I have never before finished reading a novel that is 800 pages long within such a short time - two working days and a Sunday! This in itself is a testimony to Archer's storytelling prowess. The saga of Charlie and Becky Trumper is highly entertaining, with interesting characters and a flowing narrative that, through changing perspectives, takes the reader along on a fun ride, while providing a commentary on the history of twentieth-century England, and that of the world. Though the characters are in black and white, without any shade of grey, and some plot turns are a bit too convenient, Archer does not let the reader dwell on these shortcomings. Instead, he has concentrated on giving the reader a good time, and has succeeded well enough. ( )

To date one of the worst Archer books I've read ( )

Haha, this book took a full year to read. It is the one we have on our kindle that I read to my wife, Whitney, when she can't sleep. A pretty slow and happy book that worked well in lots of tiny readings. ( )

At 738 pages this isn't a particularly short novel by any means, but the story within is worth everyone of those pages. It's an epic tale of a young man with a dream and covers the unfolding expansion of a little fruit and vegetable wheelbarrow business into some far larger. We see the first world war come and go, the great depression, the second world war, the post war boom and more through the eyes of a man trying to run his business.

Along the way we meet the Trenthams who are possibly the most unlikable and scheming characters (excluding the husband) that I've encountered in a novel.

This was just a really good book, which was a pleasant surprise considering I wasn't really that enthused by the blurb but once I started reading I was really drawn into the story, the characters and the unfolding situation. Would really recommend. ( )

"I don't offer you these for tuppence," my granpa would shout, holding up a cabbage in both hands, "I don't offer 'em for a penny, not even a ha'penny. No, I'll give 'em away for a farthin'."
