My Read of the Month:
Title: The Fourth Estate
Author: Jeffrey Archer
Genre: Fiction- Political
After reading too many teachy books, I picked up this one to stimulate my creative juices and widen my worldview in the media world. Great to say that I was not disappointed as Mr Archer presented the story with such virtuoso that is mainly centred between two characters.
Mr Archer keeps you in suspense with every chapter escalating with the dueling media moguls, Richard Armstrong and Keith Townsend – the main characters. And it is alleged that these characters are resemblance of the flamboyant British publishing magnate, the late Robert Maxwell and Australian press, Rupert Murdoch.
It is an entertaining read as it provides insights into the media business and also some historical knowledge about how life was like during Hilter’s rampage against the Jews.
Who should read it: Those who enjoy reading a “rags-to-riches” story.
