Death of Shedney Sheldon

One of the top story writer Shedney Sheldon died on Jan 30. He was 89 years of age. This is very bad news for all the fatansy lovers. Though I am not a severe and passion reader of novels and stories I have a strong reason to post this blog. About 4 or 5 years ago my father brought a novel called "Master of the Game" written by him and translated by a Nepali writer, Tej Rai. Then we all family became fan of the writing skills and the imagination. We all have read that novel. Every time you read that novel it makes you read even more. I couldn't explain its importance.

The novel starts with the dangerous journey of Jemi who travels from Europe to South Africa in search of diamond. His close black friend Banda and him together goes in a mission to steal the diamonds from Bhander Marb who claims all the diamonds of Jemi making a forged document. They becomes successful in doing so and he builds the largest business in Cape Town. After the death of Jemi, his daughter Kate becomes the world's number one business woman and becomes the "Master of the Game".

That novel is the mixture of adventure, love, romance, sacrifice, bravery, politics, passion, art, skill, strategy and so on. I think being in Nepali made it more fluence to understand and get the real taste of story.
