The second in the series was much better than the first installment. It was less biography and more story. It built in its direction and suspense. You had a better idea of where the book was going in this installment.
It was more story than biography. The first in the series was slow and gave too much time in building character. This, the second in the series, has story and plot, and so much more to entertain the listener. I rate it much higher than the first.
As the book and story builds, you get a lot of chapters that keep you wanting more information and story about the characters. It is like an unfolding of a good soap opera. there is always a story line that keeps you interested and wanting more.
I dont know about sitting through this whole book (11 hours or so...) in one sitting, but it was interesting enough that every time I got a chance, I listened to more, to get a little more story...
Advice given to me by a friend of mine who read the whole series, was to 'stick with it'...I have, ....and the second book in the series is much better than the first, and I am glad to say, I will continue to read the series. It is all based on the fact that I enjoyed the second book so much more than the first.
Another gripping installment of the Clifton chronicles. I never talk out loud to my audio books but found myself doing so with this one as the plot twisted and turned. Once again I will be immediately be buying the next book so I can find out what happens next to Harry Clifton et al!
to sell books, he obviously has to write books that don't end so he can sell the next one. if he were good enough an author his books could stand alone and would sell based on authorship.
I most enjoy reading spiritual books to nourish my soul; psychology books to enhance my profession; & psych thrillers for fun escapism.
This is my third book by Jeffrey Archer, my second in the present series. And boy am I hooked, something that I've rarely experienced with a single author (with the exception of certain classical writers). Narration continues to be spot on.
I have never been disappointed reading or listening to anything written by Jeffrey Archer. This is the second book in a series and both have been truly outstanding.
I loved it. I couldn't put it down. I especially liked the way it went back and forth between characters and years and brought the whole story together. very very entertaining. the readers were excellent vividly bringing in the characters personalities and the feeling of emotion and action , Bravo
