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 ??
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.Read more ›

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.
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.
