That was a pun on a lot of the book being set either in prison or in a law court. But a very intricate tale of mixed identities and 2 very different stories. The title says it all, someone born at the wrong end of town has a struggle to overcome life's hitches without education and the right background. A very good read!
Archer at his very, very best - a great story, read by a fantastic reader. Top Marks - do NOT mis it!
This one is a cracker !
Mr archer weaves a complicated story of injustice and subsequent revenge. It was thoroughly enjoyable, even addicitve and here I am again looking for another Archer best seller.
I loved this book from start to end. The reader is brilliant, the plot is original and the characters were really believable. I have listened to it four times. My Husband and my friends loved it too. I don't read many archer, but i really liked this one.
I have read and re-read many Jeffrey Archer books, this was no exception. I couldn't wait to get back to the story. It is very well narrated - well done to the chap. I would recommend this to anyone. Can't wait for the next book of Jeffrey's
This book lends itself very well to the audible format. Although I found the narrators attempts at accents irritating at first this settled part way through the book. Very enjoyable
I just loved this book. Its so clever and obviously well researched (with a bit of personal experience thrown in, no doubt!). The narration is brilliant and as much as I wanted to find out what happened in the end, I didn't want it to finish. Its a hard act to follow and I'm having difficulty choosing my next 'listen'
Firstly, I have to say that there are few that can tell a good tale like Archer, as another reviewer mentioned, Tolstoy he isn't, but a page turner he is. I quite liked this book, being a modern day take on 'The Count of Monte Cristo', but I did find it to be somewhat predictable as it progressed, and to be honest, quite stereotyped character wise. For instance, having the main character called 'Danny' who's uneducated from the East End (you get the drift) and the villains all bascially upperclass career orientated snobs, it does have the feeling of being a very well-trod formula walked many times before. Having said that, it's read well and for listening in the car on a long journey would be a good choice. Just don't expect any breaking of new ground and you won't be dissapointed.
I bought this book because of previous reviewer's recommendations. The story is fascinating and I could'nt stop listening to it - Excellently narrated.
