So good! Great piece of fiction! I started out in audio because Richard Armitage narrates. I love him. Wasn‘t too keen on his Russian accents here but still he‘s great to listen to. Finished the last 40% in book format. (I had to return to my work from home office so my commute is only to my dining room)

It was an amazing plot set by Jeffrey Archer, one of the finest storyteller (I have been a huge fan). The best thing I liked about the book is the magnificent details exploring the politics of countries like Russia, Britain and America. The climax was not at all what I expected but it was simply appalling.
Although I was looking for something to justify the depiction of two lives and it was nowhere.
Verdict : Enjoy the depiction.

Seven hours to go on this 9+ hour journey and finished book 1.

I was a bit confused near the end, and I certainly did not foresee that ending—although I should have if I‘d thought about it. I was so engrossed in the story to see how it resolved. An enjoyable and rather fast-past read.

On to my next read! One more physical book, Look Alive Twenty-Five by Janet Evanovich, before I switch to audiobooks.

LiteraryinLawrence Hope the travel goes smoothly and the books are good company! Are you in some sort of sleeper space? It looks cool and futuristic! 5y
wanderinglynn @LiteraryinLititz thank you ☺️ And I wish! That‘s just my travel pillow and the seatback monitor display of the flight path. I‘m on Virgin Atlantic, so their color scheme involves purplish lights. 5y
Crazeedi Yes I didn't see the end coming either! I just thought it was a unique way to construct a story. Glad you enjoyed! Safe travels Lynn! 5y

Sitting at SeaTac waiting to head to London for my birthday adventure! Kindle & Audible are loaded, plus I have the tagged paperback as well as a couple others because this is how I travel. 😉😂

So far I‘m really enjoying the tagged. Almost 1/2 through & I have no idea how it‘s going to turn out.

Great first day of the year. Finished a book. Took a nap. Started the tagged book. And took a nice long walk, which is my #holidaytradition on New Year‘s Day. Luckily, the rain has held off until later.

Book Review: Heads You Win by Jeffery Archer
I've read a lot many of Mr. Archer's works so I had high hopes from this one, but I was left dissatisfied, disappointed and kind of confused with the ending. While the storytelling and the paradigm on which the books operates upon is brilliant and the story is pretty engrossing the the final chapters, the ending ruins what could've been a groundbreaking way to tell a story.
My rating: 3.4/5

It's been a while since I've read a Jeffrey Archer book. I always enjoy his storytelling style. This one was a bit different, because there were two parallel stories, of two different versions of the same person. I liked this novel, but I wasn't as satisfied with the twist at the end as I have been with his previous stories.

Shamzi I agree, up until the last few pages it was very enjoyable. The ending was so abrupt, it didn't make sense to me! 5y

🌟🌟🌟
This was a typical Jeffrey Archer book, fast paced with enough twist and turns to keep you engaged. His books are more about the story development rather than it's characters which is fine if it runs on a good pace. The only problem with this one is the ending, the end didn't make any sense at all. The last 10 pages where a big reveal was to happen were very confusing. 3 stars because of the bad ending.

An interesting 'sliding doors' concept that asks how big are the decisions you make at the fork in the road? Or will you end up back at the same point? A classic Jeffrey Archer tale - politics, formidable foes, love, business and intrigue that will keep the pages turning.

I really liked this one. A boy and his mother in Russia have a chance to leave and flip a coin. From there chapters go back and forth following what would have happened with both choices. Really cool structure.

Jeffery Archer‘s in a photograph are much closer than they appear. Much louder as well... 😂😂😂 Archer talks like the politician he was. He speaks in sound bites, he plays the audience. He paced the stage instead of sitting as he was supposed to. The signing line was so long it had to be wrapped around the grounds then in on itself but it was a great session and throughly enjoyable - he‘s certainly the consummate storyteller and performer!

Day 16 - #retelling #anewchapter

Just finished reading this book. I enjoyed it but the ending was strange. I think Jeffrey Archer is a great storyteller but I looked to see what others thought of the ending. I also found out that this book may be a retelling of Kane and Able and Where The Crow Flies, two books previously written by Archer. I haven‘t read those books but some readers are angry of the book not advertised as such. How would u feel?

B00KW0RM_78 I love Jeffrey Archer. Kane and Able is one of my all-time favorite books, so I had high hopes for this book. I enjoyed the premise of the story being told from alternating time lines. However, I too found the ending very confusing. It really ruined the book for me and I was really disappointed. 6y
EadieB @B00KW0RM_78 I know! I feel the ending was a let down! So is it true that this book is similar to those 2 books? 6y
B00KW0RM_78 I‘ve only read Kane and Able. It‘s similar that the story is told from different POVs, but the end brings the story back together beautifully—you finally see how each character has impacted the life of the other. The characters in Kane and Able have stayed with me since I first read it almost 20 years ago. 6y

EadieB @B00KW0RM_78 I‘ll have to read Kane and Able and see what I think. 6y
B00KW0RM_78 @EadieB You‘ll have to let me know what you think—ENJOY!! 6y

Entertaining and fun, even if it‘s a little predictable at times. It‘s a ‘sliding doors‘ scenario where the story takes the reader on two journeys, one set in London and the other set in New York. It‘s an interesting concept. I did get a little confused at times, trying to keep up with which country I was in and who was who. The ending is unusual and I was left thinking about it for a while afterwards. An enjoyable and worthwhile read.

1968: a Russian boy escapes from the Soviet Union on a boat, after the KGB murders his father. The timeline splits at this point - one boat heads to America and the other to England. We follow the dual timelines of Alex/Sasha through 3 decades until the final denoument back in Saint Petersburg.
This was a gripping story with great characters and, at times, very clever writing, but the ending was a total cop out and very dissatisfying. 🌟🌟🌟

This book was intriguing, enjoyable, but the ending was not what I expected. A man and his mother escaping the Soviet Union had to make a choice, which crate to get into, the one to New York or the one to London . The story then follows two lines, one where he went to New York, one where he went to London . All Archers books are entertaining and readable. The ending just didn't sit with me. Any way I give this 3.5⭐️

Andrew65 Sounds interesting premise. 6y
