I loved this book. Great voices. Nice to have the changes in point of view. This is the first of 5 books planned in the Clifton Chronicles -- and I await the next. Mr. Archer, did you really leave the reader hanging on the cliff?
This story has been compared by others to
Both are excellent narrators that bring life to an excellent line up of characters.
Old Jack was my favorite character. He ended up tying all of the characters in the story together.
As I said before I cannot wait for the next installment of the Clifton Chronicles!
I highly recommend this book.
Mr. Archer spins a great yarn, and nowhere has he done a better job than in the Cliftion Chronicles. I started listening on Saturday and finished on the way to work today and am sad the the book ended. I can't wait for the next edition of this saga.
As always, many unexpected twists to the story but nontheless it doesn't let you get off the car. It's a treat, and I suspect the 4 sequels will be at least as good.
I love Jeffrey Archer. This is another example of his excellent story telling. I am looking forward to the other books in this series. It ends very abruptly which is why I left out one star on the story. The narration is excellent. There is an interesting style to this story as the story is re-told several times from the viewpoint of each of the main characters. Despite the fact that this is the same story, it keeps your interest up as you hear it from different viewpoints.
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
