5.0 out of 5 stars Impressions that last 5 April 2006
By Ramu S
Jeffry Archer appears to have an uncanny insight into the minds of readers. He knows what they want and has enough material to sustain their interest. And his books sell in.
He established a rapport with his very first book, Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less, which hit the stands some quarter of a century back. He then grew in reputation with Kane And Abel and acquired eminence with First Among Equals, a treatise on the British political system. The journalist fraternity in India had then reasons to appreciate The Fourth Estate, a book relevant to the prevailing atmosphere in the country then.
A former all England sprinter who turned politician, graduated to the British Cabinet and then was elevated to a Life Peer, Archer has even lived the role of one of his main characters in First Among Equals before spending time in jail for perjury. He has certainly experienced life at various levels. But it is as an author of over a dozen novels and collection of spicy, enthralling short stories that he will always be remembered. And this reputation is what he has set out to sustain and enhance in his latest offering False Impression.
False Impression has all the ingredients which make for an Archer special. It is, however, a book with a difference. It is an old-fashioned story with modern trappings. An ancestral home in England with a wealth in property but impoverished for cash, is where the story makes a beginning and fittingly it ends there too. In between, it takes the reader criss-crossing the Atlantic, with the main character Anna Petrescu even experiencing the most modern of terror attacks while trapped in the WTO towers on 9/11.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book leaves a lasting impression..... 13 Mar 2006
By Dan
I could not wait to read Jeffrey Archer's new book when I heard he was releaseing his first novel in some time. I've read all of his writings and have always been entertained by his ability to capture a scene and generate a story that excites and thrills. So please do not be put off by the minority who have shunned this book and go with the majority. False Impression is a well paced, well written, well researched and highly entertaining read that does well to keep the reader turning the pages and unable to put down. Jeffey Archer is back to what he is respected for, and that is writing darn good books. I'm looking foreard to his next publication which sees him return to short stories. Until then, enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars False Impression 3 Jun 2006
By Dr. Babus Ahmed VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have never read Archer before, but was astounded by his ability to story tell. He probably is one of the best authors I have read. The tale was accurate, enlightning and intriguing-I couldn't put it down. If you have an interest in art, this is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars False Impression - jeffrey archer 24 May 2008
Good fast paced story that really gets you gripped early. Has the added drama of being set at the time of the 9/11 disaster. Main characters interesting and well described.
Well worth the read

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Light Read 25 Mar 2010
I hadn't read a Jeffrey Archer book for many years but was given this as a gift and was pleasently surprised. He hasn't lost his ability to tell a good story. Ok this is no work of literary genius but the tale moves along at a fairly fast pace and the descriptions of the events around 9/11 are good. The story centers around a corrupt banker and an art dealer and involves the FBI former eastern block criminals and a Japanese steel magnet. This is one of those books that you can read in 2 days which is just as well as it is difficult to put down.

Jeffrey Archer at his best! Very hard to put this book down until completed. Wonderful twists in the story keep you totally absorbed in the story. A must for lovers of Jeffrey Archer's writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good. 27 April 2009
By Mizz F
It was a good read and yes it can get confusing but most good novels do. You have to follow the plot and if you keep up with it, it is a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat a formula but a good read 2 April 2006
As a holiday book that was light and engaging 20 pages at a time, with a few twists along the way I'm pleased I bought this at the airport.
Whilst very much a structured storyteller Archer has regained his early powers to draft a corker of a yarn. Whilst a bit like a Jack Higgins, nothing that fancy and one wonders a good bit of cut and paste I did enjoy it.
The end was weak with no real suprise or need for explanation of anything too much along the way.
