Archer in his element here in the political arena and family saga genre. Keeps the reader entertained by having them care about the main characters. Storytelling is an art and some writers like Archer and Harold Robbins simply have a knack for it.
Jeffrey Archer shines like a beacon to all those wannabe novelists out there who have absolute zero talent. There is a market for crud; some people will literally read anything; so every aspiring writer has a chance. The successful author writes about what he or she knows from life, so it's no wonder that Archer's tales are fully of dirty tricks and scams, lies and subterfuge. Jeffrey Archer took up the pen out of financial desperation and against all odds has found a niche market for his dubious talents. If his works can be described as potboilers, the sheer volume of his printed works to date could run a couple of power stations. If only he could have written the sort of novels that attracted Hollywood film producers, the movie rights would have made Archer a billionaire. Few people today recall who Micky Spillane was; in 50 years time Archer will be equally obscure.
Reasonably paced. The format of switching between vignettes of the key characters every few paragraphs was a little distracting.
one of the most interesting story I ever read...
Archer spins a good yarn and moves it right along. Often, however, I have the feeling of reading an outline rather than the detailed story.
