BOOK REVIEW: Sons of Fortune

Sons of FortuneSons of Fortune by Jeffrey Archer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had never read any of Jeffrey Archer's books, until it appeared on my Book Club 'to read' list. I enjoyed it, but had to overcome some hurdles before I got into the rhythm of the story. At first, I thought I was reading a male 'Danielle Steele' story. Then, once I got past that feeling, I had to learn to keep the 'twins' straight. Their stories overlap. One paragraph/chapter will be about Fletcher and then quickly switch to Nat. I found the historical background interesting as I lived through those times. I liked getting an incite into the political campaign process and the banking transaction details. (I am a retired banker.) I couldn't help but wonder why Nat and Fletcher didn't recognize each other. They were both high profile figures and their pictures would have been in the national newspapers often. Also, their paths were tracking together and I knew they would at some point they would converge. I had it figured out in my mind, but will not 'spoil' it for you. Recommend!
