Summary

This collection of 12 short stories will draw the listener into each story, whether it is "Old Love", the tale of two undergraduates at Oxford in the 30s and their bitter rivalry, which ends in a memorable love story; or "Broken Routine", which tells of an insurance claim advisor and his surprising encounter on the train home to Sevenoaks; or "Henry's Hiccup", the story of the Grand Pasha and how his plans for the most perfect honeymoon go awry.

From the Grand Pasha to a British diplomat in China, a backgammon match to a one night stand, Jeffrey Archer spins an intricate web of tales that prove he really is the master of storytelling.

This book is missing stories from the book.

I only bought this book for one story 😑 It seems to have at least 3 missing including the Century, the one I wanted.

Great for bedtime

Old love and The Chinese statue are lovely stories. The others are ok, but it's great for switching off before going to sleep.
