From Publishers Weekly

Packed with Steel's trademark dense plotting and incidents featuring everything from sexual abuse and infidelity to car crashes and impossible relatives, her 32nd novel (after Vanished ) is set in California's plush Marin County. Page Clarke, devoted wife of Brad and mother of Allyson and Andy, finds her golden life shattered when 15-year-old Allyson sneaks off with friend Chloe to meet two boys. In a subsequent head-on collision, one boy is killed, Chloe is seriously injured and Allyson lapses into a coma. Page can't reach Brad, who confesses when he comes home that he is having an affair. Stunned and hurt, Page keeps a vigil at Allyson's bedside while also coping with needy seven-year-old Andy and an ambivalent husband who can't decide whether to stay or leave. Her only support comes from Chloe's father, Trygve Thorensen, who has been the primary caretaker for his kids since their mother divorced him. Other plot twists include a visit from Page's self-indulgent, neurotic mother and her sister, and a secret concerning the driver of the other car in the accident. While not drawn in much depth, the characters are believable; Trygve in particular is likable and nurturing. The ending is predictable but pleasant, bound to delight Steel's fans. One million first printing; national ad/promo; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club dual main selection.

From Booklist

Novels fall as easily from Danielle Steel's pen as concertos fell from Telemann's and overtures from Rossini's--and for much the same reason: she owns a formula that offers very few surprises but a great many pleasures. This time her heroine is confronted with her 15-year-old daughter's car accident and the revelation of her sexy husband's waywardness. The other key relationships are with her just-turned-seven son and the father of her daughter's less-badly-injured girlfriend. The secret to Steel's success--and this is what her sneering middle- and high-brow critics miss--is her ability to write simply and generously about love. Not romantic love, but the warm, trusting love that finds its own way to romance. Critics sneer because they want something more complex, broken, or seedy, but Steel is truer to the heart of early, medieval romance and perhaps to the heart of ordinary people (assuming women are people, too). Here, anyway, readers will recognize from their own lives the fretting weariness of hospital vigils, the exposed vulnerability of young children, and the aggressive self-justification of a husband trapped in a vortex of guilt and self-pity. A touching, satisfying romance sung, for the most part, in perfect tune. Stuart Whitwell

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is about love and loyalty and trust. 9. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
With death, accidents, and broken marriages occurring all over the world, why can't they happen all at once to one family in a small town? In the Accident, the author, Danielle Steele decides to put these problems together. I really enjoyed this book.
One reason I liked this book was the scene when Brad got to the hospital because Page knew that something was wrong and that he was not where he said he was going to be. He was at the hospital in one hour and should have taken six hours, but he didn't so she was confused. This scene surprised me because at first the author had them as a happily married couple, but then I realized they were not happy because he cheated on her with another woman. I guessed where he was, and what he was doing, and I was right. He was not honest to her, and, at the moment she needed him the most, he was with another woman. I would have been really angry if that happened to me. He betrayed Page, and her trust and love. He lied to her for a long time, and she never knew what was happening. Situations like this happen all the time and are very common. The character I disliked the most was the husband, Brad Clarke. He was not around when the accident happened to his daughter Allyson because he was off with another woman. He never cared about going to see her in the hospital and was never supportive to Page. I would think that he would want to be with his family, but he never was. He did not care if anyone ever knew where he was. He was breaking up his marriage and his family. This reminds me of when I was younger because my dad did the something similar to my family and me. I understand how Page felt because I had the same feelings. I felt hatred and anger toward him but I still felt love for him.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tragically written, yet a decent story nevertheless 27. September 1998
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a man, Danielle Steel may appear to be somewhat of a mystery to other male readers; however, for me, she offers a nice diversion from other novels which are more literary and intricate. Ms. Steel usually offers a nice easy story told simply and is readable in a relatively short period of time. And while I have only read a handful of Ms. Steel's works, i.e. "Zoya," "Jewels," "The Ranch," and "The Ghost" they have all had interesting characters and plot developments. "Accident" falls short on both counts offering, at best, a mindless read. 'Accident" tells the story of Allyson, a teen-age girl who tragically ends up in a car accident while on a date with a older high school boy, her best friend Chole and her date. Both Allyson and Chole lie to their parents about going on this date as to not be met with disapproval so the shock of the deception as well as the accident is enormous. Allyson ends up in a coma resulting from the accident and Ms. Steel depicts not only on how the accident changes the life of Allyson but changes the life of her mother, Page and her marriage as well. There are no surprises here and the end is predictable almost from the beginning. More troubling then the precdictability of the story, though, is the writing. Although one does not read Danielle Steel for her prose one should not have to be subjected to the innumerable sentences beginning with the word, "but." This is plain sloppiness and eventhough Ms. Steel writes for the masses, better judgement should be used. I like Danielle Steel and I will continue to read her as she offers a different slice of the pie from other authors out there; and, I enjoy every now and again just sitting back and reading a good story. Unfortunately, "Accident" only offers an uneventful story line with characters we really do not care about using, on top of that, poor writing.
