Growing up in the slums of East End London, Charlie Trumper dreams of someday running his grandfather's fruit and vegetable barrow. That day comes suddenly when his grandfather dies, leaving him the floundering business. With the help of Becky Salmon, an enterprising young woman, Charlie sets out to make a name for himself as The Honest Trader. But the brutal onset of World War I takes Charlie far from home and into the path of a dangerous enemy whose legacy of evil follows Charlie and his family for generations.

Encompassing three continents and spanning over 60 years, As the Crow Flies brings to life a magnificent tale of one man's rise from rags to riches set against the backdrop of a changing century.

    " This was really good - one of those 'family sagas' that covered 3 generations from 1910 - the late 1970s. I like the way Jeffrey Archer writes these sagas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hari Hara Rohit Divakaruni | 12/4/2013

    " delightful to read it! but the whole vantage point thing is too exhaustive as the prologue of each perception deals with info that has already been dealt with. I didnt like this style. but the story was really gripping though one can say the imminent scenarios were predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T.S. Ferguson | 2/14/2013

    " I read this when I was in 7th grade and was so proud of myself for reading such a long book. I don't remember much about it other than how epic it was and how cute I thought the boy on the cover was, but I do remember how much I loved it and how accomplished I was when I finished it. "

    " Cant get any better I say. Archers books are brilliant in general; the composition, plot, the way the story is woven and brought to logical completion not to mention, the rustic, retro effect/image his historical fiction conjures up in one's mind. Read it thrice! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Florence | 11/9/2010

    " Such an overly long, convoluted story with a tiny payoff. There were no characters that held my interest. Everything was plot-driven. I like novels with a rich background so that you can lose yourself in the time and place. This fat novel was thin in substance. "
