I already reviewed the first part of the Clifton Chronicles and the major cliffhanger seduced me to buy the next part. I think that I’m so involved in the lifes of the protagonists that I will continue reading this series (I already finished the third part 😉 ).
Title: The Sins of the Father
Author: Jeffrey Archer
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Published: March 2012 (second part of the chronicles)
Cost: 2,31€ (English kindle version)
Number of pages: 397
Summary: The book continues in 1939. Surprise, surprise! Our heros managed to all get themselves in much trouble. The war affects the lifes of the protagonists more than I would like to. Who will come home to Bristol and in what condition?
I don’t have much to criticize except for the end of the book. Since I don’t want to spoil it for you, I’m just going to say that the court chapters are a bit ridiculous. Why is the court interested in the matter even if the accused and accuser say that they don’t want this to be dragged to court??
I criticized the constant change of perspective in the first book but I have to say that the perspective still changes but thay make much more sense! Since the heros are spatially separated, they have to tell their part of the story separately.
I think I read this book in 3 days. It was so suspenseful and I can totally recommend this series so far!
I definitely preferred the second part over the first part. I have to give it a 5/5!
