Feb 04, Sid rated it it was amazing Shelves: After a long time, I put my hands on a book that so consumes one’s time, mind and thought. Ahh it was fascinating spending time with such a tumultous plot! Dec 29, Justin Mahaffie rated it it was ok. I like Jeffrey Archer. Paths of Glory was a good book.
I did not like it as much as I’d hoped. The story seemed thin It seems like the story is comprised of three or four major scenes, and that’s it. Were it to be made into a 2 hour movie, it probably wouldn’t have to sacrifice much in the transition.

That said, it’s not a waste of time to read, by any means. At one point, I was rather engrossed, and wanting to see how it played out. Although my exams were a couple of days ahead, I couldn’t stop reading this engaging book. Talking about engagement, I must have been found day and night sticking to The Eleventh Commandment much to the annoyance of my family members and peers.
Other than that, what a read! Though it kept me anticipating a happy ending, I would have definitely been shocked at the moments, I was e Although my exams were a couple of days ahead, I couldn’t stop reading this engaging book.
Though it kept me anticipating a happy ending, I would have definitely been shocked at the moments, I was expected to be so had I not read the last line. I’ve hardly any words to describe how involved I was in Conner’s life, how much sorrow and horror I carried in my heart throughout the read at the dark human mentality and respect and appreciation at the goodness of it. This was my first Jeffrey Archer book and now I believe he’s earned his love of fans.
Accurately, it has been described as “a rollercoaster of a book” and that Archer “scoops his readers up in the first paragraph, and doesn’t let them go until the last. The pace, the ingenuity, the twists, intertwined with a moving love story, show Britain’s bestselling author at the peak of his page-turning powers.

We also have an American president who is easily manipulated by Dexter and a new Russian president. However, there are some problems.

Fitzgerald received the Medal of Honor for his heroism in Viet Nam as a lieutenant. An important point for THIS reader. I attribute the slip to Archer being British and unfamiliar with the American meffrey. He claims to be an executive for an insurance company called Maryland Life. In preparation for his imminent retirement from the CIA, he lands a job interview with the chairman of another insurance company called Washington Provident.
He convinces the chairman and other executives that he is actually an insurance company executive, a totally implausible situation.
Jun 30, Nolan rated it liked it Shelves: What you need to know is that this book will eleventn your interest and keep you involved to the back cover. Connor Fitzgerald has been married to Meg for many years; their daughter is weeks away from graduation from the Stanford med school.
Connor, a lifelong CIA operative, has just a few jobs left to do before he can retire. But Congress and others are turning up the heat on the CIA, and there are rumors that one of its operatives is responsible for the assassination in Columbia. The director, recognizing that this could destroy her career if a link can be successfully made to her agency, determines that Connor Fitzgerald must die so that such a link never materializes.
Jefffrey, then, ultimately is the story of his private deadly war with a lifelong employer. It’s a page turner. I found this book on my shelf and I dont even remember buying it or borrowing it but I am glad I decided to read it. It is a quick read and the author commqndment known for his flair for writing and keeping you engrossed in his archee.
However entertaining it is, it does have its flaws. Firstly what irked me most was that the characters seemed one-dimensional. Either arvher were good or bad.

Secondly, some of the twists weren’t that unexpected as the author would have you believe. One c It’s a page turner. One jegfrey see them coming from afar. And thirdly, the climax bummed me out, especially the quick resolution to the conflict. I probably wanted the protagonist to face more challenges to show he is worthy of the adulation that the books suggests.
