Great listening experience;great narrator. Jeffrey Archer must never sleep as he is always writing and re-writing,in longhand,of course. Thank you, Mr. Archer, for taking your work so seriously as your readers and listeners certainly reap the rewards.
Great novel that sets the stage for what surely will be a collention of Archer's greats. Loosely autobiographical, this book gives much insight into the author himself. Warm, heartbreaking, and enjoyable. Can't wait for book 2.
This was a good story of how a young English lad makes the most of his singing talent and brains with the help of his Mom and friends. It was interesting to hear the same situation described by the various characters. However, after the four telling I just wanted to get on with the story and forget the retelling. The ending was a little predictable and will lead in to book #2.
I finished listening to this in 2 days because I binge listened instead of rationing myself. I believe it was because I was addicted to the evilness of Hugo and finding out the next diabolical thing he'd devise to make me loathe him even more. But it's a great story all-around and performed extremely well. Like other listeners, I can't wait for Book 2. Well done!
I liked it. Like other Jeffrey Archer books, it seems very straightforward -- not a difficult read or listen. It bothered me that he was so off-base at the end of the book about a basic legal principle by injecting Miranda warnings long before they were ever used or required by the US Supreme Court. That shows a lack of basic research. But again, I can't say I didn't enjoy most of the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the narrators (like to have a female and male) Characters were very well developed. Story line flowed. Loved how all the characters were woven together. The book definitely kept my attention and I was able finish it in 2 days! I was thrilled to hear a 2 minute interview with the author at the end of the book explaining his plans for the next 4 books of this series.
I love Jeffrey Archer and have been waiting for another Cain and Abel. He has given me a new character to love with a great story that grabs you from the first line and keeps you wanting to know more until the last line. Can't wait to read the next book. A master storyteller writing his best.
This is just a plain good story of one heroic man. Entertaining, I can't wait for the next installment. BTW the narrators (which can make or break a story) were excellent. They could do different voices and accents without making your skin crawl.
Loved it so much my husband and I listened to this entire book in two marathon sittings! This is in the same league as "As The Crow Flies"! Can't wait for the next volume in the Clifton Chronicles!
