This book is a must listen - the narrator is superb, and if you like the Count of Monte Cristo, you'll love this. I found myself listening in the car, on walks and even at home during any spare time I had. Enjoy!
I don't get it. So many reviewers like this unimaginative book.It's just a bad rework of a good book, "The Count of Monte Cristo" This is the ONLY book that I could not bring myself to finish. I even started it over from the beginning to try and like this junk.
It is difficult to believe Archer would gave the gall to compare this to Monte Cristo. This is a bad book.
This story was interesting enough to keep me reading but a little predictable and ultimately not as satisfying as I had anticipated. Still, a good read for the average intellect.
The plot was very, very predictable. The characters were bland and 2 dimensional. A more interesting book would be the book the author could write about his own very 'sorted' life story. Check out Jeffrey Archer in Wikipedia.
