    Description
    Danny Cartwright and Spencer Craig were born on different sides of the track. Danny, an East End Cockney, leaves Clement Attlee Comprehensive School at the age of 15 to take up a job at a local garage. He falls in love with Beth, the boss’s daughter, and asks her to marry him. Spencer Craig resides in the West End. A graduate of an English public school and Cambridge University. After leaving university he becomes a criminal barrister and is soon tipped to be the youngest Queen’s Counsel of his generation. Danny and Beth travel up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. They end the evening in a wine bar where Spencer Craig is also celebrating - his 30th birthday, along with a select group of university chums. Although the two young men don’t meet, their lives will never be the same again. For, an hour later, one of them is arrested for murder, while the other ends up as the Prosecution’s chief witness in an Old Bailey trial.

    Good Read - Fast Moving

    Nice Book - Fast moving

    Superficially the story may look similar to Dumas novel - The Count of Montecristo but its not an old wine in new bottle.Its beautifully written. People who compare this to Alexander Dumas novel have not read the full version of the count of montecristo. The full version novel, page to page is all about revenge, and gets boring after awhile. A PRISONER OF BIRTH novel is much more intellectually crafted than stupid revenge as its only subject.
    It is actually a well cr...

    A must read

    Order this book from flipkart and received it in 3 days. Great job.

If you are a big Archer fan, youre gonna love this book, and even if you aren't, you'll love it anyway. The style archer adopts in this book is mindblowing. The plot is paced well and always keeps the user interested. I got this book at around 3 pm and didnt put it down (apart from dinner and pee breaks :P) and finished...

    Amazing..

    One of the best books by Jeffrey Archer. Awesome narrative style ..You will love Archer after reading this book. A long book but you will whiz past the pages because it turns out to be so gripping. How Danny escapes and takes revenge is a great read..All courtroom scenes are definitely very thrilling.. DO BUY AND READ THIS BOOK>>

    A Class Apart Archer book !!

    A complete 'unputtable down' book !!.. It has a very gripping plot and it kept me remembering its fine scenes/ episodes for days after.. Story close to that of 'Shawshank redemption' but really one of the best Archer books..

    Disappointing!

    I would say that this one is okayish. Plot is not very great. Just a usual story. One can easily predict what is going to happen next. Disappointed!

    Genius!

    Archer is a master story teller. No one can match his level of narration skill. Prisoner of birth is an excellent specimen of that. An excellent tale of a fight back and a thrilling climax! Worth a read without a doubt!

    a definite thriller !

    I have read JF's novel before and i can say this is one of his best. Although the novel deserved a better ending it is still a must read for a thriller fan!
