There is a sense of "and the moral of this story is" with this collection. There's also a heavy focus on Oxford, where Archer studied and obviously has fond memories of, and of the life of the privileged classes in general. Some tend to alienate, some are mildly amusing and others are just plain silly - The First Miracle being a case in point.
Each story is undoubtedly well written by the intelligent, articulate and literate Archer. However, I was a long way from being bowled over, as I have been by his other work.
I enjoyed this book, but I didn't think that it was up to his best standard - 'A Twist in The Tale' was better.
Nevertheless, if you like short stories, then this Jeffrey Archer collection shouldn't disappoint too much.
Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.
story "Old love"......it was like a cold refreshing drink after a long day or a superb dessert after a bland meal.As I said,this was the final story and my thoughts were thank god I'm nearly done,then.......what an enchanting story,beautifully crafted as only archer can do and with that final twist that tears at your heart strings.As I write this review,I'm going back to read that final story once again,before it goes into the bookcase
If you enjoy short stories then this is for you. Great to dip in and out of on short commutes or in your workbreak.
A marvellous collection!
