Book #2: Cat O’ Nine Tales

My second secret book Santa sent me Cat O’ Nine Tales by Jeffery Archer. I’ve never read Jeffery Archer before, so thank you Secret Santa 🙂

Also, thank you for reminding me, for the millionth time in my life, that people find my name strange. *looks towards parents*


Actually, thank you parents. I like my name because it is so strange. So thank you for not giving me a cliched name that I would have eventually changed. 😀

Coming back to the book, Cat O’ Nine Tales by Jeffery Archer has 9 short stories that he picked up when he was in prison. I finished reading the first story today – “The Man Who Robbed His Own Post Office”. The title was pretty intriguing. I did enjoy the first story, and am looking forward to reading the rest of the book.

One line in the story really caught my attention

Strange how women in positions of authority so often acquire the sobriquet bossy, while a man holding the same rank is somehow invested with qualities of leadership.

This was written from the perspective of a school-boy about the head girl.

Have you ever read a Jeffery Archer? What do you think of his books?
