    The Clifton Chronicles is Jeffrey Archer’s most ambitious work in four decades as an international best-selling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the chilling words, ‘I was told that my father was killed in the war’. But it will be another twenty years before Harry discovers how his father really died, which will only lead him to question: who was his father?

    Not only is the story line thin, the same thin story is told from each main characters perspective. The characters are also one dimensional and not believable.

    What a waste of listners time!

  • Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine

    Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper provides a meticulously researched account of the brilliant calculations, secret deals, and occasionally treacherous maneuverings that led to the Clintons' return to political prominence. In the 12 years since the Clintons left the White House, they have gone from being virtually penniless to multi-millionaires, and are arguably the most popular politicians in America - respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike.

    What would have made Clinton, Inc. better?

    An Editor and Publisher with integrity.Perhaps if Mr Halper tried to base his book on real evidence and not on hearsay, his book might show some insight. But then one will still have to deal with him being a psychic, who knows what the Clinton's think and feel. Mr Halper is more suited to writing a Soapy than an Biograhy.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A biography written by Mr Robert A. Caro> I would also like to suggest to Mr Halper that he also reads a book by Mr Caro, to enable him to see the standards required to write a biography.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Laughter and disgust.


    Any additional comments?

    In American courts hearsay is not allowed, why does the American public allow it in their public forums?
