It was a drama read and it made me cry quite a lot at times. It was also so well-written that the story, although "squezed" into pages I read a kinda different edition was totally NOT boring or with plot gaps.
And that is talent. The plot twists were efficiently and amazingly working as a true kaleidoscope! Enjoy the read!! May 25, Sea Urchin rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book. Read it years back. The plot is very interesting, about 3 sisters who are separated when little and each of them lives a very different life than the other, and when they grow up they find each other and its amazing to see how completely DIFFERENT they are.
The book sort of shows the nature vs nurture debate. The book is also in very simple language and easy to read. Keeps you glued till the end! Sep 30, Joshua Marquez rated it really liked it. With just the turn of a kaleidoscope, your vision on life can shift, whether it be for the better or for the worse. I would recommend Danielle Steel's story; Kaleidoscope. Not only because it's full of love, tragedy, and determination showing how easy it is for life to change in an instant, but because conveys the idea that with enough persistence, you can make your way through any situation, and that's what I love about it.
It's set in mid and post WWII, and centers itself around the oldest ch With just the turn of a kaleidoscope, your vision on life can shift, whether it be for the better or for the worse. It's set in mid and post WWII, and centers itself around the oldest child of three sisters, Hilary, who, when her parents tragically and abruptly disappear out of her life, is then separated and forced to live with new people, in a new environment foreign and unfamiliar to her. Separated from each other at a young age, they grow up without each other.
The eldest, Hilary, will have to learn and grow with each new task she is faced with growing up, waiting for the day where she may possibly reunite with them once again, and the day where she confronts the person who tore her family apart. I enjoyed, "growing up' with Hilary and the other characters, as the story seems to begin anew each time a character is introduced, they each have their own quirks, as well as weaknesses revealed throughout the story.
Kaleidoscope has essentially changed or helped me see my view on the way I handle conflicts not only in my life, but in others lives as well. I'd recommend this book to those who love tragic, affectionate, and dramatic story lines, with a twist that wraps up the story in a subtle, yet decorative way. View 1 comment. Mar 14, Lynai rated it liked it Shelves: own-a-copy. Kaleidoscope revolves around three sisters, Hilary, Alexandra, and Megan, who were separated while they were still kids.
In my opinion, the whole plot revolves around the life of Hilary and her depressing and solitary existence while the other two main characters — Alexandra and Megan — were just add-ons to make the story more cohesive. It was supposed to be touching and emotional but I do not find it powerful enough to move me to tears. In fact, it was kind of expected, in the way Danielle Steele frames her story where she leaves some hints here and there.
No big shock there, man. Or maybe this is not supposed to be a suspense story. This is not to say, though, that I hated it.

Kaleidoscope is still a very interesting story. I love how Danielle Steel created each of her characters, including Sam, Solange, John Chapman, Margarita, even the dancer Sasha, with such depth and clarity. I love the contrast between the three lead characters except that maybe she has made them too predictable for my taste.
Kaleidoscope is an easy read. I finished it in one night under the light of a rechargeable lamp because of a blackout. It is a good read before one goes to sleep. Because the final lesson of the story is, All is well that ends well.

Travel book review: 'Kaleidoscope City: A Year in Varanasi'
This is one of my favourite books by Danielle Steele Was actually getting bored of her writing style when I stumbled upon this one. But once I started it,I was totally engrossed into the way its story was enfolding, it being so gripping and heart wrenching at times that i could finally keep it down only once I had read the happy ending it so truly deserved.

The eldest Hilary This is one of my favourite books by Danielle Steele The eldest Hilary is the only one who is old enough to understand the loss that has happened and the way their lives would change.

I don't know how I feel about these types of books - if they do no harm or in fact, are harmful because they take serious things and kind of make them unreal. And there's always a happy e My father just sent me this book, yesterday. And there's always a happy ending - love conquers all.
