A Twist in the Tale

This one has been sitting on my shelves for a looooong time, but I held onto it because I had a feeling it would be good, and it was. A Twist in the Tale is a collection of 12 short stories, which I usually enjoy because they have such great twists at the end. I guessed the twists of some of the stories, but it didn't spoil them. Most of them just made me smile at the cleverness of the author. This is the only Jeffrey Archer book I've read, and I enjoyed his intelligent use of language and his knowledge of a vast range of topics. This book was written in 1988, so it is ancient, but the content hadn't dated too much. An amusing and entertaining read.

My rating ****


  1. It's always fun to see if you can guess the twist endings, isn't it? I'm glad you enjoyed these stories!

    1. I'm usually hopeless at guessing the twists! I really enjoyed these stories, so I'm going to have a look for some more authors who write short story collections. Thanks for visiting :).
