About this deal

You know in fact very early on who the central character's father is, but what keeps you reading is to discover how the author is going to weave together all the details to make an entertaining story that makes sense.

Even my old school of Merrywood was featured and as we lived in the district of Bedminster, Harry’s home in Stillhouse Lane really rang a bell with me. But then an unexpected gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys’ school, and his life will never be the same again. Jeffrey Archer hits it out of the park with this epic tale of a young boy trying, with the help of his friends and family, to make his life something no less than extraordinary. Harry would undoubtedly have disapproved, he’s such a morally upright fellow, and Deakins wouldn’t have been able to understand why anyone would want to fail an exam.They are so different from each other but are still able to find common ground and really solidify their friendship. He didn’t look that dirty to me, certainly not as dirty as Stan, and it wasn’t long before I discovered he wasn’t stupid either. This saga is the first in what is to be at least a three-book set (quite possibly more) entitled the Clifton Chronicles, centered around the character Harry Clifton.

Archer begins the series with a splendid foundation, sure to offer many offshoots in the coming books. It was launched by Jeffrey Archer himself in Bangalore, India in March 2011, as the beginning of a global book tour.This book reminded me a little of Downton Abbey and I think readers who enjoyed that series will really enjoy the clifton Chronicles.

I liked how the other characters filled into the story all the bits that Harry was blissfully unaware of. After all, when I left school I was going to captain Bristol City, or build a ship that would sail around the world. The family were all staying at our villa in Tuscany that summer when Giles took me to one side and said he needed to ask my advice. From page one I was completely caught up in this story, following an incredible cast of characters for just over 20 years in this first volume.So the yardstick being as high as it is for Jeffrey, the series is still decent and worth a one-time read. and his climb through the British public school system is going to be a delight if this first one of five is any indication. As he enters into adulthood, Harry finally learns how his father really died, but the awful truth only leads him to question, was he even his father?
