The settings of the twelve tales in this book are wonderfully presented, whether it be lost in Ancient Bethlehem or stranded in a Brazilian hotel. It is evident that prior to writing, Jeffrey Archer researched the various setting locations and time periods. Unlike renowned John Grisham, Archer's writings reflect over a variety of topics including love, politics, and humor. Therefore, it is more likely that this book will appeal to you, unless you find reading about 50-year old lawyers fascinating.
You can't talk about Jeffrey Archer without referring to his expertise in writing endings. Unlike most other stories, which end in typical, lovey-dovey fashion, Archer's endings always have unexpected twists, and the ones in `A Quiver Full of Arrows' are not exceptions. After reading the book's first story, `The Chinese Statue', I found myself flipping back through the pages to reread it. The ending of this short, yet meaningful story adds a whole new perspective. This can be said about the other 11 entries. To truly understand a piece in this book, you must read it again and again; it astounds me how much depth Jeffrey Archer puts into his writing.
All in all, `A Quiver Full of Arrows' is a top-class read for everyone; I have yet to find a collection of short stories that is more appealing. It is a noteworthy two hour read that is sure to change your perspective on life. You'll have a hard time peeling your eyes off this one.
Here we have stories with real characters, great story lines and magnificent twists and turns, as a good short story should be. To say more about the stories would give away the excitement the reader will experience.
