I waited very impatiently for the conclusion of this series. While waiting, I reread the books in order & by the final book, felt as if I was living in Bristol too. This is a beautiful series & it will be most difficult to find another book just as engrossing & fact filled. Knowing that this was to be the final book in the series, I was most eager to read the conclusion. Too many times with books, I've almost screamed that I could have written it better! This ending was very emotional and I did quite a bit of soul searching in wishing that my eulogy could be as beautiful. I just vowed to myself that I am going help others & always try to see the good side of everyone just as Harry & Emma always did. Mr Archer, please start on the next series ASAP & make your characters just as lifelike as Emma , Harry, Giles, etc. Please, please include a horrible "Lady Virginia"; most creative & hated character in the series.

It felt hurried through. Like I was being rushed. Quickly written to end the series. I felt dumped. Jeffery Archer is one of my favorite authors...not like his usual caliber of writing.

Jeffrey Archer is an excellent story teller. The Clifton Cronicals is, by far, the best series read on a long time. . . wish there was an 8th book.

This series is incredible! From the first book to the last, Harry Clifton and the other characters in this book captivate you. I would highly recommend this to anyone- but beware, tears may be shed at the end of the last book when you realize you can't follow these truly incredible characters any longer. Archer is extremely talented and I hope to read more of his writing one day.

A magnificent conclusion to the Clifton Chronicles. It was a bittersweet moment when I turned the page for the last time on these well-defined and dynamic characters, whom I came to know and love. Jeffrey Archer once again demonstrates why he deserves the title of master storyteller.

I really enjoyed the complete series of the Clifton Chronicles. I had my favorite characters and could relate well with one in particular throughout the books. Nonetheless, I felt like part of the Clifton family as the story pulled me in. The Clifton Chronicles is not at a loss for people you love to hate, that is for sure. I was there pulling for the the good and rooting when the evil people got what they deserved. The plot twists are terrific as they spun the story in another direction. This Was a Man tied up all the loose ends but when I thought I figured out the ending, the author had me fooled. I enjoyed the journey of all seven books.

This Was a Man by Jeffrey Archer, a British author, was a real page-turner. It is the last in a series of seven and though I have not read the other six, this was easy to follow. The front and back inlays have the family trees of both the Barringtons and the Cliftons for quick reference. These families were joined by marriage between Harry, a writer and Emma, a politician. Giles, Emma’s brother (Barrington) and Emma (Clifton) are in competition as they vie for positions in the Parliament. However, their friendship and respect stay intact. Sections of the book are dedicated to key members of both families and their lives are intertwined with historic events like Margaret Thatcher’s reign, the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and the AIDS epidemic during the 70’s and 80’s. We journey along with Harry, Emma, Sebastian, Sam, Jessica from the Clifton side and Giles, Karin, Grace and the ever scheming former wife of Giles, Lady Virginia from the Barrington side. This great, great read!
