I very much enjoyed this book. The Author is an amazing story teller and dose a great job of introducing you to the subjects of his novel. The Author Leaves you wanting to know more and more with every new revelation during the course of the story. I felt transported in time to a different era and learned a few things about the culture and customs of the people of England during the early part of the last century. While simplistic in some ways the simplicity is welcome as its a relaxing, enjoyable story, I found it rather intriguing. I can't wait to get on to the next book.
Yes, the good guys or just that good guys and the bad guys bad, but I like that fact. There is nothing wrong with heroes and villains in a well told story.
I was not sure that I could connect with this story . The main character rose from a difficult background with hard work, God given intelligence, a bit of assistance & patience which drew me in.
Full of interesting characters, and an interwoven plot that draws you into another time and another place.
Not my normal genre, but a story full of human emotion.
I have read all tue Clifton chronicles as soon as the books where released. I can only say it was a real pleasure listening to the first one again and an extra dimension to the written word.
Tue next one will be downloaded shortly.
mr. Archer is a very good storyteller as well as very entertaining and I love the time period set in this book
I like complex stories such as this one. I had to be on my toes to keep in touch with what was going on because it kept jumping from character to character but that made it interesting. I also enjoyed the performance, accent dialect it all made it very real and interesting. I'm looking forward to the next book.
The change of characters over time.
Most of the characters are sympathetic.
They add to the story
Old Jack. The old curmudgeon has a history.
Love the epic tone of the book, the characters, and the plot twists. Is it a classic in the making? No. But still enjoyable. Variety of points of view makes it more dramatic.
