    Description

    1945. The vote in the House of Lords as to who should inherit the Barrington family fortune has ended in a tie. The Lord Chancellor’s deciding vote will cast a long shadow on the lives of Harry Clifton and Giles Barrington. Harry returns to America to promote his latest novel, while his beloved Emma goes in search of the little girl who was found abandoned in her father’s office on the night he was killed. When the General Election is called, Giles Barrington has to defend his seat in the House of Commons and is horrified to discover who the Conservatives select to stand against him. But it is Sebastian Clifton, Harry and Emma’s son, who ultimately influences his uncle’s fate.

    In 1957, Sebastian wins a scholarship to Cambridge, and a new generation of the Clifton family march onto the page. After Sebastian is expelled from school, he unwittingly becomes caught up in an international art fraud involving a Rodin statue that is worth far more than the sum it raises at auction. Does he become a millionaire? Does he go to Cambridge? Is his life in danger? Best Kept Secret will answer all these questions, but once again, pose so many more.

    Disappointing

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the first two books of the Clifton series but this one seemed forced and awkward. I found the characters unsympathetic, the plot unrealistic and the narrative tedious.

    If you’ve listened to books by Jeffrey Archer before, how does this one compare?

    Easily the worst. I usually get sucked into his stories and carried along by the fast paced stories but this one dragged.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I found the narrator pretentious but competent and clear diction.

    Any additional comments?

    I hope number four will be back to the standard of the first two otherwise it sullies your initial positive impression of the series.

    A bit of a soapie

    Got tired of the soap opera feel of this series. I read 3 of the series in a row and this will be my last purchase. I may come back in years to come but I am over it at this stage. The story overall is entertaining and I would probably have continued if I didn't feel so "milked" by buying a set of chapters rather than a book.

    Jeffery gets lost in a soap opera

    What did you like best about Best Kept Secret: Clifton Chronicles, Book 3? What did you like least?

    The best part was it kept the story going, however, it starts to become very soapy. Compared to volumes 1 and 2 it lets the reader down, it lost my interest in the story. It gets very bogged down in the story and I found myself wishing he'd get on with it and hurry up, a bit like the English Cricket Team.
    Jeffery should've released the volumes sooner as I found myself trying to remember the story.

    Would you recommend Best Kept Secret: Clifton Chronicles, Book 3 to your friends? Why or why not?

    You'd have to recommend it only to get to the end of the saga.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't remember any scene that was a stand out.

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, a movie wouldn't be able to capture all the detail in and would leave the reader disappointed. It would end up becoming like Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, book vs the movie - score 5 and 0, like many other adaptations.
    Angelina's movie Unbroken didn't do the book justice and I would fear the same would happen if this was turned into a movie.
    But isn't that true of most movies and books.

    enjoyable and engaging, but not as good as previou

    Archer is still holding my interest, but barely. His first 2 books in the series were much better I think. Perhaps the story needs to conclude very soon.

    the characters bloom

    too much tedious British politics at times but the characters continue to grow and fascinate

    Continually engrossing story

    This far into a series of books it would be expected that the story might be losing some of its direction or interest but not at all. I really can’t wait to download the fourth book. Archer is a good story teller and every chapter is necessary and engaging.

    Gute Story, etwas schwarz-weiß...

    Die Story ist gut. Die Storyline ist gut Doch mir sind die "bösen" Charaktere viel zu überzeichnet. Sie sind einfach durch und durch bösartig und zweifeln keine Sekunde an ihrem Tun. Die Guten dagegen sind gut, bemüht, überlegt und rücksichtsvoll. Das ist mir einfach zu schwarz-weiß gemalt.
