Book Review: The Endgame, by Jeffrey Archer

This is another short read that I found on Kindle. It takes around fifteen minutes to read it, that’s all.

The story follows an old man’s tests to find out which people of those who benefit from his death actually love him, and who is there near him only for his money. He trusts only his closest friend and lawyer with his plans, and it is with that friend who he plays a weekly game of chess. Will the end game work out as he planned?

I loved the short story. It’s not unpredictable in where the story leads, but it’s a bit unpredictable in which character does what in response to the tests the old man plans for them. It’s beautifully woven, engaging from first page to last. I loved the character of Cornelius, and also of Frank. The only flipside for this story is that it is short, and I felt it would be interesting if it was longer.

Definitely pick this book up for a short escape from reality. It’s one short read I’d read again for sure!
