Book Review :Only time will tell - Jeffrey Archer

Another master piece of Jeffrey Archer. Well, it doesnt make much sense to talk of the story or about his writing in general. What beautiful about this book is the way, its divided into chapters and different parts of the books talk of a given  character , and its not written over a timeline. Not sure if you got what I meant, but maybe if I put it in SQL language, its kind of select ing the contents of the book and grouping  them by character  and putting in chapters. Still at the end of this, makes very easy to read and also keeps the unknown's from one character only to be revealed by when another character talks about it in his grouping. 

As of the book and the story in general, is about Harry Clifton, who hails from a poor family and has a gifted voice. During his journey of life, he is helped knowingly and unknowingly by many people who have come across in his life. Its a different fact that his biological father is not his actual father, and almost end's up marrying his half sister. The journey also revolves around his two best friends in school, who help him in his thick and thin, and only time would tell him what's in store for him.

Just dont miss this book , if you love Jeffrey Archer.
