I love Jeffrey Archer’s writings from my engineering days, when I first read the absolutely masterly “First Among Equals”. I read several more of his books with great delight. My reading habits moved on, but recently when I was paying the bill at Landmark, I just picked up ‘Only Time Will Tell’ upon impulse.
Set in England between WW-I and WW-II, it captures the pre-internet era, and captures the under-privileged travails of lead character Harry Clifton as he grows up across the school, then to college, falls in love and then the climax with the intensity so typical of Jeffrey Archer. Interestingly, this book has been launched in India and some other countries even before it has hit the shelves in UK, which has been set for May 12!
It took me just a day and half to finish this off. Very captivating. Jeffrey, you’ve earned a reader back.
