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!

Poetry and writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
