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.

Vintage Archer

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 over

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 colo

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.

Excellent Book ....

I have to say that this is my first Jeffery Archer book and I am feeling sad that i never listened to my bro when he told me about his other works ... Its during a minor surgery break that I got a chance to read this one. And what a read !!!

This is excellent work of fiction and very much of a page turner. I have to say that I kind of expected the book's general plot to take the direction that it took. Since, the work was similar to another book that I read called "The Shadow Of The Wind- By Carloz Ruiz Zafron" (another excellent work if you havent already read it!!!). But still there were s

A Must Read

Guys don't just assume this masterpiece as a single story novel. This gem is among the first of the novels(5 novels) in "Clifton Chronicles".
Jeffrey Archer started this series aiming to dazzle & pump the extra adrenaline in to the readers as they have experienced never before.
I am sure you will like this masterpiece from the master himself in story telling. Great book ( for first part ). You will start cursing "Jeffrey" after reading the last page for the suspense he has created and for delaying to release his second book.

Guys don't forget to follow the second book which is scheduled for M

Only Time Will Tell, indeed.

I was one of the few lucky people who got to meet Jeffrey Archer in person at the book launch of Only Time Will Tell in Delhi. I remember him telling all his fans that The Clifton Chronicles will be his most ambitious project ever and to be honest, the guy has done everything a writer can to make a novel worth reading. Archer has come up with a fantastic plot and has lived up to the expatiation of his fans.

If you are looking for a genuinely entertaining novel then read Only Time Will tell. You'll enjoy reading it.
