Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps. His burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: "The Biggest Barrow in the World". Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies. But in Jeffrey Archer's expert hands, it becomes an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century, as Charlie follows a thread of love, ambition, and revenge to fulfil the dream his grandfather inspired.
"Monumentally gripping...a compulsive epic." (Mail on Sunday)

Archer is great
what a load of rubbish were is the story
I do not know if the person that narrated this story has read the story because half the story is miss and as it is narrated it miss a lot of the important parts
the large part that was left off the narration of the story I would say about half the story is missing and it butchers the story the narration is rubbish
I am a member of this web site and have purchased many books from here this would be the most badly narrated book I have come across. I would like my money back as I do not pay for half a story
