But even though, it is a nice read. If you liked this book you'll really en A sweet love story about a girl who wants to become a hollywood star and a guy involved in the military.
If you liked this book you'll really enjoy other books from her such as: I really enjoyed this book, though I don't agree with some of the choices that the characters made. Steel repeats herself constantly, telling us over and over how beautiful Crystal is, as if we'd forget that she, or any of Steel's characters for that matter, are anything but stunningly beautiful. But overall a great read about one woman's ability to survive. Apr 12, Anie rated it it was amazing Shelves: A nice love story about a girl who wanted to become a Hollywood star.
The problems and bad people she had to face which is a reality. It's the harsh reality shown that is often seen in this stream. The guy is involved in the military and the two people are not able to meet until the end but thank god, it was it was a happy ending that kept the good mood. I liked the story, classic Danielle Steel where two people can't be together for whatever reason but it all works out in the end.
I saw another review on here where somebody remarked on her repeating herself on numerous occasions as if she's trying to pad the book out, which I totally agree with - that's the only downer really. Dec 23, Umang rated it liked it. It was a little harsh what happened to the girl but I guess that's sort of reality. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Danielle Steel - I think it's one of her best. I enjoyed it all the way through and I didn't want it to end.
It was great. Feb 07, Brandy rated it it was ok Shelves: This book started out much butter than it ended. Parts of her books are so believable and then it spins off in to the fantasy world. It also seemed rushed towards the end. It was an ok book though. Sep 02, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a great book about multiple personality disorder. It was really fascinating to me to hear about a girl that dealt with a trauma and how that developed into MPD. I would definately recommend this book.
Jun 24, Emilie rated it liked it. I read this when I was 13 and it was my favorite book then, but I doubt I would still love it as much. Sin embargo y pese a que parezca lo contrario, existen varios errores en el libro. Por otra parte, el libro recalca demasiado en un inicio la belleza de Crystal, tanto que es molesto. There were many years wasted in Crystal's and Spencer's love story and even the happy ending didn't satisfy me, I felt like it was rushed. I wanted the author to talk more about Spencer's and Crystal's life after he found out about his son, their marriage and what will happen to their careers??
And I think that even clarifying Crystal's name would be better even for their careers for example after years of Ernie's murder, a bussiness man suspected of corruption was caught and he will eventually admit the culpability of Ernie's murder. Like that it will be a happy and a fair ending for all without extending the problem for years and years like Danielle Steel had done I didn't like how Zeb lived for seven years without knowing his father.
I didn't like also Brian's and Crystal's affair ,I wanted them to be best friends and good companions nothing more than that.
Nov 16, Divya rated it it was ok. In Danielle Steel's "Star", the author has tried to bring out the story of a young girl with a big dream of becoming a Hollywood star. Love blooms when she meets the hero for the first time but the chain of unfortunate events occur after her father's death.
First of all, the blurb of the story deceived the actual content inside. Danielle steel had tried to touch the emotional side of a reader, which might not be successful with all. The story could have been much crispier and written with better In Danielle Steel's "Star", the author has tried to bring out the story of a young girl with a big dream of becoming a Hollywood star.
The story could have been much crispier and written with better emotions. However, the plot is simple and tedious. The style of writing was at snail's pace which turned it unintriguing. To be outspoken, this might not give a good impression for the first read of Danielle steel's collections.
Oct 16, Emi Halili rated it really liked it. It shows, struggle, love, heartbreak and ache but victory in the end. This book will make you smile, cry and frustrated at different points. It illustrates that if you never give up on your dreams you will always get there in the end, no matter what obstacles will come your way.
The only downfall for this book was at times it dragged out a bit however, in the end it made perfect sense as to why.
Woul 'Star' really goes into depth of the struggles of a young girl trying to make it big in the 50s. Would definitely recommend if you're a lover of novels and happy endings. Feb 02, Roshita rated it really liked it. Beautiful story of a girl named Crystal and her journey from village ranch to Hollywood and back to the village again.
It literally took me forever to finish this book and at a point I was frustated because the story of Crystal and spencer never seemed to end. However, of all the books I've read of Danielle Steel, this has to be my favourite one. Jun 23, Nardia Usini rated it really liked it. Disturbing to some degree but I guess love isn't measured in numbers or is it?! Most frustrating fictional romance that I couldn't bring myself to stop reading until the very end.
Sep 13, D. One of my favorite DS novels. The country girl goes to the big city and begins her life as a young adult. She begins in a bar graduates to singer and while singing finds she can act. Hollywood here she comes. She is having an exciting career until a small mistake courts and she runs back to the valley. This is an excellent read for the genre Oct 09, Brigitte rated it it was ok. This book was given to me to read by a neighbor. It had been a long time since I had read any of her books, and can see now why I stopped.
Besides being too long, the characters were not very believable and after enduring the plot, the book no surprise had a pat quick ending.
Apr 22, Diana rated it it was amazing. Mom gave this book to me years ago, one of the first Danielle Steele books I've ever read I loved this one.
Star 1 4 Nov 20, Readers also enjoyed. About Danielle Steel. Danielle Steel. Since , Ms. Steel has been a permanent fixture on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestseller lists. In , she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having at least one of her books on the Times bestseller list for 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 over consecutive weeks. Twenty-one of Ms. Steel's novels have been adapted for television, each earning high ratings and critical acclaim, including two Golden Globe nominations for JEWELS, a four-hour mini-series that starred Anthony Andrews.
In addition, Ms. Steel is the author of the "Max and Martha" series of books for young readers.
They are ten illustrated storybooks written to comfort the young as they face problems, such as a new stepfather, new baby, new school, loss of a grandparent, and other crucial dilemmas in a child's life. She has also written the "Freddie" books, four of them, about real-life situations in children's lives, like a visit to the doctor and the first night away from home. In , Ms. Steel was decorated by the French government as an "Officier" of the distinguished Order of Arts and Letters, for her lifetime contribution to world culture.
She was awarded the second highest rank of the Order. Steel also has a passionate interest in emerging contemporary artists. She has had an art gallery for several years, and and continues to sponsor and organize free lance art shows and events to show the work of emerging and mid-career artists. She has a degree in design herself. In addition to her writing, Ms. Steel has varied philanthropic interests. She founded and runs two foundations, one named in honor of her late son, The Nick Traina Foundation, which funds organizations involved in mental illness and child abuse.
The second was established to assist the homeless. She has won numerous awards for her personal work with mentally ill adolescents and children. Steel maintains a passionate interest in the welfare and well-being of children, particularly those in jeopardy. She has raised nine children of her own.
And they continue to keep her busy, as she juggles writing and family. Her family is her first priority, despite her many interests.
From an education in New York and Europe to a professional background in public relations and advertising, and teaching, Ms. Steel moved on quickly to her literary career and has been hard at work writing ever since. She wrote her first book at nineteen. Often, she works on five books at a time — researching one storyline, writing another, and editing the third.
Still, she often spends two to three years researching and developing a single project. In the heat of a first draft, it is not uncommon for her to spend eighteen to twenty hours a day glued to her Olympia manual typewriter. Family, children, and young people are the central focus of her life, and her passion, which frequently shows in her writing.
She deals with the themes that touch on the most pressing issues of real life, which makes her books universal, and touch so many people. She is fascinated by the pressing life situations that affect us all, how people handle them and are often transformed as a result. And her novels have explored subjects such as kidnapping, incest, mental illness, suicide, death, divorce, adoption, marriage, loss, cancer, war, among others.
