I immensely enjoyed the first six in this series, but found this final one to be hurried. There was too much covered too quickly when compared to the earlier books. I think I would have enjoyed it more if this one was broken down into two…Read moreRead more of this comment

This is the seventh and final volume of the Clifton Chronicles. A tear-jerking ending to a really good series. Not quite the Forsyte Saga but kudos to Archer for the chutzpah to write a series covering a century.

Great wrap up to a wonderful series. I just finished the last of the Clifton Chronicles. Seven books in the series and each one a very fast moving detailed read - until book 7 where Jeffrey Archer seemed to feel the need to make it…Read moreRead more of this comment

This book showed that sometimes there can be one too many books in a series. I waited for each book in the Clifton Chronicles to arrive on the shelves. This one was a disappointment. I might go so far as to say that it was a relief that…Read moreRead more of this comment
Archer is a natural story teller and has as usual a good plot. Like the way the whole series is divided up into "chapters" on different characters. Enjoyed the section on Bellmarsh where his personal experiences came through. I…Read moreRead more of this comment

Sorry to see the Clifton Chronicles end, I wish Jeffery Archer would have chosen to end with a post script of a particular character getting her just rewards for being such an odious personality. I enjoyed the book(s) I guess it had to…Read moreRead more of this comment
Am I addicted to Jeffrey Archeritis? Maybe I'm in denial, but the evidence is clear. Having read every JA, including the short stories with unexpected ironic O. Henry endings, the prison books, and the itchiness awaiting releases of his…Read moreRead more of this comment
