I got a book by Jeffrey Archer, The Prodigal Daughter. I knew who Jeffery Archer was, as he was making news around that time for being in prison or something. I started reading it, and loved it. This was a real page turner, I almost finished it in one go [with many small pauses].
Then I thought of reading more by Archer, so I went and got a few books. The next book I read was Sons of Fortune, which I really liked also. Then I started reading First Among Equals, but couldn't get past the first few pages. A political book here and there is nice, but I couldn't bear to keep reading politics. I still have not again started reading it.
Picked up the Prodigal Daughter by random a couple of days ago, and started reading. I really like this book. It's fun to read, and has a really quick pace for a drama. And I really like the character of Florentyna Kane; I like all characters who go after what they want as hard as they can.
The story continues from another Archer novel, Kane & Abel [which I've not read]. It's basically about a woman who is intelligent and fiercely determined. She wants to be the President of the United States, and there are basically three things that stand in her way - being an immigrant's daughter, being a woman, and being extremely rich. You get to read about almost her entire life, it's almost like a fictional biography. You've got to read the story, so I won't spoil much of it here.
Reading it the second time was as good as reading it the first time. This book is something that I'd recommend to anyone.
Archer is a really good story-teller. I want to read more of his books, but am put off by too much politics. So lets see.
