I really enjoyed this book and am thrilled that there are other installments on the horizon. It's one of those books I will likely listen to more than once (not a usual thing for me), as it was THAT enjoyable. This installment centers around Harry Clifton, whose father (a dock worker) dies in a tragic "accident", gives interesting insight into the British class system and has numerous very well developed characters. While it's not a mystery/thriller, there are plenty of mysteries, plenty of action, and lots of interesting sub plots. A great first book in this new series! Looking forward the the next installment.
I really enjoyed this book and am anxious to listed to the next installment. I am disappointed to see that there isn't a book 2 yet. The story was interesting and the narration was spot on.Hurry up with the next book,please
May Sir Jeffrey live long and write continually. I can't wait for the next in this series. The plot is arresting, the characters engaging, and the story intoxicating. It is everything I look for in fiction and the narration enhances the experience. Plan a road trip or a home improvement project and BUY this offering.
This is one of the best books I have listened to on Audible. The story is well written and the characters well developed. You love some of them and despise at least one. It is historically interesting as well. The narrator is superb - reminds me of Anthony Hopkins. The other narrator has such a small piece I barely remember her - but she certainly did not detract from the story as many narrators can do. I hated to turn it off and couldn't wait to get back to my book. It is a long book - but didn't last long enuogh. I so hated to see it end and can't wait for the sequel. I hope the same narrator reads the sequel!
This was my first Jeffrey Archer book -- what a joy it was! I enjoyed the story and characters, and look forward to the next installment. I liked the way the author first told what happened, then later explained why it happened, as well as giving the perspective of various characters. In addition to that, I loved the narrator! He has a wonderful voice, and didn't rush the material, which I sometimes find with narrators -- I never had to go back and listen to a part again just to figure out what was said. The narration was clear and thoughtful, without any annoying character voices (a pet peeve of mine). I will explore other books read by this narrator, while I wait for the next book in the Clifton Chronicles.
Great story with readers who kept you in the action. The twist and turns keep things interesting and keep you reading. Can't wait for the next book... wish I'd found this much later so it wouldn't be so long until the next. Archer is a wonderful story teller, every charector comes to life.
