Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 2/17/2014

    " I read this during my Geoffrey Archer phase... and the only thing that has stuck with me is the story 'The first miracle'. It's about a very young Pontius Pilate meeting up with Mary and Joseph on their voyage to Bethlehem. Those who know me, know I'm spectacularly religious/Christian - but this story has just stuck with me. It is so heartbreaking in its simplicity and message. It was published as a separate story years ago, as a fundraiser. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hari Hara Rohit Divakaruni | 2/13/2014

    " I liked the last short story, The old love. On the whole, it was not that fascinating "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jakki | 2/13/2014

    " Jeffery Archer is a great writer and his stories in this book are very realistic and so human. Some of his essays didn't do much for me but I especially enjoyed "The 1st Miracle - Pontius Pilate as a Boy" and "Old Love" was especially sweet about growing old together "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 2/4/2014

    " I am not as much a fan of short stories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt | 1/28/2014

    " Cheap twists on tired tales, more often lemon than (sub)lime. In other words? Don't waste your time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melody | 1/20/2014

    " I don't usually enjoy short stories. But these were good stories with a touch of message to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Ann | 1/18/2014
