I've ignored Jeffrey Archer for years. Before this brilliant series of books I think the last one I read was First Among Equals, so you can see how long I am talking about. I got part one of the Cliftons for free on my iPhone and I have been gripped ever since. I couldn't wait for part five to come out, thinking this was the concluding chapter. So what happens - I get to the end of the book only to find there is to be another part but not until 2016! Grrrr and double grrrrrrrr!

I'm not really complaining because I don't want to say goodbye to these characters yet and, after all, it is still 1970 in the story so plenty more to come I reckon. In short these have been terrific to read. I'm one of those readers who hates books where you have to read the same page several times to understand what it was all about. I'm not stupid, honest! It's just that there are novels that are too complicated to waste your life reading. Archer's novels fit into a much easier reading category though, and I am grateful for that. I like to rattle through a story for pure pleasure, not to have my intellectual taste buds tickled (I know that makes no sense, but never mind!)

I will look forward with keen interest for the next part and hope that the standard is maintained. I am sure it will be.

Jeffrey Archer has again succeeded in writing a superb novel, I was unable to put it down for a second. I fell in love with Harry and the entire Clifton family from the very beginning and continue to be absorbed into their lives and adventures. How will I manage to wait until 2016 for the next wonderful instalment.

Another brilliant read in the Clifton chronicles ending as ever on a cliff hanger albeit an obvious one. My main complaint is that it is too short why couldn't it have been a bit longer? Now we have to wait a whole year not fair but brilliant marketing!! Having said that the story continues to enthrall.

I patiently wait for the next instalments of the Clifton Chronicles knowing that I will read it all too quickly. Jeffrey Archer is a writer that always grabs my attention from page 1. Thank you.

I enjoyed this book as I had the other Clifton chronicles. However, I was a little disappointed about a few grammatical errors in the first few chapters. The proof reader needs shooting. However, this book even bought a tear to my eye when Seb visited Washington and the results of that visit. Very well written and I found it hard to put down once I got into it. I would have given it higher makes had I not been put off by the errors in the first few chapters that looked like a computer with predictive text had been used and we have all sent a text where the word has been changed and now the sentence reads wrong. Other than that a good book and I look forward to seeing what transpires in the next .

Jeffrey Archer books I nearly always enjoy. This one was very enjoyable. In the Clifton Chronicles I loved book one. Was not sure about book two. Then Three and This one picked up the pace again. I do think to really understand who is who and how it all fits together you do need to read the first book. This book is stand alone but it does help to understand the back ground. I do not want to spoil the story by giving any of the plot away, but I have to say that I still do not quite grasp why it was so important to keep the "incident" described in the first chapters a secret. I found it unbelievable that years after the event it would be a resigning matter if it got out. Still maybe I missed something. That is my only quibble and lets face it with a lot of books you have to suspend reality to get full enjoyment out of plots. Good read, that swings along. Enjoy

Part 5 of the 'Clifton Chronicles' opens with a restaging of the final cliffhanging moments from part 4. Archer continues to keep this wonderful series fizzing along with a sure hand. He obviously enjoys writing these characters, especially flawed hero and socialist Sir Giles Barrington,as well as making many of the villians tories....Archer is plainly having fun turning assumptions about his own life and career on its head and using his undoubted knowledge of court procedure and boardroom dealing to the fore.The young conservative MP for Louth even asks a question in the commons in this book,,,,,now I wonder who he might have been in 1970? This is Archer doing what he does best...writing entertaining, page turning fiction with another cliff hanger ending.
Originally muted as a five novel series spanning the 20th century, 'Mightier than the Sword' only takes in the years 1964-1970, so it looks like there is still plenty more intrigue and double dealing to come,,,GOOD!!

Why did I get the impression all the way through the book I had read it before, wonder whether he now just writes for a few million every year as it can't take long to write. Sorry Jeffrey it's how I felt and me a massive Archer fan!
