ô Sons of Fortune ↠´ Download by ✓ Jeffrey Archer Boring I didn t care much for either of the main characters, and Luke dying made NO sense Why would a teenage boy in the 90 s a care that much that his grandma used to be a prostitute and b not clarify what was going on with his parents first Why would the grandmother be amused by how well her business is doing as a result of her secret getting out, when it caused the death of her grandson Why couldn t she have died instead Didn t make sense The trial was very good, I did like that But oh my gosh, what a long, arduous journey to get to almost no pay off at the end They didn t even seem to be that surprised when they found out the truth, and it had no consequences by that point in the story.
This book was an absolute entertainer from start to end I may change the rating later but as of now i want to give it full stars.
Now I have changed it to 4.
I usually tend to read two books at a time especially if one of the books isthan 500 pages reason being somewhere in the mid i may get bored of the pace or the characters or may be i just need a break from that book but i was totally wrong when i started this one From the moment i started till the end it didn t even cross my mind to start another book until i finished the whole thing.
When i was first getting into the story of Nat and Fetcher a dizygotic twins who were separated at birth because of some unusual circumstances , mentally i had came up wi It Is Often Spur Of The Moment Decisions, Sometimes Made By Others, That Can Change Our Whole Lives Bestselling Author Jeffrey Archer Returns With A Powerful Tale Of Twins Separated By Fate And Reunited By DestinyIn The LateS In Hartford, Connecticut A Set Of Twins Is Parted At Birth Nat Cartwright Goes Home With His Parents, A Schoolteacher And An Insurance Salesman But His Twin Brother Is To Begin His Days As Fletcher Andrew Davenport, The Only Son Of A Multi Millionaire And His Society Wife During The Years That Follow, The Two Brothers Grow Up Unaware Of Each Other S Existence Nat Leaves College At The University Of Connecticut To Serve In Vietnam He Returns A War Hero, Finishes School And Becomes A Successful Banker Fletcher, Meanwhile, Has Graduated From Yale University And Distinguishes Himself As A Criminal Defense Lawyer Before He Is Elected To The Senate Even When Nat And Fletcher Fall In Love With The Same Girl They Still Don T Meet They Continue On Their Separate Paths Until One Has To Defend The Other For A Murder He Did Not Commit But The Final Confrontation Comes When Nat And Fletcher Are Selected To Stand Against Each Other For Governor Of The StateIn The Tradition Of Jeffrey Archer S Most Popular books, Sons of Fortune Is As Much A Chronicle Of A Nation In Transition As It Is The Story Of Two Remarkable Men And How, Eventually, They Come To Discover The Truth And Its Extraordinary Consequences Jeffrey Archer is a well established English author, who has written such bestsellers as Kane and Abel and Honor Among Thieves, but his latest addition to the publishing world, Sons of Fortune, fails in many ways maybe it is because he wrote it under the duress of incarceration For about a year now Archer has spent his time in prison because he was essentially embezzling money as a member of the House of Lords In that time he has written and produced a play pleading his innocence, and has written this book It is about two brothers as many of Archer s books are , but they do not know they are brothers, separated at birth due to the apparent stupidity and gullibility of the medical industry, as well as the necessity of one nurse to look good The result is these two brothers aspire to be politicians and eventually run for governor against Sons of Fortuneenthralled me Totally One of the books I will never get enough of It was my first Archer novel, and I m glad that I decided to read this wonderful, gripping and remarkable story.
Nat Cartwright and Fletcher Davenport separated at birth are dizygotic twins twins developed from two separate oocytes fertilized at the same time They may be of the same or opposite sex, differ both physically and genetically they were both raised in different worlds One, goes to a wealthy family, The Davenport s and the other to a middle class, The Cartwright s.
I don t know who I like the most They were both captivated me Nat serves with honorable distinction in Vietnam He was considered a hero then later on goes to banking While Fletcher bec Jeffrey Archer must have been off his meds, or on them beyond the recommended dose for a year He is usually great The story is packed full of English aristocratic snobbery, but transferred to America Clumsily transferred Standard, rich twins separated at birth One raised poorer They both whoop ass in slightly different ways, but of course they are both swinging for the fence I wonder if he was on a Connecticut country club tour with elderly Yale and boarding school alumni the entire time he was researching and felt the need to kiss their asses in thanks It is hard to imagine someone missing the mark on an American bookcompletely Beyond that the story is ridiculous, implausible, and boring This book is a stinker.
What s the point It s 500 pages of plotless nothing I wanted something to happen It just kept going withinane storylines About halfway through, I began trying to figure why I should I care any I still don t have an answer.
Not Archer s best work at all.
Easy enough to turn the pages I guess, but this just felt careless in many respects Spoiler alertI agree with Courtney The reaction from Nat and Fletcher when they learn that they re twins was so so so underwhelming Ho hum Next.
The desperate need for life saving AB neg hmmm.
The grief for Luke s death seemed very brief, and lacked depth Then for Nat and Su Ling to casually laugh about her mother s we wash your dirty linen in public advertising slogan for the laundry shop This was just pathetic and heartless in view that Luke took his own life after he found out his grandmother used to work as a prostitute Who are these people On the positive side glad neither twin was the bad guy Thank you Ralph.
Not one of Archer s better novels It s definitely no Kane Abel.
Boring Couldn t get interested in the dull characters and the obvious, plodding story where 2 parallel lives unfailingly continue down similar paths unaware of the other Typical twin separated at birth plot I rarely put a book down once I start, but I predicted every page before I read it and realized it just was never going to give me a reason to turn another page.
read on blog This book like all other Jeffrey Archer books is great The start of the book reminded me of his book The Fourth Estate A book review that I have already done but as you go on reading you will realise that it s nothing like that book at all The story is set in the time between the 1940 s and the end of the twentieth century They have a common rival Elliot, who in my opinion is a total jerk which is obviously what the author wanted us to feel There is intense rivalry at different parts with different people which makes the book all theinteresting Fletcher and Nat s devoted love towards their wife and child is adorable, which leads to the small intense action between one of the main characters and the rival I am not telling who which is awesome and as I was reading the action part I was rooting for the protagonist to punch the heck out of the other person.
