Because the first book in the series was so great I went directly on to this one and I was not disappointed. The characters evolved nicely and the story line held its own, but it did not make me want to jump right into the third.
However, that being said, I do plan on finishing the series but needed a break, perhaps a different genre. I would recommend this series to those that like epics. Mar 27, Samyuktha jayaprakash rated it it was amazing. I started reading the book at about 4 thinking I would read some chaps during the two hour power cut. Being lazy nowadays - I had convinced myself I am losing my appetite for books. But Archer just proved that my tummy is destined for unseen obesity levels!
Like another reviewer wrote , the book just sucked me in and didn't let me move an inch till the very last page , cursing the author for not writing more and now here I am waiting for the release of the next book. There is also the 'unseen' romance like paths of glory and hell! S - Semi is back to the reading business B Aug 25, Nilesh rated it it was ok. Clifton Chronicles should have been a single book and not broken into five - this becomes much clearer with the Sins of the Father.
More like any middle sections of even good stories, this book is meaningless for anyone who does not remember the details of events from Book 1. The story moves along but appears without any plot and certainly without any satisfactory end to any of the major intrigues.
On the positive side, witty, charming dialogues continue between largely likeable characters. The Clifton Chronicles should have been a single book and not broken into five - this becomes much clearer with the Sins of the Father. The truly evil character is meted with appropriate denouement in surprisingly quick and efficient manner. The sub-plots and side-stories continue to hold readers' interest.
Overall, the biggest fear for anyone reading the Chronicles in real time is that by the time the next episode comes out, one would have forgotten so many finer points of the tales. It is likely that anyone reading the entire series in one go may derive more value from this book but as a stand-alone, this is a weak book despite the usual Archerisque writing and characters.
Nov 05, S. I began reading this book a few days after having read its predecessor. Although it was enjoyable in parts, i must say that i didnt feel all those 'wow' moments I experienced in 'Only Time Will Tell. First, you cant appreciate this book without having read the other, so that is already a dependence, a handicap which must be recognised - it is not a level playing field.

Second, the Prisoner's Diary bit is already a borrowed theme from Jeffery Archer's non fiction chronicle of his experiences. Third, knowing that there is a third book coming, one could predict the tied vote in Parliament, but it is a let down for someone who may not want to go further with the trilogy only to find out about the vote.
It is as though Jeffery has asked us all to wait through a long commercial break. Many may have forgotten the first one by then. But even accepting commercial logic perspectives, my problem is with the content novelty. Do I detect a struggle to put in a number of smaller stories for the bulk? Strangely, I enjoyed Hugo Barrington more than the protagonists, he remained true to himself until the end. In any case I did finish it in one sitting, which speaks for the stickiness factor characteristic of Jeffery Archer.

But then, when you've read all his books, you can think like him at times and anticipate his twists now. Looking for a real pencil-chewing Sudoku in the next one Aug 01, Matt rated it really liked it.
Jeffrey Archer at his best in this, the second in the Clifton heptalogy, picking up where he left off. The reader learns a great deal more about some of the key characters that fill the plot lines leading into the Second World War. Harry, who took on another man's identity after a military incident, soon learns that his gamble did not pay off and he finds himself incarcerated in New York. Harry spends that time honing his writing skills in jail and is eventually drafted into battle with US Force Jeffrey Archer at his best in this, the second in the Clifton heptalogy, picking up where he left off.

Meanwhile, Emma is a new mother and learns of Harry supposed 'death at sea' but refuses to believe it. She travels over the Atlantic to investigate for herself, discovering Harry's writing and goes in search of the love of her life.

Maisie is his most recent target, as he tries to bully her into selling the land on which her teashop once stood. In the end, he meets his demise, but the question of Harry's paternity takes centre-stage as the Barrington inheritance must be decided.
Newly elected Labour Member of Parliament Giles Barrington watches on as the House of Lords debates the rightful heir, even though Harry wants nothing to do with it. Another stellar cliffhanger leaves Archer fans cursing, but applauding all at the same time. Wonderful continuation of the series sure to keep readers up late into the night.
Archer remains a powerful narrator and linguistic sculptor, presenting the reader with a wonderful story that expands with each passing chapter. Renewing the layered narrative approach, the reader is treated not only to numerous plot lines through the eyes of various characters, but also a powerful addition to the central story with each section.
The reader may bask in the exciting set of plots on which the novel continues to build. While the story has yet to really focus on a second or third generation, Archer had laid the groundwork for this and has a number of storylines ready to blossom. Patience, eager reader, as I am sure it all comes to pass soon. Kudos Lord Archer for this powerful piece of work.
Keep building and you will surely capture the hearts and minds of many more readers before too long.

We catch up with Harry Clifton as he disembarks the Kansas Star in America,only to be promptly arrested for murder. And now he's in a mess.

Well, you need to read the first book in the series, Only Time Will Tell. This is not a stand alone book. You need the background or you will be lost through most of the book. Lord Archer's attention to detail is a double edged sword. While I appreciate the details that help me understand the ins and out of English society, the droning on and on about who was going to inherit the family title in the last pages made me do some serious skimming.
I did appreciate the humor in Emma's experiences in NYC. The colloquial and societal differences made for some much needed humor in a tense but drawn out situation, as she tries to find out what happened to Harry. I look forward to continuing the series. Jeffrey Archer is a master at bringing history to life.

But for a engrossing, well-written generational saga, it's more like a 2.

He befriends the richest family in the region's son and the two best buddies stand by one another through the years and family drama from Book 1: Only Time Will Tell. Fast forward to Book 2 The Sins of the Father and all the characters have split apart due to war and more family drama, but thankfully they are all so intelligent and so brave that they find their way through a war and two continents to reunite.
Still, no one can live happily ever after because So even though I felt the good characters were all sooooo good and the bad characters were nothing but bad and you read about the SAME FIVE YEARS from three or four points of view which gets irritating, especially in Book 1 , I still read both books in the series continuously for 10 hours and didn't put them down. Not sure where that leaves me - the simplicity of the plot and the black and white of the characters drove me crazy and yet I read both nonstop.
Two thumbs up if you're on the beach, but maybe not so much if you were hoping for an epic family saga. Well, this was one rip snorting ride that Jeffrey Archer has given us. I have read so many family sagas from the likes of Trollope, Delderfield, Follett and Susan Howatch, and this series is as good as, if not better than those works.
Called the Clifton Chronicles, this is the story of the Clifton and Barrington families and there are more plot twists and excitement than one person can describe.

A fast reading book, this book is divided up into sections based on the Characters in the book and follows them through their respective sections.
Chapters are pages in length and the book moves quickly sometimes a bit too quickly through the World War 2 years and all the intrigue that involves the family.
You really need to begin this series with the first book because, unlike some other authors, Archer moves quickly into action mode and does not recap what happened as thoroughly, as other writers, what happened in the prior book.
I had read Book 1 about 2 year ago and found myself floundering a bit at the beginning of this book the first 20 pages until I just started reading and not worrying what had happened previously. I now have all the other books in this series, and as soon as I finish this review I will begin Book 3 on my Kindle - these books are that good and the stories are that engrossing!
If you have not read Archer he is quite a colorful character in his own right and so it should come as not surprise that his books are great and fun reads. Jun 11, Jenny rated it liked it.
For whatever reason I did not enjoy volume 2 of the Clifton Chronicles as much. I LOVED the first one as evidenced by my 5-star rating and this one didn't quite live up to my exceptions. I have a few theories as to why this is When I first saw that this book was coming out in May, I was very surprised and happy, as the first one was published in August.

I noticed a few typos in this one for all I know there were typos in the 1st that I didn't catch and in general it just felt a little more rushed to me. The first book covered a large span of time and lot of Harry's growing-up years.
I LOVE generational books where we following characters as they grow, age and mature. Harry is such a lovely character to follow I was just swept in to his story watching him grow up in book 1. This books takes place over just a couple years, when Harry is technically already an adult, and I think that made me not quite enjoy it as much.
The stories also all felt a little flat.

I liked how Jeffrey used the same format for this book as he did in the first. Each character had chapters written from their point of view, so you as the reader get the whole story, as opposed to the characters who only get a snip. I liked how Jeffrey gently gave you the backstory, so that if you had not read the first book, you were Follow Harry Clifton and his friends and family from to I liked how Jeffrey gently gave you the backstory, so that if you had not read the first book, you were not left in the dark.
Also if it had been awhile since you had read the first book, then your memory will be refreshed, which gives added value to the story. I liked The Sins of the Father more than the first book. I thought the plot was far better and I liked that Harry and his contemporaries were now adults rather than teenagers. I liked how the book progressed and I was unsure how the story would unfold.
I found this novel to be a pleasant read. Character development was very good, regardless whether the person was a good or bad guy. I found The Sins of the Father to be a comfortable read. Although it was set in times well before I was born, it had dilemmas etc that are still relevant today.

As in Mr. I do believe you would enjoy the book so much more if you read volume one first.
There are plot lines and relationships that would have much more impact. This second volume lacks the energy of the first one, and tends to drag a little, but is still a very good read.
This saga is full of twists, and of course, the cliff hanger ending is definitely present to try to entice you to read the third volume.
