Only Time Will Tell (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.399

Only Time Will Tell is the first installment of five in the Clifton Chronicles, featuring Harry Clifton who is on a mission to learn the truth about his parentage.

Summary Of The Book

Only Time Will Tell begins as a coming-of-age novel, but soon turns into a story featuring lies and deception.

The events of Only Time Will Tell span two decades, mainly between 1920 and 1940. Set in Bristol, England, it follows the story’s main protagonist Harry Clifton, who is destined to work on the docks until fate hands him a new lease. One day, while on the verge of being expelled from school, his ability to sing well is noticed by his teachers. After passing a gruelling, 3-part test, Harry joins the school choir. It is when Harry discovers Old Jack that the story takes a different turn.

Harry learns that it is Old Jack who could solve the mystery surrounding his father’s disappearance. However, Old Jack refuses to budge from his silence, leaving a cloud of mystery and unanswered questions over Harry’s head. Nevertheless, Old Jack befriends Harry, and tutors him, which would help him gain admission into a posh school. Meanwhile, Harry’s mother secures a better-paying job at a hotel, and feels relieved that she is now able to afford Harry’s new school’s expenses.

Before starting at the new school, Harry reveals to Old Jack about his desperation to learn about his father. He informs him that the date of his birth and the date of his father's death do not coincide. It is at this time that Old Jack reveals the names of two individuals who could help Harry solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance.

Readers will follow Harry’s journey as he tries to learn about the mystery surrounding his father’s disappearance and how he deals with his own problems as he enters manhood. Only Time Will Tell quickly became an international bestseller, holding the number one position for twelve weeks in India, and selling out on the day it was released.

A work of art...
I began reading this about an hour after its delivery and i put it down not more than five times...though it cost me an entire day and an entire night.
Archer changes the very definition of a shocking ending with this the first part of Clifton Chronicles. I must say 20 years never zoomed past this fast before.
Caution : An extremely engaging read, DO NOT read during your examination time.
Oh and flipkart rocks..it was delivered a day later in such a secure packaging that it took me almost half an hour to open it up!!!

The way Mr. Archer develops his characters is amazing.

This is the first Jeffery Archer book that I read and it didn't fail to make me his fan. After this book, I bought some of his previous works (Kane and Abel) and loved those too.
The characters in this story are not super heroes; they do not come from a legendary fictional tale, they are just simple, subtle human beings who lived in early 20th century in the British city of Bristol. They are so life like, they seem almost real to the reader. Harry, Emma, Giles, Hugo, Masie, Old Jack, Mr. Holcombe, each and every character has their special place in the story. None of them is neglected or o...

They are so life like, they seem almost real to the reader. Harry, Emma, Giles, Hugo, Masie, Old Jack, Mr. Holcombe, each and every character has their special place in the story. None of them is neglected or overly emphasized. It truly is a story of two families. Its a story of great friendship between Harry, Giles and Deakins. Its also a story of love between Harry and Emma.
Overall, this book is really entertaining and in the end you wouldn't want it to end.
Same is the case with the next book in the series, The Sins of the Father. It continues from exactly where this book left so read this one first.

Great. Must read.

Honestly, it has been a year since I read this book, so am a little hazy.

Flipkart delivery had been great (yeah I remember, because never once did I _not_ have great service :) )
And the bookmarks with every book. Amazing touch. It is the little things like this, that matter. Shows us that they care about their customers.

[Note: this was in 2011]
Book was a great page turner. At the end of the book, I was like "When is the next book coming out?". Next year?? Kidding me?

Print Quality:
Paper was average. Font size is reasonable.
It has been on my shelf for > 1year. Paper hasn't changed colour. And I don't get the allergic feeling on opening the book after one year :) .
So all in all decent.

Cost (Value for money):
Hmm, has gotten more expensive since I bought it. I got it from Rs 200, which was a deadly price.
It is a early 2011 book. Just about Rs30 expensive. For 200 it is a deadly buy.

Although, not reading it means you lose out on a great series.

Yes, this is book 1 in what might be a series of 5 books. At the time of this review (2012) book 2 was also out. Just Google around to find out which the next book is.

Finally:
Is this book supposed to be Tasted/Swallowed/Digested:
Swallowed.
You can't miss stuff in the book, you need to read it thoroughly. Ask yourself the occasional question "What would I have done?".

"Some books are meant to be tasted, others to be swallowed,
and some few to be chewed and digested;
That is, some books are to be read only in parts; Others to be read, but not curiously; And some few to be read wholly, and with dilligence and attention."
-Francis Bacon, Of Studies

amazing story

Overwhelmed by the story and representation from everyone's stand point. First time I read the Clifton series and touched by heart. Archer is a great story teller I must say, it seems everything happening in front of my eyes. This series has mystery, romance, sacrifices of a mother and great lover also ups and downs of Harry's life.
It would not allow you to stop reading. Enjoy the Clifton series.

A good read

Viewing the same story from different perspectives; well, Jeffrey has done a good job with that. The story line line pulls you to read through each person's view without a break. And the kind of twist that each person's introduction brings in into the story, astounding.. Only archer can do it so... (View complete review)
