Description

Heads You Win is the incredible and thrilling novel by the master storyteller and best-selling author of the Clifton Chronicles and Kane and Abel, Jeffrey Archer.

Leningrad, Russia, 1968. 

Alexander Karpenko is no ordinary child, and from an early age, it is clear he is destined to lead his countrymen. But when his father is assassinated by the KGB for defying the state, he and his mother will have to escape from Russia if they hope to survive. At the docks, they are confronted with an irreversible choice: should they board a container ship bound for America or Great Britain? Alexander leaves that choice to the toss of a coin....

In a single moment, a double twist decides Alexander’s future. During an epic tale of fate and fortune, spanning two continents and 30 years, we follow his triumphs and defeats as he struggles as an immigrant to conquer his new world. As this unique story unfolds, Alexander comes to realise where his destiny lies and accepts that he must face the past he left behind in Russia.

With a final twist that will shock even his most ardent fans, this is international number one best seller Jeffrey Archer’s most ambitious and creative work since Kane and Abel.

Hear, hear.

This was a positive surprise! I had difficulties listening to it in the beginning, but after the 3rd chapter I couldn't stop. yes it has taken me one month to finish it, but I've had so much else to do, and I spend most of my free time listening to this amazing story!

Gripping narrative. Shocking end!

As with any Jeffery Archer book, the story writing is witty and clever that it keeps you hooked despite somewhat confusing plot. Due to the uniqueness of the plot you feel like reading two novels in one. Although it's not comedy at any rate, the situational humour in the story is a pleasant bonus. And the end ....it just leaves you in a shock. Leaves you thinking about what you just read, questioning yourself if it was complete fiction or if some of it was real. You also feel somewhat cheated at the abrupt ending but the shock that the last word of the novel delivers you leaves you so curious that you easily ignore the abruptness. The shock at the end stays with you for days. And last word about the narrator, he has done amazing work, you feel like you indeed listening to the characters speaking. All in all, a very satisfying yet mystifying read!!!!

confusing

whilst I love the usual Jeffery archer books I found this highly confusing and hard to listen to probably better in a paperback. its plot about two exiles was quite clever but you really had to concentrate on the different plots

Frustrating

Had me gripped all the way through... and then the ending... how absolutely frustrating to be left with no hint of an explanation

Amazing beyond words!

A book that’s confusing in the beginning to say the least, and then becomes so gripping as the reader accepts that there are two parallel lives being lived, realising fully that one of them isn’t real, finding it difficult to decide which one, and then comes the slap on the face when one hears the last sentence!!!

Awesome story, great narration! Jeffrey Archer’s fans cannot ask for more!

Wonderfully fres

The story is like a breath of fresh air, pure pleasure, on the background of well trodden history.

Unterirdisch

An den Haaren herbei gezogen.
Stellt die Geduld auf eine harte Probe.
Das kann leider auch der gute Sprecher nicht mehr retten.
Totalflop!
