Description

False Impression is a fun romp that reads like a movie, so it won't surprise me if the screenplay and a movie on the small or big screen follows

False Impression is a fun romp that reads like a movie, so it won't surprise me if the screenplay and a movie on the small or big screen follows. It's just enough fun that I would watch it, even though I know what happens. The characters and subplots are fairly predictable: young, attractive and smart Sandra-Bullock-type professional art broker meets up with young, attractive and smart FBI agent to expose a heartless banker/investor who hires ex-cons and a very evil James Bond-type villainess.

An engrossing tale of a missing masterpiece, False Impression is Jeffrey Archer’s 12th novel. In False Impression, his love and knowledge of the art world resonates on every page, and, although it spans days, not decades, this novel still captures the epic sweep of Jeffrey’s previous books. First published in the UK – 2006, Macmillan.

False Impression is a mystery novel by English author Jeffrey Archer, first published in February 2005 by Macmillan (. ISBN 1405032553). The novel was published in several countries.

False Impression is written by Jeffrey Archer. It uses the 9/11 tragedy to capture the reader’s interest, but it is mainly about conspiracies in the art world – or, if you want it in simpler terms, it’s a murder mystery. This book didn’t compare to the other book I’ve read by the same author – As The Crow Flies – but it is still a good story, set in the real world, with believable characters. At first, I felt a bit confused with all the characters (not to mention the head hopping), but the False Impression is written by Jeffrey Archer.

Jeffrey Archer was unable to publicise his 11th novel, Sons of Fortune .

Jeffrey Archer was unable to publicise his 11th novel, Sons of Fortune (2002), because he disobeyed the title of his 10th novel, The Eleventh Commandment (1999) - colloquially, "thou shalt not get caught". But False Impression is a book about a rich and powerful man who profits through deception, which gives it fascination from a psychological if not a literary standpoint.

False Impression is a fun romp that reads like a movie, so it won't surprise me if the screenplay and a movie on the small or big screen follows. It's just enough fun that I would watch it, even though I know what happens. The characters and subplots are fairly predictable: young, attractive and smart Sandra-Bullock-type professional art broker meets up with young, attractive and smart FBI agent to expose a heartless banker/investor who hires ex-cons and a very evil James Bond-type villainess. The main subject is fairly fresh and interesting in that it involves fine art theft and forgery (a nice detour from countless new books and movie releases that seem buried in the rut of post-end-of-world survival, dysfunctional sex, violence, and relationships). The research this author did on the art world and great artists is not deep, but seems enough to make things just believable for an entertaining escape, and at times you learn something new about how fine art is handled by collectors and sellers. Don't expect a fine mystery, but the thrills are fun, and the point-of-view and scenes are fascinating at times, when told through the eyes of Anna, the main character, who lives through and describes (while moving the plot along!) the collapse of the North Twin Tower on 9/11. This part alone might have snagged me.

Can you believe it? I didn't know of this book until I saw it listed in the author's books, when I picked up 'The Best Kept Secret'. This and Gospel of Judas. The book starts with the backdrop of 9/11 but moves on to the world of art- giving a glimpse of the esoteric language of paintings. It has the signs of Lord Jeffrey Archer's work, with good twists, and the triumph of natural justice. Besides the protagonist Anna-who comes across credibly as a true professional, I loved Nakamura the Japanese connoisseur's character very much, he comes very close to a rich Japanese (one of the world's top thirty richest men) whom I had the occasion to interact with a few years ago. He was more fond of his art possessions than his sprawling business empire. But then, all crazy billionaire art lovers could be expected to be similar, no? However, the icing on the cake was the listing of the top-grossing paintings. Super nuggets of knowledge to impress folks at parties, ahem! Amidst it all a humble realisation that my trips to art museums in Amsterdam were a wasted opportunity. Have to go there again!

However, every book of JA's gets compared with his first bestsellers, which can be unfair to the younger siblings. Maybe it is just that I have read most of his books, particularly Kane and Abel, Prodigal Daughter, NPMNPL, etc., when I was in the teens, or that I am now used to his style and can foresee the twists, the 'Wow!' seems to be missing in the later reads. But then, it could even be my own senility and an atrophying of the excitement and surprise emotions in me. With that qualification, benchmarking with K & A which I'd give a straight 5, this one will be a 4 star.

Reading this book heightened my knowledge about the beauty of fine art and its value. Much more interesting than picking up a book only about art. The ever fascinating story is interesting & I was enlightened to learn so muck about the "great masters"' This book is one of his best. IG

A friend lent a Jeffrey Archer book to me about 20 years ago and I have been hooked ever since. The plot has so many twists that I just go all long for the ride and enjoy. Definitely a page turner, but not to be finished in one night. Spend a few days with it. Need 10 stars.

I have not seen a poor JA novel but the first 2 pages of this one stumped me and I thought I finally had. Took me a few tries to get over the hump. But when I finally did, I couldn't put it down and my faith in JA was restored. And he's such a great writer that when I thought the story/book had ended, a whole new twist was just beginning. The man is a master.

I have now read everything Jeffrey has ever published. This book was so absorbing, I read it in one day. It was fast reading because it definitely kept my interest; it was exciting; at times heartbreaking; at times humorous. In all, it was a wonderful read. Not the Great American Novel, maybe, but I loved it.

I love the way Jeffrey Archer writes, in this novel is not exception, the story abut a famous painting is very good and entertaining. I really loved it.
The story captures one interest and moves very quickly. Some of the character interactions seem undeveloped and forced, but the action keeps the story moving.
