The author and the paper are fairly repugnant, but I can’t deny he writes interesting books. Thanks

I’m going to say it before anyone else ... will this be more than a wasted hour reading this?!

Says something coming from Boz

Link shows as not available for purchase????

This is coming up in my keyword alert even though I don't have Kindle in my keyword alerts

Why could this be?

You'd have to be wasted to consider reading this....

12 pages, so more accurate to call it a wasted 10mins.

Endorsed by the "Mail on Sunday". That's a definite "cold" vote then and I'm going to put the hour to a much better use i.e. having a kip.

Many thanks for sharing.

Daily Mail endorsements do tend to put me off things.

The wikipedia page about Archer himself is probably as interesting as any of his books

Yes you tend to get a good inside story 😊

Is that how long he spent on Google checking to see which plot "ideas" he'd "thought up" weren't already taken?

I know, I prefer the unbiased endorsements of The Guardian & Huffington Post.

An hour a week spent in the Houses of Parliment, the rest fiddling expenses.

I preferred him when he was in jail.

Mail on Sunday has said that he is 'probably the greatest storyteller of our age ..well that just about sums up the Mail on Sunday really , one foot in the grave and the other up it,s backside !

I think he is a very good story teller, not such a great person, never met him so can't comment too much.
He's good but wouldn't put him as the greatest. Sir P.G. Wodehouse is better. Same generation?
