Master of the game

This has been my favorite book since I was 10 years old. I have still have not found another comparable story. It is an amazing adventure I can only hope everyone can experience. A must read!

Master of the Game

Sidney Sheldon wrote this work of fiction in very much the same style as Harold Robbins' "Carpetbaggers". It deals with the meteoric rise to wealth and fame of a young Scottish fellow who mines diamonds in Africa, and his subsequent heirs to his hard-won fortune. It is actually several books in one, spanning over 100 years, but the narrative is knitted together very well. It is very insightful as far as explaining the various political and socio-economic situations of the day, within the time-frame and context of the story. The novel itself never gets draggy or boring, and although it covers a pretty long time-frame, manages to keep the reader engaged.I am now going to read the sequel, " Mistress of the Game".
