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
Oh my goodness, this is the best book series ever! And I found it by accident! I'm a detail oriented person and the way Jeffrey Archer details the accounts of the main seven characters answers every last question I have. I was shocked at the ending and literally wanted to cry. I could not believe that he would end the book with a big fat question mark to the future of Harry's life when he had so many details previously. Man was I surprised and thrilled as I sat there in shock end the audio kept going to discover it's the 1st of a series. I immediately bought 3 credits and purchased the next book.
If the book would have stood on its own with an end.
It is like a soap with each book not finishing the story to get you to buy the rest. I bought the first one at a discount, but it isn't worth six buys to get the story.
Should sell all six for two credits.
Audio books have kept me sane through agonizing commutes.
Jeffrey Archer is an amazing story teller. The second installment in the series did not disappoint. The narration if first rate and the use of two narrators keeps it interesting. I found myself sitting in the driveway listening until my husband peaked out the window wondering if I was going to come in. Highly recommended.
This almost seems to have been written by a different author. It was so predictable and average. The first in the series was exciting and surprising. I won't be reading the third book. I even predicted the cliff hanger at the very end and don't even care if I find out what happens. Disappointing.
Say something about yourself!
I agree that the author is a very talented story teller. so much so that I finished this book in two days. I'll begin book 3 tonight, partially because the ending of "The Sins of the Father" ends with an even bigger cliff hanger than did "Only Time Will Tell".
I had an aversion the female narrators voice as she spoke for some of the minor male characters; too high pitched IMHO.
