A thoroughly absorbing tale. Some delightfully humorous Courtroom scenes. A well constructed story that I had difficulty putting down!
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.
What can i say but a real twist in the tale, very difficult to stop listening even when others wanted to talk to you. You just could not wait to switch back on.
It also shows how someone from a disadvantaged illitetate background can turn their own life around when shown another way.
Well worth a read, it is not too long as this audio book really keeps your attention and when the end does come you want to listen again to bits you have forgotten.

I am truly impressed! Jeffrey Archer really isn?t someone I would ever have considered listening to in the past but having seen such a high number of great reviews within days of its release and hearing such great feedback from my colleagues I got bitten by the bug and simply had to download! Ok so he?s no Tolstoy, but he had me hooked right from the off and it was wonderfully narrated.
I normally only ever listen to books when going to bed and am completely addicted so won?t even think of retiring without my iPod close at hand. That is until now.... Over the weekend facing a particularly untidy kitchen that I just couldn?t put off any longer and wanting to know what happened next in A Prisoner of Birth I decided I should try combining the 2. I never thought I?d hear myself say this but I have never enjoyed household chores so much in my life. When I?d got the kitchen looking somewhere close to respectable I actually found myself wanting to do more as I didn?t want to stop listening. I ended up cleaning parts of the kitchen I didn?t even know existed! I?ve spent a large part of today thinking about what other jobs I might tackle when I get home! My only concern now (other than the thought that I really should get out more!) is what I listen to next to keep up this momentum!

Well crafted story, insights into prison life interesting. Archer is a master craftsman. Wont disappoint.
I don't write reviews, this book is worthy of changing that. Great book and great narration. Cannot recommend highly enough. Enjoy.
