Again I read one more great story from JA. My favorite story teller. I wonder how can the author make so many twists in one story and finally brought to a good end.
Jeffrey Archer is on our CP English booklist. I love most of his books...they remind me of Tom Clancy.
When Charlie Trumper inherits his grandfather's fruit and vegetable barrow, he inherits as well his enterprising spirit, which gives Charlie the drive to lift himself out of the proverty of Whitechapel, in London's East End. Success, however, does not come easiy or quickly, particularly when WWI sends Charlie into combat and into an ongoing struggle with a vengeful enemy who will not rest until Charlie is destroyed.
This is a rags-to-riches tale of East End barrow-boys, supermarkets, boardroom politics, war and vegetables. If anyone had told me in advance I would really like it I would have laughed, but looking back I know I was gripped by it. It is full of twists and turns, cliffhangers and things that seem to mean one thing and actually mean another.
