The New Collected Short Stories

Once I had completed this, I felt like I had my fill of short stories for this year at least! What drew me to this collection was the overwhelming reputation that Jeffrey Archer holds as a writer.

I have never read any of his books before and this introduction to his writing was a positive one. I am not one to usually read a collection of short stories but I thought I would give this a go.

Therefore, I think this anthology is ideal for someone who wants to "dip in and out" of their reading. In other words, either read this for an occasional read, or, to really enjoy it at its best, have this alongside another novel you are tackling. Whilst I sometimes found it difficult to sustain my interest in this collection, naturally the stories cover a broad appeal for a range of tastes.
