Jeffrey has been writing some nice short reads subtly conveying a whole story without actually putting it in words I think I had read this before when I joined a nearby library.

But I don't always remember titles. The story in itself was very predictable. But then with Archer, even if you don't like the story, you like how it is told. May 30, Sanju rated it really liked it. Ending changed my total perspective and mood towards the story I think that's the beauty of short stories.
Dec 09, Dave rated it it was ok. Really hard to get into as it's so quick. Not bad but nothing ground-breaking. Man on holiday with hardly any money manages to hook up with a hotel receptionist. Feb 04, J. Indeed, a master storyteller No doubt on The Times describing "Jeffery Archer" as "probably the greatest storyteller of our age".
This book proved it. It was the first story I read by Jeffrey and I thoroughly loved it. Apr 13, Vikram rated it it was ok. Just about ok, for the descriptions of Tuscany. Not his his usual style though- no 'twist in the tale' with this one. Apr 10, Sanika rated it liked it. What an excellent book You will get amazed after reading this book. Really a master story teller. I want to read more from this author. So this doesn't really do much - a very short 18 page read. This is the first of anything I've ever read written by Jeffery Archer so I was expecting much more.
I kept expecting something extraordinary to happen in this extremely ordinary story like someone getting murdered getting jumped or whatever but then it is just what it is - an ordinary story. The narration throughout was pretty engaging though, and I think when you reach the end and it just No twists or suspense you realise t So this doesn't really do much - a very short 18 page read.
No twists or suspense you realise that the simplicity and craft of the story was in its ordinariness and so you're just like, okay. And you move on in life. This didn't really add much into my life in any way but didn't really take from it either especially time, because, well its a super short read so this gets 3 stars.
Mar 04, Anwesh Ganguli rated it it was amazing. This is the first story I have read written by Jeff Archer. I am thoroughly enticed and excited after finishing the short story. I can definitely say, I am gonna love his work. The future titles that I am going to read. Now about the story, the reason I loved it so much is that I could relate to it. In a very few words, the writer has made the point very much bold and highlighted that 'anything can happen' and 'there can be good memories within bad times'. And I am definitely gonna start reading more of Archer's works.
But there's not much of a twist in the end. Id give it a 3.
I'd recommend this story to anyone looking for a short, breezy read. Dec 21, Luvena rated it really liked it. Predictable but interesting The style actually had me thinking if a ghost would suddenly turn up The inclusions of other works of art, literature, architectural description etc was a draw factor for me.. Nice story It was very nice story. Simple yet elegant and to the point. It was worth 30 minutes of cozy entertainment. Dec 16, Sagar rated it really liked it Shelves: Twist right at the last word, just when I thought it's too cheesy.
Mar 29, Garry Marlton rated it really liked it. Dec 26, jan and heather jasiok rated it it was amazing. Short but sweet I was not sure which girl it was going to be coming. The unexpected ending had me laughing out loud. But room in the May 02, Mike Briley rated it it was amazing. Aug 15, Clive Gerrard rated it it was ok. A fairly non-descript short story about a lonely backpacker in northern Italy.
Well written but a predictable plot that hardly excites the reader. Out of money , the main character seemingly has the power over women to get free food, free wine and a night of passion in a pension.
