The Book I Wished For

What could I say? I loved it. The book had everything I hoped for in a plot. Great characters, great twists, legal battles, smart negotiations, background histories, a love story and a sweet revenge. I am a Dumas fan and I agree with the author that it was a challenge to write his own Count of Montecristo. But I believe Archer made a wonderful job for the modern reader. If I could say one negative thing about the book was the fact that it took me a while to warm up to Beth. I admired her loyalty, but couldn’t feel all that the author was trying to convey about her.

This book really got me in!

A thoroughly absorbing tale. Some delightfully humorous Courtroom scenes. A well constructed story that I had difficulty putting down!

Another fantastic Archer book

A great story of one losing a friend and getting accused by his murderer and then finding a way to get even.
The story is most gripping.
Well performed with excellent change of accents.

A fantastic story

I loved this book. The Best Jeffrey Archer ever. Could hardly breathe as I listened to the last chapters.
And 10 out of 10 to Roger Allam.

Worth six stars

Cling to your earphones or car stereo! This book will keep you listening. What a story and what a narrator. While listening I gave up trying to anticipate what will happen next - I was wrong every time. Well done JA
