Jan 26, Nidhi rated it it was ok Shelves: There is no twist and no tale for that matter - atleast none worth the mettle All the while reading it I had a sense of deja-vu and not because I had read this earlier, but because the stories were so predictable. Couldnt wait to finish this book - and I dont mean it in a good way.

For people who are just starting to read books this would suit their liking, but not for seasoned readers or lovers of writing. Aug 06, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: Jeffrey Archer is frequently inspired to write short stories based on actual events. Since most of the books I read are E-Books, my curiosity prompts me to easily Google the situations, the tales and the characters in order to learn --as Paul Harvey famously put it -- "The rest of the story".

Archer is a master of 'the twist' ending In fact, more often than not I feel compelled to immediately re-read them to see if I can learn what I may have missed!

Naturally, it is difficult to rate a collection. Some are more engaging than others --it depends on the readers preferences.

But all are extremely well done. I won't rate it a 5, because I reserve that for my all-time favorite books.

But I unreservedly give it a strong 4.

I look forward to reading more of Jeffrey Archer's works. Feb 24, Nilofer rated it liked it Shelves: Two stories stand out - the last, and most poignant, a detailed letter written by a loving son to his rabbi father, describing how he first met and fell in love with his Gentile wife, which manages to catalogue the important landmarks of his life; and a story about a female picking up a man at a pub that is nothing like it seems.

The others seem a little forced, especially the Golf Club one, and even the first in the book, about the 'perfect murder'. By the end I'd lost interest in whether he co Two stories stand out - the last, and most poignant, a detailed letter written by a loving son to his rabbi father, describing how he first met and fell in love with his Gentile wife, which manages to catalogue the important landmarks of his life; and a story about a female picking up a man at a pub that is nothing like it seems.

By the end I'd lost interest in whether he could get away with it or not, and had guessed the ending, which ruined everything, that being one of Archer's key skills, and the point of these short stories, as we can gather from the title.

A Twist in the Tale is a collection of 12 short stories with a twist in the end for each story. Jeffrey Archer stated in the book that ten of the short stories are based on known incidents plus some embellishment and only two of the stories are a result of his own imagination.

While this book is not his best work I still loved reading each story. Refreshingly twisted. Feb 24, Shrena rated it really liked it.

Aptly named, A Twist in the Tale, keeps you glued to your seat all the while you flutter through the pages, and at the very end it will throw you off the track.

A short book, with around 10 stories, written perfectly in sync with the title. I read this book about 4 years ago, and I wasn't very impressed by a story or two that i read then. Now, luckily I decided to give it another chance. It is an example of good story telling ability of Archer. He is a master. I loved some stories, the plot and especially the awesome endings.

It is a fine book. Apr 25, Lanre Ogundimu rated it it was amazing. Jeffery Archer is a master story teller. The book, A Twist in the Tale, indeed confirms this. But, he does a good job of making urban legends into real stories, so I won't dog him to bad for that. Sep 27, Asha Seth rated it liked it Shelves: A fine collection of short stories. Review to follow. Nov 23, Prasanna rated it it was amazing Shelves: This collection of short stories was unexpectedly a good read for me. I had read Archer few years ago, but not his short stories.

But the simple stories in this collection were good, with a twist in the ending some were easily guessable. Overall an enjoyable read.
