I think this is a great book for all types of people. Sterling, the main character , had unforgetable encouters and helped the lives of several people. This book made me think of how life would be like after death and how good you should be to others. This story took place near Christmas. I would recomend reading it towards the end of the year. I recommend this book to everyone.

HE SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING is a good - not great - whimsical Christmas story. I read a few of Mary Higgins Clark's novels several years ago and enjoyed them. This collaboration with her daughter is not up to par with that earlier work, but it's still entertaining. It was a nice stocking stuffer gift.
Sterling Brooks has been waiting outside Heaven's gate for many years and is given a chance to go back to Earth and help a sad little girl, to make up for his indifference to others throughout his life.
The girl, Marissa, has been without her father and grandmother since Christmas, the year before. What Marissa doesn't know is that they had to go into the witness protection program because of something they witnessed after entertaining (they are singers) at a Christmas party thrown by mobster brothers. Sterling's job is to find a way to remove the threat separating Marissa from her dad and grandmother - not an easy task, but easier when you've got a few heavenly tricks up your sleeve.
HE SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING is short, sweet, amusing, sometimes a bit silly but altogether a decent story that can appeal to all ages. It's not particularly memorable, but it's a pleasant way to spend a cold winter's afternoon.

He Sees You When You're Sleeping is a light holiday suspense about a man, Sterling who is in heaven's waiting room and his journey to gain his entrance in. Sterling is sent to young Marissa to help her out in a sticky situation involving her family and the mob. Marissa's father and grandmother are sheltered in the witness protection program and Marissa cannot bear Christmas without them. This story is not meant to be heavy by any means. The plot could have definitely been developed more.

The basis for this novel is excellent. I had high hopes as Clark hooked me at the beginning with the plot. However, throughout the book I would tell my husband, "I bet xyz is going to happen next." And sure enough it would.

... This is not intended to be a heavy read. It is a light and breezy holiday tale. With this in mind, the book fills the bill of a light, quick holiday read quite well. Who needs a big, heavy read during the hectic holiday season? I need a light escape. On that note:
Sterling Brooks has spent nearly half a century as a bench warmer outside of heaven. He never did anything good enough to gain admission, but it seems that he mustn't have done anything bad enough to have to go the other way either. His sins were sins of omission. He didn't notice what needed to be done, thus he did not do it. Those on high decide to give him a chance to redeem himself. He is sent back to earth, to find someone who needs his help, and to help them.
Upon his return to earth, he starts looking for who needs help, when he stumbles across the person who he knows almost immediately is THE person whom he was sent to help. He actually learns to see the plight of others, and learns to care.
It is a cute, well spun tale. If you need a holiday distraction, this could well be it.

It was a great story. The mother and daughter team of writers have done it again. Crafted a good story that made you care about the characters and kept your attention from first to last page.

Format: Hardcover
The book begins with Sterling Brooks. He didn't lead an exemplary life-he was too self-absorbed to ever really think about anyone else or make a commitment to the woman he loved. On the other hand though, he did have some good character traits. His actual misdeeds were few-his were sins of omission, but not comission.
It is just a few days before Christmas. For about 46 years, Sterling is lingering in the celestial waiting room outside the heavenly gates. He is awaiting summons from the Heavenly Council. Will he be deemed fit for entrance into heaven? At last the day comes and the council settles on a test for Sterling-he will be sent back to earth and given a real opportunity to help someone else as he never has before.
Sterling Brooks will find himself in Manhattan, at the skating rink in Rockefeller Center. Among the skaters is a heartbroken seven-year-old named Marissa, and as Sterling soon realizes, it is she he has been sent to help. Marissa's sadness comes from her separation from the father she adores greatly, and her sparkling grandmother who is owner of a popular restaurant. Both have been forced into the Witness Protection Program because two mobsters, the Badgett brothers, have put a price on their heads
to prevent their testifying against an arson case.
I enjoyed the short book as a whole, and love Mary Higgins Clark's writing a lot.

I am an avid fan of Mary Higgins Clark, but I would love to have the money back that I spent on this bomb. It would certainly have been nice to know ahead of time that I was purchasing a book more fit for my 9-year-old. It was a terrific idea for a story, but the writing was so juvenile that I had a very hard time finishing the book. I find that I'm feeling a little cheated by relying on the author's name as a promise of a good read. Perhaps if I stick with Mary and skip the books written by the duo, I might have better luck feeling like it was worth the price.
