What a pity this is the last volume in this saga. Absolutely spellbinding from beginning to end. Archer is brilliant storyteller and the way he interlocks history fact with his stories is fantastic. Don't just read this volume, start the saga at the beginning and work your way thorough. BRILLIANT.

This whole series was a complete joy . Archer is referred to often as a "master storyteller" and it is a fitting description.

I got into the series around book five so I did not have to wait a year or so between books which I would have found unbearable . The entire series has a richness that I associate with Archer's books and by the end the characters are old friends.

The final book does not disappoint ; it is a wonderful conclusion and one that is perfect for curling up on the sofa and enjoying every moment. Overall it is a tale of success against adversity and love of partners and family giving strength to each other with enough surprises and twists to keep you gripped . My tears at the end were probably the greatest compliment I could pay .

Truly unforgettable . How are you going to top that Lord Archer ??

I don’t remember the year but I still remember how much of an impact my first brush with Jeffrey Archer’s brand of great fiction and storytelling had on me. During those days I was safely ensconced in the novels of Nick Carter, James Hadley Chase, Robert Ludlum and that great western fiction author Louis L’Amour. When I came across Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less by Jeffrey Archer, I still remember, I was a bit averse to a new author as I felt it would upset my reading schedule. But there was no turning back after reading the first few pages of Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less as Jeffrey Archer literally sucked me into his world of thrills and chills.

This Was a Man by Jeffrey Archer is a continuation of the Clifton Chronicles - the seventh and final book in the series - a saga that criss-crosses continents, and one in which the lives of Harry, Emma, Giles, Sebastian, Lady Virginia and others are tried and tested through friendship, betrayal, secrecy and maneuverings, and continues with all the trademark twists and turns that have made the compelling and spellbinding story of the Clifton and the Barrington families Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious work to date. This extraordinary tale begins in the backstreets of Bristol in 1919 when Harry Clifton was raised by his mother and uncle who worked for Barrington Shipping. The earlier titles in the series are: Only Time Will Tell (1919-1940), The Sins of the Father (1939-1945), Best Kept Secret (1945-1957), Be Careful What You Wish For (1957-1964), Mightier than the Sword (1964-1970) and Cometh the Hour (1970s). The series is imaginatively crafted and magnificently mounted on a sweeping scale the grandeur and intensity of which few would parallel.

This is the final installment in the Harry Clifton Chronicles and has well be worth the wait. It immediately picks up from where the last book left off and spans the years 1980s to 1990s with Harry and some of the family in their 70s! My favourite Character Lady Virginia is as devious as ever with many chapters chronicling her life. The episode with the Ming Vases is hilarious! I honestly could not put this hefty book down and at times I was even moved to tears as we find out what happens to some of our beloved characters. This book is indeed a fitting ending to one of the best series I have read in a long time!

I hadn't read any of Jeffrey Archers books although I had watched some of the dvds, so when I ordered the first in the series I thought I will see how it goes, when I read it I could not wait to read number two, then three, four five and six and seven. I am glad I started this year so I did not have to wait for the last and final book seven, I really enjoyed all of them, the only thing is how to spend my time now they are finished, hope I can find something as enthralling.

And so with book 7 Jeffrey Archer concludes The Clifton Chronicles, he has written the greatest story of our time.

This book bring the story upto date as we follow the family through another couple of decades.

Well written as you would expect from Archer I have really enjoyed the series and would recommend all of the books.

Wow.
This has all the twists and turns of the previous books in the Clifton Chronicles series and an unexpected and moving ending.
'This was a Man' takes the lives of the Clifton and Barrington families forwards and cleverly ties up all the loose ends and cliff hangers that have been dangling.
It was a ambitious project to write a series of books spanning more than sixty years, but pulled off with great aplomb.
This final book was satisfying because it truly felt like the end of a series. It was also great that fans didn't have to wait too long after the publication of 'Cometh the Hour'.
I may go back and read them all again from the beginning now.
