time on these lower bits of the story that aren't as important Ahem Yes They areAnd the whole introduction of the fact that we're dealing with a UFO and not a weather balloon Sigh Of course there were aliens on board Of course their hands regenerate with green slime when they're chopped off No Seriously That really happens green goo and all Fine If that's how it happens so be it It just seemed to me to be that Mr Sheldon wanted to rush through all of it Like he's hurried to get to some good part of the book Well I'm sorry but I'm not sticking around to see what it is Because this is just some of the worst story telling I've ever seenBaaad Stay away from this hogwash The Doomsday Conspiracy by Sidney Sheldon was a real entertainer The author’s style of writing is what I enjoyed the most it was simple clear witty at times and fast paced too One could easily relate to all of his characters specially the protagonist Commander Robert Bellamy the portraying of that character was very real and convincing thank god he was not one of those picture perfect super hero who knew everything Other than that the plot was very gripping with enough twists and turns and mystery to keep the readers engrossed I am glad I read a Sidney Sheldon book at last it was a treat for a first time reader like me and I will definitely be reading of his books We can be certain that if aliens come to Planet Earth they will not be coming to destroy it humans are already doing this for them Here i am thinking i can't get any surprise from Sydneythen this book hit's me with a BAMDont get me wrong i know Syd is full of twists and turn so i know before even oppening this book that it is going to be a WOW BUt i neve expect it to blow my mindI was reading the first few chapters and i keep turning the cover making sure it was Sydney's work because this one was totally different It has ALIENS I mean can you believe it I have read about yakuza'a mobbs lawyer but never did i expect from Sydney ALIENS and UFOSSydney has an amazing writing I dont even know why im saying this knowing im sure EVERYONE already knows that It's like saying the heart is red or the sky is blue It is THAT obviousI have read pretty much all of he's book and never have i been disappointed i mean i did get disappointedonce but blame it on the ebook Chapter one yup just on chapter one i felt the depth of the characters pain I felt he's love and felt sorry for him just by reading a 3 page chapter I already felt connected I understood he yearned for he's ex wifeJust by a single phone communication that lasted for a what a minuteTHAT IS HOW GOOD SYDNEY IS HE IS LIKE THE BEST WRITER THAT HAS EVER DAMN LIVEDDamn all those people who gave this book 3 below star That's just STUPID SORRY i dont like it if people hates my favorite writerAnyway I have never and I mean ever LIKED books that which revolves around male POV before but becuase of this book i changed my mind Actually i started hating mystery books but reading this has turned me aroundUh OH MAJOR VENTING COMING UPMy only complaint being a hopeless romantic that i am is how the Alien woman didn't end up with the Robert Why can't Sydney be romantic Why didn't he broke Robert's ex wife's heart like she broke he's I wanted to make he's ex wife suffer and I MEAN SUFFER REAL REAL BAD she sounds like a nice gal but still she broke his heart That evil evil SWINE UGGGHHHHHH I hated it when they got up together She does not deserve Robert I want her to realize she lover Robert leave her present husband SHE BROKE UP WITH ROBERT BECAUSE OF FREAKING HIM tries to go back with Robert but he already met that beutiful alien lady and during their escapes and adventures trying not to get killed they fell in love and so Robert tells her 'goodbye but im in love with her' and then she's like 'I shoudn't have ever left you go' and then theirs me 'YOUR FAULT BTCH'I swear i never use the B word but gosh that woman pushed
