Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book in three days and could hardly put it down. I have become interested lately in CIA and spy novels, and this book did not disappoint me in any way, in spite of what a couple reviewers below have said about it. What I loved MOST about this book is that you don't expect a CIA assassin to be a truly honorable man, as was this main character. It was really interesting how the author immediately pulls you into the assasin's mind and gets you right on his side.
The reviewers below comment on the plot being implausible--that the CIA would not go around like this assasinating world leaders. I don't think this comment is important. In any novel, we must "suspend our disbelief," and this novel is no different. The more pertinent question in this novel is "What if?" I personally thought it was one of the best plots I have ever read, and I really enjoyed how the characters were one-upping each other. I was really surprised by the twists and turns of the plot as it progressed. And I liked being surprised. An EXCELLENT read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first novel I have read by bestselling novelist Jeffrey Archer - and it will likely be the last. "The Eleventh Commandment" stretches credibility to such lengths that I lost all trust in the book. The first assault on credibility is the fact that the main character, Connor Fitzgerald, an assassin for the CIA, is a regular boy-scout kind of guy much admired for the content of his character as well as his chillingly efficient professional skill. Give me a break! Nice, normal guys, I don't think, go around murdering people in cold blood as a profession.
The author is clever at setting a good scene with authentic details and he might have sold me on the notion that nice guys can be assassins - but he couldn't sell me a wholesale lot of plot twists and turns which add up to implausibility. Connor is so smart and has so many friends that leap into the story to help him out at critical points that he outwits everyone - the CIA, the Russians, the Russian Mafya (yes, it's spelled that way) -- evading capture and execution and effortlessly finding opportunities to stalk heavily-guarded world leaders. Thus, about half-way through the book, I began to lose interest in the story and from then on I just turned pages quickly to get to the end.

Its Funny to think a person such as Jerrery Archer who has written books as Kane and Abel {which is almost a legend} to write a very mediocre book such as The 11th commandment ... The book starts off well but then it starts to the stuck in the same place for long moments and this is very frustrating and boring ...in short after i finished this book i felt very dissatisfied at the story and the very predictable ending that this book has...ahhh thats one more point the book is extremly predictable all the way .... I will not recommend this book .... look for another book from JA or many other good fiction authors ,i am not going to write a list here.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a fairly decent book it is well thought out and one tends to have sympathy for the charecters. Some very good plot twists make up for "Huh" moments any of us might suffer from.
I do have some issues with this book
1. it takes a damn long time to get anywhere, once it does it manages to clip along fairly well and the reader tends to get interested but for the first 5 chapters it is just as slow as frozen molasses in winter time. (that's a regional expression we have in the south)
2. Characters are built up and then discarded with no explanation as to where exactly it was that they went or in some cases just killed off conveniently almost as if the author got bored with them.
3. The ending (particularly the very end) is worthless and severed no point at all why I had to struggle to reach the end and find out the ansewer to a question I already knew is totally beyond me.
I did like the story I'm not saying that, its just that parts of it do have their flaws
1. I liked the supporting characters Chris Jackson and Sergi in particular the back and forth between these two is priceless.
2. The author does have a good ear for what he is talking about as far as the technical stuff is concerned I like that.
Overall-Good book but not perfect you should still consider if you are a newcomer, would be a nice introduction to this author.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like most authors of this genre, Archer starts out at a high intensity but with fairly plausible characters and plot lines for the first hundred pages, but to maintain the ever-increasing tension, the characters and the plot have to move off into never-never land. By the time you get to the last fifty pages, he's off the charts. But long before that, you're hooked on the adreneline rush and you stick with it until the end. Not a great book, but a pleasant way to kill a rainy weekend at the beach or wait out a blizzard on the ski slopes. I wouldn't buy it, but I'll read a few more of Archer's books from the library to see if they are better or worse than this one.
