If book 3 of this so called trilogy actually had an ending. Ridiculous. Save your money but more importantly your time!
Anger. No ENDING to the 3 boom series.
I would only recommend this if they were a JA Fan. For anyone else, no, it has few redeeming factors as a novel.
The only interesting factor is that without knowing the Author in advance, it is clearly Mr Archer. Every one of his books consists of some contrived connection that is about as likely as snow on the Sun.
Least interesting? Most of the book!
I listened right to the end; will not buy the next volume, I could almost write it myself since it follows the usual JA formula.
Archer has done it again. I have read several books and Jeffrey Archer always delivers a good read. Whether it’s a stand-alone or book in a series, Jeffrey Archer keeps the reader’s attention. This book could stand on its own; although it is the second in a series. It has unusual twists and turns throughout the plot and keeps the reader wondering what will happen next. I found myself always cheering for Harry and Emma, regardless of whatever plight they were in.
As always with his books, I have already looked up the expected date for the next book to be out and all I can say is … please, Mr. Archer, HURRY!
If you were worried at all that the first book was not as fast paced as you would like fear not. Sins of the Father takes it up a notch.
I would listen to this again. There is so much more to Jeffrey Archers books than "what will happen next". After reading the first book in this series and listening to this second book I have started to feel a connection with the characters. Every re-read or re-listen reveals something that was missed before.
I've never read anything that compares to Jeffrey Archers books . I just keep coming back for more.
Their narration brought the scenes to life.
I wouldn't change it. The title is thought provoking. As with any book the title is part of what seduces one to read or bypass a story.
I am anxiously awaiting book three.
Again the characters are uncomplicatedly on the side of the good or the opposing sleazy guys. But the interesting character of Jack is missing. His absence is partially compensated by the heroine's powerful, aristocratic American relatives who are on the right side but not quite so good in heart. I had to have this after the first but I am not so hungry for the next one.
I was very interested in the story and characters after book # 1. However, book # 2 dramatically takes all to a whole new level. I am now truly hooked and can't wait for # 3. A masterful story teller combined with an outstanding narrator.
I know he writes soap operas and that every book is exactly like the last one, but I don't care. I find his books completely entertaining. This one was no exception.
There are many audiobooks that I would read over again, all different in nature and character. I would put The Sins of the Father and it's predecessor Only Time Will Tell in the top 6.
The characters remained true to their natures from the first book. These are people one not only likes, but comes to know as friends. Rooting for them to triumph over circumstances is as natural as wishing the best in the world for a loved friend or family member.
Perhaps the fun of seeing Emma and Mr. Ginsberg triumph over Sefton Jelks. But all of the scenes were wonderful.
Yes, I could have done that. However, to do so would have deprived me of the joy of the book over a few sittings when I had to wait for nearly a year for this sequel. Now that's it's over, I find myself on pins and needles awaiting the last book of the trilogy!
As authors go, Jeffery Archer has never faild to acquit himself. He writes well, knows his characters and takes the time to develop them, and he has the ability to write scenes that are very satisfying to the reader. Even when one is left hanging to wait for the next book, one doesn't mind the discomfort because the wait will have been worth the time.
